Côte Welwyn Garden City will reopen on Saturday, May 7 following a total refurbishment of the restaurant.

The new look offers a refreshed, contemporary yet elegant French-inspired interior. 

To mark the launch, Côte WGC will be offering the first 50 guests a free praline or espresso Martini crêpe –  simply by stating a secret phrase on arrival. Scroll to the bottom of this story for the secret phrase!

The town centre establishment is one of the first among Côte’s 85 restaurants to undergo planned revamps as part of the French brasserie group’s brand evolution programme.

Alongside a reinvigorated menu, created by new executive head chef Steve Allen, fans of Côte Welwyn Garden City will see an expanded outdoor seating area for the summer with added planters and café screens for the perfect al fresco dining experience.

Inside, guests will discover an elegant and modernised restaurant design inspired by classic French interiors. 

Normandy artist Claire de Quénetain has worked to deliver the spirit of France with a series of bespoke mural artworks throughout the restaurant.
