Location and contact

West London’s award-winning French restaurant, Le Vacherin, is shaking things up this September with some exciting changes to its management team and menu. Donna Thompson- Smith, is now sole owner. Thompson- Smith has many years of hospitality experience having previously co-owned Brasserie Vacherin in Croydon and Sutton, Cassoulet in Croydon, and Fish & Grill in Croydon and Putney. Thompson- Smith has appointed Marc Wainwright as executive chef, a decision Thompson- Smith says came easily, given Wainwright’s passion for French cuisine combined with a penchant for Asian, Japanese, Italian and Nordic ingredients, which ensure Le Vacherin’s menus continue to evolve and excite.
