New Restaurant Bavette to Open in Horsforth (1)

A new restaurant, Bavette, is set to make its debut in Horsforth this February. The exciting new bistro concept is the brainchild of Sandy Jarvis, former Managing Director and Head Chef of the Culpeper Group, and his partner, Clément Cousin, an accomplished Restaurant Manager and sommelier with past tenure at Brawn and The Buxton.

Concept and Vision

  • The inception of Bavette stems from the founders’ shared passion and extensive experience in the restaurant industry.
  • Envisioned as a warm, welcoming bistro, Bavette aims to balance exquisite food and wine in a convivial setting.

Menu Highlights

Crafted by Sandy Jarvis, the bistro’s menu emphasises seasonality and classic inspirations:

  • Starters: Indulge in an array of appetisers like homemade pâté en croûte with cornichons or comté croquettes.
  • Main Courses: Guests can enjoy sharing platters like rib of Yorkshire beef, alongside individual dishes like wild halibut with a vin jaune sauce.
  • Desserts: Conclude with decadent choices like chocolate delice or the traditional Paris–Brest.
