Chilterns Baillage Inaugural Lunch

October 17, 2015

Maître-Restaurateur, Xavier LeBellego, welcomes us to The Launch of The Chilterns Bailliage with a lunch in his French influenced restaurant on Reading’s Forbury Square. This is French cooking with a touch of modernity. Xavier is a founder member of the new Chilterns Bailliage.

Xavier, who came to England in 1991 “to learn the language”, has a CV that reads like a Who’s Who of the restaurant world, having worked with Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, the Roux brothers, “French Leave” celebrity chef, John Burton-Race and also Sir Terence Conran. Forbury’s has a great following and this lunch is sure to be popular.

Wine is one of Xavier’s passions and he has carefully chosen from a list of 240 wines those that he feels perfectly match each course. Forbury’s has gained the AA’s Notable Wine List Award and last year was Reading City Restaurant of the Year.

This event has already received a great deal of interest, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

We look forward to welcoming you.


Barney Quinn, Bailli and the Chilterns Team.
