In the Spring of 2002 Henry realised a dream to have his own restaurant. With a childhood of good eating and 8 years under the tutelage and guidance of Simon Hopkinson, Henry developed a passion for good Bourgeois French cooking. So, with a couple of like-minded individuals Henry went back to his roots and opened Racine Restaurant - serving exactly the food he had always dreamt of being able to eat in a favourite restaurant, the neighbourhood restaurants and Brasseries of Paris and the Bouchons of Lyon, proving as much an inspiration as the mountains of the Pyrenees and the Oyster beds of the Atlantic coast.
Today Racine has firmly established itself as a favourite neighbourhood French restaurant, serving carefully sourced, well cooked seasonal dishes, along with a short but great wine list and warm attentive service.
