Patisserie shut for third day

Maison Blanc in the heart of Henley

A PATISSERIE in Henley remains shut today (Friday) for the third day in a row.

Blinds at Maison Blanc, at the junction of Duke Street and Hart Street, have not been opened since Wednesday.

Last November the Henley Standard reported that its future was uncertain.

It was one of 13 branches involved in a “strategic review” being carried out by the owners together with the company’s production facility in London.

Maison Blanc is part of Kout Food Restaurants, which is owned by the Kuwait-based Kout Food Group.

It is understood that staff were told about the review but it was not clear at the time whether any outlets that were felt to be surplus to requirements would be sold or closed.

Property agent Davis Coffer Lyons carried out the six-week review, which also involved six outlets in London as well as those in Oxford, Farnham, Burford, Winchester, Guildford and Chichester.

Maison Blanc was created in 1981 by Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc but he is no longer part of the business.

The Henley outlet opened in 2009 at the former site of the Toni & Guy hairdressing salon.
