My husband and I visited Aubergine at the Compleat Angler having read the excellent reviews posted here and elsewhere and found it as brilliant as we had hoped.
Service was faultless, especially the excellent Maitre D' who made us feel very welcome, showed us to a lovely table and checked on us just the right amount! Other staff were attentive and knowledgeable and made us feel equally welcome.
The food was outstanding; my first grouse of the season arrived as a perfectly roasted breast and croquette made of the leg meat – both totally divine. My husband's fillet of beef was equally superb, an again offered with well judged, well cooked and delicious garnish. Puddings were good but the 9/10 I have given for food is down to an overly caremlised tarte tatin which was thus rather bitter.
For me the lighting in the dining room made for a slightly less the perfect atmosphere but this is an entirely subjective view and would absolutely not prevent a return visit. And whilst dinner here is not cheap, it is great value given the quality of the food & service.
We loved Aubergine and I would suggest it is ideal for a romantic dinner or any kind of special occasion.
