Aubergine at the Compleat Angler

Squaremeal Review of Aubergine at the Compleat Angler ?

Its famous Chelsea namesake is long gone, but this younger sibling soldiers on within the lush confines of the Compleat Angler in Buckinghamshire. The setting is gorgeous – an elegant room in a pretty hotel by the banks of the Thames, with the river cascading over Marlow weir past leaded windows. The cooking is spot on, too – finely wrought and beautifully presented French food backed up by a wonderful wine list, an enticing cheese trolley and smooth, seamless service. Recent hits have included a deeply satisfying starter of lobster tortellini with courgettes and a slick of lobster butter sauce, and a dish of aged beef fillet and ox cheek – cooked to perfection and complemented by truffle and foie gras cromesquis, spinach purée and Madeira jus. After that, finish in classic style with a textbook blueberry soufflé and banana ice cream.

William Drabble gone and Miles Nixon is producing excellent plates of food. We have eaten about four times in the last couple of months and he deserves to be up there with some of the best. Canape, amuse bouche and pre-dessert always included with a la carte menu and even these are superbly executed with great depth of flavour – no shyness with flavours and seasoning to be found here. Not many one stars can claim all this. Each time, he has served to impeccable consistent standard…a bit of an alchemist...

This is fine dining at it's very best, with a fabulous tasting menu and great service. Romantic and cosy, with views of the weir, the restaurant is relaxing but still has a “buzz”. It can only be a matter of time before Miles Nixon and his team are granted the Michelin star they so deserve!

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...

Having being to the Chelsea original I had high expectations and was not disappointed in any way. The restaurant is relatively small but the atmosphere is perfect for a romantic meal or a meal with friends. The only downside is that we were situated next to a false wall which connected with the lounge area. A large group on the other side were noisy and this clearly audible on some occasions. The service was first class, attentive and always willing to meet your needs. Being interested in cheese,...
