The Restaurant at Aviator Hotel

Squaremeal Review of The Restaurant at Aviator Hotel ?

From the outside, this slick modern building might be mistaken for the HQ of a hi-tech company rather than a boutique hotel overlooking an airfield. It certainly scores high in the cool stakes, & gives a nod to the world of the private jet – note the swish, sexy lobby with its circular tiered floor ascending skyward. The clean-cut bar/brasserie also looks good with its low lighting & fashionable cream leather seating, & the food is as snappily dressed as the surroundings – witness pan-fried sea bass teamed with white onion purée, wild mushrooms, seasonal greens & red wine sauce, or a robust dish of braised pork belly with sauerkraut, crispy potato & caramelised apple purée. Desserts yo-yo between baked vanilla cheesecake & pineapple tarte Tatin. This smart package also includes a bar menu, a first-floor cocktail bar (evenings only) & a terrace.

Went for dinner at the Aviator and could not have been more disappointed by the service and staff. Complete amateurs with no idea about customer service or top end hospitality. Food was average at best, starter was very bland and steak tasty but incorrectly cooked. Staff not at all attentive, supervisor simply rude and unhelpful blaming my poor feedback on my choice of foods! Reception on first floor with no signage and toilets 5minute walks from the restaurant! In all, needs a complete overhaul...

I visited the Aviator for lunch today and would thoroughly recommend the restaurant and from what I saw the hotel. Service was friendly and I loved the look and feel of the hotel. The attention to detail in the decor is excellent; this would be an ideal venue for business lunch as it is minutes from the M3. I opted for the Chefs recommendation shoulder of lamb, saffron cous cous and Moroccan spiced jus it was delicious and full of flavour at £14.50 it is also very good value. Bread was served with...

The number of decent restaurants this close to Aldershot can be counted on the fingers of one foot, so I was quite keen to try this, on a Sunday, with my wife and daughter. The building outside is aggressively modern and looked rather deserted. On venturing inside, through automatic doors, again it looked deserted until a porter spotted us and showed us to the restaurant, to a friendly greeting from the lady at the desk. To avoid undue repetition, I will say here that all the staff we dealt with...
