Visited The Brasserie at Ellenborough Park on a Saturday evening in February this year, for my Birthday. After reading previous reviews on Trip Advisor for The Brasserie, I really had mixed reviews & wasn't sure what to expect.
I had rung ahead to request a different main course option, as I didn't particularly like the current Vegetarian option. The lady on the phone was most helpful & assured me that my request would be no problem & Chef would be happy to help! I later received an email confirmation, as promised confirming this-so far so good!
When arriving at Ellenborough Park with my parents & fiancé, the staff were very friendly & smiley, service was quick & attentive as our drinks were served at the bar area. The atmosphere was relaxed, but with a classy feel about it.
We were seated at our table where the waitress advised me that they were aware of the main course I had preordered & she recommended a vegetarian stater too. It really felt that nothing was too much trouble.
Our Starters arrived & were absolutely delicious!! Mine tasted like gold!! I had truffle button mushrooms with a tasty little side salad & beautiful home baked bruschetta bread. It was Devine! Large portions. My Dad had beautiful salmon-again a large piece cooked to perfection, he said he couldn't fault it. My Mum had a sort of Tapas starter with tomato relish, tapenade & bruschetta, that was also lovely & arrived on a wooden board. My fiancé had ham hock terrine which was also recommended & was very tasty indeed.
Our plates were cleared quickly & glasses kept topped up throughout the meal. Our mains & deserts were also superb, substantial portions, beautiful homemade beef burgers, perfectly seasoned chips & wonderful cod lion. The desserts were also great-mine complete with candle & happy Birthday, written in chocolate!
I really cannot fault anything. Excellent value for money (starters between £6-7 & main courses £11-17.) Staff were excellent, a quick turn of the head & they'd be straight over. Plates were hot & food delicious! Definitely worth a visit.
I am so pleased that our experience at The Brasserie was so great-as next April we are having our Wedding Reception up at Ellenborough Park. I know now we have most definitely made the right choice choosing Ellenborough! Thank you all for a fantastic Birthday! We will be back.
