“Tea with Class”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

As it happened to be Afternoon tea celebration I thought I should partake in some myself and booked the Aubrey to experience it there (had tea at The Dorchester and Harrods etc already). I have to say it was such a peaceful, pleasant and throughout tasty experience. Everything we tried from the tea to the finger sandwiches to the sweets were amazing. The service was superb and the ambience great. I will be going again and would recommend looking out for a deal like I did (2 for 1) so when the bill comes you will smile just as I did.

“A Special Night Out”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

We visited the Aubrey as part of the London Restaurant Fortnight and had a three course meal for £25 each. Although the special menu was limited and not the full a la carte, the food was outstanding. Two starter butternut squash soups and two smoked haddock fishcakes were beautifully presented and very tasty. Salmon and chicken followed. That sounds like any other restaurant, but the chef had made both dishes special and wonderfully tender and delicious both to the eye and to the stomach. We ended with creme brulee and chocolate brownie but again served elegantly and beautifully. A nice wine, great and unrushed service with a smile and a wonderful dining room made it a special evening out in London. Worth taking a chance - I would love to try out the a la carte menu next time.

“Wonderful food, attentive staff and great attention to detail”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

We booked an early diiner here as we were going to the Royal Albert Hall. From the moment we arrived we felt it was special. The hotel lounges had roaring fires, and a mixture of work colleagues, and ladies enjoying cream teas. We were shown to the bar where we sat and chose from the menu. We weren't hurried, but given time to browse. The restaurant was empty when we got in there, but had a nice feel to it. A book case on one side, nice lighting, occasional cushions etc. The food was excellent. I had the peppered goats cheese to start. It came with a rocket and pine nut salad and beetroot. Very tasty. The bread was warm and had a nice mixture of white and wholmeal and a nutty type bread. For mains I ate the pan fried cod, which was cooked to perfection, it came with wilted spinach, a leek and potato layered cake and a mustard sauce which was delecate and did not detract from the flavour of the fish. My partner had the mixed grill, which was beautifully presented on a wooden board, and huge. He was pleased he had decided not to go for a starter. He said the meat, without exception, was very good quality and extremely tasty. It also came with an egg, hollandaise sauce, and a basket of twice cooked chips. After all that we decided against desserts, but with our coffees were given two beautiful home made chocolates. Our server was friendly and seemed to time her visits to our table to perfection, not intruisive, but on hand when we wanted her. All in all it was a great dining experience, and we would happily return.
