I went to Aunbrey some time ago and had one of the best fine dining experiences I have had. The restaurant does not look much from the outside but the food and service are brilliant. Not cheap but well worth the cost for special occasion.

A lovely little restaurant, some excellent touches, wonderful attentive service, delightful well sourced food. Its a shame my partner broke her tooth on the first mouthful of crusty bread, and that the cut of longhorn beef wasn't quite up to its billing, but we had a really pleasant dining experience.

on arrival we were seated upstairs, and given water infused with cucumber, nibbles and tasters - peas soaked in vinegar? tasty. wine menu was extensive and the waitress had a good knowledge of the wines on offer - time was taken to find out likes, dislikes and allergies and according to preferences the wines suggested were very palatable . We tried the taster menu at £45 per person. only one criticism - the hake was luke warm. I didn't experience an explosion of taste which I was fully expecting but on the whole the ambience, décor and attention to detail was impeccable. Last but not least, the card machine was not working so we waited around 25 minutes until we got to pay for our meal, a little tip Aumbrey - if this happens again do offer your customers a complimentary tea, coffee, or house wine while you sort it out. an enjoyable first visit.

Booked a romantic meal for two and took my husband. Although we live nearby it was our first visit there, greeted by a very friendly waitress who seated us upstairs and brought bowls of homemade aperitifs. Their cava is wonderful, a nice and less expensive alternative to Champagne and very delicious. Care is taken to ask about food allergies and preferences. We had the 5 course taster menu that they do on a Tuesday. Incredible value for money (£25), the mackerel, soup and beef that we had were amazing, fresh baked bread and a choice of butters too. Dessert was the best tasting panna cotta I've ever had. I would highly recommend and definitely go back, considering we paid 80 for a meal recently at a local Turkish restaurant it really isn't much more expensive. Absolute quality. Will re-book later in the year for the a la carte.
