Had a meal at this restaurant earlier in the year (spring/summer'12) with my grandmother which was incredible: the food was exquisite and incredibly well presented and although not the cheapest it was well worth the money, it was the kind of menu and food I'd expect to find in a Michelin restaurant in London however upon returning in December this had changed beyond recognition.
I am not from the town personally so went on a recommendation from a friend the first time and was not let down at all! but on returning in December the restaurant was like a different place. The menu was no longer high quality fine dining but more expensive pub grub poorly cooked and badly presented! Is the restaurant under new management? New chef? Whatever has changed has ruined the high regard in which I'd held it earlier in the year.
In conclusion I will not be returning to The Avenue nor will I be recommending it to anyone! A terrible shame to what was once a spectacular restaurant in a small town.
