La Petite AubergeWell worth a visit
Posted 13 August 2012 - 01:36 PM
My wife and I had an excellent meal at the Auberge on Saturday evening and the place was full, and it would seem with many regulars. The restaurant is the width of only a 'two-up, two-down' townhouse and easy to miss. It has only 30 covers and as you might expect from such a small restaurant like this the seating is fairly close together (but then so is Artichoke's and at almost twice the price and no better food!) To make up for this it has a warm and friendly feel to it with the owner and staff helping to promote this. It is not at all stuffy or pretentious and serves good quality, well cooked food with a good wine list all at reasonable prices (at least reasonable by todays standards). The owner/chef is French which is reflected in the menu.
Perhaps the place is a well kept secret which is why I've not read a report.

It was quiet mid-week with only eight other diners there so the closeness of the seating was not important. Service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive and the waiting time was fine for a relaxed evening. Not cheap - just on £100 for two of us, 3 courses, coffee, wine and service
And, yes, the food was excellent.
