Yep, first visit to Augustus, good position out of the way. It's more contemporary in feel than traditional, and I found the staff more than keen to do the necessary right through the meal. Atmosphere midweek was busier and more animated than expected, no bad thing! Food was good, just the right portion size, and cooked and presented well...really nothing... More

On a Thursday night in February this restaurant was still full and it made us wish that we knew somewhere just the same in London. My sister's Fowey scallops were well received and my terrine, made of unusual ingredients such as cheese and bacon, were enjoyed by me. For the main course we both had the duck, incredibly tender, just... More

I just love the new edition to this restaurant with a now permanent glass box attached to the building. It virtually doubles the size of the place and my favorite table is in this outside space with a cosy inside feel.

My husband very kindly took me to Augustus for my 30th birthday meal. He had been recommended by a work colleague and we were not disappointed. The ambiance, service and most importantly the food were all first class. We had a really lovely evening and we'll definitely be back! Will highly recommend!

A mid week spur of the moment supper and we were lucky to arrive to find a table free following a cancellation. We ordered a delicious delicately flavoured turbot and tasty rich stew. Fantastic friendly service as ever. We reminded ourselves to get more organised and make a reservation here more often.
