Walked casually passed this hotel and notice an advert on the glistening white wall for St Thomas's beer - but the unassuming entrance caught my attention. Returned for a very late lunch and from the concierge at the glass entrance we had our first experience of the St Augustine's hotel. The decor was just fabulous and suited the taste my friend and I liked. Now to the meal - the starter was heaven sent - cucumber gazpacho with avocado and prawns - it was like eating a cloud - light, flavoursome (the mint - chilli ??undertones) words like veloute came to mind. The main course mine was good but how could you follow such perfection - rhetorical question. My friend had the gazpacho too followed by wild boar ragout - he said it was the best meal he had ever had. The service was crisp but welcoming with plenty of smiles - even the green tea was served perfectly. My friend had the St Thomas's beer and as a real ale fan really enjoyed it - I had a tiny taste and I knew it was clear and hoppy. This one experience (my birthday by the way) was superb - so much so that on the basis of just one meal I want to return and stay at this hidden away real gem.
