Description: Created by TAG group in 2008, Aviator is one of the most striking design hotels of recent times, its innate style binding the timeless glamour of aviation with seductive interiors and ultimate comfort.The elegant Brasserie is home to classic seasonal cuisine, inspired by fresh, locally produced foods. Cream leather armchairs, six seater banquettes and light filled spaces create the perfect setting to while away time with family and friends, and in the evening the addition of glowing lanterns lends a more intimate ambience. Within the Brasserie sit two of the hotel’s private dining rooms, exemplifying the allure of the dining experience. Created for special occasions and private meetings, these are the ideal home for a new 5 course Tasting Menu, served accompanied by paired wines selected by Philippe Larue of l'Art du Vin.

“Tasting menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We visited and had the £65 tasting menu without paired wines. There was 8 courses in total- all of which were fantastic. The food was explained in great detail by our waiter before we started eating which was good. The presentation is great. All the staff were very friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend the tasting menu- however make sure you are hungry! The portions are big! We are looking forward to returning to try some food off the standard menu.

“Good value tasting/wine menu with great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Booked the 8 course tasting menu with a colleague, which at £65 or £95 with pairing wines is really good value. They were certainly not stingy with the portions or with the wine, and although some of the courses perhaps 'tried too hard' - still not quite sure how the little bits of would compliment my pork belly - the overall quality of the food was excellent. No - this is not a Michelin Starred restaurant, but then they are not charging Michelin Starred prices either.
The service was absolutely spot on, and according to previous comments, staff training has been on the agenda. This has certainly worked. From the greeting to the handover as well as our wine waiter and our waitress, everyone were smiling, friendly, jovial without being overfamiliar and really appeared to care that we had a great evening.
For some really good food in a funky setting with great service at a reasonable price, I shall definitely be back. Well done

“Food was good, watch the drink prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Spent a very nice bank holiday Monday evening eating a 3 course meal at a very reasonable price. However the drinks were about double that to a regular restaurant for the same products and will be the reason for not returning. The setting was pleasant and quiet, however these can be had elsewhere.

“different venue, good food, good service again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Used to go here regularly but the service had gone down hill gradually & I was finally put off very much by a distinct lack of service in the sky bar one night however the food has always been good & on a visit last Friday (sky bar avoided) would say that the service has improved greatly & the food was superb. I will go again & report back on the bar too. It's not cheap there but it is a nice venue & the food is consistently good, it was just that lack of good service that let it down, very disappointing if you are spending a lot of money for a special night. Hopefully they will maintain the service again now to match the excellently produced food coming from the kitchen.

“Total wow factor!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

We totally love The Aviator & visit as regularly as finances allow! The whole place is so impressive with real wow factor! Amazing decor & lighting. You are always made to feel like a celebrity & staff cannot do enough to please. Food is excellent & we feel fortunate to have such a great place fairly near to where we live. We defy anyone not to feel the same way! Well done The Aviator.
