Reasons for trip

I have written about this restaurant, “Auberge Brasserie”:http://auberge-brasserie.com/, in Southport before but recently made three more trips to this wonderful eatery: dinner, lunch and Sunday brunch. In all the years I’ve been going to this restaurant, I had never been for lunch or Sunday brunch so they were new experiences. The food is always excellent and the staff are brilliant. This time I remembered to take pictures of our food!

My aunt, uncle and I went for dinner before a show on a Friday evening; three courses for (£19.95). Even though we did not have a reservation, they were able to seat us as we would be out and headed to our show before the people who had booked the table would be arriving. On this occasion I had the leek and potato soup, pork loin and a delicious and not sweet chocolate cake.

My aunt, uncle, my aunt’s friend and I went for lunch one Friday. As it was lunch, we stuck to two courses (£12.95). My aunt had the chicken medallions with Dauphinoise potatoes, her friend had the vegetarian option of eggplant, I had the lamb with lovely mash and vegetables and my uncle had the daily special of steak in Diane sauce and chips. For sweet we tried the white chocolate and ginger cheesecake served with ice cream and raspberries which was light and very tasty. The cheesecake had ginger in the crumb crust and chunks of stem ginger as well. My uncle had the Crème Brûlée and shortbread biscuits which was lovely too.

For Sunday brunch it is a set three courses (£14.95). For my starter I had the poached pear with walnuts and Roquefort; my aunt had the creamed mushrooms on ciabatta and my uncle had the black pudding salad. As tempting as the other roasts were, we all had the roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. The pudding was light, the beef tender, the gravy rich and flavourful and the cauliflower and potatoes (goose fat roasted) cooked just right. Even though we were pretty full, we did try the bread pudding and custard and it was divine.

Three visits to this restaurant in one month may seem excessive, but I’m only in town once a year or two so I make allowances. That and we always walk there and back home (about 1 ½ hours total) which helps to offset what we eat! Though, having said that, someone who will remain nameless, Michael, sometimes takes the bus.
The menu changes weekly so it is always interesting to see what they will have on offer.
