Greg and Anna Davis review the table in Woodbridge
Spring had certainly sprung as we wandered through Woodbridge on a glorious April evening en route to the table for our latest restaurant review.
The table, which opened in 2012, is an informal eaterie/brasserie serving freshly cooked high quality food with great flavours and often has a South East Asian influence to some dishes. Over the years the restaurant has grown in popularity, with guests returning time after time. The menus change regularly and are overseen by Pascal Pommier, who is Executive Chef.
The outside area has been really developed over time and now has a number of different seating areas creating a beautiful courtyard that also houses the Street Food Sundays. With music, laughter and great food, these Sundays will be kicking off again on Sunday 28th of May.
A key element to the dining experience at the table is being relaxed. Having dined there a number of times in the past with friends, we always comment on the calm vibe, friendly staff and relaxed ambience. No stuffy stand-on-ceremony pretence here. The restaurant has 3 main eating rooms and a welcoming bar as you arrive inside. The shabby chic mixed furniture and low ceilings combined with the chat and laughter throughout the building create a warm involving atmosphere. There were smiles a-plenty from all the staff as we were shown to our table and pointed in the direction of the specials board. Some of the starter specials on offer on the day we dined included tempura king prawns, chilli jam, crème fraiche at £7.50, sweet potato, red onion & aubergine bhajis with mint and mango yoghurt also at £7.50 and a lamb hash, poached egg, red wine jus at £6.50.
