Opened in the mid 60's during the original wave of wine bars, The Ebury has survived well, and in some ways gone from strength to strength - staff seem to stay for many years, so it operates as a 'local', where regulars are bound to meet friends. Its club-like atmosphere seems to find favour with customers of all ages.
Bar snacks range from sandwiches to whitebait, hamburgers and the like. While the restaurant menu offers more elaborate fare, such as 'Rabbit and Green Peppercorn Terrine'; 'Twice-Baked Stilton Mousse with Rocket and Walnut Salad' and 'Snails and Oyster Mushrooms with a Garlic Butter Crust' among the starters.
Perhaps to be followed by something from the grill, such as steak, corn-fed chicken or calf's liver and bacon or more intricate dishes such as 'Roasted Cod wrapped in Bayonne Ham with Savoy Cabbage'; 'Roasted Rack of Lamb, Dauphinoise Potatoes and a Thyme and Garlic Jus'; 'Wild Mushroom Risotto' and 'Pork and Herb Sausages, Mustard Mash and Onion Gravy'.
Desserts have something for the modern and the school-pud-lover. So expect 'Pear Tart Tatin with Pear Sorbet' alongside 'Treacle Sponge Pudding with Vanilla Custard'.
