Its pretty average as a bar - I'm commenting on the Waterloo version - just opposite the station next to the 3i building. If I was going to spend time in SE1, I'd go to Baltic
or Tas or Mar i Sol or pubs like the Leather Exchange - my personal opinion is that Auberge
is a small pub chain hoping to be taken-over by a big pub-chain (an All Bar One
, etc) and as such has done as little as possible to differentiate itself from any other boring bar you might find.
I made the mistake of reading a TimeOut review of Auberge
which was positive and taking a date there - only to find out how crap it was - which is my fault for trusting TO - but in essence - if you are looking for a good night / and-or looking to impress - you can do a lot better in the area
