Review on Pulpo Negro
Occupying a former Estate Agents, Pulpo Negro meaning black octopus is set in a handsome white painted townhouse in the picturesque town of Aylesbury in Hampshire. It is run by husband and wife team, Marie-Lou and chef Andres Alemany from the multi-award winning pub The Purefoy Arms in Preston Candover. Now operating an authentic Spanish tapas restaurant, they are once again picking up culinary gongs, a Michelin Bib Gourmand, two AA Rosettes and the Good Food Guide 2019 Award for the Best Local Restaurant in the South East England.
Inside it has been transformed into a cosy venue, with a refurbished cellar bar, ideal for pre-dinner drinks. Featuring exposed brick walls and illuminated by dangling filament lighting, rustic wooden tables are laid out on rough floorboards and an open kitchen adds to the buzzy atmosphere.
The kitchen sends out an array of tapas, executed with great flavours, style and enthusiasm making excellent use of the abundance of produce from local artisan suppliers. Pigs Trotter croquetas, Chicken thighs, capers and almonds, Chalkstream Farm Trout, Broad beans and ermesanda are just some of the delights on the menu, alongside a good selection of Spanish wines.
