It was lovely - not a great amount of choices - which meant I had to choose something I wouldn’t normally eat. The salmon was amazing x

Beautifully decorated bar/restaurant (very White Lotus), airy big rooms, good variety of seating and areas to dine in. Service was very good, staff all lovely, couldn't be more helpful. Provided complimentary fizz as it was an occasion, which was a welcome surprise. Food was well cooked, presented and extremely flavorful. No complaints, we'll be back.

What a beautiful restaurant and what a lovely experience. We arrived early for my Brother’s birthday meal as we had travelled a long way and the staff were very accommodating brining our booking forward. The food was delicious and hot, the staff were very friendly and the restaurant was extremely clean. Overall brilliant experienced, would go back in a heart beat.

Had the Sunday roast and really exceeded expectations, very generous portions and beef was cooked perfectly with a really rich tasty gravy. Excellent selection of sides with it, roasties, Yorkshire pudding and greens. Nice selection of starters and topped off with puddings, needless to say very well fed. Wine was good value and good selection too. 3 courses for two plus wine, less than £100 really good value. Would recommend and return

Food was lovely. Staff very friendly and helpful. Only issue was the length of time taken for two coffees to arrive. The two of us drinking wine instead of coffee were nearly finished by the time they arrived
Would definitely go back

First time visit since rebrand and really pleasantly surprised and how much it’s changed. Bar area is lovely as were the cocktails and food and service very attentive. Sat in the Whisky room for drinks after dinner which was very relaxed… look forward to our next visit.

Lovely decor with nice ambiance and great cocktails. However food was disappointing, definitely average and not worth the price. We’ve had much better, delicious food in other similarly priced restaurants. Would go back but only for drinks.

Fabulous location, very stylish, really good atmosphere and the service was excellent. However, disappointed with the set menu steak, which I’ve tried twice now. Not very good quality and not worth the price tag.
Tried it both medium/rare and rare.
Shouldn’t be difficult to serve a decent steak.
All the other food I have had has been fabulous, especially the Cod - it was delicious!

The food was good and the table that we sat at was very nice. The waiter that was bringing our food out seemed in a bit of a rush. He wasn’t literally throwing the plates down, but it just wasn’t great. I was not given a knife for the main course and had to ask for this. When I paid the bill it’s was £62, I asked to add on 10 percent and the waitress said “so I’ll just make it £80, sorry I’m terrible at maths”. Not a huge deal but again not great. So over all not terrible but not great, just ok.

What a great place did I say the food was good and all staff were amazing the only thing I would change on the table is the salt and pepper looked very poor compared to rest of the table settings but other than that don’t change anything

It’s not the first time I have been given the table up next to the kitchen door. Considering I booked this approx 8 weeks ago I expected to get a better table. The restaurant was markably cool on entry and the seat had a constant cold draught. We ordered sourdough bread but this was delivered along with our starters. Scallop portion was a bit poor for £12.50. Steak, pork and Kiev were all good. Burger was a bit tasteless. This is my 4th visit since reopening and I think my poorest experience. Hopefully a one off as I have recommend a number of people to try R & F.
