We have eaten here lots over the years and it has always been excellent. Sadly, not so on our most recent visit. The staff are helpful, the ambience is good but it was a really disappointing experience. I was very surprised on Saturday late morning and book a table for 8pm the same evening but when we arrived it was... More

Having had several good experiences here in the past, we'd booked to have a small family celebration. Imagine our horror and distress upon turning up and being told our booking had been lost, the restaurant was full and nothing else available. Although the manager was present he/she didn't come to apologise. With only a vague offer of vouchers should we... More

This is a superb little restaurant that I would highly recommend. The food is top notch and there are lots of choices all presented extremely well and tasted as good as it looks. What makes this restaurant is value for money. It has a set price and normally this means little choice and not available on a weekend but not... More

Very quiet, but early evening and the night before Valentines, so possibly to be expected. However, was not prepared for it to be so cool inside. Food was tasty but nothing special. Decor & furniture OK. Service decent enough, then again we were only ones there when we arrived (two others came in mid meal). Fairly wide choice on menu.... More

Ok firstly credit where it's due. The food was lovely and the staff albeit thin on the ground were friendly and worked hard. What's wrong then? THE PLACE WAS FREEZING!!!!! OK I know it's January but it felt like we was sat outside. Shivering whilst eating really does take away the romance of a rare night out for my wife... More

This was my first visit here but I had heard so much about it. When we arrived i thought it was a bit small but we got a lovely table upstairs. I went with friends but I would love to return with the husband When the menu came there were many things that looked good. The food arrived and it... More

This restaurant was picked for me and I knew nothing about it beforehand. My initial impression of the menu was it was a bit pretentious and seemed to be style over substance. One dish that caught my eye was the starter of ‘curried haddock risotto’ which from the description sounded like kedgeree to me. However, I decided to order this... More

We visited on Christmas Day 2016, 4 adults and 3 children.The food was just ok, the waiting staff thin on the ground but worked hard. Firstly the table sat behind us were asked if they could vacate their table as they had another booking, to be informed by the guests that they were still waiting for their deserts! When we... More

We visited La Rue this lunchtime for Sunday Lunch.On arrival we thought the actual restaurant looked a little tired and there was a large tool box in the middle of the floor ( which stayed there all lunchtime) We were given menus ( my Sunday lunch page was missing) To be honest at that point we nearly left as we...

Can't deny that the service was superb - created nicely and taken to our table of 9 which was latex out nicely. The menu looked good and my whole family had a nice starter and main. I just felt that for the expensive price it was it wasn't worth it. Especially my meal - I ordered a steak medium rare... More

We are a modern contempary English restaurant serving quality fresh dishes. We prepare all our products from our kitchen and use locally sourced products from award winning suppliers, including the fantastic Saltaire Blond on tap. Our ethos has always been value for money and we serve a house menu that cannot be matched in our opinion for a wide range of styles and dishes. Our menu contains a very good selection of fish which is delivered on a daily basis.
