    Disappointing lunch. Have eaten here several times before and been very happy, but not this time. Soup was luke warm and accompanying bread was rock hard as though it had been badly reheated to disguise the fact it was stale. Should have complained but no one came to ask whether everything was ok, and I hate making a fuss. I won't be going back for a while.

    Tiny portions. My wife had a mushroom main meal that had ONE mushroom. My meal was stone cold.

    Lovely old converted house. Friendly service. Dellicious 'lite bite' lunch, sitting in courtyard.

    Great food, great service and a thoroughly enjoyable evening. We had a main and dessert, both of which were delicious. The staff were really friendly and catered to all our needs with a smile on their face. I would definitely recommend Roots as a place to eat with loved ones, friends or as a group. Thanks for a lovely meal.

    Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Food was lovely. Restaurant was very clean and something slightly different.
