The restaurant was festively decorated for christmas,with a nice ambience.we ordered from the three course menu,where there was at least 3/4 choices.this also included a glass of processo on arrival.
Starters were good with lovely crusty bread,unfortunately the main course was let down by the vegetables. The parsnips were hard and inedable,and the sprouts were tasteless.the dessert was very nicely presented and delicious.
The staff were attentive,and we were not rushed throughout the meal.
Overall it was a pleasant lunch,which could be improved by better cooked vegetables.
Great food for pee theatre xx timing just right. Service impeccable. Thank you.
Bloomin marvellous! Pre theatre meal in the Lanes. 3 course taster menu with glass of bubbles £30 for the 2 of us. We both had pate followed by steak & chips & one had brulee and the other tarte au citron. Perfectly cookec & just the right size portions for us. Thanks Cafe Rouge xx
Lovely food, good atmosphere and attentive staff
Excellent we had the £12.95 three course offer and it was very good value and everything was cooked okay
What a disapointment the deal was for a set menue I had the Mackerel Rilletts meant to be smoked mackeral (but didn't want the pickeled cucumber as Allergicto vinger did explain) nothing in place of cucumber , well there was fish in it but it was not smoked mackerel ( been a chief I know) two bit of bread and just enough to cover bread very small portion and contained red unions not needed with smoked ??? , Main I had 5 oz steak with fries and a bit of rocket didn't get choice on how steaak was cooked but rare was ok with me . Cost to produce these two courses would have been no more than £3.00 prob less . Charged 12-95 that is over a 300% mark up . so in total was not going to pay £3.00 for desert . All in all complete and utter rip of .
Warm friendly environment, nicely decorated for Christmas which created a nice atmosphere. The food was OK but not exceptional. I was disappointed with the mixed fruit crumble because their was hardly any crumble, just a sprinkle on the top. The service was quite good but we didn't have any serviettes and we weren't given any sugar with our coffee. Overall it was a pleasant dining experience.
Myself and my friends had a very enjoyable 2 hour Christmas lunch at the restaurant. I was given a window seat as requested and the service was unobtrusive but excellent! Will definitely be back!
Food was fine, though some things expensive for what you got. Service seemed like they did not care.
