We visited on a sunny Friday evening and the place was buzzing with after work drinkers which created a great atmosphere. The bar staff were plentiful and efficient so we didn't wait long for refreshment. We were seated outside next to the canal on a lovely terrace and the service and food was impeccable. We shared the shoulder of lamb... More

Tonight I went to the rotunda for a meal with friends however after having good food (pea soup & duck egg followed by the steak) it was let down by the very poor service I received at the end of the night. At the end of the night I went to settle my tab. The bill came to 33% more... More

Dear Scott, Firstly, I really appreciate you taking the time writing your feedback and highlighting how good your food was. You are very much correct in questioning an overcharge on your bill and I must apologise if the manager on duty came a cross over defensive. Our bar team are usually very efficient and deal with busy Fridays without issues... More

Rotunda, by the canal, is the perfect place to spend an afternoon. My office had a burst pipe so thought what better place to spend a few hours in the glorious sunshine! After a delicious bangers and mash, I decided to stick around for the afternoon working on the terrace and couldn't have chosen a better location for a mobile... More

Ok so I get annoyed when people say a place is terrible - so this is about my experience of tonight. I have no idea if it was a once off because I will never go back. So please feel free to ignore my comments and move onto a glowing review. We booked a table at this restaurant (more a... More

Had a lovely celebratory dinner with a group of work colleagues, after working so hard on a key project over the past four weeks, and it worked perfectly. Centrally located for all of us to get to/ from work/ home, as so close to Kings X station; reasonably priced and lovely buzzy feel and fabulous view of the canal; also,... More

Rotunda is perfectly placed for an early summer evening drink and meal. The terrace is canalside and the chugging up and down the canal of the narrowboats is a relaxing backdrop. Getting the table was a bit torturous as my reservation was lost twice but the restaurant manager was very helpful in getting it sorted out. I shared the shoulder... More

I returned to Rotunda for a birthday dinner with my family. Every aspect of the food was perfect, with the T-bone steak in particular cooked to perfection and with a flavour second to none. We really enjoyed the wine recommended by our truly excellent waitress, Giovanna - a Malbec perfectly matched to the food and astonishingly good value for the... More

Visited this restaurant with colleagues and took advantage of the Tuesday 2 for 1 offers on a cocktail, good few beers and both red and white wines. Sat outside with a picturesque view of the canal.

Two of us arrived just after 7pm on a Friday, without a booking. The bar was packed and very noisy, full of people letting off steam after work. After a cheerful greeting we were shown to a table by the window with a picturesque view of the canal. We were offered both a full menu and the early evening set... More
