After being consistently served perfect food for years, I now officially declare this restaurant as the best one ever... It is traditional proper food with extremely good ingredients, cooked to absolute perfection. Being a picky eater, I can not find one single fault with it except the potato au gratin was slightly under cooked last night... well rest of the... More

I was here for a Christmas meal with colleagues. The whole thing was great from start to finish. The place was packed but the service was still really good. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was really, really good. I couldn't fault it in anyway and that's saying a lot. There were 20 of us in the group and... More

I had some of my tastiest food in my life in this restaurant. That's what I would write if I had to describe this place in one sentence. The starters, the main, even the stupid fries were delicious. Very highly recommended!

Had an excellent meal on a very busy Saturday night as the area was hosting a major rugby match in the Aviva stadium. We had a reservation and were quickly shown to our seats. The menu is very extensive so we were spoilt for choice, two of our party had steaks as the main, one had seafood platter and another... More

Booked this resteraunt because it came highly recommended. There was a great atmosphere, service was brilliant & the food was 1st class. Only thing was the 10% service charge. It was just my wife & I and I had planned to give a tip (more than the 10%) because the service was that good. Maybe it's just me, but I... More

Two of us called on a Tuesday night with no prior booking. After about 30 seconds we were brought to a table. The table was perfectly located. The menu had a significant amount of choice. The orders were taken quickly and efficiently by our waitress. The food was excellent and arrived promptly. The food was perfectly cooked and tastefully presented.... More

There are two parts to this restaurant. The cafe is at street level and offers excellent value menu in a pretty but ordinary venue. The upstairs restaurant was lovely, decked out for Christmas and offered a wonderful and unusual menu. I had a venison roast meal that was heavenly and my husband had a well presented seafood dish that was... More

Booked for 14 for a family meal post or sons graduation. As ever Rolys never fails to delight. The service was superb, and we enjoyed thoroughly. Excellent menu choice, beautifully delivered food, and a very pleasant atmosphere all all made for a memorable evening. Well done to all.

We were greeted at the door by an argument taking place between the hostess and a waiter. No apology- very unprofessional. Staff seemed very distracted. Booked for 6pm but had to ask for early bird menu. This was very reasonable. Food was very good but service was patchy. Staff seemed unhappy and were not friendly. When leaving there was no... More

I found this disappointing I expected something far more elaborate on the menu, its basic chicken, beef, port & salmon on offer type of menu. Its pricy for what you get, but a lot of people seem to like it, not for me I like to experience something different with food when I go out.
