Visited restaurant bar and grill for my wife's birthday with friends. Just for drinks - bottle of champagne. Fresh strawberries and blackberries on ice to share with the champagne recommended. Outside terrace was very busy. Had to sit inside but still enjoyed the visit.

The mains were steaks, tuna, goats cheese salad and i had the Dover... More

I used to always be a regular at RBG over the years, decided to dine here before a concert, the restaurant wasn't too busy. I ordered the duck salad for starter, when it arrived I thought it was a joke that the kitchen staff were playing on me?! The size of the dish was minute, and I honestly got about... More

Overall had an amazing lunch at Restaurant Bar and Grill. We decided to take advantage of the weather, with the lunch menu on offer which was £15 for two courses. Upon arriving my friend & I proceeded to go upstairs and a woman screamed at us 'ARE YA DININ' so we didn't really get if she was speaking to us... More

Cannot comment on the food but there is no better place to drink than out on the balcony on a sunny day or mild evening. Little expensive but you get what you pay for.
