Yummy!

Nice food, lovely atmosphere when busy. Food prices seem to be creeping up everytime i visit, which is a shame. Hope they keep up the good work though, always welcoming staff and although food takes a long time to come out with bigger parties staff cope well. Tequila tequila!

Booked last minute as we couldn't decide where to go as we aren't from the area (booked at 7 to eat at 8-15) sat at a lovely booth for 5 so plenty of room for the two of us. Very busy which we took to be a good sign, served by a new waitress who unfortunately messed up our orders... More

My wife and I had our evening meal at Rio Grande. It was our second visit and like before, thought it was perfect. The food is tasty and fiendishly filling! Great staff, great food!

We hadn't booked and our visit was a last minute thought. Having driven 20 miles we were disappointed to learn they were fully booked but we're accommodating enough to let us eat at the tables outside, and luckily enough it was a lovely summer evening. The service was good and the meals well prepared and good value. The steak I... More

We went with a large group, and a couple of the orders were very wrong, but rather than offer a replacement the staff tried to fob us off with what they had brought out. The staff were polite however, and the food that was correct was good, although you could tell that the cheaper items in the dish were plentiful,... More

Visited on a Wednesday evening in a group of 10 for a birthday celebration. Service was good when ordering & drink refills were speedy(even when different cocktails were being requested) food came out within a reasonable time. There was an initial problem that a wrong meal was served, but this was swiftly resolved. Everyone had great meals & were happy.... More
