Our first night in N. Ireland and we came here for dinner... casual and comfortable and very affordable. Service was great. The wine list , while limited, was attractively priced. Centrally located in the town, handy to and from other areas of town.

Arrived at lunchtime looking for some sandwiches and drinks. The waitress handed us two greasy printed menus and shortly after took our order. After a few minutes she returned saying that they had run out of bread which seemed very surprising. We decided to leave and were paying for our drinks when the bar man profusely apologised and explained that... More

Firstly I would like to apologise for the service that you received on your recent visit to Red. Having read your review I was appalled to hear that you were refused a sandwich. Having investigated with our staff, it has come to light that it was a Sunday when you visited and that our chef would have been busy preparing... More

The starters are great. They come out fine. The staff are pleasant too. However come the mains thats when it goes downhill. Be ready to wait, and wait and wait. Its not bad when it comes but not worth the wait or the money. There is better just out of town. A common theme with Newry these days.

Was looking forward to eating in Red and I have to say I wasn't disappointed. Came in to a lovely warm restaurant and was seated right away. Staff where so helpful and constantly checking where we ok. The food was beautiful and anything we wanted extra was no problem. First class and will definately go back again

Recently had my daughters christening in RED. Cannot speak highly enough of the venue and the attentiveness from the staff. From my initial enquiry with Leona the manger right through to us leaving we couldn't have asked to be looked after any better. RED supplied us with a buffet for the occasion which was not only very reasonably priced but... More

I have given RED so many chances to redeem themselves. Last two occasions I have been sick physically afterwards and witnessed someone else recently been sick a few hours after eating in it. The service is appalling for staff that have worked in Newry hospitality for long enough to know better.. That said I have been to this establishment when... More

To be sick after one visit to a restaurant would be considered reason enough to never return. As a consumer myself that is how I would react. But for you to allege that you have been sick on your last two visits is really quite unbelievable and unfair. To mention that a "friend" was also sick is just a step... More

The atmosphere was dead. The food was overpriced and absolutely disgusting. We are a family of five and every one hated the food. Overall, I advise against eating at RED.

I find it very hard to fathom that a family of five visit a restaurant, that every single member of the party finds their meals disgusting and that not one of the party complained to staff, not one. As for the allegation of being over priced, absolutely not in today's market, if anything we are under priced with dishes starting... More
