We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the RSA. Just so much like a home cooked meal and friendly staff that make you feel welcome. Totally recommend this as a must when in Russell. Enjoy!

This spot was recommended by a local -- the lovely lady at the Russell Smoke House. On the basis of her fabulous smoked fish, we decided to follow her recommendation, and it worked out splendidly. The new chef has designed a very appealing menu. We shared the local mussel fritters to start, and knew we were onto a good thing... More

Hubby had the Pork and he thoroughly enjoyed it, so tender and tasty. I had the only vegetarian meal on the menu which was Spring roll and it was very good. Will definitely go back.
