Excellent lunch

After completing the 10k GEAR race, we had a super lunch here. All staff were very attentive (and congratulatory) and the food was excellent - a nice surprise as we had not been before. Good value three course deal, would definitely return and recommend.

We went for the open mic night was excellent enjoyed myself. Would recommend. The bar staff were really friendly and got served nice drinks quickly. Would only reccomend getting draft coke/lemo seems crazy they use bottles it goes so flat! Some drinks had a fresh bottle so we're still fizzy. Others flat as a pancake.

This is the second time we have been here in the last 2 months. Menus is good and the food is excellent although the change of menu is not great over a two month period.

Well, what can I say? My fiancé and I have become somewhat regular to this place as I'm a musician and frequent the open mic nights when ever we can make it. I've played here myself too. In this instance we decided that we would give the food a go and we were not disappointed. I had the Pork belly... More

Visited the Rathskeller last night after buying my husband vouchers for his birthday. Excellent food and for the price - £16.95 for the 3 course set menu - it was outstanding. Not only the presentation of the food but the taste and quality was brilliant. Much of the food is sourced locally which adds to the quality.The service was brilliant,... More

It was a quiet February evening and we were the only people (group of four) in the place, as a result the service was excellent and very attentive, as for the food, excellent describes it very well, especially for the price.

On arrival we were welcomed into a reception area which although pleasant enough, was very small and we moved on to our table to avoid our tiny surroundings. The staff were attentive and friendly and the menu offered a reasonable choice. The food was well prepared and of good quality although some of the main courses were rather small and... More

Excellent food, polite service, expensive though;i'm torn deciding if it was worth it. We found originality in the dishes and nice variety in the menu. This is one of those strange cases where had there been a little less on the plate with better presentation it could have merited the extra few pounds on the price tag. With a touch... More
