We were accommodated outside which was opened at our request even though we were a walk in with no booking. We had three courses and we felt spoiled by the staff especially with the happy birthday message piped onto the dessert plate. May seem corny but it was a nice touch.

Great service, great wine, great food, and a very convival atmosphere. From starters straight through to dessert, there was nothing we could fault. It is definitely one of those places we would visist again.

Eventually after many years, we ended up at Reubens (not really knowing why we'd never got here before!). The food was simply delicious from beginning to end, and deserves the rewards and accolades it has received. What we did not like was the positioning of the restaurant and being stuck round the corner inside an alcove. The food deserves a... More

Choices of wine, beer and interesting meals. Don't let the names of the dishes on the menu put you off, as everything is made very tasty. Portions are of good sizes.

We were of a group of about 60 who were invited to the restaurant on a Saturday evening. The service for such a big group was outstanding. To take orders, serve water and wine at the same time for such a big group it was not easy but it went very well. Waitrons very friendly and well trained. Our hosts... More

If it wasn't for our B & B proprietors' recommendation, we wouldn't have gone to Reubens (too many so-so Trip Advisor reviews). Our experience was worth documenting. We arrived at about 6:15 without reservations, and were told to wait in the bar until 6:45 (when they opened apparently). There were 3 dinner menus to choose from: one on the wall,... More

Lovely warm and cosy setting with a huge fireplace and some fine wine , but that's it. The food unfortunately was at best, average. The steak enjoyed by one at the table was flawed by sinew. We did complain and to their credit, they gave us credit upon closer inspection. I hope that this is not indicative of their quality... More
