I went to 'the rake' last week as I love tapas food. As we arrived we were shown to our table right away and offered drinks. Excellent!! As we looked through the menu we found for a tapas it was quite expensive and on the specials menu I dont think there was a dish on there below £10 each? We... More

We used to come here many years ago when it was one of the best pubs in the area. It is now one of the best places to eat i9n the area. Great food, great portions and great prices. Needing to book well in advance if you're looking for a table from Friday through to Sunday - but that also... More

This place is a little slice of heaven, the food is to die for, the surroundings are very pleasant and the staff and service they give only adds to the experience. The dish sizes are larger than normal tapas so beware ordering too many as it's a shame to leave such fantastic food. Very reasonably priced. My only complaint, they... More

I have eaten here once before and I loved it so much I knew that this was the place that I wanted to share with my family for my 30th birthday. When we arrived it was lovely and sunny and were able to sit out on the terrace and have a drink. The staff were very accommodating and we booked... More

We were craving a pub snack and The Rake was perfect. We sat at the bar (I don't think this is the normal way to do things) and enjoyed meatballs and patatas bravas with a side of roast corn. The food tasted great and was just what the doctor ordered. Prices are a little steeper than La Mancha in Rochdale... More

I enjoyed the food very much and the portions were very generous, we had a lot to take home as we ordered greedily. I can only make a suggestion though, I would have been even more pleased if they had more options food wise, like the lamb and red wine tapas, dips etc. But I will definitely go again. They... More

My wife and I visited over the Easter period and its not the first time we have eaten at this restaurant. As other have said the dishes are big for tapas and we plumped for fish dishes in the main. We ordered sea bass and tiger prawns with home cooked chips, cod goujans , anchovies, greek salad and bread all... More
