Always great

Food is always well cooked and delicious. Atmosphere is superb. Plenty of space between tables so you don't have to listen in to other conversations! Friendly and efficient waiting staff. Great value for money.

Wonderful traditional cinema which is run by passionate Nick. I couldn't recommend a table at the front with a bottle of wine whilst watching a movie more than at The Rex. People say getting tickets is a hassle but we had no problem getting last minute tickets. Must be experienced to believed.

Love this place! I've go to this bar most weekends and never bored of the place. I've eaten a few times and the food is always top quality. The service is always good with friendly staff. The one and only fault I have of this place is their Long Island Ice Tea tastes mainly of coke than alcohol. Would highly... More

Went with a party of 10 to celebrate a special birthday. Everything was amazing but not cheap!! Not huge portions but sensible when you are having 3 courses!

we found the menu very limited and the service very amateurish. The evening was very expensive and not a satisfying experience. We will not be making a return visit.

Great independent bar and restaurant that caters for larger parties with ease. We enjoyed pre dinner drinks in the foyer and then an excellent 3 course meal served by experienced friendly staff. Everyone commented on what a superb venue, it ticked all the boxes for us. I would recommend.
