An established restaurant of many years and whilst it has been some time since I last visited, it has not changed in it's friendliness, good service and great food !

We have been going to RB&G for a number of years now and always found the food and in particular the service consistently excellent. Whether a Saturday or Sunday lunch or an evening meal we have never had an issue and will continue to frequent.

Went in as always wanted to visit - nice to sit on the upstairs terrace - heaters and retractable covers in case of bad weather - would go again

The day after visiting the restaurant, I contacted the manager via Facebook and was reassured that I would be contacted about my gripes and the restaurant were initially very apologetic. Since then, despite a few nudges, they have remained unresponsive. Here is our experience of RBG: My husband and I, along with my brother and his girlfriend were greeted warmly... More

Me and my boyfriend love the restaurant bar and grill and frequently attend. Thanks to the staff for a lovely Saturday afternoon/evening. Stuart, our waiter, was great and made sure we had everything we needed. The chateaubriand was so delicious too!

First time eating here as recommended by a friend. Very friendly, good location and nice setting. Food was very average to poor. My chips were cold and my husbands steak wasn't very good we both left feeling disappointed with our meal

We arrived for dinner at 7.30 on a Saturday evening, we were greeted at reception our arrival was announced and we were escorted to our table. Made to feel special right from the start, well done. We had an issue with the setting sun right into my eyes, they noticed this and moved us to another table immediately. The drinks... More
