great desserts

Great menu with lots of choices. We mostly opted for burgers which were average tasting. We chose some deserts to take away for later on which were very tasty and good sized pieces.

Food is great value and tasty. The atmosphere can lack a certain something but when you look what you get for price you can't argue too much. Staff are really nice and helpful.

We went to the rufford for a family meal. Upon ordering our food the bar staff were really friendly and helpful. The food arrived within 20 minutes, this was extremely quick seeing as there were eight people eating. The kitchen manager came out to personally check our food was ok because we had ordered blue steaks and he wanted to... More

If you're looking for luxury dining then this isn't your place. But if your looking for somewhere cheap, to take a few friends at the end of the month then this is everything you need. Food is good quality for the price, staff seem friendly enough (sometimes seems a little unhappy) but service is always quick.

We came here for a get together. Our food was lovely and great prices with great choice. Our service was below par. If the service had of been better and we weren't left waiting for things that staff said They would do us and never did *like order our puddings for us* the score would be a lot higher :)

Popped in a few weeks ago hoping to book for a Christmas meal with my family. We left it quite late but couldn't be happier with the service I received, even though a lot of tables had already been booked for the day we wanted, our booking was accommodated immediately. We were given menus to fill in and dealt with... More

What a rude woman Samantha behind the bar is. Told me to get to the back of a queue of 4 women. After asking where the "back of the queue" was she pointed to the four ladies, two of which were holding menus. Another couple came beside me to the open bar and were told exactly the same, but they... More

I ate here whilst visiting family back home. My sister and I had carvery & the kid's (3 of) ordered from the menu. All food was enjoyed. Loved the tv at the table to keep the little ones entertained. Worked a treat! Would go back.
