We dine twice a mouth at The Rag and it never disappoints us. The food is first class and staff are very helpful. There are special midweek deals which we try on each of our visits.

Visited with family to celebrate my mother in law's birthday, although there was 9 of us the waitresses were able to bring all our food out at the same time and the food was excellent. We had items off the 2 dine for £30 menu and this Mage it excellent value too. I would recommend and will return.

There is pub food and there is The Rag pub food. The menu was not too long but the food was first class, good sized portions but not overloaded. Good draft beers and an excellent wine list. Service first class. A great night out

Oh wow was this restaurant good. You pay a little more but for the quality on offer it was well worth it. One of the tastiest soups I've ever eaten to start off with. Just excellent. And then the t bone steak, just amazing. I want another!

Had a bar meal and there was an enormous hair in the chip bucket. Puts me off for life. I could never go there again.
