“Great food, nice pub!”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

We had a great (not so big but extremely tasty) burger there, enjoyed the nice atmosphere and kind stuff. Typical pub, friendly to big companies of friends since there are some really big tables! There is also outside area, where you can smoke, enjoy the sun, and eat in open air.

“Great food (for a pub) but demand regularly seems to outstrip supply”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

The food served by this hideaway pub is certainly very good (for pub food). They also have an extensive vegetarian menu. However, the chefs never seem to have prepared enough of the vegetarian dishes, so these sell out very quickly (approx. 7pm). If you are vegetarian, or plan on eating vegetarian at this pub, make sure you order early in the night. Staff can also become a bit forgetful when the pub becomes busier, so don't be surprised if you have to chase your food up, or recieve a dish other than the one you actually ordered.

“great food, great place”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

I started coming to the Rusty Bicycle coincidentally because some of my friends moved to a house right next to it - and frankly this turned out to be a great coincidence! The staff is friendly, the food is tasty, the portions are generous and the drinks are reasonably priced. Great for a chilled out afternoon or drinks with friends. Also great quizz night. I would whole-heartedly recommend this!
