“dreadful service, great food......”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Rhubarb is a vibrant, attractive & quirky restaurant in the centre of Leamington Spa. We went for supper there earlier this week. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived and we were seated quickly. We were then ignored while staff talked. After 20 minutes our drinks order was taken. When the drinks arrived some time later we ordered our food. I am not sure if our waitress was new and had not been trained, or just didn't get exactly what her role was in ensuring we had a pleasant dining experience. Our starters were delivered to the wrong table. When the mistake was noted they were brought to us with no apology. The main courses arrived while our finished starter plates were still in front of us. At no time were we offered any further drinks. It was very scrappy and unprofessional. The food was excellent and without fault and I feel very sorry that the kitchen is being so badly let down by the front of house team. Even if this waitress was new she should have been guided by one of the other members of staff on duty, or at least had her tables watched to make sure all was well for the diners. The restaurant is too expensive to get away with such poor table service.

“Lovely lunch!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We called in here for lunch and received a friendly service and delicious lunch. We only had a light lunch as we were going out in the evening for a large meal, but will be going back at a later date to try the full menu.

“Mums birthday at Rhubarb”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Decided to take mum & dad for a meal at Rhubarb on a recommendation, what a disappointment, ordered drinks, waited 25mins and had to ask again, then received the wrong white wine and the red was straight from the fridge! To be fair we we're given a free bottle to replace the red. The starters came staggered, and my dads was wrong, which took 10 mins to cook, so he ate his on his own!! The mains were ok, however the were served staggered again, so not ideal, oh whilst all this was happening several customers started putting their coats on due to the temperature of the room. To top the night I went to pay only to be told the cash machine wasn't working so I had to go across the road to get out cash! Not the best night, and definitely won't be returning !!
