We joined some friends in this restaurant the decor of which is inviting. Two of us wanted full meals and two wanted tapas only which wasn't a problem. This was good as not all restaurants are happy to mix and match in this way. The two main courses were very good and our tapas were also tasty. The only thing that was quite irritating was that there were several occasions when we had to remind the staff of things that had been forgotten. A side salad never appeared despite all this but nor was it on the bill. We'll probably go back as overall we had a nice meal but it could be made great with more attention given by the staff.

We popped in for a quick cuppa but liked the atmosphere and the look of the food so much we ended up staying...and staying. Great way to spend an afternoon after a morning shopping. Really quirky with great staff, great food and great 20 yr old Port, thanks Abi. Have read some of the reviews for this restaurant and can only assume the people who complain about waiting are perhaps "fast food" addicts. The food is prepared to order and is beautifully presented and tastes delicious. I find myself repeating again and again in reviews that a meal should surely be a pleasant experience to be enjoyed at leisure. So if like us you like good food in a great atmosphere without the rush of fast food and fantastic staff go to Rhubarb. We will be back soon,
get the Port ready Abi!!!!!

15 minutes after been given a table I had to go to the bar and ask for a menu, I told the bar person at that point I had not seen a server in 15 minutes . 15 minutes later still no service. I then asked the bar person to send the manager. She was claimed I had just been missed by the staff but was not apologetic.
One to avoid if you are hungry.

Excellent food in a wonderful place with a lovely atmosphere with perhaps a little less attention then we required of our waiting staff but the girl was friendly nonetheless and the food and atmosphere more than made up for that anyway. We were also very, very happy with the food and the fact that the bill totaled £40 between four of us was very reasonable. Altogether a very nice morning.

Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and good food with slightly quirky decor. Great for lunch or a coffee and cake. Dinner is supposed to be good too.
