“Perfect lunch experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

I took a friend out for lunch here and was very impressed. The food was freshly prepared and absolutely delicious. The service was excellent and unobtrusive. I really couldn't fault it as a place for lunch and will be happy to return.

“So disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

A Saturday night visit with five friends. Good ambience albeit a little on the dark side, attentive service, tapas starters all good and puddings not bad at all. Rib eye steak at £20 was not good, almost suggesting a job lot had been bought off the back of a lorry. I'm not even sure it was rib eye ! My duck breast was overcooked but just about ok.
The star chef Christof has gone to pastures new, elsewhere in Leamington - find him if you can !

“Too dark in rhubarb”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

It's far too dark and awful for anyone with any form of visual impairment, feels very old fashioned and expensive . I have yet to find a comfortable chair there too

“Unsatisfactory in every way”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Went there for tea with a friend. Just wanted a cup of tea. The teapot was metal and when I tried lifting the lid, the metal knob burnt my fingers. The tea was weak, there was not enough milk and my cup had a chip in the rim. That pot of tea for two cost £5! Service was deplorable and no apologies for burnt fingers or chipped cup! I couldn't believe the price of that sub-standard tea! Shabby chic decor and very shabby service and tea.

“Disgusting visit!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Visited July 2013 with my family and ordered our meals. During this time, a tall brass lamp/object toppled over from the table beside me knocking my back and onto a lady sat beside it injuring her arm!! Apologies were made by the waiting staff, orders taken and eventually food provided!
Mediocre service with food missing and eventually when the bill came, I was surprised at the lack of recognition at what had happened to be adjusted accordingly on the bill!
I asked to speak to the manager and a male came over who said, " Was it knocked off as it has never happened before" which insinuated two people had been injured on purpose! I was disgusted! My baby was in my arms at the time and the object narrowly missed him! He then left and a female came over but nobody actually introduced themselves!
We had one main meal deducted from the bill (wow) and the item that fell was missing three screws that clearly made it unsafe and should not have been on a high table!
All in all, terrible experience with mediocre food and a manager that needs a lesson in manners and customer service!
