“Rugby tackle the waiter if you want attention...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

We went here, as we did last year, for a pre-Christmas night out with family who live in the local area. Upon arrival we were seated in the bar area and presented with menus; the staff were great and it is a wonderfully relaxing way to chose dinner options from the extenxive menu. In due course we were shown to our table and service was handed over to the Gloom team. The staff were terrible on this particualr night, I had to act out what goes on in the ground and rugby tackle a waiter to place a drinks order and when they arrived the waitress tried to fob us off with a tale that there is no difference between dry and medium wine - it's all white! We were'nt the only table suffering in this way, it seemed that the whole restaurant staff were having a bad night of it. It was epitomised when 5 of us walked past the duty manager (at least I think he was) on the way out and didn't even get a response to our good night and Merry Christmas courtesies.
The food was great and the portions plentiful in that I have no complaints, just don't waste time pondering over the wine menu or waiting to be acknowledged by the staff, not on this night anyway.

“Wednesday Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

We booked in with clients who we value very much. We all had a great time, in a nice relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

Staff were excellent and the food was excellent. Menus were varied and the Festive menu looks to be great value.

I will definitely be back

“hubbys birthday meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

rigalettos is my favorite restaurant,we went on the 18th dec for my hubbys birthday but have been many times before. The staff are friendly and helpful.We arrived at 6.15 and were shown to a table and given a menu plus we ordered drinks which came promptly,we ordered our food and not long after we were taken to our table. The food was lovely and there was loads of it as usual.I had cheese garlic bread to start with on a pizza base and i ordered spagetti and meat balls for my main which is actually a starter but they made it into a main for me and ice cream for afters. The only gripe i have is that we ordered more drinks whilst we were eating but it took 15 mins for them to come and we had basically finish eating by this time and were nearly ready to go but apart from that it was lovely

“Good food, nice atmosphere,friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

I can't believe this has not had more reviews..... Really good place to eat, decent menu, pasta was not brilliant, over cooked, but all other meals went down really well. Foreign staff have a very welcoming demeanour and are very friendly... Will be back

“Not that good...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

we came here before one of the home games and the food really diddnt overwhelm us at all.

we were hungry and the food served was not that bad. Again wasn't too keen on the garlic bread. Our friends , however, really enjoyed it - it may be that we chose the wrong dishes.
