We've been a number of times now and have always enjoyed the food and the friendly staff. The wine list also usually has some nice surprises but it would be good to see more frequent variation in the tapas menu. We'll be back.

Firstly we ordered Egg Royal that said it came with smoked salmon, was expecting nice fresh orange cold smoked salmon, it came out with warm cooked salmon. The bread was extremely hard and needed a better knife other than a butter knife to cut through it. Food tasted okay.
The worst thing was the lady brought us our bill and said the next people are here waiting on your table. Very rude practice as we were not told we were on a time limit on our arrival!
Then we went to pay the bill. Two of us put in cash and the other wanted to pay on card, she was told we have a fifty dollar limit for cards. The total bill only came to $36!
Will not be returning. Extremely disappointing!

I really enjoy coming to Raincheck and I go back again and again! The food is delicious and the staff are friendly. However, don't go here if you want a quick meal or coffee. The wait times can be ridiculous but it's hard to be grumpy when the staff are so friendly.

Wow that salmon omelette was like a souffle!! It was fluffy, golden and was served with the perfect accompaniment- a wedge of lemon. It was fantastic but quite rich so i was very happy that i went halves in it and also had some of the fresh and tangy freekeh salad with preserved lemon and currants. Service was friendly, efficient and fast. Waitresses couldn't do enough to help us get a table outside, as we wanted to be close to our dog. Highly recommend this place. An added bonus was that we had an entertainment book voucher and got 25% off and they didn't even grudge at it.

I came here for a drink with my sister. Great service and great atmosphere. I did think the wine was little pricey.
