Description: We are a modern contempary English restaurant serving quality fresh dishes. We prepare all our products from our kitchen and use locally sourced products from award winning suppliers, including the fantastic Saltaire Blond on tap. Our ethos has always been value for money and we serve a house menu that cannot be matched in our opinion for a wide range of styles and dishes. Our menu contains a very good selection of fish which is delivered on a daily basis.

On my recent visit to La Rue I can only say it gets better and better. You are spoilt for choice with the well thought out menu. I chose the belly pork which was quite honestly the nicest I've had, my guests were also impressed with their choices of meals ranging from fish to steak. With food this good the chef has to be the owner. Keep it up!

You are right, Lee, my partner, is the chef and does work really hard at trying to create good, value for money food that our customers will enjoy.

Once again another fantastic meal at La Rue restaurant. 10 of us went to La Rue for Sunday lunch to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday not only was this the best Sunday lunch we had the staff made the whole experience a wonderful occassion. The value for money and exceptional quality of the food certainly made it a delight. Would certainly recommend.

This is our third visit in as many weeks. A fantastic find! Amazing food, good service and good atmosphere. Only been for Sunday lunch but must try on an evening. Can not understand negative feedback on previous reviews, they must be very blind and stupid! Highly recommend!!

I have been going to la rue for the last 14 years, it has remained a firm favourite throughout the years. The menu always fills us with excitement and we struggle to choose between the extensive choice. I dined last night with my 2 best friends, we had 4 starters between 3 of us (greedy I know but we couldn't resist) duck pancakes, deep fried mozzarella, and spring rolls all starters were delicious. For mains we had lamb Wellington, Brie in filo and Seabass. We had one dessert chocolate torte which was lovely. La rue is modern, well established and moving with the times. Throughout the years it has become a staple meeting place for my friends and family, and countless good times have been had. 3 things can always be relied on at la rue, friendly helpful staff, fantastic food and good value for money. Well done la rue and all the staff, I'm so pleased that after almost 20 years you've stood the test of time, it says a lot.

For my boyfriends birthday his mum paid for me and him a meal here, after looking at the online menu and finding nothing we liked we werent looking forward to it however we were pleasantly surprised. For starters i had a curry spring roll which was beautiful. However for main i ordered the lamb and it was very fatty and the veg was cold! But pudding was deligtful! The staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs although it was quite pricey i enjoyed it

Dear Smile2929, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Whilst I am pleased that you enjoyed your evening with us I am really sorry that your main course wasn't quite right, it is always disappointing to read when we get things wrong. I can only apologise and hope that you will base your experience, at least this time, on the fact that the rest of the meal and service was enjoyable. I know that you weren't looking forward to coming to the restaurant but I am hopeful that you will try us again and give us the opportunity of redeeming ourselves on the main course. With kind regards, Kathy
