Met for a family gathering early December. Our party of 5, all had a very good meal. We all selected from the special Christmas lunch menu which had a good selection. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals which were beautifully presented, good quality and very tasty. Haven't taken small children here, but I'm sure they would be welcomed. Friendly... More

Once again The Rose Garden lived up to expectations. My father in law travels from Kent just to eat here! !! The atmosphere is very welcoming. The staff are lovely and the quality of the food warrants the 5 stars awarded. Thoroughly recommend this exceptional restaurant

Last night four of us dined at The Rose Garden. All of us had different starters, main courses and desserts and we were all extremely pleased with our choices. The service was good and we will definitely be returning. All in all very good value.

One might be put off by the dated decor, but despite that there is a very cosy feel. The main meal was very good and the dessert was excellent! The chef is a highly experienced pastry chef, and you can tell. The service was also very good, so I'd visit again. Plus, tuesdays are bring your own wine , so... More

Service great, Sunday roast with a couple of options for entree which should suit most, variety of meats with all the trimmings for main and great selection of chefs desserts. Wonderful selection of wines and... More

Have not been to the Rose Garden for a few years not sure why as it’s very local and I do pop in to the Harry pub occasionally (situated at the front of the restaurant) and only hear great things about the food. So our 13th wedding anniversary we book a table for two. So pleased to see beef wellington... More

Little known gem, it's several years since I'd visited 'The Harry' pub, despite it probably being the closest local worth a visit. The Rose site behind and joined to the pub and our midweek vist left our party of 4 making up exactly half of the total number of diners. As to the food? 4 different starters, 4 different mains...

I can honestly say one of the nicest meals I have had. We went for Saturday lunch. We chose from the set menu and there was a good choice. The food was lovely, well presented and hot. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Definitely go again.
