The food was delicious and piping hot, the jug of water stayed perfectly cold and the service absolutely first class. Even the music was brilliant, for me the perfect choice... More

I came here for 3 course with 2 others on a Friday night. Beef Wellington was very good and a slightly different take on the traditional (would perhaps make ask it to be a touch more pink) and the chicken salad to start was much more than you standard salad.

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.
