I've known this restaurant for about 30 years - has always been one of the best until about 2 years ago. BUT !...with new owner / manager and head chef, it is absolutely brilliant again. Food was perfect, service excellent and the transformation they have made already to the look of the restaurant is a promise of great things ahead.... More

Took a group of visiting colleagues for lunch at The Rose after a very long time. The food was exceptional can not recommend the lamb biryani enough! Staff were friendly and service was sharp. Seems the new management are doing a great deal... definitely on the up! Must try their lamb biryani and dhal.

Love the Red Rose! A great local curry house with great traditional food - but so reliable and dependable - but it's set to get even better. The Greek decor has gone and there'll be a new menu later in the year. And they're going to expand next door. Mizan and Kabir and their team want you to enjoy the... More

What's happened. I've used this Indian for years and others have popped up and opened and still have been my favourite. Recently the food has been so bad. I always take away as I find that in Indian restaurants the walking up and down past your table a many times just gets in my nerves. So following last nights third... More

I brought my wife here for a curry. The food was very disappointing and the service was awful. Our table cloth had stains on it and we were given a feeble excuse about cleaning materials. This did not detract from the fact that the table cloth had stains on it. If you can't get the basics such as a table... More

Been coming to Red Rose over 34 year period. Still a good curry. BUT it's decor is STILL the decor of the previous Greek restaurant. The toilets are grim. The waiters are a new lot and are sulky and grim faced. The carpets need replaced. The rear seating area is not adequate as waiters bump past with trolleys and people... More
