Eat here regularly, and for Christmas parties and the food is always top quality. There's a lovely atmosphere that can accommodate both larger parties and intimate meals.

The Russell is just around the corner from the fair-green on Ludlow street. The seating and layout is great. Really comfortable for all the family. We ate like royalty and the price for Sunday lunch was decent. #ramblingstampcollectors

Food is lovely and they have great menu choices. It is expensive though I went on a Saturday night so I doubt they had an early bird option available. Food is very nice though.

The Russell Restaurant has a charming interior with subtle and stylish decor.The food is very tasty,if a little unadventurous. Portions are a good size and everything is freshly cooked.The menu is moderately priced.The staff are friendly,if a little stretched on a busy night.
