The food was absolutely incredible. Each bite was heaven! We were being served by a new young waitress who was very smiley and friendly and always checked on us. She could only serve drinks but when she saw we were ready to order she reminded the veteran staff to attend to us. The veteran staff weren't bothered to do so... More

Excellent food and service - although a little slow. The major downside was the noise levels. It was quiet when we arrived but by the time we left we couldn't hear each other talk! Shame because otherwise it was a nice evening.

We called into The Red Rose whilst visiting friends in Kettering. On a cold spring evening, the town centre was pretty deserted, and the several restaurants that were open gave plenty of choice. In truth, in an area of the town blessed with several options, many of them looking new and appealing, this small restaurant in one of the town's... More

Was so looking forward to trying this restaurant! Very slow service! Starters took ages to come and the main even longer! Food was very tasty when it came but some starters were a bit cold! Found one member of staff quite rude!! Such a shame!

Lovely food and fantastic value for money if you order from the banquet menu. I opted for chicken tikka to start followed by chicken korma with a plain nann and a side of bombay potatos. Will definitely return.

The food is well cooked and good portion size. The staff are very pleasant so no... More

Oh Red Rose what's happened? I previously wrote a 5 star review but now I can only give you a 1. The last three occasions there have been issues - each time I think I'll give it another go, but not any more. First issue - takeaway ordered and came to about £13. I had a £20 but the driver... More

I stopped going to this restaurant some time ago, due to the rudeness of one of the staff... Not a big deal, but with so many other places to choose from, why spend time and money where the welcome and customer service are below average? Recently friends booked a table and I was happy to join them. Again the food... More
