Standard cafe. Excellent choice if you want to impress someone as you will pay more than at a standard cafe for the same drinks... And you will be offered Stella Artois, the beer of the pretentious.

Regular visitor to CR and found everything up to its usual high standard. Food was really good, and staff helpful and funny. Our Waiter (who I suspect was the manager) was excellent at recommending suitable wine, as well as talking us through his favourite desserts. A really nice meal which was paced to perfection. We didn't feel hurried in any... More

Revisited with friends recently. The food was of a very good standard. I have to however highlight the parfait which was recommended by the waiter and did not disappoint. Worth a visit just for that.

This was our first experience of a meal at a Cafe Rouge, and we were not disappointed. We had booked ahead since we were intending on lunch a week before Christmas on a Friday lunchtime.. What a lovely experience! The staff were absolutely brilliant. Perfectly paced, attentive and polite - just how it should be. The food was simply glorious;... More

We came with a family party and had a good night. The service is spot on, really good and the food was nice. The main problem was the drinks. They take as long to turn up as the food, and by the time it arrived you had forgotten you had ordered it!

A group of us went there for coffee and some small snacks before an event. Staff is extremely friendly. Food was good (Croque Monsieur and Croque Madame, about 9 and 10 quid) but maybe a bit on the small side. Be aware service can be quite slow when busy so let staff know in advance that you need to leave... More

CR do a 2 or 3 course menu at lunchtime which is a good deal. We usually have the half a chicken which comes with either salad or fries and a little pot of lovely gravy. It is absolutely delicious. The staff are lovely and the service is excellent too. Sometimes the billing itself is a little strange, but it... More

Occupying a prime location in the pedestrianised square, Café Rouge looks directly across to the cenotaph and is the ideal place to sit down, relax with a meal and a glass of wine and watch the world go by. A petit bit of trivia: during an outbreak of plague in 1563, the Parliament of England temporarily relocated from London to Hertford. To commemorate this, the square was re-named Parliament Square in the 20th century.
