Four of us ate here over the Easter weekend. The dinner we had was fantastic value - £15.95 each for three courses including a steak upgrade. The menu was standard Cafe Rouge stuff and the food was good quality and served in reasonable portions, Mackerel and terrine starters, steak and garlic butter with fries and ice cream were all good....

You know what you are getting with a chain restaurant and this is a fine example of Cafe Rouge. I was staying the the area for work so went here for somewhere different other than the hotel, all really nice. Staff very helpful/friendly but generally quite an expensive chain. £60 for 2 starters, 2 mains and a bottle of wine... More

Popped in for a couple of 3 course steaks, absolutely delicious!) The service, as always, was friendly and efficient. We always find ourselves coming back for more!

Two of us had their daily menu specials of pates followed by moules, in my case, and minute steak for the wife. My mussels were delicious and with a lovely cream sauce. The steak was a little tough, but tasty nevertheless. Our daughter had a Croque Monsieur which was especially notable as it was not greasy as we have found... More

Nothing really wrong with our evening meal .. service was efficient and friendly... food arrived in good time and was excellent... I'm a massive fan of cafe rouge and always have been but this is the first mediocre review I've done... it just felt dated... left behind... old... the clientele were also dated! A Cote has recently opened nearby and... More

We always great service and there is a good choice of food. The new menu is out soon so we'll have to go again and again !! The only reason I've given 4 stars is because the chairs are not comfortable enough for us, I assume that because it is a cafe style restaurant and looks the part.

The staff were great and the menu seemed to cater to everyone, but my nephews didn't like it at all when it came, which was disappointing. We all had burgers of some sort, and I thought they were fine but the rest of the table disagreed, sadly.

Dropped in for hot drinks, coffee for my friend and delicious hot chocolate for me. Friendly staff but the restaurant could have been a bit warmer as it was very cold outside.

I have always enjoyed my visits to Cafe Rouge and our last was no exception. However I must point out the really unfortunate flaw we experienced last weekend. My husband, 9 month old son and In-laws were seated at 10am on a Sunday. Our drinks order was taken within 5 minutes, and our food order within 20 minutes. It was... More
