We were at the Blue Rare on Saturday night for my son's 40th birthday. Lovely atmosphere, very helpful staff, nothing seemed to be a problem to them. Delicious food, and good value for money.

This place used to be one of my favourites for a sit down meal and takeaway but it's recently gone downhill in regards to ordering a takeaway. 99% of the time food is never ready when I arrive at the collection time. I understand weekends can be busy but if you're too busy you should give a more realistic collection... More

Best Sunday lunch delivered to your door. We ordered 4 meals with puddings and even though there was a mix up as it wasn't actually open and just eat had said it was they honoured my order when they could have just refused. Well done for customer care. Wouldn't order else where on a Sunday especially

After eating here in the past decided would be worth a revisit with family who had came to the city. On arrival the car park looked like it needed some attention with the block paving being very uneven and a bit of a trip hazard. Once seated the waiter approached the table with 2 menus between 4 of us as... More

Nice meals, well presented, hot, and cooked perfectly. Good service provided by efficient waiter and waitresses, but the positive impression given by the smart appearance of the waiter and one of the waitresses was somewhat spoiled by the untidy and scruffy appearance of the second waitress The only negative aspect of our visit was the noise made by some of...

Having been a customer on many occasions and knowing the faults, awful customer service and extremely hit and miss delivery times. I have always stuck with the place as the food is normally fab, the last time I ordered for delivery they rang and said they'd stopped doing fillet steak, fair enough I though I still got a sirloin, but...

After a nice family wedding we decided to have a meal to finish off the weekend with family up for Liverpool, we did ring up and ask if they were able to take a party or 26 on and they said that would be fine. We were a big family which included 6children, however we did expect to wait a... More
