Even at 7pm, the restaurant was busy - we only got in because there had been a cancellation. The staff were professional and friendly and our order was taken promptly. We chose dishes from the vegetarian sides list and all were extremely good. If we lived in this area, we'd be regular customers.

We visit the rose monthly as a treat, always receive a welcoming smile and the food is always lovely, can get busy so sometimes a bit of a wait but it's well worth it. The bar has a good atmosphere and the beer well kept.
