I really enjoyed the ribeye steak. It was beautifully cooked, (medium rare) and the chips were very nice too. Priced well.

Very average service (staff barely acknowledged us as we went to pay). Food quality (lots of deep fried stuff) very average to poor. We wouldn't eat here again (we have in the past) and neither would the people who were sitting near us.

We had the day's specials. The pumpkin soup was moderate but the steak was excellent. Big portions, very friendly and attentive waiters. Good value for money

We were recommended this place by where we were staying luckily we got 10% off because the food was awful. We ate it because we were both super hungry after a long day. The ribs were fatty and the pasta was bland. I would give...More

We found Robbies warm and welcoming with a good range of meals and drinks. The moroccan chicken kebabs were outstanding and very delicious. The chicken wrap was very good also. The portions were a good size and left us feeling full without feeling bloated. A...More
