Cafe Rhubarb has replaced Chateaux Rhubarb. It is now just a basic cafe. Went for an evening meal thinking it would be restuarant service in the evenings. It was not. Took one hour to get the food. Beer is only by the botle and wine is only by the glass. Food was OK but just basic but nothing special. Pizza had no tomato base so were all bland and pretty tasteless. Deserts were not very tasty either. They start tidying up whilst you are trying to enjoy your evening which is annoying. Would probably be good for lunch or coffee. Shame but not a success at all. Maybe it will get better as they get established.

Now called Cafe Rhubarbe - stopped in for a quick drink on our way home - just had to stay a bit longer to hear about all the special flavours of teas that are available - some I had never heard of - what an education.

Having Pizza at least every fortnight for take-a-way. Always good and always very delicious. The large one is easy to share for two people. You can put two different toppings on one. For example: 1/2 with Spinach & Salmon and 1/2 with Salami & Mushrooms. Yummy, yummy.....

Stopped off for a quick lunch break with our kids and had some of the freshest, most delicious sandwiches we've had all holiday! Highly recommended.
