My wife and I have eaten at Ritson's many time, and have always experienced the food to be of an high standard.The staff are always friendly and helpful and the menu quite varied. We have tried most of the meat and fish dishes, with no complaints and made to feel relaxed and welcome by the staff. Great experience.

We had starters and mains in the restaurant. We were given a bowl of olives and some delicious homemade bread when we arrived. The starters were lovely. Main course was very good, only fault being undercooked potatoes. The wine was very nice (Italian red) and the waitress was lovely.
