Popped into racks for a drink with a friend. They were running a pink gin special for £6, and asked that ours were made double. Ended up being charged £24 that is an extra £6 per shot. Absolute rip off. Barman was unsympathetic in his...More

Popped in after work and decided to order some food. Fish pie and cheesecake. I'm noted for cooking fish pie at home but this was gorgeous! Both absolutely perfect. Definitely worth a try

Booked an early Christmas dinner with friends and were given a nice private area. Food was very good, service efficient and friendly, really enjoyed all 3 courses and very reasonably priced!

Xmas parties can be a disaster, but our evening at Racks was great. Delicious food, good service, atmospheric building. It was very busy but all the food was hot and served courteously. Recommended. 10/10, we will be back. Thanks!
