Great pub with nice food (vegetarian options available), nice beer and fantastic atmosphere - I will be back for sure. If you are not into spicy food, ask the staff before ordering - some starters are super spicy!

Thank you Leuveen, make sure you visit again soon! We currently have 'Mr Fish' as our burger of the month, a delicious veggie burger. Take care

I've visited Rusty countless times, and I think yesterday's visit was number 1! My burger (the Dodo) was flavoursome and juicy and the sweet potato fries fresh, crispy and amazing- as always! Just what I needed after a stressful week!

I've visited a few times now and it has a great friendly atmosphere. The food is lovely and they seem to try really hard to get a high quality menu together. Well recommended.
