We went to Rhubarb partly because we couldn't get in anywhere else. Some of the recent reviews concerned us but I have to say our experience was excellent. It was a good honest restaurant with excellent service. Nothing fancy but the food was excellent. Two...More

I have been to Rhubarb a number of times in the past 11 years, the last time was with my best friend in the summer when we ate an early evening meal on the terrace which was lovely and we weren't disappointed on Tuesday night!...More

There was very little atmosphere except for the music coming from the kitchen. Wine was ok. A little over priced. Food was tasty though and good value on the deal. Had to get them to check the bill as it was incorrect. Friendly service. In...More

I went to Rhubarb and I expected so much more. The place lacks atmosphere and needs to be redecorated; it is shabby. I went to the bathroom and was shocked, no toilet paper, the hand dryer was not working and there were no hand towels...More

The staff here were very pleasant and the portion sizes were generous which was nice but the food, wine and atmosphere whilst decent were neither memorable or exciting. Would choose other restaurants on the street before this one.

It's not often you find the perfect neighbourhood restaurant with a stylish dining room, stellar food and friendly service ��� but Rhubarb in West Disbury, Manchester, ticks all of the boxes. With quaint window boxes, mulberry coloured feature walls and walnut chairs, the dining room is light and airy, decorated with graphic floral canvases and filled with fashionable locals and Mancurian regulars who keep coming back for the cosy ambience and convivial atmosphere. The hearty international menu at Rhubarb includes favourites such as the Porcini mushroom risotto dressed with truffle oil and Parmesan cheese; the slow-cooked lamb shank served with pumpkin and cheese mash and root vegetables; and the skate wing cooked with capers, lemon and herbs with fried potatoes.
