Have not been to RR for a while and it was so good to receive such a warm welcome. Nice and relaxed. Coffee to die for and my favourite omelet and fresh baked toast just seems to get better. Many thanx for being so consistent with service excellence and really good heartwarming food.

What a pleasant surprise we got when arriving for a latish lunch. The friendly staff welcomed us and provided a garden table as requested. What we liked best was the menu that catered for our tastes and the meals served promptly were tasty. We suspect that it is hands-on management by the owners that makes the big difference here.

Sword fish unbelievable taste just too good to be true .We would recommend this dish. Staff very friendly and attentive. However being on one of the best wine routes I do not understand the extortionate prices being charged for wine! Yes make a profit but for goodness sake be reasonable with your wine prices or start stocking some affordable wines.... More

We stopped here for lunch and loved it...the restaurant is behind the deli which sells lots of home made jams and chutneys as well as fresh bread.(not much in the way of chess or sliced meats!)...the food available was well thought through and included a hot?cold salad option that you could help yourself to and pay according to the weight...

Decided to try Rambling Rose for a Sunday morning breakfast. The place was abuzz with customers but the staff managed to handle the workload well. We had a family adjacent to us that felt the need to noisily readjust the furniture in various configurations again and again. No fault of the restaurant though, just customers with ants in their pants... More

Dear Vinnie Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you were disturbed by fellow guests. You are now the second person to complain about the smoked salmon, so I have already found a new supplier and hopefully the new product will be of better quality. I am glad to hear that our team was on top... More

The road construction has placed an unholy hardship on all the vendors on Long Street. A miracle they have survived. Rambling Rose looked at a way to become inviting in these trying times and has created a week-end buffet.... build your plate as high as you can for as many visits as you want and PAY by WEIGHT! Very fair!... More
