We came here for my friends 21st birthday. I asked if we could have the chicken nugget cake as a starter which came out within 5/10 minutes of ordering that was great!! After that, we didn’t get asked to order food for 30/40 minutes. We had to ask someone to get the server over again. When the food eventually came, they got 3 orders wrong. We couldn’t be bothered to change it as everything was just so slow. One of the girls ordered a cocktail before the chicken nugget cake came at the start of the meal, she didn’t get this until the mains had been finished. At this time she had to finish it quickly as we had been there for nearly 2 hours and had to go due to other plans after the meal.

I was not impressed with the food. Ordered half rack of ribs and the meat was dry, possible been cooked for a long time and was not what I expected. Seems like the ribs were cooked and left in the heat which normally turns the meat to be hard rather than soft and juicy. Restaurant has changed a lot since I last visited and not really looking forward to return.

The place is great if you are a couple but for large groups the service is slow to take orders or bring your orders and drinks we were waiting for quite a Bit so on that part the service wasn't great but food and atmosphere was good

Ordered a Coke and was offered Rub Cola which I was told was the same. It was definitely not the same and had a horrible vanilla flavour. A beer was £5.50! Ribs and chicken were bland and not much flavour. Chips were not seasoned and all soggy and cold. Seating is on childrens school chairs. Overall not good value for money. £35 for two of the cheapest mains and drinks. No extras.

We were a little worried as we'd heard some bad reviews recently, but the sevice was absolutely excellent, the girl serving us was so attentive and caring and really went that extra mile. It was Owen's 13th & Olivia's 16th Birthday, we couldn't fault the service and the food and drinks was equally good, delicious. A really great late lunch! Thank you

Over £25 worth of drinks that we didn’t have had been added to our bill, they were removed but it makes me lose trust.

Hi Sharon, Thank you for your feedback. We're extremely sorry to hear there was some confusion with your bill, however we can assure you that if drinks were added to your bill it will have been by complete accident, we would never charge any of our customers for items they did not consume, this is both illegal and just outright immoral. We hope this does not deter you from returning. Kind regards, Rub.

Great food, well cooked and well presented Portions were huge. Although it was quite empty it was still a great exsperience. Staff could do with being informed of promotions displayed on social media, as i was told at first no tuesday discounts were available; baring in mind id seen it online.
