About Rub Nottingham
An #EpicFood Barbecue Experience, serving traditional low n slow meats, smoked over hickory. With an amazing range of #EpicCocktails based on #GulityPleasures. Rub is a great environment for large groups in its fabulous part atmosphere.
Portion sizes were ridiculously enormous and expensive. I would have liked options to have smaller sized meals rather that being forced to have Epic sized main courses. An obscene waste of food. The tables were sticky and the toilets were filthy.
Good food, good place!
Certainly wasn't epic..Took a long while together our food, when it came it was luke warm,chicken was dry and the onion rings looked amazing but uncooked inside.We were a table of 8 crammed on to a 6 seater, until the last part of the meal when another table was stuck on the end. Great social media spin which promises alot but basically it was obvious the restaurant was under staffed in the service and kitchen departments, and can't back up the promise of a great environment for large groups! Disappointing.
Great, attentive service and really tasty food.
Was extremely busy and understaffed. We’ve eaten here several times and it’s always been great but last night let it down. We ordered drinks we never got, food was undercooked, my friend slipped on a wet floor and hurt herself and not a single member of staff came over to help or asked if she was ok. We asked for an accident book that took over an hour to come, but they did give her meal for free. Overall really disappointing service, the atmosphere was terrible we could barely speak because the other tables were too rowdy, one table had a megaphone and the staff didn’t do anything about it.
All of our meals were JUST warm enough ( not hot). Service was ok. Toilets were disgusting. We ate the main course and left without bothering with desert. We’re unlikely to return.
Amazing food. Great service!
If only I could finish a meal
Waited 1 hour 50 minutes for the food to come to the table. Another larger table who came in after us were served and left before our food had been brought out. When we finally get our food there were bits missing from the order the chips were barely cooked, also had to wait 45 minutes for a beer to be brought over. Once we had told the wait staff about our wait they were a bit more attentive to us, felt a bit sorry for them as it was beyond their control. Brisket was very slimy and the ribs were burnt. Chicken and corn on the cob were really good though.
We were kept waiting an hour and 15 minutes for our food to be cooked. The waitress kept chasing it up but I think the kitchen staff were fobbing her off, the first manager then came over and said it was because we had ordered the sharing platter but that was a lie as people came in half hour after us and ordered the platter and there's came out within 20 minutes. The fries were undercooked. My wife had chilli which looked miserable on the plate compared to the theatre of all the other dishes. The tables are fairly tightly packed in and is was red hot in there but the staff couldn't change the temperature as the owner had gone away for a week taking the keys to the cupboard with the controls inside!! The second manager we complained to was more understanding of our complaint though and sorted us out
Amazing — thanks for looking after us!
Amazing food and brilliant staff, fabulous place.
Worth warning other patrons that there was a bit of an incident with a gift card we had been given for £50. Apparently you have to spend the whole value at once. We only spent £33 and therefore we were told would have to spend the rest or lose the balance. Quite frankly I am appalled at this policy and I am sure that it wouldn't have been bought for us had the buyer known. The manager resolved the issue by giving us the balance on a Rubs Beer mat which he signed & dates with the value. I am unsure at this point whether we will actually be able to redeem it. Not impressed really. And Nottingham could do to address the problem with wobbly tables, we moved 3 times to find a table that wouldn't spill our drinks everywhere. And food under the tables when you're going to sit down isn't a nice sight. Waiting staff were lovely though and the food was acceptable (onion rings very greasy though).
Shocking service. Bottomless.nuggets were nothing like on the website. They were flat and had more cornflakes type.topping than anything. Otherhalf ordered a chin dropper burger that was cold and diet coke refill.must have been mixed up with normal coke or just very very sweet
I used to come here a lot but it’s massively gone downhill over the last year. We came on Tuesday, for a meal. You had no chicken and no dough which wasn’t a great start. We had to wait 40 minutes for our food, bearing in mind it wasn’t busy. Then when paying for the bill, the 30% wasn’t added to the epic meals, so I had to query this. This restaurant used to be busy, big portions, high quality food. It’s a shell of its former self.
Not as good as normal. Over an hours wait for food Cola from self service machine was awful tasting.
Amazing food, really was so nice and great value for money. Service was great, advised when we arrived that food would be a 45 min wait as they were so busy but once ordered it took about 35 mins. Was defo worth the wait and our waitress was lovely! Will defo go again and also recommend it!! 5***
Excellent food, epic puddings perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth!
Lovely food, great service will definitely be returning
Great food, great service. Loved it
Some of the meat was 'cool', had to ask for sauces and dips, our cider came in a can. Food was ok, but not for the price.
Service so slow. Lots of disappointed customers around.
1 hour 15 mins no food or feedback. Left restaurant, will never return awful
Great service. Great food. We had a lovely celebration for my husbands birthday. An improvement on out last visit about 18 months or so!
