Staff were extremely pleasant and attentive. Atmosphere in the pub was charming and the food was delicious. So impressed I have booked again for next week.

Unfortunately I am unable to comment on the food itself. I booked a table last Saturday for my birthday on the Thursday. We turned up at 7pm on the Thursday to be greeted by a rude member of staff behind the bar who simply said “I did try to ring you. The kitchen is closed tonight” with no apology at all. I reserved a table using my email address and phone number. Neither of these were used to contact me to tell me my reservation was cancelled.

We brought 2 South African friends who are surrounded by high quality locations in Cape Town. They thought the food was top class - and were surprised by the cost, compared to London. Don’t eat out very often, but would choose the Ruppera when we do.

Food was amazing. Our waitress made some recommendations whilst we were ordering and the food was amazing. Even if it was not a time when 40% was deducted from main courses, the prices would have been good value and worth it. Definitely recommend and definitely be back

I think you're living off the good feedback built up by the previous owner. I don't think you could care less about my feedback but I've cut and pasted it from Google and Facebook. There are so many issues with this place. I relied on the website and booked a table. Upon arrival I was told that "there were no bookings shown and it didn't matter". What a great start. I've seen better furnishings in a factory staff canteen. It resembled the 60's and I'm not sure if that was intended. I would describe it as a "spit and sawdust look". I'm sure my table was sticky. The menu was different to that on the website because "we changed it". Why didn't you change your website then? "We are working on it" LESSON ONE - DONT RELY ON THE WEBSITE. I was interested in battered cod. I asked if it had skin. "What do you mean" "No, it is battered" was the first reply. Once I had explained, I was assured "No, it doesn't" Well it did. When I questioned it, the chef told the server to tell me that "keeping the skin on keeps the fish whole"! The chef wouldnt speak with me. LESSON TWO - BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT YOUR ARE TOLD. I didn't realise that they served "lazy chips" ... chips with the skin on which I hate. They resembled "scraps" that you get from the chippy. Salt and pepper was it ... no vinegar, no sauces, no coasters for your drinks. I won't be going back to be magged off for a second time even with 40% off. It was exceptionally basic cooking and not good cooking. I think they pureed 6 peas and added something to it to get the spoonful of mushy pea accompaniment. . Tiny and very pretentious. Maybe this place attracts food snobs. Not for me. I'd have trouble giving it one star. There has been no response from the owner since posting this honest review which says a lot about their customer focus

The serving staff were excellent and I really like the pub interior and beer selection. However, to take our order, then tell us that there weren't going to be doing any kids' food (there were two kids with us) is not on. The beef option was two thin slices of beef, which is a bit stingy if you ask me, and while I thought the carrots were nice, boiled cabbage is a destitute man's idea of vegetable trimmings. The food here is usually really good, but I won't be bothering with sunday lunch again, as costs have fairly obviously been cut right back...
