I brought my wife here for a curry. The food was very disappointing and the service was awful. Our table cloth had stains on it and we were given a feeble excuse about cleaning materials. This did not detract from the fact that the table cloth had stains on it. If you can't get the basics such as a table... More

Occassionally I try other Indian restaurants, but the Red Rose is our default, it is always delicious.

Been coming to Red Rose over 34 year period. Still a good curry. BUT it's decor is STILL the decor of the previous Greek restaurant. The toilets are grim. The waiters are a new lot and are sulky and grim faced. The carpets need replaced. The rear seating area is not adequate as waiters bump past with trolleys and people... More

The Red Rose has been in business on this site for 31 years, the owner 'Rocky' is a hard working family guy, with a friendly persona. His staff are equally as pleasant and accommodating. This place has always had a good reputation for great quality food, and it never disappoints. It's clean, well run, and great value - I would... More

I hope these thumps of Indian restaurants new die out. Well priced, well portioned spicy as hell food- comes quickly and is delicious. You are rammed in and the waiters or very efficient. A great old fashioned restaurant.

We visited The Red Rose on a Saturday night after a few drinks locally. We hadn't booked but were seated promptly, it was pretty busy with a mix of families, couples and larger groups. I was pleased they offered a thali as I haven't found a good thali option in the area. My vegetarian thali was very tasty and they... More

Went here for a birthday meal. Fantastic service and good old school curry. The staff make you feel very welcome. They brought out a cake and got everyone to sing happy birthday. My favourite curry house in the area.

Pre Christmas meal with work colleagues. The Red Rose fitted the bill perfectly. Its not some where I would take the other half for a romantic meal but it was ideal for us. Old school no frills curry house. The restaurant was empty when we arrived and two all male groups (like us) came in whilst we were eating. Friendly... More

I have not been to the Red Rose for a while as my previous experiences had not been inspiring but the organiser of our night out had booked a table in advance. The welcome was pleasant and the round table suited the 6 of us to be able to talk but the food is so bland and tasteless! We were... More
