We had an early bird last week and had an excellent night out.The early bird options are great value . The relaxed ambience of the restaurant is very noticeable. The staff are always very friendly and professional.

Visited the Russell Restaurant recently with family as we had been given a voucher for a special occasion. We were really looking forward to a rare night out together. The restaurant itself has lovely decor and there were a small number of tables occupied when we dined on a Thursday evening. The waiter who seated us was really friendly. They... More

Hadn't been here for a while was really impressed by the food. Great choice available and all was just perfect. Often find that dessert menus can be disappointing but definitely not here. I would highly recommend it for lovely meal out

I booked for 20 people to celebrate my sisters 40th birthday. From the time I booked to the actual meal the contact I had was faultless. Then on the night the staff were wonderful and attentive. The service was quick and the staff were very professional. The food is to die for. We had the early bird menu so it... More

A friend of mine is ceolic and ordered... More
