The ‘girls’ and I eat here regularly - every couple of months when we get together. The food never disappoints and the service is excellent. The staff are professional and we never feel rushed. Most of all, it’s exceptionally good value for money.
My sister is coeliac and therefore can't tolerate gluten, Red Onion have a separate gluten free menu so there was no worry about her getting sick. The food was amazing we both enjoyed our meals, the Duck was so tender as was the steak, the staff are friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back and have already recommended the restaurant to people.
As ever, a visit to Red Onion does not disappoint. The pre-theatre menu is excellent value for money and we thoroughly enjoyed the perfectly cooked steak frites.
