I've been to The Rookery several times, as it's a convenient place to meet friends. However, I've been disappointed on most occasions. The worst thing is the manager, who is extremely rude, never has a smile on his face and doesn't seem to know anything...More

I was disappointed with this place. It looks cool from the outside and the regularly changing menu was appealing but it was a bit of a miss. Service was not very friendly (even though they weren't busy) and several of the dishes were quite bland...More

We had a very good late Saturday lunch here. It's a nice atmosphere with busy and attentive staff. Between 5 of us we had a range of burgers, vegetarian and puds and they were all really good and beautifully presented. We would go back.
