Friendly, homey, great food, chilled setting. Worth the travel! Bread is a winner! Wine prices are incredibly reasonable. Secateur Chenin Blanc was superb.

We arrived mid-afternoon but had no problem with service. The burgers were immense and delicious. Clearly home made. Lovely ecclectic setting with souveniers of the owners' travels around the world. Big dogs who didn't mind us but don't like other pets. Quiet and entertaining.

Hi Celia, Thanks for taking the time to review Red Tin Roof. Apologies for the wait you experienced. Its obvious we were pretty packed so perhaps, in order for you to receive priority treatment, you would need to please book a table in the future...More
