Having been here once before and enjoyed the food and atmosphere, we decided to go there with visiting family the following weekend (Saturday 28th July) We rang booked a table on the night but when we got there it was 'full up' and the waiter just shrugged and said we could maybe sit downstairs on the lounge sofa. There was no apology and no estimated time option to wait. It was a huge disappointment as we were all looking forward to it, and I have to say that this was unacceptable. Despite the food being good and good value with fun and lively atmosphere, after being treated like that we shall not be going again.

Coleford has a music festival each July. It is very good and free. This year we decided to have a meal at the Ritmo, then watch the music and then get a taxi home (last year's big mistake was not to book a meal or a taxi).
This time we went with friends and had a meal at Ritmo. I have always been surprised that Coleford has a tapas bar/restaurant, it is a bigger surprise to find that it is better than most tapas bars we go to in Spain! The beer is good, the wine is good and the food is wonderful. Usually we plan our visit in advance and have a list of tapas that we will have. All are worth trying, some we repeat every time we visit. The creamy garlic mushrooms are to die for.
All the staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. The owner always greets you on arrival.
If you are in Coleford, please try the Ritmo.
