Fantastic meal on New Years Eve. Fabulous three courses. The star of the night was the Beef Wellington. Absolutely delicious. Great atmosphere and friendly service. We would thoroughly recommend eating at Roovrays.

Excellent meal, friendly relaxed ambience. The starters in particular - smoked salmon poached egg asparagus, and goats cheese filo pastry - were exceptionally tasty. Portions are enormous!

Small cosy restaurant with modern decor. Choice of two or three course dinner menu at a fixed price. Thought the £12 surcharge for fillet steak was a little excessive and would have been easier if the whole menu was a la carte as so many...More

There weren’t any when we visited and if there had been, I wouldn’t have gone as I don’t like dogs in restaurants.

Roovrays comes highly recommended...And a Charming and ambient evening awaits you...Tastefully decorated with a French influence due to the French Chef and owner. Great value is offered with the Early Bird menu from 6pm till 6.45pm with 2 courses being £15 and 3 courses only £18. The a la Carte menu starts from 7pm and offers many delights from the freshest of ingredients and local produce. The art of having a relaxed and unhurried evening meal is still very much the main focus here at Roovrays and is done very intentionally by the owners who wish for their guests to have an evening experience enjoying conversation,the live pianist (check on booking when playing),fine wines while your food is unhurriedly cooked to perfection by the owner himself; it won't be a quick affair, just as it should be. Booking is very advisable to save disappointment especially pianist nights as tables go fast.
