First visit to Broadway, pretty place with many pubs and restaurants to choose from. Having walked up and down looking at all the menus we chose Russell's. I think that it is usually a warning sign when you walk into a virtually empty restaurant (although to be fair it was early) only to be asked if you've booked! Anyway, we had the set £16.50 menu which was very limited in its choices. I had carrot and cumin soup and my wife had cured salmon, mains taken were plaice and shoulder of lamb. It was nice ok, but my lamb was dry which is quite hard for shoulder, and tiny with one small fondant potato. Presentation was good, bread rather twee with a tomato butter and a kind of tapenade which needed anchovy. With two glasses of Merlot and a bottle of mineral water the bill was £55 including an added 10% (my addition, there is no 'optional' service which was nice to see) so not expensive. The staff are young, attractive and pleasant, quite a few for not so many customers. Judging by other reviews which say it's great, we thought it was ok. As we are staying local, and eating out every day we shall see if we were hasty or not.
