Very few restaurants have been around for 20 years and still manage to deliver consistent food and service standards, at reasonable prices, and yet avoid being dull : Roly's is one of that very select elite !
We had been here before for different reasons - sometimes business, occasionally as a couple. This visit was very different : lunch to celebrate a MAJOR Birthday of a family member, so we wondered would Roly's live up to our (high) expectations - YES it definitely did.
Our group of 11 spanned 3 generations - 8 adults from 40s to 80s + 3 youngsters from 6 to 13, and to our great delight, all seemed to enjoy the experience.
There was a slight delay in taking our orders, but service moved smoothly from then on. The well-priced Lunch Menu offered good choices + the younger people were offered the option of a special Menu. Fish cakes & Chicken / Ham Terrine were popular choices for Starters (from a list of 6), and Mains (10 options) picked by the adults included Roast Loin of Pork, Seatrout Fillet & Chicken Breast with Parma Ham. Chicken & Chips was popular with the younger people.Most of the gathering opted for a Dessert, chosen from a selection of 6 beautifully presented creations. A few of the adults sampled a bottle of Rioja, which proved adequate.
Highlight of the occasion was the "Happy Birthday" performance at Dessert Time - unlike places we've been before, the staff actually sang as if they meant it. Well done !
The Bill (including a standard 10% Service Charge) was very reasonable for the excellent Food & Service, and we left feeling that we had chosen just the right place for this Family Occasion.
