“Long Lunch”
Reviewed 29 September 2012

If you order the chilli, you're going to need a very long lunch! The portion is huge, even without the mustard vinigrette salad, nachos and accompanying dips. My wife and our friend had wisely chosen lighter options, but luckily I was the only one not going back to work. Service is friendly and unhurried, and despite the rather austere town centre location, the atmosphere is welcoming and maybe a little too relaxing for a quick lunch. A shame it wasn't warm enough to dine alfresco- we'd have been there even longer.

“expensive beer”
Reviewed 15 September 2012 via mobile

remember when this opened many years ago, was one of the 1st trendy, wine bars, been away awhile so revisisted it , not changed much, and there is no way they can justify £3.70 for a pint of carling, location is poor, i hardly ever pay that in a posh wine bar in a city,with stunning views.

“Great Venue”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

In the times that I have been to Rudi’s I have always felt that the level of services has always been a good one, it is quite a modern place with a decent menu and a good selections of wines, service is prompt and portions good. I would recommend Rudi’s for business lunches or a nice evening venue with a lively atmosphere.

“Great place, great staff, great food!”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

The staff are always friendly, and the food is always good. Prices are slightly higher but it's well worth it, keeps out the riff raff!!

“A nice modern bar”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

This bar has a clean, modern decor, lively most weekends and has an area outside to sit if the weather is good. Only down side for me is it shows the Football, but if that is your thing you will love it.
