“Video poker room, dirty, rough crowd...”

Stopped in looking for a drink & app before dinner w/ my husband and 17 month old daughter.

Had a hard time ordering - asked 3 times for calamari. Not sure if server didn't understand, forgot, or...?

Place seemed a bit dirty. Wiped down the table with a baby's wet wipe.

Realized after we sat down that there was a small room for video poker. Looked like this was the local for many to gamble and drink too much. Rough looking crowd. Wouldn't go back, especially not with my daughter.

We had lunch here by chance as we visited the New World supermarket.
Great staff Good service. Food is not bad and of reasonable price but the food took quite a while to be ready. We were not in a hurry so it was all right for us to wait for about 25mins. Nevertheless its quite a nice place for lunch.

Just the usual sort of pub food. Still cooked very nice, the staff were fantastic. Service was quick, and they could not do enough for you, which was lovely

From the moment we entered this bistro we felt welcome, with Jonny attending straight away to our two grandchildren (4 & 6) bringing them goodie bags full of crayons, stickers and colouring in papers. Great. The meal was very nice, with lots of flavour and we did not have to wait very long. All our meals came out together and we found this Robbies a nice, friendly and clean experience. Will definetly come again.
