“Food was horrible”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

I ordered a chicken and bacon melt with a barbeque sauce. When the food came,it was soggy and un edible. My friend ordered steak with pepper corn sauce and ended up with gravy with some pepper corn. What happened to the quality of food. Shame as service was ok

“Dreadful service and awful food at the Red Onion”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

Food took over an hour to arrive. No explanation was given.
The burger (£10) was as basic as can be imagined and the meat was utterly devoid of flavour.
My son ordered the ribs and they arrived on a plate with nothing else.
My son chose this 'restaurant' but at the end of the meal he said that he won't be choosing it again.
I suspect the burger was not home made at all and I think they used MSG on their food too.

“Not at all happy”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Been in guernsey 3 years and always rated the food at the red onion that was until today went in and ordered mushroom soup for starter but what I received was like water with vegetables definetly not like any mushroom soup I've ever had before complained and sent it back to be informed it was in fact polish mushroom soup because all the chefs are polish surely it should be on the menu as this or just employ a decent chef and the main was not much better BBQ chicken melt with what tasted like watered down BBQ sauce they seriously need to rethink what there doing food wise as at the moment I doubt I will be returning any time soon
