Imagine a meal like your grandma used to make but better, much better. Rigby's is a converted farmhouse with a homely atmosphere (for example family pictures/school work on the walls) with real home cooking. All the meat is from their own farm and delicious; the included plentiful vegetables are excellent and the chips (just one of the two potatoe dishes included) are the best I've ever had.

This was our second visit to Rigby's. Previous visit was Sunday lunch, which was enjoyable. We thought we would try the evening menu. It's a very retro, different kind of experience. Yes, the place could do with updating but it has some character.
The evening menu isn't cheap, but portions are generous and food was quite good.
However....any thought of returning was spoiled by the waitress or manageress when we paid at the bar. We paid by card, and she asked, while the owner was sitting behind us in an otherwise empty bar and within full earshot, if we would like to leave 10% tip on the card! No no no! Like most diners, we choose if and when to leave a tip. Blatant coercion was totally inappropriate. We won't return and cannot recommend.

We have been about 6 times now and have never yet been disappointed in the slightest. If you want traditional, tasty food at a reasonable price - this is the place to go. We have been on really quiet nights and very busy nights and the service has always been excellent.

Described as a 'Farmhouse' restaurant' but this should not be used as an excuse for very poor and tired decoration throughout. The food was poor for the price, but plenty of it.

Yes, I know it is situated in the countryside, but the restaurant had a strange farmyard odour from within which is not pleasant when eating.

The staff were very pleasant and effecient.
