Very impressed with the large selection of gluten free choices (for a change), I usually struggle! It was heaven as I was able to have gluten free starter, mains and dessert - really brilliant. Thank you - the food was yummy and my other guests...had a lovely chilli. We will definitely be back- excellent family run and friendly place to have lovely food - well worth a trip.More

Lunch with mum. A great bar but the owner seemed highly stressed out with the 15 customers at that time. But the bar man redeemed her behaviour. Really nice food but seriously overpriced. £ 28 a sirloin steak isn't affordable sadly. Maybe we will return...at a more hectic time to see the place in full flow.More

What a find ! A seemingly relentless 5 hour journey home with elderly parents. Wanted to give them something to eat rather than motorway caff durge. Spotted this on here, booked on my phone and rocked up. What a gem! Food lush, good portions staff...lovely and nice surroundings. Will definately be using this place whenever around Bristol way!!More

Fabulous meal with friends. The food was GREAT. The full rack of ribs were fantastic as was My Hunters chicken. I asked for a full salad instead of chips and I certainly was not disappointed. The service spot on. Will 100% be back soon

God I love this place, not being able to pop in for sunday dinner during lockdown has been a true low point. The Rudge feels different post-covid, the team have worked so hard to keep their customers safe and less tables gives an airier feel,...I can also imagine how frustrating it must be during such difficult times to have to limit your customers and teach them how to follow the safety guidelines (come on people it's our responsibility, how difficult is it to register your address and stay where you're put?!) As for my dinner, no more walk up carvery, damn you covid, but plated sunday roast was everything I could wish for if I'd served it myself, lovely dessert too...who ever thought of putting jam rolypoly on the menu deserves a medal. Would deffo recommend and return.More

Visited here 12th August as it is our local eatery. The service was great, we had a table in the garden and they were very accommodating of our dog. Unfortunately the quality of the food was really poor, it was obviously 'freezer/fryer/plate' - not at...all special or tasty, and the pervasive smell of dirty frying oil in the air did nothing to enhance our experience. Even with the 50% discount was not value for money at all. We would have enjoyed a visit to the local chippy more. Will deffo not recommend or return :(More

Carvery regulars here. £12 for standard 2 slices of meat. Or £13 for 3 slices. They have a selection of pork, turkey, beef and gammon. Have all the usual trimmings unlimited Yorkshire’s, roast parsnip, stuffing, cauli cheese, swede, broad beans, french beans and carrots. The...veg is slightly over done but we like it like this. Never have any room for dessert. Had the beef which was nicely cooked, pink in the middle. The staff are friendly.More
