A lovely evening on a very cold night. Restaurant was warm & welcoming. Only criticism is staff are a little too rushed to clear plates. Everyone at table should be finished before table clearance commences.
Hi Jill, Thanks for taking the time to provide us with a review of your visit and experience here at RST Seafood Restaurant. We're pleased to hear that there were elements of your visit you enjoyed, and that you had a lovely evening. We're sorry to hear that you felt rushed in there being plates cleared at your table. In relation to the rule of everyone being finished before plates are cleared, traditionally that is which things were done and is the formal and traditional for of dining etiquette. It all depends on the group, individuals and situation, and different variables come into play. We never want people to feel rushed, and I'll certainly pass on your comments and feedback onto our staff and team. In future, if you elect to dine with us, let our staff know at the commencement of dining your preference and we'll ensure that is the way in which we look after your guests and yourself.

Haven't been for a few months, but not much has changed. A few more salads, but our favourite tomato and bocconcini one has gone which is sad, and the beetroot and goat's cheese one is more rocket than beetroot and goat's cheese. But the oysters are as good as ever, and the fish moist and tasty. A good reliable local gem.

Pleasant meal but not amazing. Prompt service.
Thanks for taking the time to provide us with a review of your visit and experience here at RST. We're pleased to hear that there were elements of your visit you enjoyed, and appreciate your constructive feedback. I'm unsure if you mentioned any of your constructive feedback with us at the time, we do however value the comments of our customers and feedback. Without knowing the details of your visit (as your review was submitted anonymously) it's difficult for us to know more. We do urge you to in future let us know or provide your details, so we can discuss further. We do hope you'll return and thank you for getting in touch.

My wife and I took a close friend who'd never been before. She loved it and we all had a great time. Lots of seafood starters were delicious. Service was very friendly and reasonably quick given it was a full house. Will definitely return.

I'm pleased to hear that there were a range of things you enjoyed, and I'll be sure to pass on your feedback and comments to our staff and team.
