The food just melts in your mouth. Excellent if you want to go somewhere to try several meals in the once sitting with ease due to their menu style. You'll also never go thirsty because the waiter was on point with his water service rounds, hats off to you sir.

Fantastic service and delicious food. Going to an early sitting improved the noise levels. When they are full it can be really noisy.

We have eaten at Kneading Rubys 3 times now. The menu is modern and fresh and the Pizzas ( which is what we go there for) are delicious. I would give them a 5/5 if only the wait staff would be more attentive.

Kneading Ruby’s is always a treat, love the food. Please keep some Vegan and vegetarian options permanently on the menu so we can always come back. What takes the cake is the service. Very few places take as much care in how they present themselves.

The food was essentially very good, except for the salt level.
The mussels were so salty many people would not have been able to eat them.
Some other dishes were maxed out on salt too.
The chef needs to let the food speak more by itself as all the flavours were great and reduce the heavy handedness with the salt shaker.

Great welcome at the entry. Great choice of wine, beer and Cocktail menu to compliment.
Service was 5 star with constant follow up and providing meals within a timely manner.
Perfect alrounder with proper in house homestyle meals. This is a must see to experience the experienced staff that make it so welcoming .

The food and staff at Ruby’s are reliably delightful. We had an early dinner with 3 kids 6and under and the waitress helped entertain them with games of Simon says and eye spy. The lavender sherbet cocktail was delicious.
