The trouble with setting high standards and expectations is that you have either meet or exceed them. In this it was good but only close to excellent. Close, but no cigar. Ordering on the website is easy and the frequent offers in my email inbox are appreciated. Having left an Easter weekend order until late and not being sure of my plans, I opted for collection over delivery. A call received shortly after to confirm acceptance and agree a collection day, then radio silence. On the day and as previously, any attempt to call rings out until a recorded message advises that the mailbox is full. From previous orders I have the mobile number of one of the staff so text him to make final arrangements and again when I arrive at the Albert Square location, parking outside Red's True Barbecue in a meter bay. Last time, they brought my order out but this time I'm waiting on the steps until my presence is acknowledged, then El Jefe trots past me and in. He reappears with my order in a box and I'm home to squeeze it all into the fridge. I don't check the contents or recipe sheet. On the day of tucking in, I get it all out of the fridge and loom at the recipe sheet. It's for a different menu. I've got the Easter lunch special for one and the pork belly and sticky toffee for another. The website helps me with some of these but it's then that I also realise that I should have Yorkshire pudding and two gravies. I have one, large, pot of gravy and no Yorkshires. A bit of trial and error and the meals are cooked and served. Once on the plate, it's all good albeit that desserts don't come up to the same standard on size or quality as the starters and mains.

I expected the food to be better. Looks encouraging but it was just ok. Like the place outside in sunny day - nice spot.

Absolutely beautiful food, we come back again and again and have never been disappointed once in five years. Excellent service, lovely atmosphere and in the centre of the city. A little more expensive than other places but worth every penny. Definitely book before going - you don't want to miss out. Highly recommend this place - definitely try the corned beef hash.
