Thanks to a harmonious mix of fine Loire wines & carefully crafted European food, it’s been a fruitful 30 years for this Waterloo veteran. RSJ’s decor remains understated, all crisp linen,
light wood & cool grey walls, while relaxed, convivial service & a crowd of loyal regulars ensure that the place runs along healthily. The carte promises some complex treats, from confit
rabbit salad with tomato ‘petals’ & pickled mushrooms to coconut & lime buttermilk pannacotta with mango & passion fruit salsa, but it’s also worth taking advantage of the set menu
(£16.95/18.95 for two/three courses) if you’re happy to sample the likes of chicken & pistachio terrine followed by confit duck with dandelion, dates & green beans. Wine tastings, themed
evenings & cookery demos also help to keep things fresh.
