Café Rouge - Kingsway says

With a combination of delicious food, great wines and a real ambience, Café Rouge has embodied the style and je ne sais quoi of French dining since it opened way back in 1989.
Now with over 90 sites across the country it's just the place to mull over the morning papers with a cafe au lait and a croissant, pop in for a spot of lunch, share a post-work drink or relax over an evening meal.
The menu covers a range of French classics from croques and baguettes, ideal for a quick and easy snack, to more substantial fare such as steak frites and boeuf bourguignon. Likewise, the wines are predominately French; many made by lesser known producers, and provide the perfect accompaniment to the food on offer.
No hassle, no rush, no skinny- decaff-double-shot-to-go, just a vibrant atmosphere that moves with your moods throughout the day.

We booked for pre theatre supper at 18:00. We placed our order for one starter and 2 main courses at 18:20. By 18:50 the starter of avocado & bacon salad arrived, minus bacon! They had run out. This was A dish on the prix fixe menu. The Morroccan chicken main course on the prix fixe menu was not available , but we could order chicken with a mustard sauce. Our main courses still did not appear by 19:10 and so we walked out. We warned the waitress several times that we were going to the theatre and so expected prompt service. She didn't seem too bothered. She even said if we had to go we did not need to pay. We did have a bottle of wine whilst waiting, but she said we did not need to pay for it. Clearly they were short staffed in the restaurant and possibly in the kitchen too. There was no evidence of any supervisor or manager in the restaurant. We were extremely disappointed by this poor experience and went to see a nearby theatre show feeling hungry. At the theatre we had a meal of cashew nuts as a starter and a bag of crisps main course! I have eaten and Cafe Rouge many times and usually the experience is good. We have not visited the Kingsway one before and will not be going back any time soon.
