Great evening. Wait staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about food and wine list and very good at suggestions. Food was simple produce served with flair and some interesting ideas.

Great place if you want bar snacks but we were left feeling hungry lacking a main meal. The wait staff were attentive but would carry out one drink at a time, not a great use of resources. Overall Bar Rochford was underwhelming compared to the hype.

Place was buzzing with conversation and alcohol. Drinks and atmosphere were most notable. The main dishes were small portions and average tasting. Dessert was delicious and the best thing we had on the night.

About Bar Rochford

Wine time! At home in ACT’s oldest building, Bar Rochford is the ideal place to catch up with friends over a glass of wine and nibbles. The space is rustic and welcoming, with shiny concrete floors and comfy army green booths. Start off your evening with a glass of Tempranillo from Madrid and a charcuterie board featuring delicious meats and cheeses. These guys will have you coming back for more! Best dish: Roasted eggplant, labneh, smoked harissa.
