The High Street in Stevenage Old Town is certainly evolving, with a host of new eateries popping up. The Cromwell Hotel on the High Street has recently launched its new brasserie, Rump and Wade, and we stopped by for a family brunch to check it out.
Rump and Wade’s brasserie
It was a beautiful sunny day when we visited. Although we arrived at midday, just as Rump and Wade opened, there were already a few people sitting on the tables outside enjoying the weather.
Inside, the brasserie is pretty spacious, with old worldly decor. There’s a mixture of tables and booths, and highchairs are available if you need them.
There’s a well-stocked bar at the far end and plenty of toilets down a corridor on the left-hand side, including baby change facilities.
The staff were attentive and shared the daily specials. There was plenty to choose from on the menu. We were only in for a quick bite, but the food and drinks were good (I had Eggs Royale) and fairly reasonably priced.
There is a kids menu with plenty to choose from. Our son, however, is a very ‘selective’ eater, so we brought our own sandwiches to avoid drama! Little ones that eat a normal range of foods would definitely find something they liked!
It was pretty quiet on our visit as we were sitting inside on a lovely day, but I expect it can get quite buzzy in the evenings, especially when the cocktails come out!
