We eat at Ruse every couple of weeks as our offices don't have a kitchen area. The pizzas are very good and are proper hand rolled bases which is why you wait a little I suppose. Not sure why the previous reviewer called it a student pub as we have never seen students in there, much more a late 20's relaxed kind of place. There is also karaoke on Friday nights which we have been to once and is a good laugh.


Ruse is a student pub trying to bring in diners, but the food is consistently awful. Lunchtime today - we ordered a Mediterranian Pizza and after waiting half an hour I went up to enquire where it might be. I was told that pizzas take 20 minutes and there had been a que. When it arrived 10 minutes later the pizza was slicked in oil and lumps of a very strange tasting pesto. I've had sandwiches in here before, laziliy put together with barely any filling. I won't be going back!
