Middle Eastern
Joseph Abboud opened Rumi restaurant with his wife Natalie in 2006 to critical acclaim and in 2011 opened The Moor's Head.

We offer a menu based on traditional dining experiences in Lebanon where small to medium sized dishes are shared amongst the table. The food is authentic but done with a refined approach and a deft interpretation of a classic cuisine. The plate size encourages sharing in the traditional dining style of Lebanon.

    Delicious veg options particularly the roasted cauliflower and the eggplant dish. A little lacking in ambience with no background music playing.

    Great food, great service, value for money. The best middle-eastern/Mediterannean food I've had. Been twice over the last few months. It's quite noisy so bear that in mind if you are noise sensitive. We have dined early, and late. Definitely more pleasant as the crowd dissipates, and the noise level drops. Otherwise, highly recommended.
