I visited this restaurant yesterday (Saturday) as well as the previous Saturday, and I have to say we had a lovely meal and could not fault anything with it. I was a bit off-put by some of the recent reviews however as we have been on many occasions before and never had any problems, we thought we'd try it again.... More

Went here recently having always been satisfied on previous visits. There were not many people in and now I understand the reason why. Having had soup and some duck / pancakes etc. we went onto the Mains. I can honestly say nothing there looked appealing enough to eat, there were more either empty or almost empty trays than full ones,... More

Have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years and it's variable in quality but has generally been reasonable. However the food we had there today was salty or seasoned with MSG to such an extent that none of us could quench our thirst for the rest of the day! Food selection is average but no prawn dishes during... More

Food seemed nice though none of the signs for each dish were in the right place. Plates and cutlery looked dirty. We had someones chewing gum stuck to the menu holder on the table. After one plate full I started to feel unwell, went to the toilet and I almost threw up they were that disgusting and smelt awful. If... More

We chose this establishment to celebrate a family members baby shower. We waited to be asked what we would like to drink but ended up having to go to the bar ourselves (even though it wasn't busy). 1 of our family just turned up to have a drink with us to show her face for the occasion & left before...

My wife and I went on the evening of Sat 1st February. The place was quiet busy but there were very few members of staff on duty. I had to ask twice to have our used plates removed. Most of the buffet containers were nearly empty. The food I selected was barely warm. I spoke to a member of staff... More

We went here today with the kids for our new years dinner, the food was lovely we all went home full, prices good but obviously bar prices bump it up somewhat. I was a bit disappointed though as I've been many years ago and remember the staff been much better than today, they seemed completely uninterested, ordering drinks was a... More

We visited here with another couple and even on a Saturday night just walked right in and there were plenty of tables available. The area is handy as there is plenty of free on street parking nearby. The restaurant is pleasant enough, reasonably clean and tidy but a bit lacking in atmosphere, I wouldn't want to come here on a... More
