In a ‘world of escapism’ guests can start their journey in a restaurant inspired by international travel, passing through a ‘check-in’ desk before descending to ‘passport control’ and the bar in the ‘departure lounge’. The dining area itself includes a real Cessna aircraft hanging from the ceiling and private dining alcoves using seats from first class aircraft cabins.Once seated your next destination is the food area giving you the opportunity to interact with five-star chefs to design bespoke dishes, cooked fresh to order, all for one set price. Customers can stick to just one type of cuisine or concoct a combination unique to their taste, as well as helping themselves to the brand’s famous buffet of ready-made delights.

Ok for socialising

I'm not the biggest fan of all you can eat buffets but they are ok if a group of you are going and the pancakes are really nice but I prefer the food from normal restaurants as I find it loses some of the freshness if food keeps getting piled on food thats been stood a while

My sister, niece & I have been going to this place twice a year (on shopping trips to Nottingham) for a few years, before the move from near the Lace Market to much larger premises near the cinema complex. It does get very busy and we find the best time to go is at opening time around midday. There is... More

Not a lot to say except; awful! It's resembles a factory cafeteria with a larger selection of mush, not food! Half the serving dishes were empty, the staff all looked so miserable and obviously hate their jobs! Had to wait for plates, drinks and to get our table cleared!! I certainly wouldn't go again!

Thank you very much for your feedback. We take all of our guests concerns and comments very seriously, and would ask if you would mind discussing this further. We are a large buffet venue, and we do sometimes get compared to a cafeteria style restaurant, however we feel that our chefs and staff make us a much more personal experience.... More

Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciated your comments about our food being nice, however we were disappointed that you thought our staff weren't helpful and the venue was very loud. It does get fairly loud in our restaurant and buffet area, due to the popularity of our venue. We very much hope that this wouldn't put you off... More

If you go to an all you can eat buffet you should really know what to expect. At first glance a lot of food to choose from but then when you get down to it, a lot less that you would actually want to eat again. There's no denying that for the price you can gorge yourself on a huge... More
