Delicious food, disappointing service.

We've eaten here several times as we live quite locally and always enjoy the food. Our most recent visit was for a Rod Stewart tribute night featuring the always amazing Paul Metcalfe. Having been asked to arrive about 7pm, we were still waiting for food after 8.30, and were still eating when the... read more

Duck was good and crispy with lots of pancakes. Mains not as good but the rest of our party enjoyed them. All food was piping hot and served in... More

We came for a Robbing Williams night. The food was acceptable - it was just about good enough to justify the price but nothing more. Standard Asian fare. However the entertainment was really fun and made the visit worthwhile.

Five of us attended for my son's birthday and to keep things simple we simply ordered one of the three set menu's - as it was a special occasion we went for the "Gourmet Set Menu" at £30 per head - that's not particularly cheap so our expectations were high.... .....and were still exceeded ! The starters included succulent satay,... More
