Xmas dinner at a price

Xmas Dinner was buffet style plenty of choice of veg.. Everything was hot. 1st course served by polite staff. Dessert and coffee was nice. But a lot of money for a meal you could have had Xmas Eve for less than half the £65 we paid for Xmas dinner..

had our Christmas work do here, lots and lots of food, it was really nice and different. I think the food offered was more Chinese than Thai though. Plenty of starter foods like prawn toast, veg samosas,chicken satays etc with sauces, nice

Basically a Thai restaurant but still offers non thai food like steaks and at christmas, the traditional english choices, carvery also available. But sticking to the thai food, it was the best thai outside of Thailand and Asia I have had. The choice as with many of this type of restaurant is very big, which can be a bit worrying,... More

We booked the day before and they were happy to receive our late booking. We had a great welcome from the staff. The decor was warm and comfortable and the service was of a high standard. The food was very nice, with a good range of carvery choices and desserts. We all had a lovely family meal and would definitely... More

A group of us went a few weeks ago - 2 vegetarians and 2 vegans. We'd seen it listed on a vegan website so we thought we'd give it a try. Unfortunately the waitress didn't think they did anything vegan, but went and got the chef to speak to us and he couldn't have been more helpful. He explained every... More

A Christmas day lunch to remember thanks to Chad, Chim and the team. A warm friendly reception, highly efficient service, generous portions of high quality Christmas food and a real Christmas atmosphere to add to the occasion. We are so pleased that the original team are back in place, they are the key to the success of the Royal Elephant... More

Yum yum is all I can say. I've read through some of the reviews on here and I don't think we've been to same place. Staff were very friendly and cooperative made us feel very welcome. We ordered drinks as we arrived and they come quickly to us as we waited for our table. They called us through and took... More
