Still very good

I have been going to the Flower Drum for over 30 years and it is still a really good Chinese in fact the best in the area. Staff are friendly and the food and service is good.

We had an excellent meal last night for a large group of 20. We were well looked after by friendly staff. We had the very reasonably priced "all you can eat" menu, which included plentiful starters, a duck course and very tasty mains. Good food, good value. Thank you.

Dropped in by chance on this little place. We opted for a buffet which meant that you could choose what you want and it is cooked freshly for you.
