Visited with family for lunch. Had a busy, happy bustling vibe. Nice and clean with lots of choice starters mains and desserts. Plenty of seafood too. Tables emptied of empty plates quickly when finished. Ice cream machine and loads of desserts to choose from. Great value for money. Will certainly use again

Nice little buffet food was very nice and good value for money. Just and average buffet. Was going to give it 3* but gave it 4* because of the pudding. The selection was amazing and had around 30 different choices - i was in heaven!!

A cracking little buffet venue. Is it the best? No but for the price and quality of food I'd say it's right up there. Well recommended.

There is plenty if choice starters, winds and ribs and I thought the ribs were massive but tasteless wings were the same little taste. I... More

We went on a Sunday late afternoon. We got a table straight away and ordered drinks. The choice of food was amazing and fresh. The desserts were amazing too with small portions available so you could try a few.The only bad thing was the difficulty we had in ordering more drinks as it became quite busy and staff ignored us...
