Late Arrival

I arrived late to join a group of colleagues who has already ordered and mostly eaten. I was lucky enough to finish off what was still uneaten and even when it had cooled the garlic chicken and deep fried crispy chilli beef is first class. If there was more left I would have taken it away with... read more

Visited with the husband for an anniversary meal. We have been before but not for several years. Food as good as ever, service ok. Slight complaint in that we found it quite draughty & I had to keep a scarf on. Food made up for this. Will return.

On walking in the restaurant and asking for a table for two, the blonde lady behind the bar said "I will think about it" with a very un welcoming face. we are both laid back people so we took this as a joke, and proceeded to our table, after being handed our drinks (which were flat) we couldn't believe how...

A Post Christmas get together with a group of friends, 10 of us visited The Diamond last Friday evening. It's been a while since I was last there and found it disappointing. We were surprised to be asked to drop a £10 per head deposit in beforehand??????? It was lacking in atmosphere, being as it was fairly quiet this didn't... More

Amazing meal last night, my fella treat me to some the best grub in town. I've just read a few of the reviews on here and there are a few whinging about service and cost. If you want quick service and cheap food then go to maccies you peasants. You want good food and don't care if it's more expensive... More

The staff are nothing less than first class. If you are looking for silver service then I suggest you find another place to eat. However if you want a little bit of local charm and lots of friendly banter with your meal then there is no other choice in the North West. Its worth going back purely for the fun... More

We were up in Barrow in business and found this Chinese by accident. What a find!! We opted for the banquet meal. Fantastic food! Great staff with good banter that creates a superb atmosphere. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely visit again. Ignore any bad reviews this place is a Gem.

Went the Diamond for a wedding lunch with about 30 guests, the food great,service the same,staff very friendly. Overall atmosphere great. Not overpriced, even the drinks were a reasonable price too. Enjoyed the experience and left with a very full tummy as the portions were spot on.

Have to say the food was very nice, but we arrived at 8 had starters and a main course and didn't leave until ten past ten. We waited well over half an hour for starters, and then another hour for our main course, it then took them 20 minutes to give us the bill and let us settle up. They... More

We'd heard that the standard had dropped here having not been for a while. We came as part of a large group and found Lily back in charge, the waitresses were attentive and helpful, with some new faces, definitely an improvement. We all had variations on the banquet menu. All of our group of 20+ agreed that the garlic chicken... More
