Good value buffet

I've been here a few times for the buffet and there's always a good variety of starters and main meals. I only noticed the salad bar at the end of my most recent visit. I tried some of the puddings this time which I didn't like at all. I went at 5,30pm when it's £10.50 which I think is good,... read more

We've been to this restaurant before but after this visit we won't be back. Had to wait for food on the buffet twice. One of them occasions was waiting for the cold salad to be replenished. There was plenty of customers but not enough to cause empty food spaces on the buffet. I was very disappointed this time. They had... More

This is a review for the downstairs area where they serve the buffet (I later found out that there is a dining room on the upper level). The food looked like it had been sitting a while, which is not very appetizing. It was also limited on selection and quantity - I wouldn't go back.

on arrival were made to feel welcome by the staff,upon being seated we were quickly attended to but also left enough time to get a good look at the menu . We ordered our meals and were very satisfied with the quality and the quantity overall a very pleasant dining experience would recommend without reserve

We went here whilst visiting Barrow and thought the reviews made it worth a visit. When we got there the tables were not cleared and wiped. The chairs were upholstered in plastic that had seen better days. The staff didn't seem to happy to be working or happy to see us! We decided to have the buffet before we arrived... More
