Too slow service, a bit tatty too but very tasty fare.

Food was very good & so much better for being cooked fresh i thought. However the place looks well used with several very well worn chairs & quite a bit of chipped china as we experienced. Service by a single member of staff, whilst in an unbusy eatery was very slow. Had it been still a buffet we... read more

This restaurant has been much improved now that they have changed the all you can eat buffet to food that is freshly cooked to order. I've eaten here many times since it opened several years ago and would recommend it. I haven't tried the takeaway menu so can't comment on this but if the restaurant food is anything to go... More

We often have takeaways from here which are fab they give generous portions and reasonable prices. I've visited the restaurant once for a get together with friends and I couldn't believe how was on the all you can eat menu for such a good price! The only problem we had was it was absolutely freezing in the restaurant but I'm... More

Came here for lunch on Saturday. Food was ok but the restaurant was so dirty. Floor was disgusting looks like it has never been cleaned. The Windows were filthy. There were rips in all the chairs. My husband used the toilet and said it was blocked and there was urine on the floor. This was at 13.00 pm. Dread to... More

Visited yet again with my wife on Friday night, had another fabulous meal and to top it off at the moment it is only £9.95 per person for all you can eat off the main menu. Thats due to the restaurant celebrating it's 10th anniversary. The buffet in the day is only £4.95 at the moment also.

I've called back a few times since my last visit. They still have a buffet in the afternoon but have vastly extended the choice. It is 'all you can eat' still and there is no limit on the number of visits you can make to the food counter. The staff are attentive and keep refreshing the food. The desert was... More
