The buffet was excellent, with great variety of food, including vegetarian and international foods.

Went here for a birthday dinner. They have just redone the decor which looks great. Staff were friendly and helpful. Awesome selection of fresh food. The freshly barbecued meat was fantastic and plentiful. Thanks for a great night. Definitely worth the money

We booked in for dinner here due to the location and posters expressing 2014 gold beef & lamb awards. The seafood chowder was fantastic & so was the smoked salmon. The rest of the buffet ranged from average to above average and for the price was def value for money. We didn't opt for the fresher cuts to be cooked... More
