Best Chinese I have ever ate in and I have been in a few. It's cosy, staff attentive without being over bearing, car park to the rear. Never disliked anything.

My family and I have frequented this restaurant for years. It used to be a really nice place for something to eat but it seems to have gone downhill. The atmosphere in this restaurant is just downright awkward, it has no ambiance, is always really quiet and you feel very aware everyone can hear any conversation you have. The food... More

We have spent many meals in this restaurant, good food, but it is really needing some TLC and also needing to put the customers comfort higher in their forward planning to succeed in this area. on our last visit (which will be our last visit) the restaurant was very quiet when we arrived, a couple in one of the three...

My wife and I visited the China Cottage for their Sunday lunch deal which runs from midday till 5pm. The lunch costs £9.90 per person and for that you get 3 courses and an extensive choice of dishes. The food was very good and the service was just right, not too quick or too slow. I would accept peoples' comments... More

I've been visiting the China Cottage for years. This is my first online review of it. The food has always been top rate. The staff, especially Jason, are really welcoming and nothing is too much hassle. They will help you choose a dish as well as alter the spice level to suit. The prices are good, the portions are spot... More

Ordered a few takeaways from here in the past and suffered a few upset stomachs after. Decided to take the plunge and do a sit in with the restaurant with some family. Found the restaurant to be very dated with old carpets and very dirty window ledges. Visited the toilets and they only way to describe them is utterly disgusting!... More

Decided to visit the China Cottage with a friend at the last moment and I wished I hadn't. On entering the restaurant it felt dark old fashioned and tired. We ordered our food and on arrival it was ok but very average. During my stay I had an occasion to visit the toilets.....They were shockingly bad in todays standards. Very... More

First time in this restaurant for about 15 years. Decided to take my husband for Saturday lunch. Restaurant very tired and in need of refurbishment to keep up with other local eateries which are so much more appealing. No prawn crackers offered, soup just 'ok'. My husbands main course arrived about 3 mins before mines, he had chicken curry -... More
