Good Concept, Average Execution

I really liked the idea of China Cottage's "Pick n Mix" menu, and although the quality of food was perhaps slightly disappointing, the concept is a commendable one. Settings wise, China Cottage has seen better days. I suspect there hasn't been a re-furb here since the 90's, and whilst the dining... read more

Visited for dinner with my wife. The food was alright but nothing special. I food £2.50 for a can of cola to be to much. Portion were small. Really feel I would have had better value and quality.at my local takeaway. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Decent Chinese restaurant with quick service, had prawn crackers, barbecue ribs as starters with chicken and cashew nut and egg fried rice for main course. Dined with party of three, service good, food served quickly enough and reasonably priced just thought food ok not great.

Three of us went for dinner on Sunday afternoon and took advantage of the China Cottage's £8.90 for 3 courses between noon and 5pm. Usually when you get this kind of deal, the menu is pretty limited but not in this case. There's a massive choice of dishes (well apart from the desserts) but the food was really good and... More

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.
