Lovely local Chinese, which we visit more than we should really! We don't tend to use the restaurant as we're local, however we can highly recommend the food, service is good and staff always friendly.

The best bit was the food which was the... More

The food took over an hour to arrive, admittedly there were quite a few of us, but we were utterly fed up by the time dinner arrived.
