Me, my husband and our 3 teenage children were all very pleased that we found this lovely little restaurant. The staff were very nice, the food was presented to a high standard and tasted great. We had an enjoyable evening, and was pleasantly entertained with some magic tricks from the Manager . Would definitely recommend, can't wait to go back.

I went here recently with the family for Dad's 60th birthday. I had never been here before (in fact, i don't think any of us had), but I loved it. The whole experience was excellent. The food was exceptional. Every single dish we had tasted so good. It was all hot, flavoursome, and cooked so well. We never had to... More

So glad we have found this little gem. The service and quality of food are second to none. The food is always served piping hot and is yummy. We have been here many times and never been disappointed, they serve the best crispy duck I have ever had. If you are lucky you may also get the added bonus of... More

This is the first time I've seen VAT added at the end of a bill, ie after an automatic service charge. Hyper-inflated prices for average food, which is saying something when you consider the 'cookie cutter' nature of popular Chinese menus.

Dear Darren F, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I can confirm that we do not add VAT at the end of the bill. We merely state at the end of the bill that our prices are inclusive of VAT and service charge is discretional. Some dining establishments do not publicly state about the inclusion of... More

Food was mediocre at best.Asked for some water and got a 2 litre bottle. I later realised this was not an upsell, but something to help the food slip down. The waitress spent most the time talking with a friend about her daughter and her impending ballet classes and there was no atmosphere. I would not return for all the... More

The Greyhound pub has morphed into the Dragon Inn and we couldn't resist a trip. The big plus points are freshly cooked food (oozing taste and care in preparation) and a cozy excellent service. It is a family run restaurant where pride in their food seems to be to the fore of all that is done. If you ask nicely... More
