Excellent meal

Everyone was absolutely full of praise for the food and the excellent service. It does look a bit tired but as a converted pub the... read more

Decided to treat my lovely neighbour for lunch there as it was her birthdayas I had been before and it always had been a pleasant experience. They normally don't open for lunch except if you make a booking but it was already 12o'clock so I rang them up to enquire if we could come .They told me that we would... More

We have eaten here 3 or 4 times. The staff are friendly and the food is great, large portions at a reasonable price, not the cheapest but not the most expensive . The decoration could do with a little TLC, but the service and food soon make you forget that. The only thing I would say is that the family... More

Very busy and chaotic when we arrived with lots of large groups being catered for. They also do takeaways. Very efficient service once we were seated. Very reasonable price. Would not return, if closer would have a takeaway.

We have dined in Offley Oriental once, but we usually order takeaway. I'm Scottish and find the Satay sauce down south vastly different to the one I'm used to at home, I did however find it at Offley......until recently... :( I'm not sure what has changed but we have found Offley getting slightly worse each time we order and the...

My husband and I dine here regularly. We have had several birthday parties here over the years and have always been delighted by the meal and service. Jack and Ting Ting go out of their way to make it a memorable experience. It is worth requesting scallops (still attached to the shell they are so fresh) or lobster if you... More

Not really an establishment you would expect in a village, but it has a bar area for a drink before the meal. Good choice of food if a bit pricey and the owners and staff very curtious and welcoming

Sadlly this is my very first bad review. As stated by other reviewers the place is old,tired, not very clean and ABSOLUTELY FREEZING. Two poor youngsters were trying to cope with running the place. No warm welcome from the owner/manager. Beer very over-priced. Food just okay. Had to ask for napkins and told they werent washed and waitresss managed to... More

Mains chow mien dry and bland rice over cooked. Roast pork a few cabbage stalks underneath. Prawn in blackbean ok nothing special. Coffee my partners was coloured water... More
