Prices are a tad on the high side and drinks aren't the cheapest, but theres a lot of choice so cant really complain. The staff aren't the... read more

Super good with excellent service and always with a smile too. Never had a bad meal and reasonably priced too. Well worth visiting for good food.

Meal out with the family for my dad's 60th. We were hugely over charged & really disappointed. Small portions & very expensive drinks. We eat out a lot, but have never known anything so over priced. When we queried the prices, the staff were evasive and wouldn't give us an itemised bill. Only paid in the end to avoid embarrassment... More

I love Chinese food and as we were celebrating,I thought lets go to Freds Service was good but the food was poor and at the prices they are charging they should be ashamed. Starters were prawn toast (soggy), barbecue chilli ribs (tough pork ribs no meat deep fried with a chilli and pepper batter) and what looked like a Chinese... More

We went here for a family meal on a midweek evening. I have to say that I had not been to Fred's for years but on moving back we were not disappointed. The food was of excellent quality and service was good. Chinese food is always a little expensive a la carte but I have to say it was worth... More

Bland and poor. Expensive drinks. Not much character in the restaurant itself. Empty restaurant but given a table by the kitchen door. I've eaten in a lot of Chinese restaurants and have never seen fried rice like we were served , it most certainly came from a packet. It was a lurid yellow colour with other yellow flecks that might... More

Never used Fred's before, but as all the other local chinese take aways are closed on Tuesdays is thought if give it a try. The fact that they said it would be 10 minutes worried me first. All the meals were only just warm. The rice was awful tasted microwaved and flavourless. The dishes were so bland even ones that... More
