We visit multiple times a year and never have a bad experience. It is our favourite Chinese restaurant and no other seems to compare. Keep the good work up and we shall be back soon!

I was given the wrong meal, pointed this out to a very ignorant waiter, who, without a smile or an apology, whisked my meal away and said he'd fetch me the correct one. My husband was over half way through his meal, and feeling uncomfortable at eating without me, by the time my correct one arrived. When it arrived, again,... More

We love Fred's chinese restaurant and eat there often, so considering that and the fact that we were all home on NYE we thought we'd eat there and save cooking. We booked for the 9'30 sitting as we thought that would be best for seeing in the new year and were seated quickly although we were surprised that there was... More

8 of us went to Freds for a works meal and it was just spot on. Good fresh food, we were looked after by the staff very well as well. Considering how busy and full the place was we didnt really have to wait long for our food. I would recommend this restaurant with out a doubt and would definitely... More

Excellent food. A little cramped...due to the place being so popular, but this did not spoil our evening. Make sure you book because you may not get in!

Went mid week for a family meal. Didnt have any booze and stuck with duck to start followed by mains (no sides) It was nice food but due to the volume of food and lack of drinks it was a tad expensive

I always used to rate Fred's as the best Chinese restaurant in town but after a visit earlier this year, I was very disappointed. The food seems to have gotten a little less tasty but lot more expensive. Such a shame.

After being to this restaurant a year ago i suggested me and a group friends should go for a birthday celebration. However the food was poor quality compared to my last meal in 2013. I ordered sweet and sour chicken expecting chicken pieces with vegetables with sweet and sour source but received a chicken fillet with sauce with no vegetables.... More

Known Fred since being very young, service never fails and the food I think is the best in Retford. The new refurb of the restaurant looks brilliant, and the food is still at the standard it has always been. Drinks are a little pricey, same for the food but I would always come here when I don't fancy a takeaway... More
