Good itself was delicious . Service terrible. My family have been coming for over 30 years and I personally won't be going back. Staff ruder than I remembered and it seems to be a case of if your face fits you will get good service. Not good enough when Retford now has plenty of other nice places to eat

Having been prepped on the local legend that is Freds I was happy to be eating their takeaway. Decor typical of a Chinese, food ok, not much more to say I'm afraid.

Four of us dined here this last week and couldn't fault it. Having not visited for a long time it was a welcome surprise to see how inviting the 'new' restaurant looks. We received a very warm welcome and were shown to our table where drinks orders were taken...the lovely young server waited beside our table very patiently while l... More

We did complain about the coldness & was brought a fan heater by the staff who are all very friendly but other... More

First time here and it won't be the last. Excellent meal and first class service. We were in a large group so thought it might be a struggle feeding us all at once. No worries, all the food came together and it couldn't have been better. Would recommend it to anyone.

I went over a year ago I think (time flies) and Fred had retired. The meal then was nice but I thought the style had changed and I personally didn't think it was anything special. However I gave it another try last night with my family and it was fab. The place had been refurbished (I bet I am the... More
