This was my first visit and I didn't know what to expect based on other experiences but it was nice, proper tables and the decor was simple but clean. It was well presented and I like the ice-cream in the individual tubs - much better than a spoon in a big tub where you don't know where it has been.... More

Decided to call in with my husband and baby for a quick tea at 5.30. There was a good selection of food which was all surprisingly hot and fresh. Our bill was £21 including drinks so was very good value for money. So glad we decided to visit instead of calling a take away. Will defo visit again.

Been here several times now and food is very good even for fussy eaters. If your wanting more selection like fish, prawns, steak it's better to go on an evening. Plenty of choice and food is changed regularly so food isn't sitting out for long periods of time. There's also a salad and sushi bar along with plenty fruit and... More

Every time I come here it never fails. So much choice, food is lovely both for lunch and evening. I personally prefer the evening sitting but I hadn't any complaints when we went a couple of Sundays ago when I was able to enjoy a Sunday lunch and/or Chinese foods. Will of course keep going back
