We had not been for a while because the quality and variety of food had really deteriorated but I am more than pleased to say it is back to it's best. The food was absolutely delicious and of excellent quality. We will definitely be back soon.

Me and Joe go here what seems like weekly! The food is always fresh and the meat is really tender. It's quite cheap as far as buffet's go. From 7pm onward they do a 'Grand Buffet' which is what we usually go for. To be honest the savoury options dont really increase other than the addition on the cook to... More

We had a great group night out here - it's not gourmet dining but the food is tasty, there's a great choice and it's it's at least as good as any other 'all you can eat' buffet I've visited.

A bit of a shame really the attitude of one member of staff today tutted rudely when my daughter got stuck in her wheelchair and we had to ask someone to move. How awful considering the other customer was ok about it as he/she could see she was actually stuck!!! Apart from that the food was fine much the same... More

I go here regularly and have found the staff to be very friendly and the prices extremely reasonable. The food is always hot and is constantly topped up on the buffet, the duck is amazing as well as the crispy chilli chicken. Wide selections of deserts are available, My favourite being the crème brulee .
