“Cheap, but not cheerful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Tempted in by the lunch offer and having heard some good things about it from friends. Unfortunately the price is the only thing this place has going for it. I would have to agree with other reviewers that some of the staff were quite rude, abrupt, and seemed to regard customers as an irritation. One chap in glasses seemed particulalrly put out that we wanted to sit at a certain table rather than the one he indicated (we wanted a bit more space due to having a young child with us, and the place was half empty).

Buffet style, which is fine, but the set up wasn't great as large queues formed even though the restaurant wasn't massively busy. The location of desserts meant that you couldn't get to them because of people queueing for mains in front of them.

The food itself was average on the whole, some of it quite nice but far too much of it seemed obviously cheap, and the selection was bulked out with oven chips and potato croquettes. Not great.

Drinks not particularly cheap, bringing the overall value for money down. Frankly, there are much better offerings for this kind of thing. Buffet Island is far superior to this, as is Taybarns, which offers a huge buffet selection -including chinese- for a good price. Won't be going back.

“Spacious and great buffet!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Been here on numerous occassions. Cant fault the variety of nicely cooked food and the chocolate fountain is always a huge hit with everyone!
The layout of the restaurant is spacious and well arranged particularly for large parties/gatherings.
One of the better buffet restaurants in my opinion at a very good price, especially on a Sunday.

“Rude staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

Not a great amount of options available but a nicely laid out restaurant with tasty food. Service is disgraceful, on two occasions my plate was taken away from me whilst I was eating from it and I have received attitude from the staff numerous times. Cheap buffet in hanley but theres a lot better around Stoke on Trent
