“Air-conditioning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We had another lovely meal today (party of 3) but could have done without the air con blowing. We were frozen and so was our meal before we had finished it.

“On its way down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Visit started off badly, I booked a table about six weeks before hand to make sure we could get in on new years eve.Upon arrival we where told there was no record of our booking,we where fitted in.
we ordered two large pepsi's with the meal two pint glass's turn up 3/4 full and as for the taste it tasted of soda water not pepsi very poor.
Considering it was the grand buffet at nearly £12 it was poor. The dishes to choose from where not as good and varied as we have had in the past. Sauces and syrups watery and a very small choice of deserts.
To many cut backs on choice and quality, and no longer value for money
