“Much enjoyed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Just returned from a delicious meal at The Lantern. We were on our way to eat elsewhere when we spotted this restaurant which looked smart and welcoming from where we were standing outside in the rain. There were plenty of tables occupied even though it was early evening and it continued to be fairly busy during our visit. We didn't have to wait long at all for our starter (Peking duck) and our mains arrived almost too quickly afterwards. But it was very tasty, and we were pleased to be served with hot bowls. We were very impressed by the staff and their friendly, efficient approach. We'll certainly be back.

“Chinese New Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Having eaten in this resaturant many times over the last 20 years or so, we were delighted to go back for the Chinese New Year celebrations this year. The food, the staff, the entertainment and the venue all contributed to a fantasic night that will be remembered by us for years. Watching Eddie completing the 'dance of the dragon' in the snow was something not to be forgotten, surpassed only by his interpretation of gangnam style song.The food was amazing. Highly recommend this place for everything from a casual meal to a big celebration night.

“Friendly / Good Value For Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Visited the restaurant on 2 Feb 2013 (Saturday evening) for my birthday with my wife and teenage son. It was a last minute decision and we were pleased to see the restaurant almost full at 7.30pm, not a bad sign for the first week in February. We had nothing fancy in terms of food, but both service and food were very good and more importantly, it was good value for money. All the staff that served us were friendly and efficient. Although we live locally, it is many years since we have been to the Lantern House and we need to make sure that do not wait so long for the next visit.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

My family are regular customers at The Lantern and we are never disappointed. The food is always delicious and the service is superb. The owners and their staff work very hard to make customers feel welcome so excellent food and excellent service make The Lantern very special.
