“OK, but false advertising...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The fixed price Sunday buffet isn't the greatest of value at £18 per person, but can you complain if you are aware of the price before going in? Well, in this case...Yes!
To advertise it at £18 and then add a fixed 10% service charge is terrible. Advertise it as what it is... Fixed price buffet, £19.80. I have never encountered anywhere before that advertises a fixed price buffet at one price but charges another.
Oh, and to interrupt us and talk across the table to our daughter to ask her age is also very poor. They do this because the adult fixed price starts aged 10(!) and they think you are going to lie, so they ask the child direct.
Terrible attitude.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

Went Saturday night to celebrate a friends 60th birthday.
From start to finish the service was warm and friendly whilst remaining professional.
The food was very tasty and well presented.
We all had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and we will most definitely return.

“Resting on laurels”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

I've eaten here now three times this year and have decided enough is enough. The food is average, but very expensive. The waitresses struggle to understand English and the Maitre' D seems to be going through the motions. For the price paid, I expect at a minimum good service and good food and this was not the case.
