“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My wife and I dined her after reading good reviews and I found that in general they were right.
The food is very good and portions are not small, a little expensive but not too bad. The service was good but a little over attentive, sometimes I felt we were being watched to see if we had finished too much and the lighting is quite cool which you may like but I didn't.
Overall I would visit again as the food is very good.

“Chinese New Year Banquet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

My husband and I ate at the China Lodge last night. It was our first visit and we decided to have the New Year Banquet meal.. We were met on arrival and given a choice of several tables. The service was excellent and the food was fresh and delicious. The banquet meal gave us so much choice, 4 different starters, crispy duck and pancakes and then 4 main courses.The fried rice came wrapped in a lotus leaf which was rather a nice touch.The meal including 2 rounds of drinks came to around £48. Excellent value. Cant wait to visit again.

“Happy Chinese New Year - or not at China Lodge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

This was our first visit to this restaurant which opened late last year. There is no one to welcome you when you arrive and you are left feeling awkward while you wait for someone to show you to your table. We ordered drinks which arrived promptly and our order was taken. Unfortunately they don't do half portions for children! The food was hot and very tasty. My son had lemon chicken which he really enjoyed. Portion sizes were good. Unfortunately the waiting staff need more training. They looked at our table when we had finished several times but ignored us. Eventually a young waiter came over and we asked if we could keep the rice and the rest of the chicken dish as my son could not eat it all. He said yes then proceeded to stack all the dishes on top of each other so the food we wanted to keep was now squashed under other dishes!!!! He didn't come back and clean the table or move used napkins etc., Happy new year not a China Lodge, there were no fortune cookies no one wished us happy new year and when we came to leave once again there was no one around to speak to!!!!

I f you want a take away the food is fine if you want a good dining experience don't eat in!! The bill for 2 adults and a child two starters 3 mains and 1 ice cream 2 beers and 2 soft drinks £65.45

“Fabulous Chinese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Five of us went for Sunday lunch. The restaurant was not busy, so the service was really very good. But the food was even better. Its not cheap, but the quality and the portions were really good. Well worth a visit.

“Quality, authentic Chinese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Our first visit to this restaurant, which is relatively new to the town. The surroundings are tastefully furnished, and obviously new. Staff are attentive and speak very good English. The menu is extensive and the choice we made was freshly cooked, hot, and very tasty.
With not a lot of other "sit down" alternatives in the area, this gets our vote for the best ambience and quality of food and service, though some will say that the prices are a little on the high side -
we paid £40 for 2 courses each, with drinks and tip. We will return
