Wondering where to go for a family meal on Easter Sunday, and decided to ring China Cottage to see A. If it was opened. B. If they had space C. If they were still serving their Sunday Buffet. The answer to all questions was yes, so I booked a table for 8 people. On arrival we noticed the restaurant has... More

Was treated by our daughter to a evening meal out. Knowing our fondness of Chinese food, she took us to this cosy restaurant. It was wonderful, well decorated in a modern style. The service was very good and the food excellent. Not had Chinese dishes as good as this since spending eight months in the Far East many years ago.... More

On the banquet menu we noticed some of the dishes had prawns in. As none of us eat shellfish we asked if we could... More

I am more used to eating Chinese food as a takeaway but this made a pleasant change, with a good atmosphere. We had booked a table and the staff were very attentive. The menu is laid out in a way we found a bit confusing and not helped by staff being unable to really explain what things were. I asked... More

Had a meal here whilst passing and the interior of the restaurant is nicely decorated. It is however very small and they tend to cram tables in together. At one point in the night I saw the waiter carry red hot skillets of food bubbling. He had to squeeze between 2 tables that were so close together he was touching... More

Every course was delicious & you definitely get value for money! We all enjoyed the place & food. We would recommend it & we will... More

Been eating here for a few years now , always a warm welcome . Sadly the food quality has suffered , for some reason . The prices have increased and the standard of dishes are not of the high standard of the past . The takeaway service is even more disappointing . Had special chow Ming and very bland with... More
