When tabarns first opened, they were great value for money and quality food too. But recently has gone down hill.

Ok this is buffet restaurant help your self. Not ideal place to go out with family too much noisy too much crowded and not the best quality of food. If u want cheap meal then this place might be yours but other than that it's not. Won't be going here again.

This place is great for the kids and they can pick and choose exactly what they want and go and help themselves. Unlimited drinks and food. Lots of choices, from carvery to Indian and Chinese. Try to get the early bird deals for the best value (before 6pm)
