We've been coming here for around ten years and we've never had a bad time! Fabulous food, especially for lunch and very family friendly. The prawns and mussels are the best for miles around.

We have been going in here for a number of years and it was getting a bit tired but they have done some refurbishment and increased the range of meals offered. As with most buffets there is a better choice in the evenings but daytime is still good. Good value for money and the new range of desserts is really... More

I have visited here a few times and found it a decent place to eat at. The food is reasonably good and is not expensive. The service is efficient and pleasant which is always good. For me the best thing is the selection of desserts which is plentyful. Worth visiting.

All plans to stick to my diet flew out the window in this place! The food was very well prepared, very tasty - all the dishes tasted different, not like some places where they basically seem the same. All the hot food was hot, the fried food was non-greasy, and the hot and sour soup was delicious, and not too... More
