It's kind of embarrassing how many times I've been to this place, but there is a reason: the staff are (generally) friendly, the food is plentiful and delicious and overall it is good value for money.

Another lovely visit. Staff very polite and food very good. Would recommend to anyone who wants a buffet style dinner. Really enjoyable evening had by us all. Will definitely be returning.

Just awful. Service was dreadful. Food was of very poor quality, mass produced (probably). When I asked for more duck on the buffet, the look I got really shook me and then I was told to "wait - like everybody else". I didn't wait - we went elsewhere. We won't be returning. They need courses on customer service.

First visit recommended by friends. An early Friday meal thought we might have trouble getting in but the restaurant was a great size and.plenty of tables. There were a steady amount of customers coming in and out. Food was great and plentiful and alot of it the desserts wow loads. Would recommend for all people.

On my arrival My friend slipped on the wet floor, the manager didn't even ask if she was ok she just stood there staring. Then they took ages to sit us down when the place was harder full. Finally sat down I went to feed my 1 year old son and took an EMPTY bottle out of my bag to... More

Food is terrible, staff are rude, took 45mins of waiting just to get a drink and when I eventually got it the drinks were flat. Was overcrowded and fire exits were blocked and to top it all off the night ended in a big fight in the restaurant!!

I've not been before, but the buffet was very good. Lots of choice and very varied. Extremely good value for money as well. But what made it feel particularly enjoyable were the very friendly staff. I suspect this is a family run business, and they really do care about diners.

Not a busy place, looks are good. Buffet food, very good, good variation and help yourself, good turnover of food so fresh and very tasty. Staff great. Ambience the only minus point, but really the food makes up for it. Good value too. Worth a visit

This is the second time this restaurant has let us down. Some months ago we went to go for lunch but despite the website details it was closed with no one around. We went today and despite phoning ahead at the weekend to make sure they would be open lo and behold they were shut. A family turned up at... More
