It’s the best £6.90 you can spend anywhere. Lovely buffet, cheap drinks menu, liqueurs under £3, cocktails under £5, and my fav drink brandy coffee under £4. The hot & sour soup gorgeous. Lovely staff too. You can’t beat it.

We have just visited on a Sunday evening, bemused to find it quiet. I can only think management or the kitchen staff have changed, because the meat is tough, the other items are not as “tasty” perhaps they now use low quality raw materials perhaps???...More

It was £4.95 cash only for unlimited Chinese buffet so if on a tight budget this is the place to go ! Old converted pub and it looked tired but food was nice although the choice seemed to be chicken or chicken or mushrooms !...More

Only small parking area outside the Restaurant at front and some parking is allowed in side street by Restaurant. I am sure you would find somewhere close by if you cannot park outside.
