The food matched it's price - high but you get what you pay for no problem. Unfortunately the noise and heat from the overcrowded tiny restaurant with no ventilation will prevent us from visiting again.

Can't beat Fred's it's the best Chinese in the area by far. Staff have always been great and the food is delicious.

It states open for lunch from 12 - 2 in the week, me and husband wanted to go for lunch, but no response trying to phone so we drove down but it was closed, it advertises open on the menu and website but it was closed. Very dissapointed so we went elsewhere.

I've eaten at Fred's around four times, and each time we have been given delicious food. The decor and ambience are perfect. I haven't been for a while but am very keen to go back (wish my husband wasn't such a tight....).

Sadly disappointed … we have dined here several times but tonight we felt really let down - the starters seemed like they came straight from Iceland, in fact they weren't that good …over cooked and lacking in filling ! The main course was mediocre and the service left a lot to be desired- waited ages for the table to be... More

We used to be regular visitors to Feeds but have not managed a visit for some time now. We found the welcome very nice and the environment calm and pleasant. The service was excellent and food delicious.

From the start nothing was too much trouble, the staff were friendly and attentive throughout the evening. There were six of us, we all chose a different dishes that we then shared. The food was...

The food here is amazing. I must say some really good quality tasty food that's fresh and delicious.

Would book a table as very busy but with a taste of the... More

Every time I'm visiting Retford I tend to eat here with family. The food is delicious and has it's own uniqueness. The ingredients are fresh, well seasoned and are not greasy. I'm a big seafood fan and would recommend the seafood dishes and the duck pancakes are great to share for a starter. Great service too.
