Been twice this week and both times the food has been great, service is friendly and just the right amount of time left before courses. Sometimes the eyes are bigger than the stomach! Would recommend, and will be going back.

We have had takeaway last week, food very good & value for money. We will be dining in very soon. Salmon and Singapore noodles are my favourite!

Matt suggested an Indian, but I wanted to watch my waistline, so we opted for Chinese instead. This is in a pretty part of the town on the banks of the River Welland. Our window overlooked the garden of the Ye Olde White Horse which was next door. It was mid-week and there was only one member of waiting staff... More

Lovely food, service a little abrupt, but having been previously we knew what to expect. Food kept on tray warmers which keeps it hot.

Went with party of eight on recommendation. Food was great, I had individual dishes as I'm a vegetarian and I left the chef to chose my food. I was not disappointed. The starter was fabulous, spring rolls, vegetables in batter and silken tofu in batter. Great wine and loads to eat.

This was a prebooked meal for quite a large group. One of the party had eaten here before and recommended it highly - we weren't disappointed. Service was fine, and they accommodated the fact that we had to eat quite quickly because some of the party were going to have to leave early. The food was really, really good -... More
