Haven't actually been to the restaurant, but sampled the salmon and risotto dinner at the London Food & Wine Show and it was simply superb!!! Highly recommend that dish...

“Great place for an entertaining dinner choice”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

The buffet offered was full of excellent choices for myself and my spouse. The meat choices were great such as prime rib, chicken, and fish. Many different salads, soups and pasta and then there were all the desserts and coffee or tea. All this while being entertained with the prospect of winning big on the ongoing horse races outside the dining room windows. A neat option for a great meal and a entertaining night out

“Unique dishes with vsomething for everyone”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

We made a return visit and found the 5-station buffet extensive and beautifully laid out. That night they fed 500 diners, and the staff were still able to maintain the buffet to keep it fresh, replenished and hot. There are suprise dishes: fish chowder, a tangy beef carbonara, and lots of vegetable choices. All in all a classy array, tended by courteous staff. The ongoing sulky races make this an ideal spot for a corporate or other group.

We will certainly return for a special evening.

“Buffet needs work; entertaining location"”
Reviewed April 10, 2011

We went after the Home Show, arriving right after opening time for the buffet. After settling in and glass of wine, we were eating our first tastes of what appeared a lovely buffet 25 minutes after it opened, only to discover the meat dishes...lamb, pork, chicken and sole, were petrified to the point of being difficult to cut. Too bad because it offers a great view and layout, for a different night out at the races.
