This was my first visit to the Golden Cross and I wasn't disappointed. Great choice of food, we chose the set menu and all of the food was fantastic. The portion sizes were just right and the presentation was good but most of all it was cooked properly and tasted amazing. The staff were friendly and efficient and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. I will return!!

4 of us enjoyed the meal for 4 from the menu. Excellent set of starters presented in dishes in the centre of the table. Followed by duck, then main courses. As one of our party was celebrating a birthday they presented us with a plate of fruit with a candle. Nice touch!

I have been using this restaurant for several years with friends, partner and family. The popularity of the restaurant means that you have to book some time in advance to ensure a table and for special occasions the staff help the celebration by decorating your area of the restaurant or table. After the meal there is always a fanfare, then music followed by a procession by the staff with a little extra something on the house.
When attending a business course a few years ago I used this restaurant to give an example of the meaning of good customer service. The staff are not only super efficient but also have a great sense of fun and create an ambiance of relaxation to make sure you have a superb dining experience.
The food is always exquisite and varied, always fresh and with the little extra touches of creative garnishes.

This is an excellent Peking Cantonese restaurant, food has always been excellent at visits over a number of years now. All dishes are well presented and as tasty as they look. the menu lists some more unusual dishes which are worth exploring. Thouroughly recommended and well worth a visit.

I have also tried the Takeaway service which is equally as good and again has some interesting options.

At first rather an odd place, you come in from the car park into what is a local pub which serves great beer. No wonder it is popular..have a beer collect your take away.

The restaurant, which sits just behind the bar, is a quiet non assuming sort of place. But the food was excellent. Do try the mixed starter which was truly amazing. What was also very nice was that the wine list was both extensive and well priced.

Definitely to return to.
