Beware of the lure of the coupon, as well as, the signs with the great deal out front. This was the second most expensive place we ate, and not our second favorite place to have eaten, by far.

I've been to good ones and bad ones, but this Ponderosa stood out. I ordered a Ribeye and have to say it was the first steak in a long time that came out cooked exactly as requested - that even beats places known for their steaks. Also, there was a good selection of food and salad items at the buffet, and a nice selection for desserts. Hats off to this Ponderosa for the pleasant surprise.

Great menu choice,you decide when you enter what you would like for your entree,pay at the till and tell them what drinks you would like,they then show you to a table and bring out bread soaked in garlic butter ,drinks are brought out and your server explains how the restaurant works.
You go to the self serve and help yourself to a starter and after they have served your entree,if you still have room you can go to the self serve and help yourself to dessert.
The selection of food is fantastic.As there was 8 of us we all had different things from the menu.I had fried shrimp which is served with a jacket potato and it is one of the best jacket potatoes i have ever had.I got a salad from the buffet to start with,then for dessert i had some fresh fruit which was very refreshing.
The whole group said how much they enjoyed the food and the service.The atmosphere is relaxed and you don't feel rushed.Drinks are topped up and we had a cup of proper hot tea to finish.

You can't go wrong with Ponderosa. Always a great selection in the buffet. Food was good as always. It was a bit crowded when we visited but I guess this only speaks to it's popularity. The prices are reasonable, especially when the buffet has so many options.
