“More Average Season than Great Season.”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Called into Great Season as we were staying at a hotel in the area, this had decent reviews on here so thought we would give it a go. The restaurant from the outside looks nothing special, looks more like a truckers cafe rather than a restaurant. The same could be said inside as well as only one table was taken on a Saturday night. The decor was very 70s and seriously needs modernising. At this point alarm bells were ringing.

However the food and the service were fantastic. Excellent silver service and friendly staff, who catered our every needs. The food was extremely tasty and not greasy like a lot of nog standard Chinese restaurants.

Potential is there to be a fantastic restaurant, just needs a little a bit of love and attention and it could become that.

“Very good food and sweet mannered service”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

First visit to this restaurant. Like other reviewers have said, I probably wouldn't have thought of eating here if the friends we were meeting had not suggested it. The best Chinese food I ever had was in Kashgar when cycling through Western China. After a few disappointing experiences in UK Chinese restaurants I have avoided them for several years. Eating here has converted me back again. Between us we tried quite a number of dishes and they were delicious. It was very quiet the night we visited but as we had a lot to catch up with news from one another it didn't detract from our experience. The sweet and smiling manner of the waitress contributed to a very pleasant evening.

“Amazing food!! Amazing Service!!”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

We visited the Great Season on Saturday evening following a recommendation from Roger at Cleveleymere and we were not disappointed!! It was a family celebration, my Mum's birthday and Mum and Dad's ruby wedding anniversary. Joanne was such a fantastic host, as well as her team. They were attentive, warm and welcoming, nothing was too much for them, including our pick up and drop off!!the food was amazing, by far the best Chinese meal we have had for many years. We could not fault a thing!! My father explained the reason for our visiting the restaurant and Joanne kindly presented my Mum with a cake and candles, a lovely touch which was greatly appreciated. Not only was this a lovely meal, it was also great value for money.
Thank you Joanne and your team for making this a memorable evening. When we visit the area again we will definitely be returning for a meal.

“Best Chinese in the area by far......”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

First let me say that the previous review is a complete load of rubbish.. The food is always hot, well cooked & the service is second to none.. Please any one reading this review ignore it & try for yourself, you won't be be disappointed.
Jo & Danny always welcome me back with a smile & there is always a table even when they're extremely busy..
As I am a very fussy eater, I find The Great Season a great place to dine as Danny will cater to my eclectic tastes..
