Went with 14 people back in November 2013. Didn't start off too well as one of the staff member 'Samantha' was very rude, ignorant, no sense of customer service and a terrible attitude spoiled the evening. JRC need to see who they are employing as choosing the wrong person on a customer based environment is not the right way.

Been there today for lunch. Quite expensive £15.99 per person on Saturday so we asked if we could look around first. We were quite impressed with the range of food available so decided to sit down.

The food quality is surprisingly good I must say. We thought it would be one of those "mass production" quality but actually they are quite nice. Roast duck has crispy skin ( which is rare in buffet restaurant !), fried fish was nicely done( though they claimed its cod but we don't think so, they are just normal frozen white fish), prawns were meaty and firm, basmati fried rice was very nice, fresh salmon is fine ( you don't normally have that in buffet so it was a lovely surprise). We really appreciated the fresh fruits (pineapple, grapes and oranges) as well.

Overall the food is a bit salty for our liking but we felt that they have taken it seriously, and will go again.
