Both the chinese and local dishes not forgetting the cocktails were the best around

We arrived at the restaurant on a Friday night at 9pm, to find only one other table occupied, we should have taken that as a warning.
The waitress was a very friendly English lady, who could not have been nicer or more helpful. Because of this we did not complain when the Chinese food arrived swimming in grease. The started was edible (think bad drunken takeaway), but the main course was in-edible. I ordered the crispy beef- it arrived in a bowl with a thick layer of oil covering the sauce, and in what looked like a pink tasteless soup. There was nothing crispy about it. It tasted like stewed beef in grease and oil. My boyfriend had the sweet and sour chicken, which also arrived in a soup- he gave up after eating 3 pieces of congeled grissle.
We didn't have the heart to say anything to the waitress, because, as my boyfriend said, it would have been like shooting Bambi. However, seeing the vast amount of food that we left, she did comment that they had recently got a new Chinese chef. If that was the case, then i hope they have now replaced him before their business suffers. As the setting, and the waitress were lovely.

This used to have the best Chinese chef and pizza around. Now we can never find it open. We used to love sitting right down by the water edge and having pizza. It's now the end of May 2012 and still no waterside tables.

A sad little place that is no example of how to run a restaurant. Great Chinese chef but `just not putting the welcome mat out. Oh, and be carefull not to fall over the chains around the pavement tables. Somewhat dangerous!
