Great food (hot pot and lasagne a bit bland but curries are superb), nice surroundings and friendly/helpful staff. Cannot fault this place especially at £5.99 all you can eat and available on Saturdays too at this price.

Was in for 15minutes, had a pint and got some food. Absolutely awful. Plates were cleaned by some rookie. Food looked like it had been on the buffet since the pub opened and tasted appalling. Left to go get food elsewhere. Not recommended.
