Great place to stop for lunch after a morning's shopping and the buffet is really cheap for what you get.

We ate at the Water Margin on 23 Mar 09. The food was lovely, service was good. Choice and options for an early week night buffet were great - 60 dishes apparently. The only thing I would say is it's not hugely cheap - our...More
