This was an OK place but it's trying to do too much and the standards are slipping it was also difficult at time to navigate the buffet set up as space was at a minimum although the restaurant itself is quite big. This was a midweek visit and I was pleased to see that there was an extensive range on... More

Begrudgingly paid our £40 bill for a family of 4. Dreadful food, all cold and horrible. Could not find one thing that was ....nice! Not fussy eaters and down to earth family but will never return. Sorry!

Buffet style serve yourself. Can eat as much as you like , but will give this a miss . £12 for evening but food dry not kept topped up, drinks on the expensive side . Save your money or go somewhere else.

The service at the Gurkha is very friendly and efficient. There's a wide variety of dishes, and lots of them are suitable for vegetarians! The food is very filling but you can stay all evening and keep going back for more!
