Just returned on a Saturday night. Went with my partner and children for first time. Very noisy and rowdy, food very average for the price. £16 for anyone over age 10. Not an enjoyable experience won't be returning. No complaints about staff. Our staff were all helpful and polite. Average food at a cattle market!

We had a lovely evening with family and really enjoyed the food. However, while I know you can't stop children coming into a restaurant I do feel that the desert station need to be staffed. In particular the chocolate fountain. When I went to the fountain there was a few children standing there with hands and fingers in the chocolate... More

After months of grief off the little one about going to THE CHINESE BUFFET, we eventually went for a Saturday afternoon meal. The food was plentiful and very tasty, it was constantly being refreshed. The little one loved going Back and back for good and also the 6 desserts she demolished. Definitely recommend this place maybe next time we'll try... More
