Myself and my partner eat out allot and as one of us is chinese you would expect some to be... More

Arrived just after 12 lunch, nice selection on the buffet of Chinese food also kids friendly food, fish fingers, mini waffles etc, would recommend anyone to try here, excellent price and food quality, my only small criticism was the room felt cold there was three of us and we all felt cold,this is not enough to prevent further visits..

Visited the buffet this evening for a family meal. We have been several times before and to be honest it's always been okay, however on each visit this place seems to be on a downward spiral. The decor is looking very shabby the tables seemed dirty and the whole place generally felt a little uncared for. The food, again is... More

I have been here a few times now. The food is always really good. One evening we arrived not far off closing time. The staff made us fresh food of anything we wanted if there was not much left in the buffet. They alter some of the dishes as well which is nice for a change.

We visit here quite often the afternoon buffet at 4.90 is excellent value. The food is good with a limited choice compared to some of the larger buffets around but that is reflected in the price.
