Having eaten there a few times we have put up with the chilly restaurant as the food has always been excellent, however tonight the attititude of the manageress has really got up my nose and on principle I will not be lining her pocket with my hard earned money. We took advantage of their buffet however when ordering a variety... More

Good place to eat with good service. The only criticism was that I had a problem with the chairs. They were very awkward to move them, especially when seated as they are really heavy and deep-seated.

It was a Thursday evening so we qualified for the £16 per head eat all you want, each dish cooked freshly and you can order as many dishes as you want. very nice meal and very good value.

Excellent Chinese! We have been looking for another special one, ever since our favourite Chinese closed down a few years ago, called The Fountain in Lansdown, Bournemouth. Very impressed. Delicious, fresh, hot food. Good valve and wonderful, happy, helpful staff. Love it! Thanks for a wonderful few meals there, we will be returning with more friends x

The whole family (6 adults & 3 children) had a Sunday buffet lunch. The choices were adequate with 3 courses available to us, although dessert was beyond me. The service was OK but at times they disappeared and hard to trace for assistance. The food was prepared and cooked just right but later on, and probably because we were the... More

I went to the buffet evening with a large group for a special occasion, we were advised to order one starter each which we did, we were told each starter would be enough for six people which in itself was silly really as not everyone wanted the same starter, two people were vegetarian too so they would not eat the...
