Lovely food, served by very friendly staff, the restaurant lacked a bit of character, because it's a big place it didn't have that cosy feel, but great value

Party of 4 arrived at 10.15pm (sign showed closing time 11pm). As we walked through door saw around 4 customers but waiter ran to say "take away only"...! Not given any chance to explain that we only wanted a main course each and would have been finished by closing time. Pity really, thought they would have liked the business during... More

We were staying in Woodstock and ordered a takeaway from hear. We ordered it and were told it would be ready in twenty minutes. When I got there it was on a table ready for me good service. The food itself was very nice apart from the ribs which didn't have a lot of flavour or meat on. All in... More

For several years we have come to the Sunday Buffet always at 1.00pm. Today we rang to book before arriving, the person on the phone said they shut at 2.30pm so we should come earlier which we could not do. However, they took the booking. We arrived at 1.00pm. It took them 15mins to take our drinks order and our... More

Went for Sunday lunch. Very poor service and bland tasting food. absolutely no ambience. Bare tables with no cloths or condiments. Although it is a local restaurant we will not go there again

We have been here a few times to celebrate family meals, mainly eating around 6- 6.30 because of the children. The restaurant has usually been quite empty, so cannot comment on atmosphere. Each time we have asked for the feast, it is mainly left up to the chief, however you can ask for your favorites to be included. Each time... More

Had a lovely meal here on New Year's Eve - perfect for a family of four. We had mixed appetisers to begin, followed by duck then a couple of mains and noodles. All reasonably cooked - and no night long thirst afterwards! They even packed up the leftovers for us to take away. Restaurant was busy while we were there... More

It's not much to look at from outside but it's authentic inside with the pond and little bridge to the back of the restaurant. Staff were incredible and went out of their way for you. Being vegetarian sometimes it seems a struggle to find decent food but they really out did themselves. We had a set priced meal chefs choice... More

Always great food and excellent value for money. We always have the 'leave it to us feast' the price does not appear to have gone up in years. Still get big portions and very tasty. Never had any duck and plum sauce or plain fried noodles better any where else. So good. Take aways are just as good and big... More
