I don't eat take-away type food very often, so going to buffet island is a real treat. Quick service(regarding assigning customers to seats). Once you get seated you are free to choose the food you like and eat until your heart is content (or should i say stomach). Cheap too!

I have been here on a few occasions. Food is always great. Drink service on average is fantastic and very quick! Sometimes a little slow removing plates when busy but if you ask them they move it no questions asked! It is always busy when we go and on occasions you have to wait for a table to become free!...

Very disappointed, most of the food was cold, stale looked like it had been there from lunchtime and quite a few dishes had run out completely, it was only 7.30. Will not be going back. On the plus side, the staff were lovely.

I have been here a few times. Seems a bit worse each time i go. I wish they would arrange so there was an easier way to have access to the buffet without walking into each other with plates in our hands. Don't like the atmosphere in there now.

it has been 3 or 4 years since I was last there, but popped in Saturday evening about 6pm, to be honest, the staff certainly were far more friendly than my last visit. saying that, it did not make up for the cold, congealed food. complete waste of my time and money. it was as if the lunch time food...

We've been here a few times, and every time the food is fantastic plenty of choice and the chef's can cook you something individually for you if you ask, the staff at friendly and helpful. I recommend this place for a visit 👍

Just left the place. Way overrated in my opinion. £15 for me and a 4 year old to eat, and all he had was ice cream! Drinks are expensive. Only highlight were the salt and pepper mushrooms. Doubt I'll go again.

Booked for a birthday meal last week and the service and food were brilliant as always. there were 12 of us in total, we booked in advance, were seated within minutes of arrival, staff were friendly and helpful, although it was very busy plates were cleared promptly and we were never in need of drinks. There is a wide choice... More
