I try to go every couple of months, as the whole family look forward to it. The buffet menu is worth every penny and the fact it’s cooked to order is quality. I would whole heartedly recommend you try it.

Visited here with friends whilst working in the area. Although quiet the staff were on hand to assist. Food was hot and freshly made and portion sizes were good. Overall a good meal was had by all.

Went for a meal the other day. Food and service was good but let down by paper table cloth and freezing temperature inside .could be so much better. I would recommend using the takeaway rather than the restaurant
