First visit to this restaurant - arrived and approached the bar for a drink, the lady serving didn't greet us, just stared straight through us. I ordered our drinks, she never said thankyou or even spoke a word. We stood in the foyer, not knowing what to do next. The "supervisor" lady then came over to the bar and said... More

I have visited here on a number of occasions & the choice is so wide spread so suits all tastes. As much as I like it, the only thing that lets this place down is that the food is never piping hot. The decour also is looking a bit shabby now & could do with a lick of paint.

We came on a Sunday lunch time for the all you can eat buffet on a recommendation from my partners friend. I don't eat huge portions, so all you can eat is wasted on me really. The entrance bit where the bar is was nice enough but the actual restaurant I found to be cramped. The buffet area was swarming... More

Was a bit unsure whether to eat here after reading some of the reviews but can honestly say it was fantastic. All the food was well prepared, well presented and there was plenty to choose from. Good value for money. Will definitely be returning.

Feeling hungry? Have low expectations? A bit skint? Then this place is ideal. Cheap price to eat as much as you want- including the icecream: Our kids loved it. They get to try food they'd probably wouldn't dare to try otherwise. This place was very busy today, therefore the dishes were refilled. If you timed it right some dishes were... More

Having visited this restaurant numerous times I can say that you are always guaranteed value for money, but as it is a buffet restaurant expect it to be very busy and food can run out so be patient or book at a time when many of the visitors will not be in attendance. You will find a good mixture of... More

I went with my family for a meal and found the food bland and some dishes tasteless. Not a lot of choice and the staff never smiled once. We will not be eating there again. Very poor value for money.

Visited early teatime, not a good experience. Food congealed, lukewarm, very slow in re-filling the dishes. Had to wait 10mins for staff to wash cutlery. Price is cheap, but that's not everything. This is one place that we will not be going back to.
