Reviewed 6 September 2013

Have been to this restaurant many times over the last 20 years and it has always been good. However went with friends for a birthday and things not what they used to be. First the place was deserted and rather run down looking so no atmosphere. Also it was freezing cold. The staff brought a couple of calor heaters round but they were useless when the whole room was cold. We had to sit with our coats on for the whole meal.Food was average and as we had the all you can eat buffet it was cooked fresh and quality was OK. Price was reasonable. There are much better Chinese restaurants in the area

Like some others I used to go here quite a few years ago and it was great but sadly not any more. The place looks tired and grubby to me and when we went the food was just dreadfull.

Fried prawn with cold mayo on!! and the main course defied description.....do yourself a favour AVOID AT ALL COSTS !!

The China House do a good buffet where you can take friends or family and you sit at your table and for a fixed price you can order anything off the menu and they will bring it to you. Great value.

The entrance is dull and dingy - the stair carpets could do with a good clean! Greeted by a half-enpty fish pool - minus any fish - on the left and a mini storage area on the right. The restaurant itself looked pleasing but the heating had broken so it was chilly. Waited an age after being seated before anyone came to take our drinks order, in the fact the diners at the next table had drinks and orderer food before we even saw the waiter. The food when it came was hot and tasty - however we were a main course missing. As the waiter had returned to check how spicy we wanted this, we assumed it would come out last. Eventually I had to go to the bar to ask the waiter for this dish. My poor husband had to tuck into mushrooms and beansprouts so that he ate with us, and then was left eating his main alone after we had all finished. No apology made at all. I had ordered a dry white wine, which wasn't very dry but I opted not to change this as I thought it would improve when drunk with food. Only it didn't - and was extremely expensive at just shy of £6. Sad to say, the China House, with its previous good reputation, has gone right down hill. Certainly we won't be returning - there are more than enough decent restaurants around, they need to up their game.
