“Decent Buffet”
Review of The Round House

We come here every few months as its a decent Chinese buffet. The staff are pleasant, the food quality is good and the variety is resonable. All could be better and it doesnt compare to chinese buffets in somewhere like Manchester but its a nice location and compared to other places in the town, its quite good. The starter selection is particularly good and the desserts (which are included but have to be ordered) are also very nice. Personally, I would recommend the Round House if you just fancy a Chinese buffet, not for a special night out.

i went here with a friend on a monday evening
the dishes were mostly empty and were not replenished certainly not a buffet
the soup was ok
the rest of it was battered oddities and a few other dishes
the fish tank probably contained some fish although i couldnt see them as it was covered in algae
the fish werent for eating by the way although they would have filled the empty buffet
the next day i was sat on the loo praying for a lump as i was very ill dont know if it was down to their "food " or not ,but it was the only thing i had eaten (? )
i wouldnt recommend it- go elsewhere
it was the first time i had been over to the roundhouse -and the last.

Recently visited the Roundhouse with family - we went at 6pm to take advantage of the early offer of £10.90 per head, which is until 7pm. We had finished eating before 7, but ordered another round of drinks. These were forgotten about by the waitress, and it was a good 20 minutes until they arrived. When the time came to pay the bill, we were abruptly told that because we had been in the sat in the restaurant after 7pm, we were charged £13.90 per head - even though we had finished eating before this. I found this ridiculous, especially after we had given them further trade in another drinks order.

We had previously visited for restaurant meals and takeaways quite frequently, and have no complaints about the quality of food - but following this they have certainly lost our custom. If anyone does want to go for the early offer, just make sure you're out the door before 7.

Myself, my 6yr son & best friend arrived for the buffet at 6.30, shown to our table straight away & were asked for our drinks order...went up several times to the buffet area & whilst most items were fully stocked, what was running low was quickly replenished & available again to eat. Food lovely & plenty of choice both for starters & main courses. Just under £50 for the three of us, including 3 alcoholic drinks, lovely food, lovely staff & lovely night.

Very ill after the last visit due to a dodgy prawn!!!
The buffet is expensive considering the quality of the food. The soup was cold and the buffet was not much better - warm instead of hot like it should be. The selection of puddings is also poor. Also a very cold building to sit in.
