A very good chinese that bucks the trend of pile it high buffet style.
A vast menu to choose from that is freshly cooked to order or can even be tailored to meet your needs as I ordered a sizzling black bean which wasn't on the menu.

The service at Springwater is superb. I have been with a large party and as a family of 3, the speed your food arrives is the same.
The food is really good (we have the eat as much as you like menu) and there is a good choice with something for everyone.
They bring clean plates with every new course and they're hot, a must for me.
Can't fault it and am going again on Friday with the girls :o)

I like Chinese food, but it is never my first choice as I rarely find a Chinese restaurant that excels beyond any other. This one was another of those where the food was good, but no better than any other you might go to. We arrived early because we had a two year old with us and he had to get home to bed. There was plenty of parking outside. There was a prominent sign at the door about 'controlling' your children which was not exactly welcoming to families, but maybe necessary in this area I don't know. We were the only ones there to start with, but soon it started to fill up with a couple of large parties as well as a few couples. It was my stepson's birthday and he chose the venue. We ate from the 'all you can eat' menu. This is a £17.50 per head plus drinks (no desserts included although these can be ordered separately). They did not charge anything extra for the toddler to eat and they provided a highchair. There were quite a few rules with this menu e.g. you can only have four starters or mains at a time (and one of the four mains is rice, noodles or chips), you cannot go back to starters once you are on to mains and you can only order more of anything once you have eaten what you have on the table. This was a bit off-putting, but in practice it did not affect anything as we had everything we could have wanted anyway. The food was served on to a revolving central platter so we could share the dishes easily. The service was exceptionally attentive, even over-attentive, but the staff were pleasant with it. The restaurant was decorated fairly typically and there was a water feature with live fish in it. The music varied from authentic Chinese to some kind of electric organ music so not great. The total bill was £100 for 4 adults and 1 toddler so quite expensive for what is was.

The food in here is just to die for. Absolutely love a trip to Springwater. Never usually make it to mains after ive had multiple rounds of starters.

The service is fast and the food is phenomenal. What more could you want?

The food here is out of this world. Loved the all you could eat menu. It was great to be able to have a sit down all you can eat instead of buffet style. Great service, didn't feel rushed. Slightly higher price than some places, but well worth it. Can't wait to again!
