“Nice food but not enough...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

I came here saturday night with 2 friends, we were greeted and seated straight away. The decor of this restraught is lovely. We had the all you can eat buffet.....the trays were practically empty for all dishes, although they kept restocking them they would only put a small amount of each dish out (which is obviously so they don't have lots of wasted food at the end of the night) which made us feel like we could only have a little bit on our plates as we wanted to make sure there was food left for the other diners. They had a practically empty chocolate fountain with exactly 3 grapes and 4 strawberries to dip in......we all had ice cream with sauce which was very nice! The food was nice although not exactly hot. Not sure if i'd go again which is a shame as i think it has great potential

“Eat in for a change”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013 via mobile

We usually get our takeaways from here and they are always happy,friendly and remember my name. Especially the gentleman and young lady whom work front of house.
We decided to eat in for a change , has the last time we did was before our three yr old was born !
Food was hot, tasty and plentiful.
We opted to pay the extra for table service and the service was great!
It's always a pleasure coming here!

“All you can eat Chinese - what's not to like!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

The all you can eat buffet was quite good value. There's a good choice of hot food, as well as an ice cream machine and a chocolate fountain for those who leave room for dessert!

“Another Cracking Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

Totally excellent again.Staff ,Food well everything really.We have been coming here since it opened and never had a bad meal.If you want a bad meal and poor service then go to the Brewers Fayre.The staff and Management at the Diner really can,t do enough to make the evening a pleasant one.If you want to moan go elsewhere.
