I had my usual good lunch today 20.Jan 2017. On my way in I noticed a new price list (see photograph) but no mention of the £6 offer to pensioners. This is slightly strange. I **guess* it is because people are abusing the system by claiming that they are seniors. It now seems that the staff will make their own... More

Went here for my birthday meal! The restaurant was cold the entire time we were there. The plates were stone cold causing any food to go cold instantly. It took 25 mins after we were shown to our seats before we asked about getting drinks as no one served us! The food was substandard and just about warm. Drinks were... More

I was very impressed with this restaurant for what we wanted for just cheap quick eats and the staff were nice and would return when in town again.

The place now lacks that finesse. We went here on Friday the 13th 2017 at 7.30pm. The food on display was well past its display time. Looking old and tired. The vegetarian choices are abysmal. To make matters worse, the vegetarian food is served adjacent to other meat dishes resulting in frequent use of meat serving spoons in the vegetarian... More

Not been here for six months , and returned Sunday lunch time just after opening time, quality of food is poor and cold , when we left the place it was still quiet, only seem to be tourist , maybe the locals have realised not worth bothering with. The price has risen to £13.99 per person , not worth the... More

The Chinese dishes are horrible. Cold, dry and tasteless. The curry dishes are ok. Pizza was ok but not served very hot. The manager was rude, as we were there late (sat down at 9pm) by 9.45pm he was basically pushing us out the door! Do not waste your time.

Not been to this place in over a year and things have definitely changed for the worst! Food quality lowered and most things were cold! Limited availability compared to the past experience, making it the worst buffet so far! The worst part was the false food description, it clearly stated "crab claws" which turned out to be chicken as I... More

The place at 12.15pm today was about 25% full. The choice of food was ok and it was fairly well presented however it was cold (as was the place itself). The pricing is competitive but if only the food were hot enough it would represent good value for money!

Pretty cheap on weekday lunchtimes, especially if your party consists mostly of OAPs and young children. The variety of food available is very diverse. The quality isn't always 100% but given the number of dishes available, it doesn't really matter if the odd one isn't up to scratch. My only real criticism is that the elevator was out of action...
