Yes, I was willing to give this restaurant a try but looking inside the doorway at all the amusement machines - like a games arcade, it put me off no end so I went else where. What business are they in? Is the food so ordinary the activities have to make up for it?

Food was terrible. No selection and either overcooked chips or undercooked chicken drumsticks. Advise to stay away.

Good Selection of food with very attentive staff. The food has definitely improved and were very happy with our last visit. Something that we would like to see come back is the steaks as this was always one of our favourites. The food has improved and was delicious.

Food is below average, especially for how much you pay now (prices have gone up since I last went which was years ago), I know it's a buffet restaurant but the selection to choose from is disappointing. I'd rather go to McDonalds to be honest.

Tiny wee cubes of dessert choices Birthday cake had been ordered a week in advance and yet not ready on the night and was still frozen on cutting. I was advised but one of our party not... More
