Although the restaurant operates on a buffet basis, the quality of choice and presentation are far above the "typical" buffet. The choice of starters is impressive with seafood, cold meats and an excellent salad selection. Likewise a varied and in most cases home made selection...More

The quality of the food is excellent, but could be viewed as quite expensive. To their credit the Old Tollgate do offer vouchers. The accommodation there is good too

Plenty of choice, plentiful portions and plenty of helpful staff. Generally an English menu but with a European/Asian influence - very good! Clean and pleasant restaurant eating area.
