Ordered superb Chinese food for collection (delivery was closed) and due to a mixup I wasn't able to pick it up before they closed. The staff working that night drove it to us himself. Excellent service that goes way beyond the call of duty! Definitely deserves a promotion!

The Shanghai Brasserie is a great restaurant with great food. The restaurant is attached to the Castle Inn and has been around for a few years. The staff are friendly and the service is not hurried so you do not feel as if you are in a production line. The decor has changed but with an old building you should... More

Staff , although helpful, were wearing jeans and black shirts not dressed for a Chinese restaurant experience . Where have the Chinese girls gone ? Food average but plates and bowls were cold . I asked at the end... More

Because it was a Groupon offer we were directed to the bar area (not the restaurant) which was just like an old fashioned pub with no atmosphere and not in the slightest like a Chinese restaurant. Although very hot and served in good time, the starter looked pre frozen and out of a packet. I then had chicken curry, the... More

We went here for lunch on a Friday. The staff member looked as if she just got out of bed. We were lead to the bar area which was extremely filthy. I could've just walked out then! Food was ok. But the food came out very quickly, so it seemed like it was pre made. Real shame! As the pub... More
