The decor is the same as when I first visited 15-20 years ago but the food is first class. Service is ok and the staff are very friendly. All you can eat and a few beers £25 per head good value if you have a good appetite!

Visited the new water margin last weekend, having not been for over 20 years. The décor has not really changed that much which some may say is a bad thing, however it reminded me of fond memories.
There were 3 of us, my daughter had not been before so we chose the all you can eat buffet. We were looked after by a very pleasant server who explained the dishes to us in detail.
The food when it arrived was freshly cooked and hot, the duck appeared to by a little dry, however with the accompanying plum sauce, spring onions and cucumber and the wafer thin raps it was not really that noticeable.

We were given plenty of time during each course which was very refreshing as at previous restaurants the staff appeared to want to rush us through our meal. The overall meal was very good except that there appeared to be a lot of salt used, however, this may be down to the fact that myself and my wife try to avoid using excessive amounts of salt whilst cooking so this my explain the reasons for this.
I would very much recommend going as we, as a family said that we would go again. The offer of fresh fruit after our meal was a delightful treat, and the fact that there is a desert menu ( just ask ) was great.

Just one small point is the parking, we booked for a 7.30pm sitting and were unable to get in the car park so we had to park on the lower end of Burton road.

As always. This place does not disappoint me.
Love the food and the service. You really can't fault it.
The squid is to die for.
Give it a try if you didn't like it in the past.
