Managed to time this meal just right. We got the 4 of us seated no problem at all. I did notice on our way out that there was a queue out the door so perhaps an earlier lunch break is needed, which is what we did!

Waitress was lovely. You pay at the start which is a little odd, but it works as you can just leave straight away. Our youngest is 2 and she said that he was free...bonus! You can also get a discount if you have an annual pass (which we didn't) It is an all you can eat pizza/pasta/salad buffet and refillable drinks. Perfect for hungry kids. Plenty of pizza choice and these were restocked quickly. Lovely garlic bread. Salad was good too. There are only 2 types of pasta, mac and cheese and a bolognese type one.

The toilets are gross though. They really need a revamp. There are only 2 and 1 of those is a disabled loo. Just grubby. Lets it down.

Expect long queues at times. Food is what you'd expect from a "3 for £10" kind of pizza place. The pasta is the highlight, especially the mac & cheese.

Also try the chef's special pizza for something different. It was Hot Dog & pineapple pizza for us.

Just like pizza hut buffet. The food was good, lots to choose from and very fast service. We were in a party of 6 and we all enjoyed it. Very satisfying and very good value. If you have merlin passes you get discount so well worth a visit.

By far the best value for money place to eat at Alton Towers. Great fresh pizza and pasta been constantly served and the salad bars where fresh, tidy and well stocked up.

The place was clean and the staff where great.

Probably the best pizza buffet I've been to.
