Loved the delicious meats...and the buffet was quirky and tasty. The servers were very friendly and we had great service (at one point tho, i thought i was gonna need my nurse skills when a meat server tripped over someones handbag and almost fell sharp knife first into my friend...thankfully regained balance in time...but it did put me on edge...

When I pay £26 for a main meal I am expecting some level of quality. The meat that we got was either burned to a crisp or bland or salty - I suppose that they are all "flavours" but not ones that you want to pay for. Most things just tasted bland and had very little flavour to them -... More

Went with a large group of friends and reservation booked in advance. Therefore surprised they didn't have the full wine menu to choose from. When the wines we initially picked ran out (after only a few bottles) we were offered only very expensive alternatives. Poor choice of food offered in salad bar. Poor selection of fatty and tasteless meat. Bill... More

Really disappointed when we visited yesterday.Service bad apart from one young male waiter,meats dry or fatty ,buffet was just terrible the only thing that looked appealing was the bread,rice (cold) and mashed potatoes (lumpy) What a shame as it used to be a family favourite of ours .

We visited on a Friday evening with friends. From the beginning to end the experience was great. Food, service and atmosphere were top notch. Great value too. Will definitely recommend to friends and hope to return ourselves soon.

Feel like the place has went down hill. Meat is cheap fatty and it got to the point most of it tasted the same and over salted. Cheap trick to get you to buy more drink or to try hide the fact it's cheep meat. Best thing about meal was the potatoes and drinks. I liked this place in the... More

Came here for lunch for a birthday treat for my son as he had been before and loved it. Got seated fairly quickly, as it didn't look too busy. Took our drink order being a diabetic I ordered a diet lemonade and lime, told no diet lemonade! Ok. Went to salad/pasta bar which was ok. Then we waited and waited... More
