I've been a diner at the Roundhouse for as long as I can remember and in it's hey day it was the busiest and best Chinese buffet in town. Now it's not worth the drive over the bridge. The building is cold, drab and in need of a make over. The fact the restaurant barely has half a dozen customers... More

We visited the round house last week, the beer from the pump was flat and had to be sent back. Although the buffet food was nice there was not a lot of each choice, it seemed like things weren't replenished once they were getting low. Also the waitress started collecting everyone's plates whilst people were still eating!

This restaurant, located on Walney Island was special for its location and architecture. It is rather out-of-the-way. We found it worth the drive from Barrow.

Our favourite restaurant for family celebrations. Plenty of choice to suit all tastes. It provides many courses if desired-soup, starters, crispy duck pancakes, main meals, fruit and banana fritters. The house wine was reasonable and very pleasant. The restaurant provides lovely views of the sea.

I went with my grandparents and a wonderful time. The staff were really friendly and looked after my grandparents. The food was hot and delicious and the banana fritter to end was great.
