The most disgusting Chinese I’ve ever had made me feel sick, would rather go Asda and get a Chinese box meal it tastes better and an 8th of the price... will not be going back...

Ken and Debbie are always welcoming and offer a super welcome. The menu is always tantalising and Ken will adapt any dish to suit your preferences. Never had a bad dish. Always gorgeous. Can’t wait to go back.

It is the place one can indulge in good food and drinks in the comfort of a luxurious and cosy atmosphere. Very impressed with the great hospitality and friendliness of the owner couple and their staff.

The food is actually very good here and the family work hard to offer a friendly and efficient service. The decor is quirky (no need to dress up) but that is part of its charm. We have eaten here many times over many years and...More

Food is generally ok and the service is always with a smile but it's massively over priced. £85 for two adults and two young children, all of whom walked out still hungry. Receipts all done in Chinese so hard to know what you're being charged...More
