Cold, Sloppy unfresh food! No wonder it was only £8. Service Crap, beer flat and the place is unclean! Toilets stink! Keep away unless you want the suits!

Excellent Value for money, large choice of Chinese, Indian and also some other great products like the Scampi and battered Scallops. Very busy, food replenished quickly and polite staff who kept on top of all the tables. Would recommend

My wife and I ate here last night. More working men's club than Ritz but a good value buffet. Both Chinese and Indian dishes on offer and plenty to chose from. At £8.95 plus drinks it is a pretty cheap meal. Paying before you eat...More
