There are several places to eat on Hill Rd Clevedon, the street where parts on Broadchurch are filmed.

We have been visiting Junior Poon for over 20 years and little changes: good food, a team of people focussed on your experience and Junior always busy in the background.

Last week we went for dry BBQ ribs, sweet and sour pork, Sichuan king prawns and Singapore style vermicelli noodles.

Ribs are just great and not greasy. Share a plate of 4. The best, the noodles, always remind me of Asia.

Sichuan sauce is distinctive and I like it even if a western version.

More than enough food with endless Jasmin tea at £40 for two. We enjoyed ourselves but thought the price a little dear.

(I never buy wines here which are terribly over-priced in the British fashion).
Recommended.

Ate here over weekend. We had early bird menu and it was fine. Staff are aways very pleasant. We just can't believe that this place is still so dire in need of a major internal refurbishment and new toilets. Surely you have made enough money now to do this?

Pleased to hear that you have enjoyed our early evening menu and found our staff pleasant.

A major refurbishment was scheduled for last year after having the plan drawn up by our interior designer. But due to a slight hiccup we have to postpone the internal work. We have started to do some external work that may not be apparent to most including repointing all the stone work at the rear of our building.

Please be patient with us and we hope to proceed with our internal refurbishment as soon as we are able.

Thank you for your support all these years.

Thank you for your review.

Pleased to hear that you have enjoyed the Crispy Duck. With regards to the dish being glutinous; Chinese dishes are varied, some are cooked dry, some have thin runny sauce while others the sauce are thicken with corn flour hence are 'glutinous'. Perhaps, let us know your preference if you do visit again, we will be more than happy to advise which dish you should go for.

Thank you and hope to see you again.

Dined here for a charity night and thoroughly enjoyed food, auction and raffle, raising more than £5k for the soon to be opened Cottage Hospital. Excellent is all respects save for the noise made by local bookie and transport company proprietor - not really, they were so noisy we joined them.

Thank you and everyone who were in the restaurant on the evening (Saturday 16th December 2017) for the generous support towards our fundraising event commemorating our 25 Years of service in Clevedon & surroundings!

Together, we have raised £5430.00 on the evening towards North Somerset Community Hospital, previously fondly known as Clevedon Cottage Hospital.

I am pleased to hear that you have enjoyed your evening with us and had a lot of fun.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you A Joyful & Peaceful Christmas.
Happy holidays!
