This place was worse than the cuisine at city and that place is bad (got the runs from it), slow service considering all she does is collect plates, the food was so dry you needed the water to eat it.

We went here for dinner, the buffet was all you can eat for £9.99 each. The food was quite nice however there wasn't much choice. The desserts were nice, rice crispy chocolate cakes and the usual chocolate fountain with marshmallows and ice cream.

I've ate here quite a few times and I've always found it good decent food! It's only £6.99 pp and I've found this good value. It's a little cramped inside but the food and price make up for it! I'll be back again and again...More

All you can eat buffets can be really hit and miss and in this instance it was definitely a case of miss. There wasn't a great deal of choice and what there was tasted a bit bland. I didn't feel the staff were very attentive...More
