Myself, my family and friends ended up here after our original booking fell through at another local restaurant. Very accommodating at the last minute for a party of 9 people. Food hot and fresh!

A group of 10 arrived at this restaurant after our previous booking at another restaurant fell through. The buffet is excellent value, the selection is great and food is always hot and fresh.

I visited on a Friday evening when a buffet was available, so you could help yourself to a wide variety of dishes. The restaurant was comfortable and the service friendly. It is located in the town centre, minutes away from the bus terminus at Whitesands.

Took my family here during the school holidays. We went on a Sunday night and it was an all you can eat buffet night. There was a great selection, plenty of options for us to choose from, and was a fantastic and friendly service

The staff were so caring that I couldn't not notice it. The food was okay. Very traditional place off the beaten track.
