Been to the wok in many times food is very good but the service lets it down, waited for long periods inbetween courses which resulted in us only having one course.We paid the bill at the bar and left we will not return.only two staff on the floor who were run off their feet.

Having visited The Wok Inn on a number of occasions, I have always been satisfied with both food and service however, on this occasion the level of service dropped significantly. The waitress was not very attentive and we had to get up and go find the waitress to order more food and drinks, the chips were cold, water was served... More

We have a 2 year old daughter who required a high chair but they didn't have any and no attempt was made to help us in any way so we walked out . They expected us to feed our daughter from our lap but... More

Not sure what the negative reviews are for. First time here and would happily go back. A la carte all you can eat means fresh hot food at your table, lovely food and great service. Building is run down hence only the 4 stars.

We went here after it had been recommended. Oh dear. Walking in, it smelled damp and foisty. We went into what had been the bar, and were ushered into what I presume was the old 'snug', which was dark, oppressive and smelled like dried out beermats. We chose the food. The starters looked and tasted like a party platter from... More

What can I say but avoid this place if you like good Chinese food. I have never eaten such bland tasteless and lukewarm so called Chinese food. As I stood at the bar and asked fro my bill, as we couldn't leave quick enough the Manageress asked why I wanted my bill, I explained the problems with the food she... More

Wok inn years ago used to be spot on. Visited before Christmas with my husband, Mam and step dad. There was a big party of around 12 people in and the staff seemed to be more interested in serving them and not us, service was so slow and they kept bringing us wrong orders. Food was ok but I've been... More

Very good value and prices were not increased over the Christmas holidays. We visited New Years Eve, they were very busy and our orders did get a little muddled but it didn't matter, the food was very good, we have been many times.

The meal was served quickly , food was hot and fresh although I'd say it wasn't the best Chinese food I have tasted.
