Visited with family and young children for a weekend dinner. The setting is small and basic, in need of a little love and definitely a new carpet! Good value food, all you can eat, no puddings, for £15.95. Drinks though were small bottles and extremely expensive. Wine was averagely priced. The starters are mostly deep friend, as very greasy, I'd... More

Visited with friends who live locally and had booked Saturday evening. Very busy but super efficient service and a variety of well priced and tasty meals. This is buffet style eating but being served at your table creates much more of a pleasant atmosphere and avoids the poor experience everything in large silver pans with hot lights on top. A...

We stumbled upon this restaurant by luck as we were going to see Jimmy Carr at the Winter Gardens as it is only a 5-10 minute walk away.

Wonderful evening, glorious menu choice and had out fill. In fact the starters filled us up so did not venture much further. Quality of food first class, staff very efficient, very attentive and very clean establishment. Have been before. Thought the pricing very reasonable. Certainly use again.

Me and my husband had a rare night out and decided to eat at TY8 as we remembered the crispy duck the last time we were there. I have to say the service and the food is the best around by far for value for money. The soups are amazing and the flavours are fab. Great value for money.

This place doesn't look much from the outside but inside is clean and well presented. It is an eat as much as you like restaurant but each course is cooked up fresh for you. I have been here before and the food is consistently good. The serving staff are efficient and friendly.
