Visited on 16th Feb to find there was only a limited set menu available. No veggie or fish options. However on request they did do us a selection of veggie plates which were all tasty enough. Plenty of food, all very tasty and hot. Service was quick, friendly. We were the only ones in the restaurant which made it a... More

I attended this restaurant on a works do in January On the plus side, you can take your own drink so if you want to make the night a bit cheaper you can, think there's a corkage charge but if you are big drinkers this will easily pay for itself. The starters came pretty quickly after ordering which was great... More

Saturday night treat... went to Laurel Inn. Tried out the 'All you could eat' menu and couldn't fault it. Sometimes a wait between courses, as quite busy, so was fresh and hot when arrived which was good. Excellent portion size too. Overall a good experience and will definitely go back when I want a Chinese!

Saturday is family treat night and we all decided It was time for a Chinese. We usually use China Town in Leek but decided to give the Laurel Inn a try. We ordered the food to be told the delivery time was 45minutes. This is totally understandable as it is a Saturday night and will be very busy. However, after... More

The food here is excellent, great choice on the menu , quality ingredients and good size portions ohh and served pipping hot! The service we experienced as a family was excellent too.The only downside for me was it was a little cool in the restaurant and cold upstairs, but overall highly recommended - you will not be disappointed!
