Nice food and friendly service. The buffet was topped up reguarly and resturant kept clean and tidy. Really good price and bottomless sodas to boot. Will come back.

Great selection of starters, main course and deserts. All very tasty, no restriction on how much you eat so for £11-95 each great value. Deserts included fruit, ice cream, jelly, Eton mess, cake and gateaux.

Who knows....I wish the team at Medway council actually read the reviews on here and acted on them. This really is a dirty filthy place.
