Went there quite often when it was "The Bull", been once since it became a Chinese restaurant and was not overly impressed. To be fair that was quite a long time ago so could be better now.

Went on a Friday night with another couple. Couldn't fault the food. Lacked atmosphere as huge place with only a few people in. Service wasn't great though down to communication issues rather than lack of willingness. Overall enjoyable. Probably a bit expensive for the quality.

This was our first visit to this restaurant (a former pub) and we'll be going back again. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was very good - but the service, especially the first course, could have been quicker.

The restaurant was nicely decorated and roomy. We were served a very pleasant young waiter who responded to all our requests. The courses were delivered in a timely manner and all the food was tasty and well presented.

This has become my reliable Chinese take away. Popped in here on the way home from a long weekend away at a conference and ordered a few dishes to take home. Once finished my belly was satisfied.

I think its 12 on a Sunday and they had a special fixed price menu option today too if they are still offering that.
