Went to the Golden Dragon who let her NBA family holiday. When we enquired about a table we were told that: "Upstairs was too cold" and, "That all other tables were too small" Whilst you could think this was helpful there was only two other couples in the restaurant. Cannot comment on the food.

We ate here after a wedding in the town. We did arrive later in the evening near to closing time, and were told only main courses, which was fine. The dishes arrived within five minutes of ordering, and felt pressured to finish and leave. The food was average, one of the dishes beef with chilli and garlic, tasted very synthetic.... More
