Now a Whacky Warehouse, which is great for the kids but can get a bit too busy now for it's own good.

The queues at the bar can get a bit stressful, and the menu seems to run out quite quickly so the choice of dishes rapidly decreases.

Get there early, grab a table and enough drinks, get your order. Outside playing area as well so again good for the children to burn off some energy. Atmosphere is like a party when it is full.

Still good value for food, but as I said get there ealier rather than later for a good choice, otherwise it will be a burger or a burger!

Huge Chinese restaurant, filled with a mixture of large round tables and smaller square settings so very accomodating for any size of group. A glass atrium in the centre allows plenty of natural light in which is a nice touch.

Typical menu offering nothing really different to any other Chinese, good selection of fixed menus from £15 p/h for those who can't make up their minds.

Very clean seating area though the rear of the restauarant looks a bit dubious (it is where I park usually and turned me off a bit).

The only time it gets busy is on match days (when you can't park) or whe they have coach loadsof Chinese tourist come along, so you can be left feeling a bit exposed.

Very polite and helpful waiting staff, and very busy in the take-away department.

Would recommend this one over the near-by Alisan for value and nicer service.

One of the few late-night pharmacys in the area so if you need a late prescription or anything else from a chemist then this is the place to go.
Vey knowledgable staff with good stock level of everything.

Not too helpful, I should have know it when I arrived and realised they do not have disability access to their shop The previous comment is false and is not my experience, although they can usually get it in the next day. Prescriptions are often late, undelivered, or mistaken. ,above comment is false and is not my experience, although they can usually get it in the next day.

The Crown Beefeater

Not part of the Beefeater group now but the "Sizzling Pubs" group.

This pub has been refurbished countless times in the past (we have been going for the past 15 years) but this is by far the best makeover both iinlayout and most importantly food! Hence this review!!

Easy access from the A40 (5 mins) and a big car park.

Off the beaten track. Very family friendly, nice little beer garden, smoking shelter, seating and grounds.

Informal and relaxed layout inside with some nice quiet tables.

Good range of beers and very reasonable wines.
We have been there a good few times now and cannot believe the value for money.

A really succulent 16oz steak cooked how you like it (perfectly) for under a tenner, and I do not mean £9.99, how does £8.19 sound?!!!

Arrives on the table on a sizzling tray with the right sized portion of chips.

Super choice of other dishes of course chicken, fish, smaller steaks, pies, sandwiches, jacket pots, a good choice of non-meat dishes and of course plenty of meals for the children! main dishes start at just over £4, so you really cannot go wrong! Something for everyone between 3 and 103.

Service is friendly and with a smile. It really is the best value for miles around.

Only trouble is, we never have much room left for a sweet each but we manage to share one!!

Check out their menu on the web and see for yourself!

I have known this family since they had an old stall in front of the (now demolished) Century Tavern. They are very welcoming, very helpful, very obliging and work long hard hours. Not the cheapest but good consistant quality. Can deliver anywhere to which is handy.
They also offer garden services as well so worth a call if you need something doing in the garden.

Very helpful, very capable and very knowledgable.
They installed a non-wired system in our house and were clean, tidy and on time. Gave us options to choose from and nothing was too much bother (rare nowadays).
Great for getting anything from a key cut to a house safe, alarm system or padlock for you back gate. Support the locals!!

I know it is called the Sports Bar but it should and could be a lot lot better than it is. by that, I mean it should cater for the locals a lot more rather than just depend upon the crowds when there is a game on at the stadium.
Always looks as if the cleaners are due to arrive, not the friendliest of staff,and for the size of the place should have a lot more seating than it has. A scabby of leather suite in the front, some bar stools and at the back some "comfy" chairs that should have been thrown out yonks ago. Sorry Guys, but you should and could do a lot better. Not the sort of place you would pop into for a pint on the way home, which is what it should be.

Dragon King Oriental Buffet
London | Chinese Restaurants
DK not BK!!

By far, the best place to eat in the Cinema complex!
Good value buffet with very swift service. Worth booking in advance for groups of 6 or more.
Mussels and shrimps are worth the visit just for themselves. Obviously the normal duck, sweet n' sour, chicken, pork and satay dishes etc but due to the place being so busy everything is cooked fresh and replenished rather quickly!
Drinks can be a bit pricey but they have to make their money somewhere, especially when my family turn up!!
Very attentive service though the lady on the door can be a bit stuffy sometimes.
Toilets let the place down like most places it seems which is unecessary in this day and age.
Very "Chairman Mao" decor, red wall, red paper lamps, traditional polished wood tables and chairs but overall a good value, very, very popular venue that we all go to without even thinking of going to the cinema! Which says a lot.
