Not sure what the negative reviews are for. First time here and would happily go back. A la carte all you can eat means fresh hot food at your table, lovely food and great service. Building is run down hence only the 4 stars.

We went here after it had been recommended. Oh dear. Walking in, it smelled damp and foisty. We went into what had been the bar, and were ushered into what I presume was the old 'snug', which was dark, oppressive and smelled like dried out beermats. We chose the food. The starters looked and tasted like a party platter from... More

What can I say but avoid this place if you like good Chinese food. I have never eaten such bland tasteless and lukewarm so called Chinese food. As I stood at the bar and asked fro my bill, as we couldn't leave quick enough the Manageress asked why I wanted my bill, I explained the problems with the food she... More

Wok inn years ago used to be spot on. Visited before Christmas with my husband, Mam and step dad. There was a big party of around 12 people in and the staff seemed to be more interested in serving them and not us, service was so slow and they kept bringing us wrong orders. Food was ok but I've been... More

Very good value and prices were not increased over the Christmas holidays. We visited New Years Eve, they were very busy and our orders did get a little muddled but it didn't matter, the food was very good, we have been many times.

The meal was served quickly , food was hot and fresh although I'd say it wasn't the best Chinese food I have tasted.

Food was ok but wasn't the best Chinese I've had. I have been before but this time I was really disappointed. I felt like I was being rushed to eat my food. Whilst I was still eating the waitress was clearing away the plates why couldn't she of waited till we finished our meal then come over and take them... More

Myself and my family have been going to the Wok for years and the food is always wonderful, however each time we visit the owner is becoming more rude. We recently went for my parents Diamond Anniversary, the table was booked well in advance and we were greeted with two tables of 8 and we had previously visited with the... More

This place is brilliant I told the staff I would leave a review on here as it is a little goldmine . The lady that served us was brilliant with the children and never stopped all night. The food is delicious great customer service !
