Reviewed 15 December 2011

There was a little more in the past. But it is still one of the best around - with such a variety of selections. Saturday 7 Sunday the selections are better than during the week.

We ate at "The Place" restaurant on a Friday night, we didn't have a booking but that wasn't a problem. We were greeted at the door and were given a choice of the buffet menu or the a la carte. We chose the buffet menu because the food looked fantastic.

There was so much to choose from at the salad bar, all the vegetables and pastas were fresh, colourful and very tasty.

It was hard to choose from the mains because both the salmon and the lamb cutlets looked soooo nice, not to mention the roast beef and Yorkshire puddings. In the end I chose the lamb which was cooked to perfection, it just fell apart when I cut into it.

Desserts included a whole manor of pastries, cakes and fresh fruit salad - something for everyone.

I could have eaten everything on the buffet if my stomach would have let me and all for the very nice price of £24!

After our meal, we went into the bar to listen to the entertainment so our drinks were brought through from the restaurant.

We had a great evening and will be going to "The Place" again next time we're in London
