Regularly visit Walker Massage Therapy for a variety of services. Found all the girls to be very welcoming and friendly who know their products and services well.

Went here as a family treat. We were shown to a table almost immediately. Large selection of choices on the menu, at reasonable prices and caters for most tastes, not just fish. We didn't feel rushed and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The food was well presented and more than ample in portion size. We will definitely be going back.

Buffet lunch excellent value, well presented and a good choice for most folk.Starters of soup and other light bites. Fish meat and veggie, for main course, and a choice of sweets, including ice cream. Alert support staff and comfortable seating. Main meals outwith lunch time have a reduced size and cost menu for Pensioners. With an excellent table service. Children welcome and well catered for. Great place to dine. Norman
