We love Lychee Oriental.  Is it the excellent food? The stylish interior? Or, the cheeky smile of Jimmy Lee? We don’t know but we love it!  Jimmy was a contestant on Great British Menu and his menu is a mix of traditional and modern fusion dishes.  Well worth a visit.

Friends Chinese Cafe on High Street is good if you fancy a casual get-together.   Drawing a really diverse crowd of patrons, their lunchtime deal of two courses for £5.50 is a real winner.
