We are open 
and look forward to seeing you soon.

Our cuisine is inspired by the Chinese region of Tianjin. In China the name Lu Ban is associated with invention and creativity, and dates back to 504-444 BC when Lu Ban, revered as a Chinese Deity, was a master of craft, invention and innovation.

Executive Chef Dave J Critchley and his team develop Lu Ban dishes with an inventive culinary passion, respectful of Chinese food culture and traditions.

Dave J Critchley was featured on the BBC’s Great British Menu 2021.
You can join Dave at Lu Ban on Thursday 24th June to experience his Great British Menu.



Our stunning restaurant menus offer a range of small and large plate dishes, or you may choose to opt for a banquet menu to enjoy a wide selection of flavours. A full wine, beer and cocktail list is available to accompany your dining experience.

Our famous bottomless brunch is back every weekend too, and we have a range of events and offers that might take your fancy.
