We will be re-opening on Thursday 20th May 2021 and reservations are now being taken online.

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 is featuring in the BBC’s Great British Menu 2021.


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 will be back every weekend afternoon from Saturday 22nd May.


Lu Ban Restaurant was designed with amazing experiences in mind.
