Sunday lunch buffet @ Clipper Lounge

Before I came I found there was an online menu on what they had for the buffet, although there is a note saying *Please note that all buffet items are subject to change due to availability* I thought it would be fun to see what items could be found and what were not there.
It was easy to book a table at late notice however they needed credit card confirmation.

Overall the food was ok, but some of the items I could not find.
My favourites were the oysters, green tomatoes
