Hi Kev and Susan, Thanks for your feedback. We agree with you are are changing the doors open time to 6.30. It just takes a will for the change to happen since tickets are bought so far in advance.

Very relaxed atmosphere. Great food and drinks available. Loved every carriage as they all had different styles with the music.

Fantastic evening. Friendly staff and patrons. Very well managed and controlled. Food wonderful. Only criticism is the high price of liquor in a captured market. BYO not allowed so have to pay or go thirsty
