Mmm... food was average. Cost £50 for us both for 1 main each, rice each and 1/4 of a duck for starter! Coke and pint of beer.... I don't think that's good value for money.... but I guess the company made it all more enjoyable.

Good choice of dishes on the menu which were reasonably priced. The food was really tasty and courses served at a decent pace, didn't have to wait long but didn't feel rushed either. Staff were attentive but not overbearing. Overall a very enjoyable experience and...More
