If you are considering holding an event here: get everything in writing, included the hours of service and the end time. Remember if... More

Finally got there as roads have been changed since last that way. Had to shift from our table by the blind as the wind was so strong. However the meals were OK but that they did not have two lamb shanks so had to change my order.

The food (buffet) was both well presented and very tasty!! The staff were amazing and assisted... More
