Came here for a friend's retirement along with about 40 others. The place itself is clean and modern. The food was excellent and the staff were polite, attentive and efficient. Never felt rushed and the whole evening was very relaxed. I will visit again

We then had a choice of any main course... More

The only problem was the waiters attitude when we first arrived however I think this was due... More
