We have visited twice for the Charlie and the chocolate factory tea and it's a wonderful experience. The staff here and among the best I have ever experienced. No child would be made to feel unwelcome here, and adults and children alike will delight in the food and the Smokin Charlie cocktails are not to be missed.

We booked this as a treat for my younger sisters 16th Birthday and was swayed by the whole Charlie & the Chocolate Factory theme. Overall we had a lovely time it just seemed to be lacking something and upon leaving we all said “atmosphere”. The hotel is plush, modern and in a nice location and we couldn’t fault the staff...
