We invaded The Crescent for a 65th birthday party. Nothing was too much trouble. They even organized the music for the dancing. Very reasonable pricing too. Close to the High Street with shops, cinema, restaurants and clubs.

There was plenty of fresh fruit for breakfast but the cooked breakfast was disappointing, the sausage was dull, clearly a 'value' variety, scrambled egg was microwaved, dry and without seasoning and the only coffee available was instant! A coffee... More
