Definitely worth a visit!!

Another great night from start to finish. Great food great service and as always great company. I now spent NYE in the Primrose and it just keeps getting better each year. Would recommend anyone to pay it a visit for a meal or just a drink.

Its been a while since our last visit, we returned due to the standard of the food and service from our previous visits. We were not disappointed, good food and service with a reasonable price, that's why we go back to The Primrose.
