On Sunday 25th January we had lunch on the Tramcar Restaurant with our relations from Malta. It was the best outing we had as the view was great and the meals were absolutely delicious. The drinks kept flowing and we had a great time. We will certainly recommend the journey and will be back again. Thank you to our children... More

Chef Gary did the impossible and served me a fillet steak well done - any number of restaurant chefs have told me this is impossible (or perhaps they just couldn't be bothered to take the care).
