Visited this venue on the 21st July for the first time. Lovely setting. Artists on the show were, Davis Bowie, Lady Gaga, Robbi Williams and Neil Diamond. They were all fantastic but Lady Gaga stole the show. Her Performance was outstanding and the change of outfits were something else. Must not forget the dancers, they were superb and worked really...

Witnessed a show called 'Glamatic's 70s and 80s, the show was two hours with a short break in the middle, very good and very proffesional. Well worth a visit.

This place had amazing food. Steaks burgers, all sorts. I had the spicy cheeseburger with fries. Plate was massive. Well impressed. Bit of a wait for the food but well worth it and obviously freshly cooked. Hence the wait. Staff friendly. Spicy sauce on my burger was amazing. Hot but wow!!
