    The restaurant is an average one paying an over price. We went for the tasting menu, which it has a price of 90£ per person with wine and although the staff was nice and attentive the quality is deficient for the price paid.

    Yes you can. Your photographer will prompt your guests when and where you can do so. Normally confetti is thrown on the steps outside our reception entrance.

    There is only a small selection of draught beers but all are well kept and taste good. From memory the beers on offer include Hoggoblin, Banks and Amstel. They are more expensive than a pub but not too bad for a restaurant.
