A special mention to Geoff, Sue, Andrew, Steve and Chef Nigel. The event was a Sunday lunch for 90 people, the bar and lounge is a great place... More

We have now had the pleasure of visiting this establishment with our family and friends on numerous memorable occasions. If I lived closer I would be a regular - as our friends here are fortunate to be. Even when serving 100 meals, as was done at our event this week, each meal is served hot and perfectly cooked.

Never had a bad time. Work Christmas parties are just the best. Good food. Plenty of party games to play in teams and a DJ to complete the night
