we were at a wedding on 18th may this year, and with the cost and description my initial picture in my head was sadly not what I saw on arrival.

bearing in mind the price and limitations my stepson was given it is not a venue I personally would choose for such an event, although the service and food was good and hot, the bar could do with some up grading especially the lagers, they had only one draught lager on.
I always try to give good reports but on this occasion I am sorry to say that this is the best I can give
