Not what we expected for a Gala dinner at a 5 star hotel . We dressed up in black tie only to walk in and see jeans , open neck shirts , no jackets . Lots of children running round One course out of the 3 was edible ...everyone left the starter , main course fine , dessert everyone gave up on .
5 of us in our party ended up sharing table with 6 others ...not a problem as all nice people but what if had been a family with 4 kids .
No mention of table sharing when we booked or that children would be there. Not a problem if you know and can then decide what to do .
Not up to standard for the money and too many surprises. Entertainment was good i have to say .
