just had a week in Benidorm and had to go and see the Showboat, it was great fun and the drag act was great and very funny (nothing like a good laugh) drinks were ordinary price so great value for money

Third impression, waiter... More

we booked for christmas day lunch after reading reviews,and how disappointed we were,for 47euro per head you would think you were going to get something extra special but sadly no. Frozen vegetables ,no mashed potatoes and very bland.all in all very disappointed.

Hi James im shocked as we have had lots of great messages about xmas day. All of our produce is fresh and prepared daily, sorry you was disappointed and for that you should have asked to see myself or Gary to resolve any issues you had. More
