We were a group of 23 (adults and children) and the room was a perfect set up for our requirements. From first viewing the venue a few months ago to arriving on the day, Jasmine, the Assistant Operations Manager was so... More

Everything was top notch, the food combinations were creative, interesting and it all tasted wonderful. The staff were attentive and very patient with our large party. We would definitely recommend and return. Not at all expensive, such a great value for money.

We attended a special comedians' evening in the glass house. The restricted menu was excellent and my wife particularly enjoyed her vegetarian option. The staff service was very professional and they were very attentive. I could not understand most of the three comedians, who all spoke very quickly and with suspect diction.
