My partner and I had a great time for lunch at the Hotpot Spot. The service was friendly and quick, and the food was excellent. We ordered the vegetable plater and meat plater and they were both enormous. The vegetable platter, in particular, was bursting...More

You can hopefully park inside the Globe Centre car park if it's not too busy a night. Sadly there's a flight of stairs to get to us. Give us a ring on 02920 455888 and we'll try to make arrangements ahead of your arrival.
