Our group consisted of 5 adults and 4 young children. From start to finish the experience was very good and the staff were very friendly. Our children were happy and well behaved, having been treated to books and crayons for entertainment. The food was very good and I can recommend the sizzling platter, just remember to let it cool a while before tucking in! We will visit again, you should too!
