It's a lovely location on the with a view over the themes
The bar manager was very disengaged. He seamed tired and hungover. However we got really good service later in the day from a young italien female staff member. The music wasn't playing as speakers wasn't working most of the day. It is too expensive. I paid £200 for a tiny area which is way to much for that experience. It would have been more fair if the money could have gone towards the drinks bill.
Absolutely brilliant. Great space, sound, nice toilets, ace view and easy to get to. The staff were wonderful and so helpful. Also, in the run up, replies and organization was efficient and pleasant. Would highly recommend.
Excellent location and atmosphere!
Great team there who are extremely accommodating and flexible. Fun and quirky venue
