This place is huge with various sections and a big bar in the middle. It was crowded when we arrived on a Thursday night. Not the fastest service but food was acceptable when we got it. There was live music and it was very noisy.

We attended the New Year celebrations here with a Glasgow based friend and were very impressed with location, food and music. Given the number of tables, there must have been approx. 300 New Year revellers. The evening started at 6.45 pm with a champagne reception...More
