They have a nice bar while we were there one night the restaurant was booked out by a Chinese tourist group, and the next night they had a room booked out for a birthday which seemed to be a 70th plenty of guests at the birthday all seemed to be having a great time. Best idea would be to ring them the staff are excellent and very helpful
