The seafood banquet on Saturday was amazing!!! The crayfish was to-die-for and the perfectly cooked chili crab was an outstanding favorite! The salads were fresh and inviting, begging me to sample them. We were comfortable and left satisfied. Thank you for your wonderful food

we brought 24 of our residents from Hazelmere Village for a Christmas function. The food was excellent, as was the service. The menu catered for the needs of older people. From the feedback is looks like we will be coming back for Christmas celebration in early December 2017.
