We were glad we staid for one last drink after our anniversary meal at the red door bar. The lady at reception and the bartender, Peter, welcomed us warmly in a manner that made the evening memorable.

Attended a wedding at The Red Door yesterday. It was fabulous from start to finish. The food was undoubtedly the best I have ever been served at a wedding. This venue and location is a must if you are in the area.
