Stopped in for a drink. Everything was ok, room for a largish group service was not bad. Drink options were good. Something for everyone,

Wow! This seems a little harsh. I'm afraid we do sometimes run out of Nu as we order a set number each day to ensure their freshness. I'm afraid I not sure what you mean by "abit unspoilt" but I'll take that as you love...More

Sunday is always difficult here. Trader Jacks is open six nights a week with Sunday a day off for the hard working team. Bamboo Jacks is open on Sundays for an awesome dinner and a great selection of drinks.

Can you purchase your Coconut Chilli Sauce outside of the Cooks? We love it and can't get back next year but we are going as far as New Zealand. Do you sell it there and if so, where? Thanks. Robin
