Loved this place, it was very busy even during the day on a Friday. The food was fantastic and excellent service. It's full of quirks and history. Would love to visit at night for the hooley show - next time 😄

We had dinner here with a large group of people and the venue is very well equipped for this. The quality of the food is just ok, it is more about the show which was really great to see.

This is a great little place. We opted for the group dinner package. The meal was great as was the service. The music was good but far surpassed by the dancers. Great time, great service, good music and good food.
