The venue offers two dining rooms, a bar, lounge, cigar room and private dining rooms.

I totally fell in love with the décor the crisp, clean, white décor was perfectly complemented by the both classic and contemporary pieces. They really have done amazing work to bring the space to life.

The portion size were good, food was delicious, tasty and beautifully presented.

The dish of the evening for me was definitely the Risotto the Calamari was simply to die for.

We were lucky enough to have Chef Conrad there on the night and he not only came out to Thank Us for joining in on the evening, but also happily obliged to some pics.
