Don’t forget the drinks…from craft beer, to spirts and cocktails, guests can take their pick from yet another wide and thirst-quenching selection.

Not only is the food bangin’, so is the entertainment. Sitting alongside their expansive food menu that takes in delights all over the world is a cultural programme of artists and DJs.
