All reader reviews by Whitey


After being invited to a "straight from work get together" on 27/04/2007. I first decided to 'look the place up' so to speak via the internet. I was pleasantly surprised that low & behold a review page with previous ratings appeared before my very eyes. (Wow)

My excitement was even more enhanced when I saw the scores, foolishly I promised the ‘massive’ that I would send my review once the night was extinguished. So, well recovered, overdue but still sharp in the mind here goes….

Being late (again) from work I did not want to miss any more than I already had so straight to the bar & upon waiting for service met a few of the ‘massive’ who informed me that was in-fact happy hour! Music to my ears we then proceeded to dominate the staff in our quest for refreshment & docked in the chill out zone.

Armed with plenty of alcoholic ammunition we settled down to enjoy the surroundings of our new found watering hole.

The night began slightly edgy due to not everyone knowing each other that well, however during the course of the gathering we all had a magnificent feast of fun, jokes, great company & above all an excellent sanctuary.

We all mixed & matched our cocktails, even divulged in the fruit flavoured hashish that was available Strawberry, Cherry & Blackcurrant.

The staff were helpful, polite patient & well presented.

The only disappointment was that we were unable to sample the cuisine mainly because that we were unaware of the meal facility until we had already cremated the whip round (next time possibly…..).

The only other blotch was that the ones that stayed until the bar closed was that the last trains had already departed (time flies when you are having fun) & it was the good old night bus for the remaining stragglers, to plan the route home.

Nevertheless it was well worth the experience & I think I can speak for the whole of the ‘Massive’ that very soon we will be retuning to our new found pleasure leisure
