  • Brunch With Santa 2024

    £15.00 per person

    Prepaid

    30 Nov - 24 Dec 2024
    Following last year’s hugely successful Brunch with Santa, we’re delighted to bring them back for another year. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting families from near and far and can’t wait to welcome back the big man himself for another month of fun! We have a range of dates to choose from but do be careful as they sell out quickly. On the day you’ll enjoy a hearty brunch for adults (hot drink included) and we more than look after the wee ones with food & drink and of course a visit and gift from Santa.

    Food & cocktails were good? Service was not great, had to keep looking for staff to order drinks/food/ dessert, and when our dessert arrived we had to sit with our food plates still in the middle of the table!

    Food was terrible. Been several times no issue. Mac cheese was bland. Buffalo chicken was stringy and not very falvourful. Full menu was not on the app despite being advised it was available. Service was slow. Really don't know what happened from last time I was there.

    We had a lovely time catching up. We all had pizza which was delicious! The staff were very attentive and tried to offer us a different table when our 2hr timeslot was up. Would definitely recommend 🌟
