We had a lovely time at my daughters joint Hen Party making flower crowns. The set up in Akva was excellent with ample space and a nice airy area,

Nobody let me know the venue was closing at 4pm so my plans were a bit ruined really. Nice place but that really was a pain.

Service from the waiting staff was good but the kitchen took 45mins to produce simple brunch dishes! We were disappointed as we had to rush our food as we were going to the rugby and we thought we’d left plenty of time for a quick snack! Waitress couldn’t have been nicer and was very apologetic but not the best experience!

Bad food in noisy place. Only three ladies - two out of order and the third with a broken seat. Service was very nice but did not disguise the terrible food

Very disappointed - we had made a booking for ten -a family occasion following an event at Escape Reality next door. When we arrived, we were told that we would have to wait 45 mins to an hour for our food - not possible with children in the group. We were not offered anything - a plate of nibbles or a drink by way of recompense. So we left, disappointed and frustrated - it spoiled a planned family occasion. We will not be back and we will not recommend you to anyone

Service was a little slow but we weren't in too much of a rush so it was otherwise a fab visit with tasty food - we will be back!

Booked a table of 12 work colleagues a week or two before, but were given three separate tables by the window. Was a shame as we all wanted to sit together and eat and bond.

Drinks were expensive but the food was good. Staff were child friendly and aware of holding back the little boy's food because he was asleep. The waiter said it was no problem and kept looking over till we were ready for his food to be cooked. Will definitely go back again.
