The people on the door made a mistake on the numbers on our tables and charges one of our party an additional £15 to come in. We complained and they advised fhat someone must have tailgated some of us through the door, however that is your mistake and not ours. We had three benches and 6 people on each. Very dissapointing. They were also not very accomadting when asking for all three benches together and made us all sit separately. Awful service would not recommend.

Would have liked another food option. Service was good - barely had to queue for drinks. Would be better to have online booking, such as Eventbrite, rather than by email. Atmosphere was good but I think if there had been more people allowed in it would have been better. Would be better to have a set fee for a table that turns into your bar tab.

I went to watch the England match and the atmosphere was incredible!! Me and my friends had such a fab time! The drinks were priced fair and the weather made the day! The table we got was right in front of the screen and felt like we were actually there in the crowd! Iv recommended to friends and will re book for the next England match!!

Went got the England v Panama game, great place to watchl especially when the weather is great. Paid to reserve a bench however security needs to be sorted ASAP otherwise the bombardment of cans from the people standing will continue every time a goal goes in. The security did absolutely nothing about this and didn't look interested at all in getting involved which left people taking it into their own hands and some ugly confrontations especially with children around. The drinks prices are high considering they are just bulk buying cans in from local supermarket. Sort out the security and this would be so much better for everyone

Amazing service from Lucy during our bottomless brunch - experience slightly ruined when we were kicked out of our hut by another lady arriving on shift, we were told because a booking was going in however the hit was shut and no one went in after. Again amazing service by Lucy!

Hi Olivia, Thanks for letting us know about your experience. As you can imagine the chalet bookings are very busy that late in December so we need to prepare them for other customers who are booked in. If the chalet wasn't occupied after you that must have been a booking that didn't show up. We wouldn't have asked you to move just for the sake of it. We hope this didn't dampen the experience too much. Many thanks, Jonathan

I booked a table for 8 people and when we arrived had been allocated 1 bench which was far too small to fit usvround. Luckily we found some stools as well but this table shouldn’t have been allocated to so many people. The barmaid Lucy was great as she helped get our drinks direct to our table to avoid queuing. The prosecco was far too expensive

Hi Nikki, Thanks for your feedback, our benches are designed to have up to 6 people on each so I'm not sure why you weren't allocated 2 benches for your group. I apologise for the communication breakdown our end. re: The price of Prosecco - We do a lot of research locally when pricing our products and our prosecco is cheaper than many of the mainstream venues in the town. Many thanks, Jonathan

Arrived and had to wait 20 minutes to be taken to our lodge. Then another 20 minutes before we received our drinks.

We had a great night for our office Christmas party. Jonathan and Ben were extremely helpful with helping me organise the event. All of the staff were great on the night and my colleagues have been really complementary.The atmosphere was really festive and the live music was a great touch. My only criticism would be that the toilets were not in great shape, but probably to be expected for port-a-loos!

We had an amazing time! The pizzas were delicious and the staff were friendly, particularly Chloe who was very welcoming and attentive. A lovely experience for my mum and dad who wouldn't normally have done this sort of activity but they thoroughly loved it. Would recommend.
