This was such a lovely experience and the weather contributed it was lovely. The seating was so comfortable and a little extra bonus there was a mini electric fan on each table, which was put to good use by me. The meal was very nicely cooked and served and they had quite an extensive bar on board. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we felt very well looked after. The toilet facilities were very clean and modern. I will highly recommend this to all my friends and family because I cannot believe that this would promote a criticism on any quarter. Came away feeling relaxed but buzzing at the same time. Loved it will be visiting again
