    Dome was very cosy and had a lovely atmosphere. It was also easy
    to operate the electricals inside ie. Heater and Bluetooth Speaker. The food
    was incredible. The service from the staff was amazing especially Sami and Alessio.

  5. We came to celebrate my husbands birthday. Our two young children came along and both loved the dome. David and the team were all wonderful at explaining how everything worked in the dome and always being on hand if we needed anything. We really enjoyed the different way to dine and found it lots of fun. The food was brilliant and portions really generous even the kids menu. Everything was spotless in the dome, beautiful cushions and blankets were provided to use if required however we found with the dyson heaters the dome became very cosy very quickly. Thanks for a wonderful meal and beautiful setting!

    An enjoyable unique experience in one of the pods for my daughters 21st Birthday, before going onto seeing Coldplay. There was one little niggle and that was my daughters steak wasn’t cooked how she liked it, however once we pointed it out it was soon rectified and overall had a fabulous meal. Thankyou David and all the staff.
