  1. Special birthday

    We were celebrating a special birthday and enjoyed the Dome very much. We then moved into the bar. Everything felt very safe. All staff we had contact with were lovely. My only reservations are that the afternoon tea is expensive for what you get, compared with other establishments, and the gluten free afternoon tea was let down by huge slabs of sandwiches and olives and cucumber in place of sausage roll (GF sausage rolls arent hard to make or buy in!) But overall, would reccommend to friends.

  2. Looking forward to our next visit

    We really enjoyed our evening at The Willow Tree in the Igloo and looking forward to our next visit.

  3. Brilliant

    Brilliant service and great experience in the dining domes. Would highly recommend.

  4. Lovely Experience

    We had a lovely afternoon tea in a dome for my mother’s birthday. All in all a lovely experience.

  5. Worth the wait

    We booked the dome. We had a long wait for our food but as an apology our drinks were taken off our bill. The food was incredible and definitely worth the wait.

  6. It was a great experience

    We dined in one of the domes for a wedding anniversary meal, as we have a vulnerable baby at home so wanted to be extra safe. The dome was very warm and we felt so safe and away from everyone else. The waitress only came in the dome to take our orders and was out again. They are aired out between guests and wiped down from the inside too. The food and service was excellent too. We had lunch there. The pizza was delicious. We got 3 starters as I read the portion sizes were small. However, this was not the case. The pork starter is pretty decent so by the time my pizza arrived I could only manage 2 slices and took the rest to go. I was also able to order dessert to go. It was a great experience. I would highly recommend it.

  14. Great place

    Lovely place, evenings are very nice with the lights. The staff was great.

  15. We celebrated my mums 60th in one of the domes. It was a lovely and unique experience. My husband and brother felt the portion sizes could have been bigger as they both still felt hungry after their main (one had chicken roast and the other burger and chips) but the food was tasty.
    Covid guidelines were very robust with staff wearing masks and gloves and cleaning surfaces regularly.

  26. The perfect place for a celebration or a romantic dinner

    I decided to book the dome for my friends 40th and I am pleased to say that we were not disappointed. The domes were beautiful at night, they lit up and it was lovely. The service was brilliant, the waiters all had masks and they never once entered the dome due to covid – 19. The food was really good and we all had the best time. The perfect place for a celebration or a romantic dinner. Will definitely be booking again.
