"fantastic, really enjoyable evening."

"Went to see mama Mia for daughters hen party weekend, booked as part of hotel/show package. The show was brilliant and although we had seats right at the back of the balcony we could still see most of the stage/show. We liked the idea of being able to pre order drinks for the interval. We ordered wine and it was waiting for us with our name on and all the glasses ready! We also liked the jug of water and glasses on the bar which was complementary."
