Visits Details

05 Dec 2018 (ChrisE)
My first visit since the recent refurbishment. There were sincere apologies from the staff because the Harvey's was not quite ready but the alternatives were quite acceptable. I was invited to a free breakfast early next week when they will be doing a trial run before opening regularly in the morning.
