Hi mark , sounds good , are you looking to book as a group or do you need us to book individually ? Just thinking of how to get any money to someone prior ! Also Looking at the website the place looks pretty decent too !

Great place, a bit less intimidating that Pembroke.  Shame I can't make it, I'm sure you'll have a great time.
