Gluten free option was embarrassing. I did prewarn the venue several times and they could only produce one tiny cup cake for my friend. The cocktails were ok except the Mojito which was awful.

Fun fun fun! Don’t go if you’re expecting a high end afternoon tea, but do go if you want loads to drink and party! We partied with everyone else in there and crawled out! Such great fun!
