We had a good welcome and offered to sit anywhere. Very comfortable surroundings and pleasant music. Our meals arrived altogether and were well presented and hot. We were asked about drinks at the start but no further follow up on drinks. No body checked to see if we were happy with our meals,Very friendly atmosphere and relaxing.

The best Eggs bene I've ever had! Also on this day there was that heavy snowfall which caused powercuts, but The Hayes were very accommodating to let us change the day on such short notice!

Even if you don't go on first table, they are worth every dollar!
