Some of the delicious meals hubs and I ate included Seafood Marinara (which was amazing) and a delicious Beef Burger served on a milk bun with onion rings (washed down with a beer of course).

The boys feasted on Spaghetti Bolognese and Fish and Chips. They loved the spaghetti so much they ordered it two nights in a row! We loved that the kids were served on colourful plastic plates with their own colourful cutlery too. It’s the little detail.” – Kate
