Thanks for your review! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your day. We do apologise about the problems with lunch. Usually our chosen restaurant is really efficient and considerate. We have spoken to them about your experience and they put it down to being a really busy Father's Day. Thanks, Rover Rings Tours
