We held our wedding breakfast at the MM 20 years ago and love it! Recently had a big birthday celebration and the quality of the food is the best in the local area.

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. The whole experience felt special: the atmosphere; decor; staff; and food. Sublime. It’s not cheap but you get what you pay for. And it’s worth every penny.
