The Caribbean restaurant serves great food and over 40 different rums to shake up that perfect cocktail for you and your mum. We recommend starting with a Raspberry Reggae cocktail, which includes white rum with raspberries, fresh lime and club soda. Go all out and indulge in the variety of starters or why not try the Beach Food Platter – perfect for sharing! For mains, try the Curry Goat one pot served with rice and peas.
