Had dinner at the Sun Bay Hotel Restaurant on Friday night. The food was cooked fresh and tasted lovely, the portions were generous. Too full to have desert I chose a festive hot chocolate later (Amaretto) which was very indulgent.

The restaurant is quite large and they do cater for weddings. I would suggest that the wedding party would have to be quite small.
