Can you use a taste card on a Saturday afternoon? I know you can't use in the evening but what about lunchtime?

Sorry cannot answer you on this, but personally I would not step inside the restaurant again, thought it was so poorly organised for such a big company
Are Children allowed? We were hoping to have a family meal for a special occasion but it depends on whether we can bring children or not. The meal would be at 17:30.
