I’ll start off by saying that I love Omni - I’ve been many times since it first opened and have never had a bad meal. Yes it can be frustrating that they don’t take bookings sometimes... but then again, it means that if you fancy...More

First visit today on the recommendation of my wife. So pleased we did - the menu looks very tempting but today we just had a coffee and a cake. I had a blueberry and lemon cake whilst my wife had a gluten free brownie. Both...More
