My husband and I enjoyed a late night drink - we do wish they had a menu available but unfortunately we were forced to eat room service only

My husband and I had a nightcap here on the outdoor terrace after sending the kids to bed. We had a pleasant time but were slightly miffed to see a charge for the nuts on the bill at check out as we handed requested them and the server just brought them out to us unbidden.

After reading previous reviews we decided to catch the typical sunset on the deck, and enjoy cocktails.Bit difficult to see a sunset when the gardens are so lush, but we still enjoyed the experiance. Cocktails were a touch too sweet, Mojito and Margeritas and not quite as was advertised, service excellent and the sticky pork riblets tasted pre cooked.

Located in the palace with seating inside or outside. The food was very good. We had Caesar salads and club sandwiches between us. The service was very good and the setting lovely. Perfect if you want a quick bite to eat in casual surroundings ;-)

A tranquil setting and good place to unwind & relax with kids. Food is good. Limited seating and slow service if you are in a hurry. You can catch up on some reading, newspaper or just relax & enjoy the music. Staff are very helpful and friendly.

To get to the Tusk Bar we walked through the most amazing settings, stopped to stare at the Crystal Court and then settled into our chairs in the Tusk Bar and... More

We had a lovely evening sitting outside on the terrace of the Tusk Bar. The service was fantastic and the food was good (up market gastropub sort of style). Cocktails to begin, a shared starter, one main course each, one dessert plus one liqueur and a couple of G&Ts only set us back about £90 all in. We weren't guests... More

Got there, and was as always, friendly greeted by Christina. We ordered our drinks, and a nice snack bord, with plain cassew nuts, peri peri cassew nuts and green olives arrived. The menu at the Tusk bar has changed for the better and we are very delighted about it! I had, as usual, the chicken strips, they are absolutely to... More
