Not my usual kind of review, but we had such a great time I thought I’d do a post about it on my blog. My lovely husband booked this for me for my birthday (after a not so subtle hint!), and it was every bit as brilliant as I’d imagined. Plus, if you have to be gluten-free for whatever reason, the menu is surprisingly good.
You can book online here, or on the telephone if you have accessibility requirements. For individual dietary requirements, including gluten-free, the website states you must contact them at least 48 hours prior to attendance. The email address for this is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The website has a whole section about food and drink, including the menus, and a link to their allergen information. Details can be found here.
Not surprisingly, given that the party is based in Nikos Taverna, the menu is Greek based. When looking everything up online before hinting to my husband I’d love to go, I was very happy to see that almost everything is gluten free. If only everywhere catered like this! The bread and crackers obviously are not safe, but these are replaced with GF rolls (not the best, but fine with the dips!).
The standard dessert is shown as gluten free, however our waitress told us that it was not safe as it was a ‘may contain’, and it was reassuring that they were aware of this level of information. Sadly we weren’t able to have the vegan dessert as an alternative, as isn’t GF, so we were given a mix of berries with coconut cream.
You don’t get everything at once, instead it is served throughout the evening, with pauses in the entertainment.
I don’t want to give too many spoilers, but if you like Abba songs, and enjoyed Mamma Mia, then it’s definitely worth booking! Doors open at 18.30 for the evening show, and the after disco was still going strong when we left around 22.30.
