We went a couple of Fridays ago. The so-called market was a waste of space but the Blue Restaurant buffet brunch was again excellent. Looked at the Rupee Room but only one seafood item in the buffet brunch, battered fish. No problem parking in Car Park 2 at 12 noon.

Go for it....! The restuarants there are nice, there's a nice Chinese (something...Orchid), Indian (Rupee Room), fish restuarant (with some sad looking lobsters in the window), lebanese, japanese......and Jonny Rockets and Spinneys !

I will be able to see you all from my apartment and depending on how dodgy you all look, will decide whether to come along....lol
