Good Ambiance. We toyed with the idea of having lunch as the food looked good, with nice cakes. Took our time sampling the rum instead which was very good. They have a range of rum samplers- very good prices for a taster.

What a great idea. Loved the tasting in particular the Cane Royale. Love the atmosphere. The aged rum was outside my budget though. The rum cake was fantastic and the didn’t skimp on the rum. Great was to spend and hour.
