Dreamcatchers, fairy lights and glass bottle lighting - sounds like something you’d find on a girl’s Pinterest board for room decor inspiration, right?

The shakes here are delightful and we really enjoyed all the drinks they served. One negative - the food is below average and needs some serious re-doing.
