After finally being proposed to by my boyfriend, I started planning my wedding immediately and of course organised the most important aspect first; the hen night! I decided I wanted to take myself and my closest girlfriends to a beautiful, luxurious dinner before dancing the night away and was recommended San Carlo by a friend so thought I’d give it a go. I was certainly not disappointed. My friends and I had a lovely evening, complete with drinks (of course) sharing stories and jokes just like old times. It felt like we were sat at home in the dining room, not a restaurant! An absolutely brilliant start to our memorable night. Thank you to all the staff that made it so special, especially the lovely waiter who was ever so patient with my friends’ special requirements. I can’t wait to come back here with my husband to be. Thank you!
