    Wow its par for the course to have the odd change but when you look through that list it makes you realise how much they got wrong in the planning stages.

    Totally agree also for a pittance they could have put up shelving in the areas near the bars so you enjoy your food & drink but no they spend a fortune on things the punters do not use or require
