Reviews for Newcastle hen activities

Cocktail Making & 2 Course Meal at Howlers

Cocktail making class was fab. Louis was great! Accommodated those who couldn’t have alcohol.The meal was nice but the portion of the share board desserts need to be much bigger. The mushroom tacos were far too small for a main meal. Please consider this size of this meal as others will be disappointed. Would def book the cocktail class again- meal maybe not
