Wow! Food was amazing, the best vegan Thai curry I’ve had in ages, the chef was most definitely not afraid of spices! Clayton’s have now set the standard for Thai curry in my book. My husband had the pork belly and was equally impressed. Lovely venue, fantastic food, looking forward to going again and would highly recommend.

We booked in the glasshouse to celebrate our 54th wedding anniversary. A friendly welcome as we entered and shown quickly to our table. The staff were very attentive with time to spend with us. A great surprise was a complementary drink for our anniversary. The food was delicious and presented well. We were able to compliment the chef on the quality of the food. Thanks to all the staff for a great night.
