    Soft and strong drinks I wouldn't regard this as a good selling point for the food menu. Can you find a couple of other traditional dishes? I would put the reference to selling both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks in your positive points.

    Suitability for tourists

    - Many of the staff speak a second language.
    - Credit cards are accepted

    Positive points

    - Can be reached by public transport easily
    - A wide variety of food that will appeal to the tourists
    - Entertainment is available A better selling point would be "Live entertainment, such as balalaika players", but you have already mentioned the live music.

    Negative pints

    - Prices in general are quite high
    - It is overcrowded, especially on weekends

    Conclusion

    In spite of the disadvantages, I would recommend The Old Mill for your group.
