Customer testimonials

"Can you please pass on our thanks to the team who looked after us – both during the day and in the evening. The day ran so smoothly, and nothing was too much trouble – we did have a small issue over the vegetarian / vegan meal, but the team handled it professionally, and the chef rustled up an alternative.
It was a pleasure to work with you, and I thank you personally for all your help and support, I would definitely recommend you as a venue to anyone. A massive thank you to everyone – I am aware it takes a great team effort to deliver on the day which everyone did – you should be proud of your team."

"Yesterday was great – the food was outstanding and Gurj ( the duty manager ) was fab. I wanted to say thank you to you and the team on the day.

We had some tech issues, which they helped us with, and the team with the food were so flexible, it made my life much easier. We had so many compliments re. the food that it was amazing. People loved the venue and we would definitely look to hold another event there."
