Super cute venue, it was perfect for a hen do painting class. Kevin was very helpful throughout. We were even able to extend our rental by a few hours as we were having so much fun. Highly recommend!

Steve and the team were really helpful and flexible in preparing, setting up and looking after us on the night. One of the railway arches was perfect was 50 people and the ability to spill out into the wider area was also great.
