Staff were really helpful and nothing was too much hassle Able to pre-order drinks before the date which went towards minimum spend which was useful Good sized venue, had a 360 photo booth in one corner, backdrop and balloons in another and with the chairs removed still had space for a dance floor

The venue was perfect for my 40th Birthday party! :) The venue location was excellent, the staff were super helpful and friendly.. The fact that I could play my own music selection was great too!

No negatives. It was the perfect venue for what I wanted.
