Molly I.
June 2023

We hired the whole venue for a two day event. Management and staff we dealt with from the venue were fantastic and very accommodating to our needs and requests. Also the burgers were unbelievable.

The venue radiators on the side by the main bar kept turning on in the mornings when it the days getting to be 27-30 by the afternoon. Quickly rectified but took a while for them to cool down.
