Venue amazing, staff are amazing all the correspondence leading upto event was amazing.
It was amazing! Thank you to Mike and Chris and also to Shirley for all her help booking our night. We had an excellent time and all the staff of the Cavendish Arms were really chilled out and helpful if we needed anything. Mike ran the karaoke for us and it was so nice not to worry about anything. Thank you to all!
Such a lovely venue. It defo served its purpose for my project. Thank you again for accommodating me.
Amazing venue, great staff. Had around 50+ people and everyone enjoyed the vibe and atmosphere. I will definitely be hosting more events here. Very flexible with music, lighting and set up. Would definitely recommend!
