- Steve (Event manager) was friendly, timely and informative in all of his responses which made planning the event for a large group so much easier for me. - We were assigned two teams member on the day to look after us and they were wonderful, helpful and responsive to all our needs - The team were so accommodating - even to all the last minute changes, unexpected delays/orders. It was clear they wanted to make our time there as pleasant as possible! - The venue was lovely and the area we were given was spacious - Reasonable prices for food and drink

- Nothing but if there would be a suggestion to the team then I think it'd the food could have been better - it was good but nothing that blew me away.
