About this space
Our inside Garden Arch on the upper floor is a light airy space with a summer garden feel and is decorated with flowers and fake grass.
It's a great space for your next celebration and is hugely popular for engagement and birthday parties, or a sit-down meal on weekdays, and leads directly outside to our private outside space adding an extension to your company summer party.
On weekends have a DJ on from 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays playing a mix of commercial R&B, Pop, House and Club Classics (Kisstory vibe).
The space is also ideal for company meetings, presentations and away-days and if booked for this comes with projector, screen and flip charts if required.
Our garden arch seats 20 for dinner parties or up to 50 for a standing reception. Dimensions: 4m x 7.5m.

The location, the staff, the space all great!
The DJ was due at 10pm , but didnt show... which was actually very disappointing because it was a party without music (other than streamed music too quiet to get people dancing).
Really easy to organise and communication was great. The people I was speaking to were really nice and helpful. Venue was a great atmosphere!
There were some particularly rude members of staff at the venue which was a shame as other than that it was a great night. The bouncers were really unnecessary and rude, with condescending comments speaking to members of the party like school children.
- 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.
Great service and food, great location and spacious place, We had a really great time, thanks to Steve and the team.
