The flexibility demonstrated on booking. The service staff on the evening were incredibly helpful too. The venue location was amazing and we received compliments from our guests on the venue choice. Overall food quality was great. And the wine choices were also really great!

During booking it would have been great if one of the team could have let us know that our point of contact was off sick. Only because of the short timescales for our events, we felt we lost a couple of days in being able to get our invitations out. In the scheme of it, this isn't a major point! There was just one piece of feedback on the risotto, which is that it was a little hard - however I didn't personally get to try it to be able to make a judgement (hence the 4 stars)! Overall the food was very well received!
