Well organised, very professional service. Staff are friendly and well attended. We work in events and use 5-star hotels for our clients so we know a thing or two about good services and Humphrey and the team provided a very good one. Price is reasonable, too. Thanks again Humphrey!

Pizzas were deep pan, thick crust. I like thin crust so it would be great to have an option to choose thin crust. But this is not at all a deal breaker and I'd use the venue again.
