Great response time Great service Great value for money! Easy to reach location Flexible with catering Overall very impressed

Would be better if there was a men’s and ladies’ toilets on both floors- that’s the only reason Venue was 4/5.

The venue was lovely and as the night went on the atmosphere grew as well. We booked the blue seating booth, but ended up hardly using it, instead choosing to stand around the bar, which didn't seem to be a problem. The staff were helpful and there was a good energy between them. Other than our party, there were two other groups on the same floor, but we felt like we had enough space of our own. In addition, another group had reserved the beer pong table, but we were able to use it for a game or two after checking with them.

We chose not to use the table we had booked because we couldn't talk across it as it was so wide. The lighting was particularly dark around the booth as well, and although there were lights, we were told they could not be turned on for the booth individually, which meant they could not be turned on at all.

Easy to arrange, staff was friendly and food was decent

Booth reserved was too dark, lighting wasn’t great. Chicken platter was already sold out by 6pm. Staff was helpful only when asked, really didn’t make us feel any special compared to anyone else who turned up without reserving an area

The venue itself was great and would have been just the ticket if it was busy and the dancefloor had opened. Food and drinks were delicious.

The staff were not very friendly and seemed a bit annoyed that we were there. There were very few other customers so I can understand they wanted to shut up early and go home, but this was disappointing when we had booked to party and enjoy a dance!
