The stuff was friendly, flexible with my ideas and enquiries, min spend was super reasonable comparing to other London venues and commute wasn’t hard nor long even from North London! I’d definitely come back and recommend to others x many of my guests were there for the 1st time and loved it!

The venue was gorgeous, great communication and lovely staff

Slightly overpriced and it was annoying that our bar had limited stock.
