The venue was lovely and I would definitely use it again. When arranging the venue Jess and other members of staff were always quick with responses when I had queries and they made sure that everything was covered. There was also a girl who worked on the bar inside who came out to wish me a happy birthday and that was really nice.

Although this is not something I experienced directly as I did not go to the bar, a few people have said that the service from the staff in the inside of the venue (I am not sure who they were referring to specifically), were not that friendly.
