Excellent location & only a stone throw away from Balham Station. Downstairs area was descent size and had a nice ambience for our quiz night. Communication with the manager was a pleasure, and staff on the day was so nice and helpful. Recommended

The Bluetooth speaker could have been louder

Excellent venue, from the decoration to the cozy and private area since it remains downstairs, excellent service, the girls were attentive at all times.

Might have more staff when it is a private event for the organization of catering specially, as I worried for the staff, they were very busy trying to be with us and to the public upstairs at the same time.

The venue is really beautiful and it is amazing that it is so secluded from the public so the ambience of your event can be curated very well which I am very grateful for.

Unfortunately when we arrived the place was not cleaned and we had to ask a member of staff to help us vacuum clean the floor and bring wipes as surfaces were left dirty. As we were wrapping up the event, and all of us getting ready to leave, the lights were turned on and off repeatedly, prompting someone who has epilepsy to get an epileptic shock. At one point lights were completely turned off and we were left in complete darkness not making it able for us to pack up all our staff properly and having to use our phones as flashlights. When we got upstairs there was no thank you or goodbye from the one member of staff who was clearly in a hurry to get all of us out. It left a very unpleasant and unprofessional impression. This was my second time booking this venue and I now question if I ever want to come back after being treated like that.
