Venue was great for what we needed for a post-work event buffet and drinks. Katie was fantastic when it came to arranging the booking. Food came out when it was supposed to, tasted lovely and they made special arrangements to ensure anyone with dietary requirements or allergies were catered for and food correctly labelled to reflect this. Had lots of positive feedback on the whole evening from the team. Bar staff were also brilliant on the night. Would definitely book this venue again. Extremely impressed overall. Thank you to entire team at the Actress & Bishop. Best, Alex - National Gas :)
