Swift responses from Cheryl to any queries Buffet was superb quality - artisan breads , meats and cheeses. Laid out really well when required . Bar staff on the day were excellent - friendly and capable . The venue is an ideal size and layout- my party was approximately 80-90. Sound system was absolutely fine . The room is airy and light. Pool table was put to good use . The staff were happy for decorations to be put around .

A shame the back cobbled area is not available due to licensing restrictions but this was explained to me before the day .

The staff were incredibly helpful, especially with setting up and taking down decorations. Everyone was super friendly, and it was very good value. Really appreciated everything and highly recommend!

None!

Food

Despite discussing a party involving a DJ, Music is not actually allowed above talking volume past 8pm due to licensing and neighbour issues (including someone with kids living upstairs). Not a party place in my opinion and we feel lied to, 100pc choose another venue if you feel music makes a party. Extremely aggressive staff member cannot handle big crowds. No Aperol, no Dark Rum, No access to courtyard.
