Honestly, absolutely nothing negative about our event. Steve was excellent to work with, supported my ideas, gave his own that matched our vision, the day went absolutely fantastically with good reports from all of our guests. Could not recommend them more.

- Steve (Event manager) was friendly, timely and informative in all of his responses which made planning the event for a large group so much easier for me. - We were assigned two teams member on the day to look after us and they were wonderful, helpful and responsive to all our needs - The team were so accommodating - even to all the last minute changes, unexpected delays/orders. It was clear they wanted to make our time there as pleasant as possible! - The venue was lovely and the area we were given was spacious - Reasonable prices for food and drink

- Nothing but if there would be a suggestion to the team then I think it'd the food could have been better - it was good but nothing that blew me away.
