Great space and good value. It was recommended by a friend that has used it 3 times. The staff were very attentive and responsive to things I was asking for, e.g. getting projector and music sorted, bringing extra tables out, keeping cake in the fridge, extra cleaning required. It’s very handy to have the balcony and smoking area, private bar, and toilets on the same floor. It was a great birthday and I would definitely use the space again.

We only had one member of staff behind the bar, which for 50 guests was not enough. I also had 30 people cancel last minute so this definitely wouldn’t have been enough. The bartender was lovely and friendly but incredibly slow. People were waiting a long time to be served. Some cocktails took over 20 minutes to be made, and the bar wasn’t fully stocked with everything needed so she had to go to different bars to get ingredients. I was told there’d be a mic but there wasn’t one. The loos are nearby and smell awful if you’re near the door to the gallery.
