Absolutely brilliant service, anything I wanted or needed the staff were there to help and do it for me to keep my stress levels down. They were amazing! As long as you keep to your minimum spend the venue is free! So worth the money.

The only thing I wish they did different was to offer me at least a bottle of Prosecco or two when I had to pay the remaining £230 of the minimum spend - but I don’t think it was bad that they didn’t, it just would have been nice of them to do that.

Friendly staff, very cool atmosphere, and nice to have our own space and dance floor for our staff Christmas do. Overall a really great evening.

Staff were unsure of what food they were serving, for the people that may have asked them what it was. Canapes was especially small, so make sure to order more than needed!

Excellent venue for my 40th birthday party for 45 guests - perfect size to create a great atmosphere. Really cool venue, lovely decor, which all guests commented on and totally private - own entrance , toilets and cloakroom. Bar staff (Marcel) were excellent and attentive and the canapés were delicious. Music can be turned up loud enough to have a good dance without being deafening. Enough seats for those who want to sit. All in, perfect!

Nothing, all great!

Great team - really helpful with al my requests, super venue and lovely food.

The coffee was inconsistent - some pots very weak, some strong. Juice was not fresh - tasted like long life/ from concentrate . but other than that everything was great
