We were more than delighted!
I just wanted to thank you and all the staff including the operations manager on both our wedding day and the next day for looking after us and our guests at the races. There wasn’t anything that was too much trouble and we’ll always look back at that weekend with the fondest of memories. All the work behind the scenes, including the delicious food was not unnoticed and we were more than delighted with how it all went.Sent on 26/01/2018

Spoken with Martin Beaumont and he said that Susie Wood could not have been more complimentary and grateful for the great job done for the wedding . Everybody thought the dinner delicious and said the team could not have been more helpful.Sent on 02/12/2016
