Top Class Wedding Venue
The setting, service, food and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff were brilliant. All our guests commented on how perfect the day was. We also used a toastmaster Nigel Parry who was fantastic in guiding us and the guests through the process. All highly recommended.
We were more than delighted!
