Could not fault a single thing
Venue Service

By Martin, father of the bride, on 10 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2018

"What a fantastic venue for a wedding, my daughter and son-in-law got married in October 2018. Organisation was fantastic, led by Katie, and I could not fault a single thing. Katie’s commitment to making sure the wedding ran really smoothly was above and beyond what we could have expected. I would have no hesitation in recommending the venue, and above all, Katie. Thank you all so much for a wedding that ran to perfection.”

"Our wedding was truly magical thanks to Katie and all the staff. Katie ensured everything went to plan and was always available to answer any questions. The food was amazing and we have had several comments from our guests about how much they enjoyed the food. The wine waiters were constantly topping up glasses at the meal and the whole dinner service was fantastic. Thank you to Katie and all the staff for an unforgettable day.”
