I was a guest at Sonia and Chris' wedding last Saturday and I wanted to say thank you for the great response from the staff in catering for my dietary requirements.Sent on 28/07/2021
I don't eat meat and when I asked what I could eat from the bbq, staff asked the kitchen to prepare some prawns for me specially. Not only were they delicious, they arrived within 5 minutes and with no sense that it was any bother.
Thank you again

Terrible don’t consider this venue
They have basically taken our money and cancelled our wedding reception they refuse to refund despite us not even signing anything to cancel they have £5k of our money and they have had the front to book in another bridal party so they have profiting by our loss and now won’t respond. The venue is lovely but they honestly don’t care for you. Nice at first but then awfulSent on 20/07/2021

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say how much we enjoyed being guests at your beautiful venue yesterday for Will and Kim's wedding. We were very impressed with the amazing level of service during the whole day and the waiting staff were absolutely spot on with the care to all you could really tell that whoever was in control of them all did a fantastic job, you should be very proud of them all. After all the restrictions ot was so nice to be able to get together with so many people and I'm sure it came with complications for you and your staff but well done for such a well oiled machine! Thank you again, I will be recommending your venue to lots of people who are wanting to find a wedding venue as I make wedding cakes so have quite a few contacts looking for the perfect place!Sent on 28/07/2021
