We had an absolutely phenomenal time with yourselves and the care we received from the staff at the balmoral was exactly the quality we had anticipated. Thank you to everyone who was available on the day and to Katie for organising the entire wedding breakfast and reception for us. We really appreciate all of your hard work and for accommodating us at such short notice!Sent on 19/03/2020

We wanted to say a Massive Thank You for giving us the Best Wedding Day we could have ever asked for.Sent on 01/09/2020
From start to finish your services were professional, genuine and truly outstanding. Wedding planning to menu tasting and onto the big day where all our guests felt extremely cared for, nothing was ever too much. Your staff were efficient and friendly and the food was just divine. All in all, everything was just stunning.
Your expertise and passion is something to be admired and we cannot thank you Katie, Tomek (head waiter), Bob (Toast master) and all your staff enough. You are all a real asset to the Balmoral.
We cannot recommend the Balmoral highly enough.
