Amazing Food and Service

We cannot thank you and the staff at The Fable enough for making Saturday the most special day for us. Everything was perfect, the layout, the staff and oh my god the food!! Everyone commented on how amazing the place was and just how incredible the meals were. The Lamb was probably one of the best things I have ever eaten; please give our compliments and thanks to the kitchen staff.

Thank you for making the day so special, we cannot have asked for anything else from you and your team; even the small gestures like bringing us a glass of bubbles while taking photos outside meant so much to us. You guys were amazing!!

Thank you so much

the most PERFECT wonderful and enjoyable day!

We just want to say that we had the most PERFECT, wonderful, seemless and enjoyable day!! We never ever expected it to go the way it went - and it's all down to you guys at The Fable. The service was just incredible, the food was so tasty (our guests would not stop talking about the food!!) and Abi was just an absolute legend. Totally in control and NOTHING was a bother for her. A lot of our guests, during the day and after, are a saying how it has been the best reception they've ever been to. I honestly think a lot of it boils down to The Fable... So from the bottom of our hearts - THANK YOU! You Charlotte have been so great from the moment I came into the venue to check it out last year, nothing ever being a problem and you always being so prompt and efficient to answer any questions we had. We would love others to know just how perfect this venue is for a fun, exciting and perfect London wedding :) - Francesca and Matt 30.01.2016
