Funeral Wake- celebrating life

This is a fantastic venue. Lovely place for celebrating - room itself is very clean and well set out. Not one person had a bad thing to say- it was all good. Also had the Buffett menu and it was lovely with plenty of food. This was a great find and would use again. Staff were all great too.
