    Wonderful day thanks to the QMUL staff

    Leaving a gushing review is the least we can do in return for the wonderful hospitality you provided us and our guests with. The food and service both got rave reviews and the brickwall guestbook (jonnyconcrete.com) you recommended was the most amazing hit - so East London! QMUL couldn't have done more for us. Thank you!

    Loved the beautiful venue and we were really happy with the waiting staff. Best thing about Saran was that she was really thorough and very chilled out, never stressed and kept us calm.

    Thanks a million for all of your hard work in making sure we had an wonderful wedding day and the card we found upon return from honeymoon. We were so happy with how everything came together and had a great day. We haven't had the official photographs yet but our friends have taken loads of pics and the Octagon looks great in them.

    ‘Thank you so much for your help, support and patience with us and for us. We really couldn’t have pulled it all off without you. We can’t believe how quickly the day disappeared but we’re reminded how good the venue and food looked in the amazing photos.’
