On the 29th of December my daughter and son-in-law held their blessing and reception at the Square Tower. What an amazing memorable day. Steve and Julia (the owners) were exceptional. They helped so much with the planning of the day, but on the actual day they were with us at every step of the day, thus making the occasion so... More

We had our wedding at the Square Tower on 16th June 2014 – this review should have been done ages ago but is somewhat belated due to a combination of suddenly being deployed to work abroad after the ceremony and then forgetfulness! Anyway, excuses over with, it has to be said that the venue is superb and just what we... More

As soon as I walked into The Square Tower I knew this was exactly the perfect place for such an event. The Tower has a fantastic atmosphere, adults and children alike will marvel at the beauty of the... More

I felt welcomed and nothing was too much trouble. I would pay more than what was charged. In fact loved it... More

Quaint and classy this is a fabulous venue to indulge in an authentic vintage high tea experience with delicious homemade food and excellent, friendly service. A massive thank you to Julia, Steve and your lovely ladies for looking after us all so well – even though we added a small dog and a few extra bodies in at the last... More

We put on a little one-day art, music and poetry festival in the Square Tower. It was the ideal venue for all sorts of reasons. We're going to do another one on 4 May 2015. This is a unique venue. It is used for weddings, which must be just wonderful, music events - check out the Square Roots promotions evenings... More
