staff night out

The Narnia Venue was beautiful and we were blown away. The wine is overpriced for the quality but it was cold and there were ice buckets available for white. Tap water was available which is a nice change. Food was excellent but LATE (main course arrived at our table at 9,50pm) therefore lots of... read more

We had our work Christmas party here in December 2015 and unfortunately I was not impressed. The Narnia theme could only be described as subtle. The Christmas trees in the room weren't even decorated. The food was mediocre and fairly bland. Choice for starter was duck pate which came with packet melba toast or Iceberg salad...isn't that just lettuce on... More

Great evening, fun and lively - food delivered to dining table on time and hot !! Narnia themed characters, and good to have a photo opportunity for the party guests. More staff needed on the bar at the start of the event please - as long wait for drinks......

Before the wedding we mostly liaised with Rosie who always replied very promptly to our queries which was very much appreciated. She was always very friendly and helpful. Just before the... More

Massive thank you to all at Trunkwell house for making our wedding absolutely perfect.

We were talked through what would be available on the day by our planner Lauren and she helped us tailor the... More

We attended a family wedding here yesterday, luckily the weather held and the ceremony was held outside and was lovely. The food was cooked on a bbq and couldn't be faulted. A hot and cold buffet was laid on around nine with two huge fresh fruit platters. From what I could see the staff did all they could to make... More

A big thank you to the event team who coordinated our nephews wedding. The setting was glorious every detail was perfect. The marque looked beautiful with lights that blended in with the wedding colours. Thank you for making the event so special.

We have been here three times with our company for our Christmas party. The food, entertaininment and attention to detail is great, as all the organisation is taken care of for you. There is a different theme each year; last Christmas was The Great Gatsby and it was perfectly themed. A professional photographer is on hand to capture the moments,... More

Gorgeous and cosy place with beautiful surroundings. Great for a Wedding venue. One criticism though: Could do with a spring clean on the drapes in the gazebo/wedding function room. They are littered with dead insects which is really not very appealing!
