Last night we had a fantastic time celebrating my partners 50th. The whole evening was brilliant and such good value. The staff were attentive, pleasant, polite and happy which made the whole atmosphere fantastic. The choice of food was spot on and tasted fabulous. It was great to be able to dance afterwards too (so rare nowadays).

I celebrated my wedding day here with the Hostess, and they helped make our day magical. The venue was decorated beautifully, to perfection.
