“STAFF CHRISTMAS PARTY 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We decided to try The Borough Arms for our Christmas Party this year and we were very impressed! The hotel itself is very warm and welcoming in hospitality and decor. Our party of sixteen was held in The Ostler Restaurant, the service was excellent and the food delicious! After our three course meal,warm mince pies and coffee/tea (plus a glass of wine or two) we danced the night away with DJ Andy from Signal Radio spinning the tunes!It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and we all had a fab night! Super venue, food, staff and great value for money. Highly recommend! Will definitely return. Thanks to Mr Sheikh, Emma and staff from Marie Smith.

The Christmas meal was of high standard and,was excellent value for money. The staff were very attentive to the individual dietary needs of some of our guests. The disco was good and played a great range of current music. We've had Christmas do's here before and can never fault them!!

We held a public exhibition at the Borough Arms Hotel late November 2012. Me and my colleague stayed at the hotel the night before the exhibition. The hotel staff were very helpful and ensured our stay and exhibition went smoothly. The hotel is in a good location, 5 minute walk from the high street, and has a comfortable bar. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay.

I organised a Christmas Lunch, which took place this week. for a party of over 40 people at the Borough Arms.

This is the third time that this venue has been used by us and it certainly will not be the last. With our groups numbers being quite large we managed to go into one of the hotels large function rooms and obviously the Christmas decorations are their to make it feel welcoming and seasonal.

The staff have always been excellent and friendly and have done everything in their power to make certain that everything runs smoothly and no problem is too much to tackle.

The meal was well presented and delivered to the tables quickly and with a smile.

The food was of good quality and value for money. Special food requirements are also taken care of as long as they are told beforehand.

Every year our groups comments are positive about the venue and they look forward to coming back again next year.

I have no problems recommending this venue for going to have a party and/or a meal.

Room Tip: Talk to the staff about your requirements before organising any type of visit.

The Borough Arms was the perfect venue for our daughters Engagement party.
Mr Sheikh , the Manager ,made it all a very enjoyable experience as he guided me through the menu and the fine details.

The rooms were lovely and looked beautiful with the chair covers.
The food was amazing, well presented and tasted fantastic.

The music was just right and the DJ was very thoughtful.

Thank you too to the bar staff who were very efficient and professional.

Eveyone was happy.
I look forward to coming back again for a meal in the restaurant.

So well done for making the night one of the best I have been to.
Best wishes to Mr Sheikh and your staff who are a credit to you.

The Borough help us host a family party on 14th October to celebrate my Dad's birthday and also my Mum and Dad's wedding anniversary. I organised this from Oxford with many an E-mail to Simon who could not have been more helpful. The food was lovely, the staff were friendly, and the guests were happy. What more could we have asked for? We would certainly use the Borough for more family events.
