Chris needs to realise that people coming for a function ( wedding, engagement, corporate ) that he charges a lot of money for, expect be welcomed, not treated with contempt, he is the host, and therefore should act as one.
We attended a function recently, and, if it wasn't for guests acting as function co-ordinators it would not have gone as well as he had previously promised. Basically, we didn't see him, and after reading the new reviews, I am not surprised....
Anna, and the wonderful staff in the kitchen and bar deserve a medal, they were very helpful and I hope Kingsbrook can survive the arrogance that Chris displays towards his guests.
It is a magnificent setting, the food is lovely, but, at no point does he deserve any credit towards how the function went.
Chris, If you don't want to be in hospitality, don't take peoples money, don't treat people with the disdain that you do, go retire somewhere and let someone run the beautiful place that you created, and seem to have lost all interest in, such a shame.
You promise so much on your website, and delivered so little, Andre Ursini and his wedding at Kingsbrook featured in SA Life and varied Bridal Mags was quite misleading. Or maybe they employed people to clean up the Orangery, restaurant, and outdoor area????
Would I suggest an event there, prob not... which is a huge shame ,as it is spectacular.
Hey, take a risk, just employ an event co-ordinator, who, as in my experience, Chris will just mock further.
