Extremely disappointed with rudeness and unwillingness of the manager to deal with my issue on during my event. Rude staff and disappointing service. Would be very unlikely to return, do not host your event here!

Just a beautiful building. The history of the place is fantastic and all on display for visitors.
We came here twice, once for a party and it was so amazing that I booked some rooms for work here too.
Great service, lovely staff, great food and refreshments.

Attended the Christmas party night here on 13th December with work colleagues. This was our second time here - we enjoyed it so much last time, we decided to come back! We had prosecco on arrival and followed the table plan to find our tables right at the front. The tables were decorated beautifully and the hall is stunningly lit - a gorgeous setting. The bar didn't open for about 10 mins after we sat at our table and then of course there was a huge queue but it was easy to get served after that and prices were what you'd expect. My friend was massively overcharged for a wine glass (?) of blackcurrant squash but this was efficiently handled by the floor manager who apologised and delivered her a large jug of juice which lasted the rest of the night. The food was served by silver service waiters and was hot and of reasonable quality for the number of covers being catered for. We thought the smear of mash and the single sliced sprout were very amusing but I think this was more about being posh than mean as none of us were still hungry after eating. The DJ was good and lots of people were up dancing. I would definitely attend another event in this stunning venue but it was quite expensive at nearly £50, £5 more than last year so not suitable for everyone's budget.

We held our works xmas party here on Friday 13th December. I was in awe of the place when we initially booked it. When we arrived on the day the place looked amazing, Xmas decorations were lovely. We asked for all the lighting to be red, which was stunning.. The staff were amazing, from Fran who we booked the venue through to the 3 guys overseeing the party, Neil, Simon and Salvadore.. They were very attentive and could not do enough for us.. Well done guys.. We had over 250 attending the party and have no one has said anything negative.. Such a stunning place to hold an event.. Well done to you all at The Monastery.. We loved it all
