The service we were given by every single member of staff was friendly, professional and flawless. The guests with dietary requirements commented on how safe and relaxed they were made to feel.

"We just wanted to pass on a massive massive thanks to you, Shirna and your team, you made the day truly special and faultless! We couldn't have asked for nicer, more gracious hosts or venue! I was so worried about how the day would fall into place after everything that has happened the past year and a half, but from the moment we arrived at the venue everything just started to work and we was hit by a wave of calm, your team took over and it was like a weight lifted from our shoulders. Also thank you for the extra care you all have taken and the personal touches you have given us! (and for helping me by carrying my dress before the ceremony) It is all the little things like this that will also stick with us in making the day so wonderful and memorable. You made us feel like one in a million! Everyone there yesterday commented on how beautiful the Venue was, how accommodating, friendly and helpful the staff were, and how beyond delicious the food was!! (a few saying they would return one day) (my friend has just booked you as a venue for her wedding next year and she was also floored by how perfect everything was and how smooth the day went, she's even more excited now and full of ideas!) Despite Covid and all the changes and postponements you, Shirna and your team have been amazing in making it as easy and smooth as it could possibly have been. We really really appreciate everything that you and your team have done for us. We will be back for visits in the future for sure!! "
