Venue Testimonials

Fab catering and service for our wedding. Loved every course and the staff treated us so well. They were efficient, kind and had great communication from all the team leading up and during the wedding day itself.

Newly refurbished livery hall. A very well-thought-out blend of traditional and modern. Interesting tapestry in the Guild dining hall. Very friendly and efficient staff. Disabled access to all floors.
