Everything was perfect from the room to the breakfast. My friend had her wedding reception here. The drinks reception was fab and the food and hall layout was excellent. Will stay again for sure. Maybe we will bring the kids the next time.

The food was excellent, wine reasonable, and our server, Rosie, made the night even more enjoyable with great service and stories.
