    Wow! wow! My hubby and i got married here on the 26/05/17 and what a wonderful day it was. From the start of all the preparations a year ago until the day itself, nothing was too much trouble for them. We had a coach load of guests arrive on the Thurs. night and check in was faultless. Our guests enjoyed a meal on arrival and they couldn't praise you all enough.
    On the day itself everything fell in to place fabulously, the food was amazing, the staff were fantastic and so friendly.We thank Georgie, Olga, Mark and Dave for everything and making our day fabulous! We couldn't have wished it to have gone any better. Thank you so much to all of you and we will see you on the 22/12/17 for our annual Xmas party.

    We had our wedding and reception here on 23rd July 2017 and it was amazing! Our wedding co-ordinator Georgie was fantastic from start to finish- she thought of every tiny detail that we could easily have missed and made wedding planning so much easier! The day itself went without a hitch and all the team worked so hard to make sure everything was perfect. The food was lovely and our guests have commented on how fantastic the whole day was. A special thank you also to Val, Mark and Dave who ran things for us on the day and made our visions come to life. Our day was perfect!
