Jane Williams' Party on 7th August 2021

"Hi Mel, just wanted to say thanks for a great evening.   The DJ was brilliant, the food was great and please pass on special thanks to the lady on the bar (whose name I can’t recall) for keeping everything going and was brilliant with organising a present table and reminding me to cut the cake.  Great venue and great evening, Jane


"I just want to thank you for such a fantastic evening and stay. It's very rare that i ever decide to do something for me that i really want to do but decided on my 40th i didn't want a party and to fill a hall with people that i only see once in a blue moon or just to make up numbers.After meeting with Mel and she suggesting the dinner dance with my own suite i was thrilled this meant that i could really have it how i wanted right down to every detail!  Kirsty was great in the evening, not having been around beforehand to know what had been arranged she swiftly changed things as they arose and always checked in with me before doing anything".  Hayley Munday, Essex


"£25 for a 3 course meal isn't much these days and i wasn't sure what to expect but you completely exceeded my expectations. The food was great! Breakfast too!"


Mr & Mrs McDonagh said this about their Golden wedding anniversary:
"To the event team I &  my wife would like to thank you all for making our wedding anniversary a great success and particularly Mel,David and also Robert Who we originally made the arrangements with The food was excellent and would like to thank the chef and kitchen staff not forgetting the waiters and waitresses and particularly Kirsty who organised and supervised the night excellently.
Many thanks"
