I've had so many compliments from guests on how amazing the food was...
"We held our Wedding here and it was the best day. All of the staff we dealt with on the day were professional, accommodating, and friendly. In the lead up to the event, incredibly helpful and probably put up with a lot more than she needs to to help us organise! Even on our initial visit, a direct and informative approach was one of the most impressive things about the venue itself. The venue itself was perfect for the size of the party we had, and it was great to have both an in indoor and an outdoor seating option for the people who weren't so keen on dancing. I've also had so many compliments from guests on how amazing the food was, wish I could have eaten more of it! Can not recommend the venue and the team highly enough to anyone thinking of holding an event in Warwickshire, just want to do the whole thing again!!! Thank you so much to you all, Mr and Mrs McDonald."
