COMPOSTION | Nerida Ramsay (May2017)... “I just wanted to pass on our thanks to you and your team for the great service we received for our event we held last week. Everyone was so helpful and friendly and nothing was a problem so that was appreciated. Not once did we have to chase staff to do things they were there on time to change over food etc it was a brief of fresh air to work in a venue that was so organised and professional. Also thanks to the chef and kitchen team as the food looked amazing and was obviously very good as platters were cleared and we appreciated your flexibility with the additions and changes. We look forward to having the opportunity to host another event there in the future.
