The best day of our lives! We was well looked after from the day we first visited to the last dance on our wedding night. All our guests complimented how amazing the venue was. No job was to big or small to accommodate to. The bar was well priced and no one had to wait for drinks and we have a lot of big drinkers who attended. It ran smoothly from start to finish with no problems. The team was outstanding in making it all perfect and we can't thank you enough. Holly & Ryan xxx

We had our wedding reception here on 22 December 18. The venue was perfect especially for a winter wedding and loads of our guests commented to say how lovely it was. Nirvana and the rest of the team were really helpful and accommodating all the way through the planning so that we weren’t worried about anything going wrong on the day. The ops staff were great, especially the bar staff who were really friendly to everyone and no one had to wait long to be served. All in all we had the best day and we couldn’t have been happier with the venue - thank you!
