My wife and I will now have beautiful memories of
Hi there, my wife and I had an absolutely incredible wedding reception at The Nightingale Room in The Grand Central and would highly recommend this venue all day long. Manager Liam and his team pulled out all the stops to ensure that we had the perfect time, there was nothing that was too much to ask of them. Every request was handled in a calm, organised and professional manner that instilled confidence in my wife and I that we had made the right choice for our wedding reception venue. The food in particular is worthy of special mention too; we fed 65 people and were provided with a varied menu which was inclusive of vegetarians, pescatarians, gluten-free and diary-free and each and every one of or guests' was incredibly happy with their meal (as well and the buffet in the evening). Please do enquire and check this place out. My wife and I will now have beautiful memories of our time at The Grand Central and we hope that future couple will do too for many years to come! Thanks, Dan & Sarah x
