It was good, however they didn't leave the food long enough and would take it before people had time to eat.

Our experience with The Grande Reception was really good. There was an unfortunate technical issue that they were very apologetic about. They went above and beyond in rectifying the situation for us and in the end it all worked out perfectly.

Everyone commented on the food, it was really good! I asked a lot of questions but the staff were very friendly and happy to help us. This meant I felt completely comfortable on the day. They had so many options and would be able to cater for anyone's tastes. We loved that we also got to leave in a car that was backed up into the actual reception room, everyone thought was so awesome!
