It was all easy going with them, and they pretty much arranged everything or us! Everything was catered for there, it was just a great place to celebrate and so easy and fun!

29 Feb 2020

Great vibe great food, excellent venue space and versatility. Helpful wedding planner, service on the night needed more wait staff but other than that we can’t complain. Everyone was wowed by the venue, but own decorations are needed, so it’s a bit pricey.

22 Feb 2020

Great venue but be prepared to have to share the Penthouse with other functions (2 rooms on one floor)!
