Reading some of the reviews made us a little nervous about booking our Civil Ceremony reception here, family and friends were coming from far and wide; but we were working to a bit of a tight budget as we wanted The Maldives Honeymoon more than a 'flash expensive venue!'
The new Manager, Michael Butler, after a bit of an uneasy start (I speak my mind you see!!) was very obliging and even changed his day off to run the order of ceremony on the day (27th February 2014) There were a couple of very minor issues, which didn't really spoil our day, and he more than made up for this by not charging for a couple of 'extras' we ordered....and a complimentary room too!! Michael was a real credit to the place and really tried incredibly hard. he contended with new staff, some who were not very experienced but he did a sterling job keeping it all together!! Sorry to say the new wedding co-ordinator wasn't brilliant - Michael did a much better job, and gave the impression he really cared - that counts for a lot!!
If you're looking for a reception (or full ceremony) then we don't think you can beat the value....it's the best locally!!! The food was good, the service overall was good, atmosphere good; although the place is definitely ready for a full refurb (having said that the rooms were clean and VERY good!) as the downstairs looked very tired - but then it is a busy place - so invest the money Green king!!!
Overall very pleased, and we'll definitely be popping back regularly for coffee and cake, again bargain at £2.95 each!!
Well done Michael - a credit to the Hospitality Industry!
