I booked this venue for my boss's retirement event. It was fantastic. The setting is lovely, driving down the road in the grounds to reach the hall. We had around 100 guests and had a buffet meal, with both hot and cold food. Food was excellent, and the staff cleared away so quickly and efficiently, we barely noticed that they were there! Same efficienty applied to getting drinks and serving teas and coffees. They organised the tables so that there was no queue for food! We had fireworks and booked their DJ. The staff worked so hard with us so that we could arrange a presentation with the use of a projector and use their facilities for sound and power with the fireworks. It rained (sadly) but they even had some umbrellas to hand. The DJ was brill - nothing was too much trouble for him! The event was seamless, with all my email queries dealt with instantly. I cannot fault the whole evening. Some guests stayed the night and the rooms were lovely with everything that you needed (loved the soft quilts and pillows!). This was my first time organising such an event and I am delighted we used Swinfen as it made my job less stressful! Thanks to all involved. You worked so hard.
