Being responsible for the office Christmas bash for 55 staff was a bit of a task but from the start of the organising right up until the end Youssef was available for any questions I had and was on hand during our event to ensure that everything went without a hitch. The tables were decorated beatifically and the food was hot and lots of it. The service we received was excellent. Below are comments from some of the bosses received afterwards -
"Other than one member of staff, who was off hand and did not bring any more drinks when asked, I thought all the other staff were very efficient and polite – especially those in the food serving area.
The food was of a good quality and the portions were generous.
I’m not usually the biggest fan of “The Whately” but this was (surprisingly) good. 9/10!
Another one "The Christmas Party was very good and the food and service at Whately was equally good. I did not hear any complaints on my table"
And finally "I also thought that the venue, service and food was very good on Friday. I think the venue worked well in that we were all in one room and on circular tables. I would say repeat it for next year."
Looks like we will be booking for 2014 - thank you Youssef and his staff, keep up the good work.
