Great venue and we had a lovely family wedding there. Only one issue came to light...
As an evening guest, I arrived at seven as my invitation said and discovered the speeches were still going on. I sought advice from a member of staff, the manager I hear. He took my inquiry as a complaint and decided to give me a lecture on the variables affecting the timing of weddings. He introduced it as a three point lecture and in the middle of the first point, I decided as useful as his information was, I was happy with my career at the moment and didn't really need the lecture, and so left to sit in the bar, where I spent quite some time hearing him moan about me rather loudly. I gather he offered other guests similar information on the hospitality industry, such as the inability to change a guests meal request and how he knew how to cut a cake a Sam he does it every week. Sadly, I fear he is not happy with his job in the hospitality industry and maybe lecturing should be his choice of career.
All of that said, the wedding was lovely and the rest of the staff were a joy. Such a lovely venue too. The grumpy manager is more entertaining that insulting really.
