We had arranged for refreshments to be served here after my father-in-law's funeral and can only say we were ripped off. We paid £7.95 a head for 50 people and were presented with a couple of trays of sandwiches that had obviously been made for some time as they were curling up at the corners and drying out, very cheap sausage rolls which tasted disgusting and the cheapest possible swiss rolls and scones (cut into halves with butter and jam to make it look like there were a lot of them). They just didn't provide decent quality food let alone the fact that had 50 people turned up then it is doubtful there would have been enough food. The coffee was a joke - someone had to ask the staff to put more coffee in as you could literally see the bottom of the cup. They made no effort to make the room look inviting; not even pulling across the curtain that splits the room into two and one of the staff members was still cleaning mirrors when guests were arriving. The room hadn't even been cleaned properly...it looked like it was some time since it was vaccumed. In fact the whole place looks tired and grimey. Due to the occasion we really didn't feel like complaining on the day but felt we were ripped off big time and would certainly not recommend anyone having a function here!
