We had an 80th birthday function and their function room has no soft furnishings so sounds reverberated and increased. With only 45 of us there it was deafening and everyone was yelling to talk. I think those with hearing aids turned them off!!
On inspection we had noticed a screen dominating one wall and projector on the ceiling so went to considerable effort to put together a slide show - but they wanted an extra $200 on the night to use it. So we had this ugly blank screen backdrop and everyone peering at the laptop to see the photos. Considering we spent $3k there that night I thought that was OTT.
The meal was lovely but the stingiest $45 buffet I have ever had. One mixed green, one mixed root vegetables and two meats which they ran out of. Desert was a served portion of cake - for anyone who wanted seconds we had a 3 tiered birthday cake !!.
Disappointing for an event we really wanted special.
