"First of all I would like to say thank you to everybody involved. As a company, we were so pleased with the outcome of the event. From day one everything ran faultlessly, we have been so impressed. The service has been outstanding, both Amy and Natasha have been the easiest people to work with and couldn’t have done more. The venue was absolutely perfect for our Christmas party and the food was amazing."
