“Thank you to you and your team for a lovely evening last Saturday. I have had loads of positive feedback from the revellers about how good the dinner and dance was and a lot of that praise must be fed back to you as a well run functions venue is paramount to a successful event.”

“Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for Saturday. It was the most perfect day, from start to finish, the weather being the start of it, then the setting, and then the ceremony, and the reception in the lovely marquee afterwards. Everything went like clockwork, all the guests remarked on the lovely food and the organisation of your staff and just how professional they were. A real team, and Pops was the trooper behind the bar for sure!!! A great time was had by all, the only downside being it had to end  It was a pleasure dealing with you and it won’t stop there, as I am thinking of having my 50th at Nurstead next year.”
