Hello. We came to eat with you about 3 weeks ago. I just wanted to say thanks so much for an amazing meal and the additional complimentary touches you had provided on the day. We loved coming back, the food was delicious and we'll certainly be coming again soon. My brother and his family loved the place and it felt just like it was our wedding day all over again! Thanks so much! Sunil Sawant
Just a quick note to thank you all very much for a great day on Saturday. I loved it and my guests did too. Those who had been before said they never tire of it and those that hadn't wondered what had taken them so long. It was perfect and the sun even shone. So thank you and your team for all your/their work. Kind regards Megan
