They helped us organise a post-funeral reception at short notice in their function room (Sabrina suite). Coped well with vague estimate of numbers – about 50 people turned up.

Excellent tea, coffee and light buffet. Coped well with gluten allergy request. Suite had its own bar and adjacent toilets. Access from suite out onto sunny terrace area.

All calmly, efficiently and sympathetically organised by Margot. We were all impressed.
