“ We had our wedding lunch here and at a very uncertain time,
Clare and Amber were amazing right from the beginning.

On the day, all the staff were so helpful. Nothing was too much
trouble for Amber, and the service was impeccable.

All our guests loved the food and we couldn’t have
chosen a more beautiful setting.
Thank you so much, Amber, Clare and your wonderful team.
We really appreciate you giving us a day to remember.❤️ ”
