"I cannot praise your establishment enough for helping me to host a truly superb night on Saturday. Absolutely everything was as I had asked. The room set up was exceptional.  The food was quite amazing considering that you were catering for 350 guests. Also, every last one of the staff fulfilled their role to a lovely standard. They were efficient, courteous and what’s more, smiling. Please accept the highest compliments for helping us to have such a successful evening."  Denis Stubley,  Festival Chairman , Yorkshire North and East Ridings Freemasons
