Bridal Shower - December 2021

Hi Kate,

Hope you’re well! I just wanted to say thank you so much to you and the rest of the events team for all your efforts in helping organise Mariems bridal shower. 

It was such a lovely day and the bride was overwhelmed with all the details and how nice everything was. The staff did an amazing job on the day, they were so attentive and helpful. They definitely went above and beyond on the day and it was noticed by all those that attended. The food was delicious and overall just a great day. 

It was a beautiful space and definitely one I’ll keep in mind for feature events! 

Thanks again and Best wishes for the holidays and the new year to all the team. 

Kind regards,

60th Birthday Lunch - November 2021

Hi Kate,

We cannot thank you and everyone involved enough for the great success of my sister’s party.

Everything was superb: the venue, the food, the staff and everyone at the party said how good everything was.

I know that anyone attending would recommend the venue and tell friends how much they enjoyed it.

Many thanks for all your attention. We really appreciated it.

Mary and Rona.

Golden Wedding - September 2021

Good Morning Lynn,

Thank you very much for all you did to help us put on our Golden Wedding lunch yesterday - we were both delighted with how well it went, and we enjoyed ourselves enormously.  The venue was just right, food was excellent, and everyone there said the same thing.  Our thanks in particular go to Sarah and her staff who helped the afternoon go so smoothly.  They were excellent, both efficient and unobtrusive.

Thank you too for all your help and advice, which was much appreciated.

Funeral Tea - September 2021

Hi Kate,

On behalf of my brother and me I wanted to thank you for a lovely venue, tasty and very well presented buffet and great staff team for my mum's funeral tea.  She loved Cafe at House for an Art Lover and had both her 80th and 90th Birthdays there so we thought it would be a fitting tribute for her final send off and you all helped us make that possible.

Thank you so much,


Engagement Party - September 2021

Hi Kate,

Just wanted to say thank you so much for everything last night. The staff, Amy in particular, were fantastic and so attentive and helpful. It all ran so smoothly - like clockwork. Our guests have been so complimentary about the venue and the food, we were so impressed with the quality of everything and the polenta sticks got so much love in particular! Thanks so much for being such a fab venue, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking to host an event. Definitely worth the wait and the multiple postponements. Thanks for being so helpful and accommodating over the past 18 months. We had such a fantastic time and will have wonderful memories to last a long time. 

Thanks again,
