At last I am I able to write to thank you and all the staff for making my birthday celebration such an enjoyable occasion. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the meal, especially the vegetarians, I know I certainly did.

Thank you for all your help leading up to my Party. Would you kindly convey to all the Staff my deep gratitude and (also my 4 children's) for all the kindness and efficiency shown by all concerned. We all had a wonderful time and heartfelt congratulations to the Chef etc. for the delicious food. Hopefully we will meet again next year!! Keep well and fondest wishes to everyone.

Just wanted to thank you and your colleagues for making Gill's birthday celebration a real success. The food, as usual, was delicious and the service provided was beyond compare. Everyone in attendance was highly impressed by the professionalism displayed by the hotel staff. Once again, many thanks for making the day special and leaving us eager to return for more!

‘I wanted to say a big thank you to you and all your staff for helping make my mum’s birthday celebrations a huge hit. We managed to keep the party a surprise, the staff played a huge part in that on the day. I have received numerous thank you’s for a lovely afternoon particularly from the gluten free ladies. They thoroughly enjoyed their food, it made them feel part of the celebrations. As I remembered your service, food and ambience was exceptional, it will be an afternoon that we’ll de dinning out on for a while.

I would just like to say thank you for organising my Mother in law's 80th birthday celebration on Saturday evening, everyone had a wonderful evening and Tricia (my mother in law) really enjoyed herself. The food was very nice everyone really enjoyed that too. Think it's going to be a good contender for my father in law"s 80th celebration in January. I will be in touch.
(Catherine Harden, October 2017)
We thought that we should write a brief note conveying our thanks for looking after us so well at our mother's 90th birthday party at the weekend. The hotel reception room we were allocated was perfect for our needs and the food/drink was also nicely presented, tasty and appropriate for the occasion. Although we were fortunate with the weather and the grounds were very well used throughout the afternoon, the event was immeasurably improved by the friendly, thoughtful, helpful and entirely positive attitude of every member of staff we encountered. We did all we could to show our appreciation on the day, but still wanted to formally record our thanks. Would you also please pass our particular praise to the cake maker you recommended? Her cake was beautiful exceeding our expectations in both looks and taste - the daffodil decoration alone would have won 'Star Baker' on 'Great British Bake Off'. In short a perfect occasion much enjoyed by everyone including the birthday 'girl' who earlier in the day claimed that she would rather spend the day at home alone! We already made tentative enquiries about repeating the booking for her 100th and we will be in touch early in 2027!
(Malcom Rose, August 2017)
We just wanted to drop a quick email to you following the event to thank you so much for all of your hard work in pulling this family birthday celebration together for us. Everything went off perfectly and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, which was such a relief to me! Of course they didn't realise the amount of time that went in to the planning, but all that is insignificant now as it went better than I could have ever hoped for! I would also like you to send our thanks to the kitchen ... the food was outstanding. And the service was impeccable, so a big thank you to the waiters and waitresses. The quality of the hotel, service and food were all massive talking points at the table and still are now after the event. We will absolutely be visiting again ... it was such a treat ... huge thanks to everyone involved in making our day so special.
