What a wonderful place! We had a 50th Wedding anniversary party for 100 people in the Ashdown Suite and it was a fantastic evening with fabulous food and wonderful service. Darren was so helpful with the planning and organising prior to the event and on the day Darren and Natalie made sure everything was exactly as we wanted. Everything we asked for was never a problem and our guests had a choice of five dishes on each course all served as requested. Thank to Darren, Natalie & all the staff who made it such a wonderful time.
