Private hire feedback


Please find below a selection of feedback we have received from our events:

"I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for all your hard work, not just on the day, but in the run up to the event. Ashley, you were always very helpful during the year of planning. The day was a huge hit. I can honestly say that I was absolutely thrilled with everything. I thought the service was immaculate. Our VIPs felt very special. The food was superb. They have never had a choice of menu before so that was quite a novelty and the food at previous events, at least in the last five years, has been dreadful. I knew that anything would be better than what we had had previously, but what we were served on the day truly surpassed that. It was better food than I had at my 5 star hotel wedding. Every one of my guests that had dietary requirements have mentioned how great their food was too. I have to say that they were all talking about the slates under their pudding...very Masterchef!!"

Julie White, Ladies Circle

"My husband and I would like to say a special big Thank You for all the hard work you and your staff put in to make our Ruby Wedding party a success. We had a great night and lots of super memories. Our guests made many comments on how good the evening was and what a great buffet we had. They also commented on what a great venue it was. Only complaint we had was it wasn’t long enough! It just flew in. I guess that’s what happens when you are enjoying yourselves! We have lots of great memories to last us the next 40 years!!!! Please pass on our thanks to all the staff involved."

Helen and Tam Noon

"I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your staff for making our day such a success. Everything went smoothly and the food was fabulous. Your staff really surpassed themselves in making the day such a success and you should rightly be very proud of them. All the families couldn’t speak highly enough of the venue and all of them told me it was a great day."

Elizabeth Maitland, Meningitis Trust

"We had an absolutely fabulous time. I’m not sure that the animals in the zoo enjoyed the same experience when some of the guests started to sing in the early hours accompanied by the pipes, as the apes were seen with their eyes closed and hands over their ears. All members of your staff were outstanding and made sure that we had such a good time, which can’t have been easy given the many strange aspects of a military dinner. For once the weather also helped and it was lovely standing on the lawn, glass in hand looking out over Edinburgh. So the menu, staff and location were all superb. Very many thanks again."

Colin Voogth, Transport Squaron RLC
