All the staff were so professional and they made sure that all of my ideas, plans and instructions went exactly the way I had wanted and planned. Many of my guests had said it was the best wedding they had ever attended and had also made comments about the professionalism of the serving staff.

Everyone was so responsive and no request was too small. Staff should be commended on their professional and friendly attitude – they were wonderful.

Great facilities that can host a wide range of events. Spacious, clean and versatile event area and a great outdoor entrance area also for pre-entry seating. Eternal MMA and Boxing events here are very well done and accessible.
