Comments from hirers:

“We held a party in the Chandler Room to celebrate my 70th birthday. Many of our guests commented on how attractive, light and airy the room is, especially when the weather enabled the bi-fold doors to be open to the outside area, as it was for us.

The room has everything you need, is easy to set up, has good AV equipment and the kitchen is pleasant to use and well equipped. We had disabled guests, and the facilities (ramp, toilets etc) enabled them to have a comfortable day too.”

“We all had a great afternoon and would highly recommend the room to anyone wanting a venue that offers good value, is well equipped and is most attractive.”
