    Had a great night out here for the YMCA Youth Matters Awards. Congratulations to all who attended. Lovely venue.

    A very different but exciting venue, giving a circus vibe but works in a corporate environment too. One area is a socialising pen, adjoining the tent itself.

    Our annual Christmas party was held here this year. We had a prosecco reception although I felt like I had to go hunting for it as the trays never left the bar 🤬 The starter was nice veg option was some kind of mac n cheese and other option was a risotto not sure why that wasnt veg as tasted veg 🙄 Wondered to the bar before the main course and what a shambles that was 🤦🏽‍♀️ Spent over half an hour trying to order maybe 6 drinks which consisted of vodka lemonade, gin n tonic and a jack Daniel's 🤯🤯🤯 Back to the table for mains, veg was a mushroom pie which was awful, dry, no sauce and just plain and simply awful, luckily I eat chicken and we had some no shows on our table so I swapped my plate for a chicken which was actually ok. 😉 Dessert was sticky toffee pudding and was actually very nice. 😍 The show was good After that the night became a blur as spent it at the bar. 🤯🤪 But what I do remember is the prices at the bar were inconsistent and depending on who took your order you could get a bargain as paying full price was expensive!!

    The venue was freezing cold, the food served was very bad and the music was far from entertaining. I am giving 2 not 1 star because of nice staff
