"I have not been to the Memorial Hall for many many years and was very impressed with the work that has been done to turn this into an excellent venue."
Mr H ~ October 2018
"We were most impressed with not only the venue but the helpfulness of the staff throughout. Not only on the evening but also insofar as the actual hiring of the venue.
The bar staff were not only helpful but were all smiles and nothing was too much for them to assist in ensuring that we all had a very pleasant evening. As everything went very smoothly it ensured that we had a very enjoyable and relaxed evening."
