REVIEW FROM CLIENTS
Here is some of the unsolicited feedback we’re had from visitors….
Super work, guys, on our recent product launch. The consensus was it all went off without a hitch. I know Gary our MD wanted to give Carol a special mention for the extra efort she put in.
I was on leave yesterday, hence the tardiness of our thank you to you and your team for your professionalism and helpfulness, as well as willingness to accommodate our requests, in the run-up to and during our team event on Tuesday. The venue was perfect, food delicious and plentiful, bar staff efficient and helpful, technical equipment and sound (bar one mic which had run out of battery) more than suitable, and Tim an amazing support on the night. It was a great relief just to be able to turn up and know that everything was prepared for as we had requested. We all very much enjoyed the event and the Warren is firmly in our sights for our next team event.
Thanks again Carol, it has been a pleasure dealing with you.

Thank you so much guys for the help and support with my wedding plans. The whole thing went perfectly and I had been SOOO anxious. Special thanks to Carol. Melani Beguin
Just wanted to say a really big “thank you” to you both for all your supporrt and help in making our wedding day go so smoothly. We had a fantastic day and everything went extremely well. Perhaps we could ask you to pass on our thanks to the other organisers who provided such great support also, incl. Mike on the day.
We will certainly recommend The Warren to anyone else who wants to organise a party or celebration.
Once again, many thanks.
Ron & Julie
I’ve used the Warren several times now for meetings away from the office. It is a perfect location for us – such a peaceful and relaxed setting to focus on the business at hand, without the constant interruptions that happen in the office. Dillian Breakspear

If you are looking to hold a party with around 50 guests the Hayes Room is the ideal place. The doors to the side open onto a patio area with a large umbrella to shield you from the sun (or rain !!).

The large window overlooks the bowling green.
