Testimonials From Our Customers

* * * * * 

I am hyper critical (part of the job!) but I could not fault a thing on Saturday evening. Your staff were so friendly, personable and accommodating. The bar staff were on their A-game – nobody waited for a drink and what lovely guys there were too. The food was served hot. The room looked beautiful. We received amazing feedback from all our guests! The amount of money we raised on the night was INSANE! It wouldn’t have been possible without everything coming together, and that is thanks to all your hard work!

Thank you Martin and Carol especially for helping us every step of the way from the start of the planning, to having to answer queries from hundreds of emails to the many meetups we had as we really appreciate how much care you put into us. I know that you probably have to do this for every couple that wants to have their wedding or event at the Warren but we are still very very thankful you gave us so much of your time to not just keep the mood light with a giggle or two but actually go through our worries, plans and queries in detail.

I was at The Warren on Friday for a conference and was so impressed by how friendly, helpful & efficient the two women staffing the cafe were. It was very busy but their standard of service and helpfulness was exceptional. Thank you so much.

I just want to put on record my appreciation of the absolutely splendid service my family party of fourteen enjoyed on a joint birthday/Mothering Sunday celebration. Despite our ages ranging from two to seventy-three years old we were all brilliantly looked after and the food was so good some of it was taken home by those attending who could not manage it all.

I just want to thank you and the staff for yesterday. Unfortunately, we had 8 guests who were stuck on the motorway so arrived late, but the chef managed to still provide them with a lovely hot meal, and we had so many comments about how lovely the food was! 


* * * * *

WOW ! WOW ! WOW ! Simply OUTSTANDING!!! Rex & Georgia had the personal experience with Laura prior to the wedding, on the day my interactions with her & The Warren staff were First Class. Laura is simply a superstar! She was so efficient and organised and really quick to adapt to the usual sudden surprises that crop up. All the guests were very complimentary of The Warren itself and the surroundings. The serving staff were friendly and happy to resolve issues quickly. No queues in the bar (Yipee !!) and the bar staff were so accommodating. All in all a beautiful day… saying THANKS seems so insignificant! But I am sooooooo grateful! I have even been asked by a few guests about how to hire the venue!

Thank you for arranging our event for yesterday! It was a great success – the garden worked extremely well, lots of guests had a wander out there. Please pass on our thanks to those who served and managed the catering and bar – added to the atmosphere. Everyone is so lovely at The Warren – staff are so polite, welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Food was amazing too. We shall certainly book for next year – when should I send the date?

Our Sports Day was a huge success and it could only have been be so with the support from the staff at The Warren. Thank you so much – I really appreciate it and so did our teams.

Our huge thanks for the amazing afternoon we had for my Dad’s 90th birthday celebration in the Hayes Room. The venue was perfect and the food was delicious. I’ve had several comments on how good it was. The setup was also fantastic and we were able to use the screen for a slideshow and plug in our music. Special thanks to Sam our barman. He was absolutely delightful and nothing was too much trouble for him. He also made my Dad’s day by telling him how good he looked for 90 and hoped he looked as good at 90 himself! Dad was deeply touched by the whole thing and we will always remember what a fabulous day we had. I have no doubt we will be back for other social outings as it is such a lovely place to be.

Following our Christmas lunch yesterday, we would like to pass on our thanks to the staff at The Warren for making it such an enjoyable event. All guests commented on the efficient service they received, and welcomed the return of fabric table cloths and good quality napkins. The meal options offered a good selection and something for everyone that was good value for money. Overall a good time was had by all in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Thank you for helping make our Christmas celebration such a success.

I have been a memeber since 1984 and this is the first year I was able to attend the NYE dinner dance. I had to write to inform you of a brilliant evening, and express my graitude for the hard work and perfect arrangements. On my arrival I was impressed with the decoration of the Coney suite, it looked amazing and the black and gold table decorations were stunning. I enjoyed the meal very much and ‘Everyday People’ entertained and performed to a packed dance floor. Overall an enjoyable evening for all. I look forward to attending the tribute bands evenings throughout the coming year.

My personal thanks for the great reception we get from The Warren, for the wonderful way the staff treat us pensioners, and the great occasions we celebrate at our hallowed Warren

I just wanted to say thank you for your assistance (answering all my questions!) before the Craft Market on Sunday, and to the staff for their help with getting the room ready and just generally being on hand. We had a good day – not as busy as previous markets we’ve done there, maybe it was because there were no football matches, but then parking was easier! So many comments from stallholders and customers about what a beautiful venue it is!

We wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for your help and expertise in making our 50th Wedding Anniversary party last Saturday such a wonderful event. Everyone had a great evening, the food was excellent and the hot buffet went down a storm….think we could have ordered more wedges! Please pass on our thanks to the kitchen staff and the young Bar staff who all worked hard all evening, we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending The Warren as a venue.
