Gastronomy Dark Skies Night
"The meal was absolutely delicious"

I held a birthday celebration Sunday Lunch at GB.  I would like to thank all the staff who were involved in making it a big success.  After coming for many years, I chose GB as the venue as I could rely on the food & the service in a lovely setting.  The meal was absolutely delicious, there have been some compliments.  I think many of my guests will be visiting you again!

"We had an amazing day"

I just wanted to say a massive thank you our wedding could not have been more perfect.  Your team guided us through the day effortlessly, keeping everything running smoothly so all we had to do was concentrate on our wedding day and our guests.  From Friday I thought both rooms and the bar looked the part and they did not disappoint on the day.  The food was superb, with all our guests making comments of how delicious and perfectly cooked it all was….  We had an amazing day and would not change a thing, please pass on our sincere thanks to all involved.
