“We could not have had a better day than you guys provided at Birkenhead yesterday. Everything that you did and provided was first class and of an exceptionally high standard. The area for the Lounge was outstanding and our table first rate. The team on the food deserve a special mention for both the quality and the quantity – it would match anything that I have had at a MC function (and I’ve seen a few!). If you are taking early bookings we are in for next year. Well done on a great day and exceptional event.”
