Reviews And Testimonials

"I visited Venue 16 for the first time last weekend to attend a very close friend's wedding.


I simply couldn't fault the venue, in any way. The staff, the cleanliness, the quality of the food, the facilities. We were so well attended to, it was astonishing."

Holly D

"We attended a funk/soul event called Summer Vibes. This was very well organised. Friendly staff. Security were cheery.
A good selection of food and drink. A nice touch was an email the morning of the event with the do's and don'ts as well as the days itinerary.
Car parking was plentiful and reasonable at £5 for the day."

"What a great time we had at Venue16.

Had a great Sunday Roast and then watched the Jazz and Blues event on in the afternoon.

The food was superb and the event was excellent.
Thank you to professional staff for a great day."
