Reviews And Testimonials

“Fantastic afternoon & evening with Venue16 yesterday at their Xmas Fayre & Fireworks. Lots of stalls with great gift ideas, live music acts, tasty food at very reasonable prices and a huge, colourful, 20-minute firework display!! Absolutely brilliant time. Please do it all again next year Jamie”

Vicky Noble

“Had a lovely meal with the family. Having never been before, didn't know what to expect. It was the best meal I have had in a very long time. Staff were friendly and paid special attention to allergies. Would 100% recommend and go back. My new favourite place to go!!”

Dawn Groom

“Special mention to waitress Tia. My dad and I agreed that it's been literally years since we were treated so professionally by wait staff. From the warm & genuine welcome, to explaining the menu, to alerting us in advance of what wasn't available, to asking the chef a banal question about sun dried tomatoes for me - Tia was just great. All the staff are. And I mean it when I say that you just don't see this level of customer service regularly, so it was so nice. Also the food is fantastic. Big generous portions, beautifully cooked and presented well. Can't wait to return!”
