Just to let you know that the Celebration went extremely well yesterday afternoon. Food was very good and vegan meal was very much appreciated by our 2 vegans. Chef did a great job. I wouldn't hesitate to book for other events. So thank you.

Dear Amber, We would like to express our thanks for the advice and support given in pulling together mum's reception. We were very pleased on such a difficult day everything went without a hitch. The staff on the day were very attentive, the buffet looked great. Please pass on our thanks to them also. Claudia also was very helpful when I dropped in earlier in the day. I would certainly recommend this venue to friends.

Thank you very much for all your arrangements for the funeral last week. Everything went according to plan. You and your colleagues delivered exactly what we had asked for: Efficient, unobtrusive, friendly and courteous service. Your flexibility with catering numbers up to the last day was very helpful. You took a great deal of the pressure away. The quality of the food was excellent but you should warn people in advance that the sausages were likely to fly from the plates, they were so delicious. Many thanks.

I would just like to say a big thank you to the racecourse team for the excellent service and compassion you showed to me and my family on Thursday. You enabled us to give Andy a good send off and the venue was an excellent choice and the day could not have passed more smoothly. Obviously it was a sad occasion for us as a family, but you enabled it to be as pain free as possible, and for this reason we are very grateful.

A huge thanks for yesterday, which went better than I could have hoped for. Many guests commented that Robert, my husband, would have approved of the standard of the food and the staff were all lovely, especially the main lady ( I have did not register her name unfortunately). We were so blessed with the weather and those who had driven from all over the country were very impressed with how amazing Brighton looked from the Racecourse.
