Yes, the time is nigh.
Dust off the strappy sandals and the sequins, stock the fridge with tomato juice for the bloody marys – it’s time to party! Summer is here (nearly) and Christmas is nigh. Staff parties, once a year catch ups with old mates, family celebrations and no-excuse-needed-whatsoever lunches and drinks…we can help.
The restaurants are starting to fill and the private rooms more so, so don’t delay in booking your space. We hate people missing out.
