Food was a standout

Hi Amy, Everyone said they had a lovely time at the offsite - the standout was the food! It was mentioned by everyone, so you may like to pass that onto the chefs. Thank you Bells.

Thank you again for working with me on this event to ensure it was an easy process with no dramas. I heard nothing but great feedback about their stay at Bells, everything was perfect and the exact way the bosses wanted it. Thank you so very much, I am sure I will be in touch in the future to host more events at your beautiful location.
