"Delicious food, lovely staff, would definitely have again!
We had vegan and chicken paella at our event and everyone was saying how delicious, filling and tasty it was. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The leftover paella was portioned up into containers for us and tasted fabulous reheated as well.
In the words of my 13 year old, “it was really good”."
