Private Hire Testimonials
We’ve just lost the last of our visitors so before I crash out I wanted to send you a massive thank you Clare for all your help in putting on our 60th birthday party. You have been fantastic and definitely helped make the party go with a massive swing. Please please also send our thanks on to your wonderful team. The waitresses, barmen and everybody else were amazing, nothing was too much trouble and they definitely went that extra mile for us. We thanked as many people as we could before we left but please pass our thanks on to everyone in case we missed anyone (including the chefs as their food was delicious!) The feedback we have had from our friends today was fantastic, it wouldn’t surprise me if you have a fair few bookings for parties from friends in the future.
The Engine Shed is definitely ‘on the map!
Many thanks again

Express Group - December 2017
I just wanted to thank you so very much for accommodating our group on Saturday night. I went Saturday morning to decorate a booth and the cleaner/bar manager lady couldn't have been more helpful and nice. The 90s night itself was truly fantastic. the live band was true to the era and the disco afterwards was just fantastic. I will not hesitate to visit again your venue is beautiful, wonderfully clean and the bar prices were reasonable. Thank you ever so much. You really helped to make our night brilliant.

The children enjoyed it so much we did it again this year!
