Simon – I just wanted to say what a huge thank you to you and your team for our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding blessing at The Mansion House on Saturday, 31 March 2018. The venue was great, the food was excellent and the service appeared effortless. I don’t want to single anyone out as I don’t know everyone’s name, suffice to say all of your team were polite, attentive and efficient. They all worked very hard and nothing was too much trouble.
The disco was also excellent and I will contact Sound Wave separately the thank Darren for a great evening.
We may have two more weddings to come and will certainly have you and The Mansion House at the top of our potential venue list.
Thank you again.
Geoff and Diane Summers

Fine Dining in Clifton — Mansion House

Hi Abigail,

I was just emailing to say thank you to you and your team for being so wonderful before and on our wedding day.  We had a fantastic day and that was mostly because of you guys; keeping things moving, providing wonderful food, not minding too much when someone broke a plate (still not sure how he dropped his knife and shattered the plate), amongst a million other things you did for us.

I hope dealing with all our guests wasn’t too taxing for you.

Anyway, thank you again for helping us make our day so special.

Best wishes

Gemma & Michael

Gemma & Michael’s smashing day. — The Lord Mayors Mansion House, Clifton.

Dear Simon
Thank you so much for your enormous contribution to the success of our dinner last Friday. The canapés before the meal were all delicious and the meal itself was superb, hot, well-presented and beautifully cooked. The asparagus was perfect in flavour and texture, the lamb beautifully tender and the rhubarb panna cotta so light and well-flavoured, a lovely way to end the meal. Service of both food and wine was quick and efficient and your staff did a thoroughly excellent job. We could not have been more pleased.
As you know we may be hosting a similar event in about 18 months time and if we do, I shall have no hesitation in asking you to cater it.

Dear Simon

Thank you so much for looking after us at our special anniversary dinner at Merchants’ Hall last night.  All our guests had an excellent time and it was a splendid way to celebrate our 30 years and look forward to the next 3 decades.  Thank you for providing the Prosecco for us too.

I hope you could hear the round of applause for you and your team during the speeches.

Thank you again for your support.

Warm regards, Sue

QCF anniversary dinner — Merchants Hall, Bristol

Dear Abigail, Simon and all the staff at The Mansion House,

Thank you so much for all that you did for our wedding. You have all been wonderful through all of the planning, decisions (and indecision!) and last minute guest list changes and it all came together in such a perfect wedding day. The venue was brilliant, we had so many comments about how beautiful yet relaxed The Mansion House is, and the food was fantastic – we just wished we managed to eat more of the canapés! Thank you all for your help and for being so accommodating and flexible, we will definitely be recommending your venue and services to others.
A great start to married life! (If only we could eat that well everyday!)
Best wishes,
Emily and Tim

Mr & Mrs Shurlock get wedlock off with a blast — The Lord Mayors Mansion House

Dear Simon

Just need to say a huge THANK YOU to you and your team for the most fantastic food at Brian & Jen’s wedding this week.  We had high expectations but you exceeded them. The food was superb, the service & attention to detail was first class. You delivered Alison’s wine glass with a panache we didn’t expect.  The feedback from everyone was so positive, the best wedding food ever. Go us! Go you!  Just so pleased we chose you for the happiest & most perfect day ever.

Thank you again

Jen & Brian get hitched — North Cadbury Court

Dear Simon,
For something drawn together so quickly it turned out to be a lovely evening and Imogen enjoyed it, which was the main thing. Thank you to you and your staff for such great help. The traffic and the trains conspired to rob us of time to prepare a little more, but the fact that you didn’t stick rigidly to the timing and allowed us more time before supper really helped to make a relaxed and happy atmosphere. I would definitely recommend The Mansion House to others, it’s a great venue.
We particularly liked the fish pie and it was a brilliant idea to move to a sit-down hot supper, it suited the number and was more relaxing than balancing nibbles and standing all evening.
Thank you again,
With regards
Sue Smith

Imogen’s 21st — The Mansion House

Hi Simon,


Thank you to you and your fab team with all your hard work and help on yesterday’s event. I, from what I have heard so far, have been told it was a great success and the food was really lovely.


Please pass on my thanks to the young lad who was there earlier on in the morning, he kept me supplied with coffee and was a great help, something I think is really important when you are at an external venue (help not the coffee).


I will be in contact with you regarding the catering proposal for the LL Awards in October – thank you for this.


Once again, many thanks on helping me to make yesterday go well.


Many thanks


Kind Regards

Hi Simon


I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you so much for the catering arrangements earlier this evening.  Once again you and the team raised the bar, and we had really great feedback from the guests about the quality of the canapes, which were delightful, and beautifully presented.

Thank you for that, I know that this was a small event for you, but your support really helped to make this a special evening to remember for the Guardians and their guests.

All the best,
