After booking in around lunchtime we went to the Mr Fred's restaurant to initially be told they were fully booked and could...

My daughter got married at Stanley House in December 2015. This place is amazing for weddings, the staff just go the extra mile to make it a day to remember. Extra praise has to go to Megan and Ben and the lad behind the bar in The Stables. I cannot praise them enough. People who came are still talking about...
