Four months in the planning, 35 of us from all around the country converged on Tillington Hall for lunch to celebrate Mum attaining 90 not out and could not have chosen a better venue.
Sales Co-ordinator Meghan, a consummate professional who should be highly prized by her employers, had patiently guided me through the planning and ensured that all our extra requests were in place on the day. Meghan was always available both in person and by email and her unfailing ' can do, no problem' approach is genuine and remarkable.
We had the Conservatory to ourselves with the tables arranged exactly as we wished - mobility access throughout the hotel is first class- and were given free rein to bring our own table decorations, place cards, balloons, cake etc.
The meal was outstanding, really good value for money, vegan and gluten-free options supplied without fuss and the serving staff were very pleasantly efficient - also patient with those of us who had forgotten what we had ordered! Unlike other so-called bigger name local venues we have used in the past, there was absolutely no pressure to leave the tables after the meal, so we were able to make an afternoon of it. After an interval for a power nap, some of us reconvened in the evening at the bar for the post mortem!
To summarise, for any family function, forget the rest as Tillington Hall is the best! less
