“I am writing to you and Cathedral staff to express our deep thanks and appreciation for all your hard work last night.  The setting was perfect, as was the catering and drinks. Your staff made every effort to help and no request was refused. They were truly professional and made our special night so memorable.”

“Our event exceeded our expectations and certainly created the WOW factor.  Everyone complimented our choice of venue and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  Food and service were exceptional but the star of the show was the Dean– what a speech!  Please forward my thanks to all who helped to make our 20th anniversary dinner so special!”

Southwark Cathedral certainly worked its magic on our guests all round!
Thanks for sourcing some lovely examples of the wines I’d asked about – there were some extremely appreciative comments!
Thank you so much for all you did to make last Thursday evening such a success. It really couldn’t have gone better and we appreciated you going the extra mile to make us welcome at such short notice. Our guests loved the venue and the sense of occasion that it provided. Andrew really went above and beyond in the careful thought he had done in preparation, and that was appreciated by us all.
We’d love to work with you again some time.

I just thought I would drop you a line about last night.  What a roaring success!  Everyone loved it.  It was non-stop compliments from start to finish.  ‘Excellent food, excellent staff, venue amazing’ and ‘how did you find out about this?’, ‘where did you find this caterer?’, ‘the music is fab’ and so it went on. 
We were helped massively by yesterday’s mini last minute heat wave but just to say – the event went perfectly and that was down to you guys.  So a big thumbs up.
It truly is a special venue and we will definitely be back.
