What our banqueting clients say...

"In all aspects the RDS team were an absolute pleasure to work with and extremely responsive to requests and suggestions. In both preparation and in delivery we had an extremely positive experience and I look forward to working with the RDS again in the future. Feedback from those present at the event was extremely positive and I have no hesitation in recommending the venue."
