Jenniffer & Christian – Wedding

We we’re married at Noumber 47 and we enjoyed the most spectacular day. I’d like to say how wonderfully helpful Alison was in planning the day for us since the beginning six month prior to the event. It really turned out to be even better than all we could have imagined. Glynis, Martin and all the staff really couldn’t do more to make everything run smoothly. I would also like to thank the DJ from Epic Disco for playing great tunes which got lots of people on the dance floor and he even played some Salsa for us. We are incredibly grateful for you all allowing us to have our wedding at your venue, and we will cherish these memories forever.

Sharon’s Party
I just wanted to pop in to thank you ALL so very, VERY much for a fabulous night on Saturday. The organisation was absolutely top class and the ambiance, food and service was impeccable. Amazing!!! Well beyond what I expected. The Tables were set up by your team exactly as I had requested, it all looked fabulous. Thank you, it all looked so beautiful. All the serving staff were amazing on the night. They were so friendly, polite and extremely efficient. I would not hesitate to return and / or recommended your venue / services to others. Our singer / musician Mariasax was so impressed with everything too; the venue was an ideal setting for this event. Beautiful, spacious yet intimate and ideal for our dancing needs too. Everyone at Number 47 has been so very helpful and obliging from the start; I am so pleased that I choose Number 47 to celebrate my special birthday. All my guests have highly praised the Venue, the Room Set up, the Food and the Staff / Service. They all had a wonderful time. Please pass on my sincere thanks and gratitude to the Chef; the food looked and tasted absolutely delicious. I cannot express how much I appreciate every single little detail and all your hard work in making my party such a success.

 The Hayward wedding 
“I am writing just to say thank you. Simon and I had the most perfect wedding with out to many problems because what ever did come up was quickly resolved by your brilliant staff members. Myself and Simon where so impressed with all the staff members who where really exemplary, and so many of our guests were impressed by the staff as well the venue itself. The food was perfect, from what I hear ….I must admit I didn’t get to eat much of it myself due to being so rushed off my feet trying to talk to everybody! However from the little I did get was delicious. The setup of the room looked amazing. We have recommended the venue and yourself to a fair few people at the wedding due to the amazing service that was provided. With another amazing thank you.

Corporate Event

“The Mancroft suite was perfect for our event. The room itself comfortably fitted all our guests and the food provided was delicious. Organising the event was also made easy by the friendly and helpful staff who catered for our needs and responded quickly to all our queries. Everybody who attended had a wonderful time and it was excellent value for money. I cannot recommend it enough.”
