I'd just like to say a big thankyou to you and all of your team. The event went very well, the staff were very good in coping with our requests for more food and seating. We also stayed afterwards to have a very pleasant and relaxing drink overlooking the lovely lawn and woods. Thanks alot Charles

18th birthday lunch celebration-

Tuesday 05th June 2018

18th birthday lunch celebration What a wonderful day. Organisation of the event was excellent thanks to liasing with Gemma who covered all the details. On the day Charlotte and the attentive team were amazing looking after us and our guests for the whole time. The food was absolutely delicious and a good range for every palate from aged 10 to 78! The grounds are beautiful, which we made good use of during pre lunch drinks. I have no hesitation in recommending Hogarths for a special occasion. Very stress free and fully enjoyed by all. Thanks!
