We had a great time! The venue was fab, the food delicious and the staff were just delightful! I will certainly be singing my praises of the Dove and Olive to all my friends and colleagues – there was only one problem – we drank you out of Verve! Meaghan sent me a text that night that said she has an absolutely fabulous time – so a happy mama to be!

Please thank Sophie and the team for looking after us so well! We will be back!

Thank you very much for helping me organise my birthday shindig. I had such an amazing time and everything went well and smoothly and my guests all loved the set up of the venue. No issues whatsoever. I’m glad that I managed to convince my sister to have her birthday there too next month.

Massive thank you for helping me organise my 21st last night.

I had a fantastic time, and so did everyone who came.

The food was delicious, and the room was the perfect size for the number of people.

All of the people helping out, Lewis on the bar and I think the other man’s name was Jai (could be wrong, very sorry!!) were so so helpful. The service was perfect and I couldn’t have asked for anymore.

So thank you very very much on behalf of myself and my mum.

Thank you,

Everyone was complimenting the venue saying what a great location and space it was – I will definitely be recommending Dove & Olive!!

Thanks again,

The night went so well, I can’t thank you and your team enough. Please send a special thanks to Jo who was our bar-tender for the night, he did a wonderful job. The duty manager (sorry forgot his name) was so awesome as well, very thorough and had us all set up perfectly. Even the bar staff downstairs approached everyone with a smile and made everyone feel so welcome. This is the second event that I’ve had at the D&O (had my sisters hens there a few years back) and it’s been absolutely flawless each time. It’s such a great space and the staff have all been fabulous. Thank you so much for your assistance and for being so accommodating, I will always highly recommend the Dove and Olive. Please pass on my big thanks to everyone that worked on Saturday night.

Thanks again, we had a wonderful night.

Everything went perfectly. Everyone loved it and commented how wonderful the venue, food and service was. Brendan was lovely. I could not recommend Dove and Olive enough. I only hope I have a reason to have another event with you.

I had the best 40th and the venue was everything I wanted – laid back, winter cabin feel, cosy and intimate and not too squashy.

Thanks for all your help with everything.

Thanks for arranging the deposit.

Thanks again and I will be singing your praises far and wide.

Thanks again,

Hi Cathy

Everyone had a good time, positive comments all round. The staff were friendly and helpful.  The range of beverages speaks for itself, food was really good, one of the guys enjoyed the steaks so much he ended up ordering 3 during the session.

Saturday 22nd July 2017

Good afternoon Cathy!

I have been meaning to email you all day! Everything went perfectly on Saturday! Cams was wonderful, she had everything in hand and she kept everyone up to date  on the food and beverage situation. The venue was lovely, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting! I was a little concerned with all the roadwork going on but most of the guests came by public transport and those who drove did not have any problems parking.

We partied till about 4:30 pm then we were on our way.

Thank you again for organising everything so efficiently, The general consensus is that we will do this again around the same time next year so I will definitely be contacting you again.

Warmest regards, Jane.

Hi Cathy, everything was great!

Kamz was very friendly and checked on us through the night keeping us updated on where we up to on our minimum spend. Jeez she good, I watched her working hard all all night, bloody great manager! Everyone liked the space we had and the food was awesome. One small thing though, that low coffee table was properly in the way as we were standing chatting most of the night, we just moved it to the side to make a bit more space. Excellent job, I will recommend this place.

Cheers Saul.

Thank you so much for last night. It was an incredible event. The venue, food and staff totally exceeded our  expectations.

It was a pleasure working with you. Your time and dedication to help run this event on such short notice has been really appreciated. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Kind regards,
