The food was great, the service first class, nothing was too much trouble, everyone was impressed. The music both live and recorded sounded good, the live artist Ava Golding + Trio were fantastic, the garden looked really impressive lit up at night. A great venue for a party or reception, thanks again, Ian + Nadia Dennes. Party testimonial April 2015; “Le QuecumBar is a fabulous place to hold a party. The atmosphere was terrific with a truly convivial buzz. Steve was incredibly helpful in the planning and he and his staff were superb on the night. The food was perfect and Radiodaze(the band) made the evening go with a swing.” Katherine Royal Academy of Dance – Re their summer party July 2014 …………..Our staff very much enjoyed the evening at the bar. Everyone has been very complimentary of the food and commented there was a good variety of options, particularly for vegetarians too.
