We arranged a surprise celebration for my mother with friends and family. Simon was extremely accommodating in providing the venue for a private function with two very helpful and attentive waiting staff. It was a comfortable and relaxing environment with good music and refreshment.

I have a friend in Canterbury and go out of my way to go and see her so we can have night out at The Ballroom. Quality of London at local prices. Really great atmosphere and fun vibe. I wish it was closer to home!
