“The level of catering and the evening in the Small Hall was outstanding. The menu was inventive, suitably scaled and much appreciated by all delegates. The few individual allergy requests were well dealt with. The meal was very good value for money and generally of a significantly high standard.” Kirchhain-Methody 50 Year Reunion, 16-18th September 2016
