Thank you very much for all your help with the organisation of my 21st on Saturday night. The party went very well and everyone had a great time. Please thank Catherine and all the bar staff for their great service and help throughout the night. Me and my family were extremely happy with the venue and how the night ran, so thank you!

I will be in tomorrow morning to collect anything that was left there on Saturday night.

On behalf of the officials, parents and players from Dulwich HIll Football Club I would like to thank you for facilitating our dinner last Friday evening 27th July 21012. The room which you made available to us, the food and the service suited our needs perfectly. We will certainly use your venue again.

Everyone really enjoyed the wedding. You and your staff were great and nothing was too much trouble.

Had quite a few comments on the quality of the food. It was thoroughly enjoyed and the night went off really well without a hitch.

Also had a chat to Christine at bishops court and she said she would recommend the Ox for large numbers. She has often been asked as she can only cater for small functions.

All in all was great value for the money.

The bride and groom are honeymooning in Europe so will have to get their thoughts when they get back. All so rushed for them to get packed up and on the plane didn’t have time to talk about it.

Thanks again,

Heather Lavelle.

I want you to know that everyone was so pleased with the party on Sunday, 20th October, especially the birthday ‘girl’.

Andrew and Emma were splendid hosts and did everything they could to make people feel welcome.

We lost a few people that weekend to bushfires concerned. Two of our close families were evacuated from the Blue Mountains, and a couple other older people did not want to travel with the smoke concerns, so we were a tiny bit over on catering, and you were right, the chef is very generous.

Thank you for all your help in organising the party.  You made everything absolutely effortless for us and I do appreciate it very much.

Best regards,

Mary Jo

Just a quick email to thank you and the staff for the wonderful party that was held on Saturday night. I have had good reports about the food (and the volume of it), service and of course the atmosphere.

Thanks for your generosity and we would love to keep the Ox in mind for future events.
