Overall having our Reception at the Squadron was fantastic and even better then we hoped for! It was the very 1st thing we booked when deciding on the wedding day so we were keen to go there!….The room and balcony, especially the views are just awesome! All the guests mentioned that. (Suggest that you recommend that the future weddings/events use icicle lights as the reflections seemingly out into the harbour were amazing!) The food was just delicious - again great feedback from all the guests on that. Your chefs are amazing ! We’d recommend the Squadron as a wedding / reception venue to everyone!
