2.87km from Fame FashionsVisited the City Rooms for the first time for a Christmas meal. This is a stunning building well placed in the centre of the city. We were greeted by a pleasant doorman and then offered a glass of bubbly or orange juice in the hallway. Our party of 40+ were to be seated in the downstairs room next to the bar. Place names had been provided with meal choices on them. We would take these and place them where we wished to be sat on the large round tables (nice idea for both guests and staff serving food). The room was beautiful and nicely decorated. Nice to have table centres that didn’t totally obscure the opposite side of the table. Lovely table linen; place settings had crackers added. We had a quick look upstairs at the ballroom which was gorgeous, but it would have been way too big for our party. We had been offered this on booking, and were glad with our decision on the lounge downstairs. The bar area was a little tight with the usual bar leaners standing chatting. Glad there was not an additional party at the same time or it would have been difficult to move in there. Service though was prompt and very pleasant. The meals were served swiftly and without fuss. Wine we had purchased was placed on the tables. The food was delicious and good portion size. Lovely to have mince pies and coffees afterwards too. There was music playing, but not too loud it interrupted people talking and it was quickly turned down when speeches were made. All in all a very beautiful building which caters very well for large parties. Would highly recommend.
