“Thank you for organising another efficient and enjoyable event at Monkhouse Granary. I was reminded that we first used the Granary in the lead up to the 2005 general election, when we held a meeting there for CLA members and prospective parliamentary candidates – and we’ve been coming back ever since for a range of social and professional events. The facilities are excellent and nothing is too much trouble. I have never had to amend or question anything during the whole time, and that is almost unheard of these days. You also provide most scrumptious cakes and cookies, which always put CLA members in a good mood!”

Caroline Bedell, Director, CLA Midlands

“It has been such a pleasure to use the Coach Room at Monkhouse for recent training events.  The course participants and tutors all loved the design and comfort of the room – and it has to be said that all  refreshments and lunches have received rave reviews!  As an event organiser I couldn’t have been treated more thoughtfully at all stages of the various arrangements, and my tutors fed back to me how welcome they felt when working there.  Thank you to all concerned.”

Dot Reeves, Director, Course Beetle

“The Women and Broadband project across Shropshire is focused on improving digital skills for women in business, encouraging them to use new technologies to start and grow their businesses.  With a high tech focus and nearly 20 events scheduled across the county the delivery partners WiRE (Women in Rural Enterprise) needed to find comfortable and welcoming venues; plus with often 20 delegates practising their new digital skills at one time, venues with excellent broadband speed were an absolute must. Monkhouse Granary fitted the bill on all counts; lovely rural surroundings, plenty of parking, gorgeous homemade buffet and lightning fast internet.”

Fiona Davies – Women in Rural Enterprise (WiRE)

“What a fantastic conference venue, after holding conferences for the last 15 years at various venues, I would strongly recommend the Monkhouse Granary to anyone requiring the perfect first class conferencing service. The location is ideal with central links to all areas for both Shropshire and further afield. The venue itself was more akin to Grand Designs than your standard conference facility. It was such a refreshing change to have a dedicated conference facility (instead of a bolted on service in a hotel), offering latest technologies, dedicated parking, a team on hand that could not do enough, a comfortable and stylish conference room environment, wonderful food and a setting that encompassed both countryside and main transport links.”

Angela Morris – Shropshire CVS Partnership Project Manager

“Thank you to all the staff who have made organising the quarterly Board meetings so easy! I have used the Monkhouse Granary on many occasions, and staff will always go the extra mile to ensure any requirements are met (however last minute!)  The service is consistently excellent and the home made biscuits and cakes are second to none – and all in a wonderful location!  I would highly recommend this as a venue for any meeting.”

Jaclyn Kitson, Transforming Telford

“Thank you for letting us hire your function room. It is a great venue and we hope to have many more events there.”

Leonie Steele, British Dental Association

The venue provides for all our needs, from technological requirements to excellent home produced food. We always receive an excellent and personal service, which is well planned in advance and also totally responsive to any changes or additions on the day. We find it to be very popular with staff, and highly conducive to productive work.”

All of my staff that attended on the day said what an excellent venue you have and especially enjoyed the lunch! The day went very well and was enjoyed by my team and I am sure that this was due to the venue and your assistance. I will certainly consider booking the Monkhouse Granary if my department has another away day in the summer.”

Gary Turner – Family Health Services

“I just want to thank you again for providing the excellent facilities at the Monkhouse Granary for our annual Away Day.  The professionalism and care taken to provide the equipment and room layout required in comfortable surroundings was evident.  Yet again all those who attended were extremely impressed with the high standard of catering and the discrete manner in which you operated. I am sure we will be making a return booking for next year.”
