My best friend was leaving town; because of a boy. Angry & upset though I was, it dawned on me that I should throw her a leaving do so marvellous that she would not want to leave. So I picked up the phone and called the Old Queens Head. I got through to a happy cheery voice to who I ranted about my unfortunate friend & her new partner & why leaving London was such a mistake. And so I explained to her my devious plan. We needed an area for about twenty of us, near the fireplace & had to have some cocktails & canapés. The booking process was smooth & effortless. The bookings manager said she would ensure that the night was my friends best ever. And so it was.
We were made to feel special. As we entered the venue, we were shown our areas. There was champagne waiting for us & glasses lay out neatly. The tea lights all around added to the quirky yet pretty decor & the atmosphere was just right. The music was at the right level & though we could get up from those comfy sofas and sway whenever we wanted, we could also talk at a comfortable tone (OK sometimes it got a bit loud). The canapés arrived at the right time, lush & absolutely delicious & the cocktails were perfect. And what about my friend? Well, she still decided to leave, but before going she did say that the night was perfect & she couldn’t have wished for anything better. Now it may sound like I’m blowing my own trumpet, but this wouldn’t have been possible without the efficient planning & help from everyone at the Old Queens Head. Thank you guys!
