A well located and easily accessible venue (that provides free car parking!) is just the start of a great experience. The friendly, efficient and professional service from Deb Fife (Event Sales and Tourism Manager) is just the beginning of a great event - the catering is superb, complimented by a wide range of beverages - both at very good prices; the team who looked after us on the day - especially Simon, Zoe and Michael - are great and provide excellent service with a smile. Would I recommend Carlton Brewhouse to others? I certainly would, with confidence they would enjoy the experience.

From the beginning, dealing with the event team was a breeze. Always professional, helpful and willing to go the extra mile if needed. All the staff in fact have been wonderful and were exceptionally great on the day. Would recommend Corporate or personal events with this team in charge!

The venue was the perfect spot for a recent fundraiser that met all the requirements and the price was very good for the quality of venue and drinks package received. The staffing ensured that there was no waits for drinks or food and the success of the event was largely attributed to such an iconic venue. The unique layout and style of the venue was suitable for both the band and also the silent auction. I would highly recommend it for those looking to host a function

The flow of organising the conference with Deb was smooth and our suggestions were met with no problems. On the day of conference all staff were professional and attentive, but, I do need to say Eloise was outstanding. No request was too much and we appreciated the prompt delivery. We would definitely recommend the Brewhouse. Thank you to all

The team at CUB went above and beyond to make our dream day into a reality. From the beginning it was very smooth sailing and never once had any hiccups throughout the whole planning stage. CUB were always accommodating to my wants and needs no matter what they were. Deb, Andrew and Emily are wonderful event coordinators and managers and we couldn't be happier. The food was amazing not one single complaint from our 124 guests and the beverages were more than we could have asked for. Thank you so so much CUB! We will definitely be back!

Deb, I wanted to touch base to say a huge big thanks for your hospitality. I have owned 3 event companies and run hundreds of events over the last 15 years and would absolutely have no hesitation in saying that you and your staff were first class across the whole of the journey - from morning to night with both days, as well as the lead up to the event. Your staff were friendly, accommodating and were amazing at their customer service. Thanks for making our event a success. We have been overwhelmed by the participants feedback on the venue and the service by your staff so it wasn't just us that noticed.
