"We hired Westgate Hall for a joint 4 years and 40 years superhero party and it was brilliant! The staff were superb and helped with every aspect of the party from catering, setting up, running the bar, to clearing away, at a very reasonable rate. I would certainly recommend it for any celebration."


"Great venue for all sorts of parties. Highly recommend. We had our wedding reception here - really enjoyed it, compliments for great hospitality provided by the staff, nice bar and setting."
