I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you very much to you and Sam for a great party we had on Thursday night. The team really enjoyed themselves and have asked to come back again next year!

Thank you and I hope the rest of the parties go well for you.

Joanne Jones, Barclays
I’ve had nothing but positive comments from everyone that attended. They all loved the venue and said they thoroughly enjoyed their visit. If I have to organize another event like that, then I would definitely use you again.

Thanks also to your manager who was very kind when I visited the previous day, and who arranged for the furniture to be moved to accommodate the growing size of the party. Your flexibility and “can do” attitude was very welcome.

Thanks again,
Kind regards

Karen, IHS

Good morning,

We all had a great night, we enjoyed the venue and the bowl food – the steak & chips and fish & chips were particular favourites! I also thought that the staff were very attentive, so thank you to them.

Merry Christmas to your team, and we look forward to trying out Pause in the New Year.


Juliette, Costain
I have a headache from drinking too much wine, however we had a wonderful time, thank you!

I have received excellent feedback from my colleagues this morning.

We really liked the venue, the food was lovely and all the staff were incredibly friendly, polite and helpful.

Your manager could not have been more helpful.

All in all, we had a wonderful evening and we highly recommend Patch Bar.

Huge thank you to you and your staff for an amazing night on Friday.

You and your staff were fantastic and really looked after all of us.

Your overall service and your staff’s conduct to all of us was noted by everyone.

I would definitely recommend you for a great night out.

Many Thanks

The staff enjoyed themselves and have said they enjoyed the food, was a good atmosphere and music.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas and New Year!


Sue, RBS
I think it’s safe to say that everyone had a great time – as you probably seen!

The cocktails went down a treat as did the food, which hardly got out the kitchen doors before it was gone! I think the venue worked really well for us, and it was really good to have the use of the upstairs space to give us that extra area especially with so many guests.

The staff did a great job at fighting through the crowds to try and get food to everyone, and there never seemed to be much waiting time at the bar – so please pass on my thanks.

The venue has lots of character, it was a great night and I’d be happy to recommend the venue or return to Patch or try one of your other venues at some point in the future.

Once again, thanks to everyone for all the hard work.

Jude, GSMA
Just a big thank you – everything was great – staff all helpful and friendly – management accommodating (especially at such short notioce that we gave you)

Leon, City University
I want to say a massive thank you for all the help you both and your wonderful team did with last Thursday night. It was a fantastic evening. You have a great venue, staff were charming and so helpful and we most definitely would like to work with you again.

Another FANTASTIC party with Swizzlestick! I loved working with your events team and managers. Thank you again for having us and for being so flexible

Everyone loved the food, the music (Your DJ is truly a hero to our employees!), the drinks and the venue. Thanks for being so easy to work with

The feedback I have received from people that attended the event was all completely positive. Great team, venue, food and music!!

A massive thank you to you, Milena and all your staff for your help in making our “Quizmas Party” such a success. Our event at Pause was fantastic and everything went very well. The staff were very helpful and accommodating throughout the process and everyone had a great night. The venue was perfect for us. Please pass on our thanks to the DJ as well who was also great in getting the party going and keeping it going after the quiz.

Danielle Weber – Archin Insurance
I would like to say that we had a perfect service from your staff and cannot fault the attention they gave us.
The food was amazing, the only complaint was that some of us couldn’t finish what was on our plates, and even our small eater couldn’t leave anything.
I will definitely be coming back and would recommend this bar to the people I work with.
Please pass on our thanks and well done for having staff that actually care about the client.

Jeanette Hubbard - Global Aerospace
It was an AMAZING night, it could not have gone better. Really friendly, fun team to work with- both with the planning and on the night. They had ideas for the event and great contacts to provide. The staff on the evening were fabulous- very accommodating and seemed to enjoy helping host the event, which made such a difference. The refurbished venue looked great as well.

Robert Pooley
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team for making our engagement party so special! Everything was great, from the venue and the service to the drinks reception and the food. We really did have an amazing night, and all my friends and family keep telling me how much they loved the venue.
Your support and advice in the lead up to the party was also very much appreciated. I'm now trying to think of any excuse to come back and have another party with you!

Nicole Thompson
It pretty faultless to be honest – you all made our party feel very special and I can’t thank you enough.
People are still talking about how great it was – which is nice ;)
Thanks again

The Swizzlestick team did a fantastic job ensuring our event went as planned. I could not have asked for better service!

Excellent as ever. It will be our go to venue for future events. Had a great time last year and did not disappoint this time.

I cannot thank you and your team enough for hosting the most amazing party for me and my guests.
All of my friends have been sending me messages to say what a superb evening it was.
Everything about the service from start to finish was professional, personal and highly efficient.
I was very impressed with the communication both prior to the event and on the night, it was first class.
You all remained calm and composed at all times and made sure that I was happy with how things were organised before and throughout the entire event.
Once again thank you all very much for making my event so memorable and special.
