Lovely Couple, Reliable and Fantastic Service

Thank you for providing an excellent service at our fireworks event. Your reliability, excellent communication and customer service was exceptional. The redesigned horse box looks really cool and a very good range of treats and hot drinks. Highly recommend and would defiantly use again!

Extremely disappointing

For our wedding, we booked the horse box for hot drinks outside, the inside bar for draught beers and other options and glass wear. We were very excited to have them at our wedding- Sadly it was a great disappointment.
-Arrived an hr late and said we couldn’t have horse box bar and inside bar because of weather (but then told they wouldn’t have ran them simultaneously anyway)
-inside bar had no draughts on as booked
-provided 2 staff yet promised 5 (120 guests!)
- no water available at the bar
- falsely accused father of bride of not paying for drinks all day (turned out to be 2 G&Ts accidentally)
- pre agreed wine on tables was removed prematurely and guests reported seeing it sold back to them!
-left lots of their rubbish behind

Response from The Bird and Bee
We are sorry to hear that you were not happy with our service. The decision not to utilise the horsebox was made on arrival by your contact (Father) meeting us at your event. This was not a decision taken by our director. We arrived less than twenty minutes later than agreed due to having to reroute due to flooding. Unfortunately the torrential nature of the weather on the day meant your contact believed it would not be appropriate to have anything other than an indoor bar. We therefore followed instructions given. The draft beer was set up inside the horsebox which once in place can not be moved to an alternative location (due to the nature of the beer itself). As you requested not to have the horsebox active due to the weather, this was no longer usable. We had plenty of alternatives. A standard number of staff for your original guest numbers is 2/3, at no point was there a lengthy wait for a drink and guests were happy. There was water available on all tables. The water tap was located a long way from the tipi itself across a large flooded field. Despite this there was water provided around the tipi by ourselves. As agreed prior to the event all wine was removed following dinner. It was not sold back to guests, it was simply popped aside in boxes and returned at the end of the night. Our wine was from a different supplier and was plentiful. The team cleared and removed all bar rubbish but left catering rubbish behind having assisted in clearing up. On the day we provided complimentary services throughout including; Free bride and groom drinks, complimentary Prosecco, free provision of tea and coffee facilities, complimentary glassware for tables, carafes for water etc. All these services are usually provided at a fee. The team pride themselves on good service, excellent value and communication as evidenced in our other reviews.

Beautiful bar, excellent service!

Ella and her team in the horse box bar were a fantastic, vintage addition to my 40th festival style party. Communication beforehand was excellent. The bar arrived in plenty of time for the start of the party, the horse box was beautifully decorated with an excellent selection of drinks. The drinks were really reasonably priced and all my guests were impressed!
I'd absolutely recommend The Bird and Bee - thanks Ella!
