“The Mayor’s Parlour itself was a beautiful room, it was light and spacious and provided enough room for us to work but also to break out and relax to enjoy our refreshments and lunch, which was superb! The events team couldn’t have been more helpful, we can’t recommend Devonport Guildhall highly enough and will certainly be returning.”

“Staff are always attentive and helpful. The refreshments were also of the highest quality and the quantities were ideal. The venue itself is very impressive and attendees were always impressed with the architecture, decoration and furnishings.”
