I took clients out for a Christmas lunch and it was perfect. The food was great, and of course the drinks were great. Will definitely be bringing clients back there again, as well as friends and family.

Mark and the team at the Sweat Shop handled our group of over 200 builders with ease. Fantastic food, drink, venue, atmosphere and team. We’ll be back again next year. 🥳👍🏼

So unfortunately our service was somewhat poor. We had new staff, that weren't attentive - and didn't have a customer-focus whatsoever... we were hosting customers, so as a result, it's unlikely that we'll bring customers back.

We celebrated my friends Hens party here with the Hens Package Sweat Shop offer. Even though i live in Australia, the Event Manager was an absolute gem throughout the whole process of organising. Our group of 19 females "gone wild" really enjoyed their time there, i highly recommend this establishment.

Hey Shalom, glad that you were happy with the service - something we work hard on! Sorry the music wasn't quite to your taste - we have a spot on our website where we post what DJs/Musicians are playing so could be good to check this before you book again - we def have a large variety of music here! Looking forward to hosting you again.
