“I would just like to say thank you.  My daughter had her party yesterday at Alter Rock and really enjoyed it.  The food was spot on and there were only a few oranges left for me!! It made a huge difference for me as I could just enjoy watching the kids rather than worrying about the food.” Hilary. May 17
