'' I just wanted to thank you all so much for an amazing night last night. Please pass on our thanks to Arthur and Lynda too.

Both Coda and KiwiRail team members have given very positive feedback about the venue facilities, delicious burgers, and helpful Guides.

It was the perfect setting for our event of bringing two teams together, having fun and building strong working relationships.

We will be sure to let others know about your awesome event offering.''

Marie Young, Communications Advisor - Customer & Growth, KiwiRail, May 2024 

'I would like to say a massive thanks to Royal Oak Bowls for allowing us to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday party.

The whole process was so easy and relaxed and this helped ease the stress of putting a party on! Mike went out of his way to answer any questions and accommodate our needs for the evening. We had the best time! Des and Robyn who facilitated the bowls were lovely, and everyone loved playing bowls no matter what skill level. 

The feedback from family and friends was that it was the best party they had been to in a long time. 

The location and layout were great and I also really appreciate you letting me bring in my own catering as well as utilising KA Kitchen who provided some delicious nibbles.

We would definitely recommend Royal Oak Bowls for any event!''
