Money spinner from the start! very badly organised over an hour behind schedule, food really spicy with no alternative, no deserts brought around to a whole section upto 8 tables ! Bar que was hurendous, photo wye at the end even worse after paying £40 for 1 photo had to wus for 40 mins getting this on by others looking for photo. It was a circus! Very disrespect able to people.

Disappointed that we has to wait almost four hours in the venue with little to no decent entertainment prior to the main show. The time seemed to be filled with the auctioning of Ricky Hatton signed items to raise money. There was no Q&A. Unsure how they could class the table buffet as a four course meal.

Great event. The hotel should have been prepared for the huge amount of people at the bar! They could have made so much more if they planned well.

Please respond to my emails as we paid 240 pound in total for tickets we could not use as you had over booked the venue not to mention the money we lost in travelling and having time off work, also look into investing in some door staff that have people skills rather than wanting to shout and fight at the first sign of a problem that was might I add completely your fault and out of our hands! Disgraceful!!!!

This was a rip off from start to end!!!! Asking for money to be put in envelopes on each table £10 each!!!! That's £70 per table!!! The envelopes were collected and never to be seen or mentioned again!! Selling junk for money!!!! And 25 minutes with Ricky Hatton isn't an evening!! Utterly appalling!!!

The whole evening was chaos. No organisation at all. We left at 10pm as we were still waiting to be served our meal. Complete waste of money

It was poorly organised, overcrowded, queue out the door and down the street. Sound system was poor and not enough bar staff. Waitresses were good and enjoyed Ricky Hatton when he finally arrived on stage at 22:45.

Following the evening with Ricky Hatton I wanted to express my absolute disgust at the way I and several others were treated. Will Ken at Bix Frog care? No! An evening with Ricky Hatton actually was watch him have pictures taken and speak at gone 11pm for 40 mins, although this was something you had to work out alone. A rubbish venue with not enough staff, trip advisor ratings of the hotel do not lie! The food was like something you would fees to your dog and not enough to feed a full table. The waiting time for drinks was ridiculous. How you spoke to me and I was dealt with by the bouncers was ridiculous , especially as I hadn't even been drinking. Customers were not kept informed of the agenda and those who had to leave to get home by public transport were told to F off even though they paid for a photograph with Ricky. When I tried to resolve the issue the bouncers threatened me and Ken didnt care, I asked for money back of £20 I paid for photo and again F off. The night was a sham, the PA system didn't work, the games you played were not even at pre school level and the boxing memorabilia was hihjly over priced taking advantage of drunk punters that were uneducated in the stuff. Do you care - no. It was amateur hour and the prices paid were in excusable with you risking top professionals reputations. I work next to HMRC who are the next step, trip advisor after that. Disgusting!
