'We used The Stage Door for a Recruitment Event we were holding for a new Dr Martens store opening in Southampton. They were incredibly helpful with all our requests and the venue was awesome! Would highly recommend.' - Karly Bittner, Dr Martens

'We used the Stage Door as our venue for recruiting and training our new team for our opening in Westquay. It was a great venue for us, very quirky and full of character. The team there were great and made us feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble for them. Definitely one of my favourite venues in the South J' - Jos Ruddy TGI Fridays

'Thank you to Julianne as well as all of the team at Stage Door and the Tea Rooms for hosting such a fab Hen do!
Everyone went above and beyond to ensure we were having a good time and especially our Hen. The burlesque dancing and cocktail making got everyone on their feet and in good spirits. The food was beautiful, catered to meet every persons needs in the group (including a vegan cream!) and came out fresh to order. All members of the group are raving about what a fun time it was. Thanks again for being such good hosts and couldn't recommend you all enough!'
