Hi Jane!

Saturday was wonderful. We all had such a lovely time, and Anissa was fantastic. Everyone said they found it really fun and educational!

Here's a before and after photograph of the event :)

Many thanks,

Matt, May 2023
Hi Jane

Thanks for your email - it all went brilliantly. Anissa was absolutely fantastic, she really knew her stuff, had a great sense of humour and took us through a really interesting session. Would definitely recommend her to anyone for a session, please pass on our thanks to her again.



Michael, Feb 2020
Hi Jane,

Everything went to plan with the wine & beer tasting and Rachael was a great host! Thanks for your help in organising.


Mike, Aug 2019
Evening Jane

We had a brilliant thank you very much. Please let Mark know we really enjoyed ourselves and he was great - the stag especially liked this activity. Although I think he perhaps had a bit too much by the end!

Thanks for helping me organise - really appreciate it.

Best wishes

Matt, May 2019
Hi Jane

We loved it! Robert was utterly brilliant. We learnt more (and drank more) than we expected. The beer & wine tasting was the perfect way to round off the weekend.

Thanks again


Tom, Mar 2019
Dear Jane,

We had an excellent 2 hour beer tasting session on Saturday. Diana was very good and the beers were a good selection.

Many thanks

Matthew, Feb 2019
Hi Jane,

The tasting hosted by Helen was great! We had a lot of fun and thought the drinks on offer were interesting, varied and really enjoyable.

Many thanks for organising.


Andrew, Jul 2017
Hi Jane,

We had a fantastic time, everyone was incredibly complimentary of Mark. He took everything in good humour and made the night very enjoyable.

I think one of the guys may be in contact to organise another event off the back of it,

Kind Regards,


Paul, Apr 2017
Hi there Jane,

Yes, everything went very well on Saturday, thanks for checking.

I thought Abbie did an excellent job retaining the attention of 18 lads and they all enjoyed the experience.

Please thank her again from us for the long journey and effort she went to.


Rob, Nov 2016
Hi Jane

Robert was absolutely superb, a really great guy - everything was just as we wanted.

Please pass our thanks onto him again for an excellent wine tasting session.


Rob, Nov 2016
Dear Jane
Thank you very much indeed for putting on a great event on Friday. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and hopefully learned lots!
Robert's amusing, friendly and professional style was perfect for our group.
Kind regards

Simon, Jul 2016
Hi Jane

Everything was brilliant we all had such a great time and learnt a few useful tips as well.

Mark was superb and was really able to connect with us and made the whole thing great fun and interesting.

Everyone left asking how they can book something for them selves and I'm already thinking about great opportunities to book with you again.

Thanks so much for all your help and please pass my thanks onto Mark.


Kyle, Jun 2016
Hi Jane

We all loved it!

It was very informative and fun.

The beer & wine tasting had the perfect blend for a group of age 30+ guys.

Would definitely recommend!

Many thanks


Daniel, Jun 2016
Hi Jane.
I just wanted to say thank you to you and Chris for Friday's wine tasting.

We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and had plenty of laughs. And even learned a thing or two. It got the stag do off to a great start.
I would most definitely recommend Thirty Fifty to anyone looking to do something like this.

All the best

Jonathan, Apr 2016
Hi Jane,

We all had a good time and extend our thanks to you accordingly - Erik adapted well to the group and we benefited very much from his knowledge and experience.

I will recommend you in the future should I know anyone else interested in a tasting experience.


Jay, Apr 2016

Happy to report the wine tasting was excellent and Robert was a superb host for the occasion. Along with some delicious wines on the best day of warm sun so far in 2016. Robert certainly knew his stuff and I think we all learnt something from him. If I ever need some wine tasting again I'll come to you guys for sure.


Sami, Feb 2016
Hi Jane,

Thanks for the email.

The Cheese and Wine tasting went so well, the food and drink itself was lovely but the evening was a huge success due to Antony; he was absolutely brilliant. He was informative and knowledgeable but was also able to read to the crowd so well which allowed him to keep it funny and easy going.

I will definitely be using ThirtyFifty again - please pass my thanks to Antony.

Stephen, Nov 2015
Hi Jane,

Thanks for your email.

It was a really good evening, I think everyone had a good time and it was particularly interesting to learn about English wine!


Matt, Nov 2015
Hello Jane,

Just a note to say the guys thoroughly enjoyed the wine and beer tasting with Chris on Saturday. He got our level very quickly and made it a really fun way to spend the afternoon! Thanks for your patience with the booking and the venue turned out to be ideal in the end.

Thanks again,

Matthew, Oct 2015
Hi Jane,

We had a fantastic time at the tasting session. Rob was brilliant! Really interesting and informative. All of the stag party gave very positive feedback of the experience and I've forwarded the details of thirty-fifty onto them.

Greg, Aug 2015
Hi Jane,

It was brilliant, the guys passed me good comments about the beer tasting. Camilla was awesome, got the group going, full of banter and handled the group brilliantly.

Thank you again

Matthew, Apr 2015
It was a great experience, very impressed with Antony.

Huge thanks, Matt

Dave, Mar 2015
Hi Jane - the event was a great success and Garry had a full part to play in that, so please pass on our thanks to him. His combination of enthusiasm and sense of fun, and deep knowledge of wine was greatly appreciated.

We would certainly look to engage you for another event in the future and would definitely like to have Garry back to lead it.

Alex, Nov 2014
Hi Jane
Many thanks to Abbie and you for organising the hotel and tasting. It went down even better than the beer!
It ran seamlessly, and Abbie's knowledge of the beers was excellent. With hindsight I probably should have chosen a couple more beers, and the quiz was good fun.
Thanks again.

Ben, May 2014
Hi Jane,
We had a great time! Antoni was fantastic - he clearly knew everything and genuinely loved the wine, but presented it in an accessible and charming way. Many thanks and best wishes.

Gary, Mar 2014
Hi Jane,

Thanks for the email. All went well with the Beer Tasting and please pass on the biggest thanks to Helen. Her ability to articulate the information, whilst engaging the group, whilst keeping proceedings light hearted was fantastic.

Many of the participants said it was the best activity they had done on a stag weekend.

If I gave a score I would give Helen 10/10.

Thanks again!

Callum, Mar 2014
The wine tasting and entertainment Helen put on for us was brilliant. She really helped to give us all an excellent night and taught a few of us a few things as well. I would happily recommend Helen to future groups.

Will, Nov 2013
The wine tasting went really well thanks - it fitted in perfectly with our afternoon plans and the mood at the time. Anne-Marie was great and I would certainly recommend you to others.

Craig, Nov 2013
Everything was great Jane. Tony was very informative and good fun. Thanks again!

Rachel, Sep 2013
Hi Ian, It was great to meet you and to be a part of the stag do (I went straight home afterwards and did not join them for the last part of the evening!!) We all really enjoyed ourselves - you were very knowledgeable and it's very interesting to see just how complex wine tasting and everything about wine can be. I will be back in touch should we wish to purchase any of the wines, or indeed arrange another wine tasting event!

Sam, Sep 2013
Can I please say what a great time we had on Saturday and what a star Helen was. She was knowledgeable and a fantastic host who dealt with the banter of the stag do very well. Can you please pass on my thanks to her again.

Dan, Aug 2013
Hi Chris, We really enjoyed the wine-tasting. I thought your delivery was excellent and I know the others did too, struck a great balance of being very funny and fun, but also taught us loads as well – would very strongly recommend to anyone else considering a wine tasting session.

Andrew, Aug 2013
We all had a great time - it was just what we wanted. Robert was great so please pass on our thanks.

Cormac, Jul 2013
Hello - I just wanted to give a bit of feedback, and say thank you for a great stag do wine tasting on Saturday, with Camilla. She kicked things off really well (the group was getting a bit jaded and quiet after a few beers with lunch!), and got us going, then sort of followed the mood as we all picked up a bit.

There were loads of laughs, and the whole thing was perfectly pitched for a stag do. It was also structured in a way that meant everyone was included, irrespective of their knowledge/experience of wine.

So thanks again!

Robert, Jul 2013
Dear Jane, Everyone had a great time at the tasting, and Camilla was the perfect host. She was informative, but also injected a real sense of fun. I would be happy to recommend ThirtyFifty to others.

Matt, Jul 2013
Hi Jane and Simon, Just wanted to email to say thank you so much for an absolutely brilliant beer and wine tasting for our stag do on Saturday. To handle 15 blokes and the banter that goes with it is not easy and Simon you did a superb job. It was interesting, informative, and very very funny. We all said it was the highlight of the weekend. Thanks again guys, much appreciated.

Nathan, Jun 2013
It was great fun thanks. Well run and enthusiastic host. Only good feedback!

James, Jun 2013
Hi Jane and Camilla, Thanks for a fantastic evening on Saturday. None of the group had taken part in wine tasting before and we didn't know what to expect. It was a really good evening and a big thank you to Camilla for putting up with the back chat!!!

Paul, May 2013
Hi Jane. The wine tasting was brill. Robert was excellent, pitched it perfectly for the group. Everyone enjoyed and some of us learned a fair bit!! Would definitely recommend to a friend. Thanks again.

Emad, Apr 2013
Hi Jane, Saturday went really well, the feedback is that everyone enjoyed the session, Chris was very entertaining and educating, we all learnt few things about drinking wine and beer! I would definitely recommend him to friends.

Stuart, Mar 2013
Many thanks for the wine tasting event on Saturday, we had a brilliant time, the open the wine bottle challenge was a great way to finish.
The wines were very nice; and we now all want to go and get some English sparkling wine as we all thought it was better than Champagne :)
Simon is a credit to your company, he really did make the day. Thank you again!

Ross, Mar 2013
Everything went really well thank you, Toni was superb just as before. Very enjoyable and will definitely be using you guys again.

Ashley, Nov 2012
Thank you for your e-mail, the beer tasting was absolutely superb and we could not have wished for a better set up. Camilla was absolutely brilliant, thank you to her for putting up with us as towards the end we were all rather rowdy! I would do it again and have already recommended you to various friends.

Jonathan, Nov 2012
Thanks Jane, was an excellent event. Everyone really enjoyed it and was very complimentary about Chris. Will definitely recommend you to others.

John, Nov 2012
Yes all was good - Camilla did an excellent job. Many thanks to Camilla and you all for a great evening.

Gareth, Sep 2012
All went swimmingly, Sam handled us very well while keeping us entertained and well-informed. A great couple of hours and I’ll be recommending this to my friends!

Charles, Sep 2012
Thanks Jane, we had a great time. Alya was wonderful and managed to keep the competition going very well! It was pitched at just the right level as well. So all good basically!

Tom, Sep 2012
I just wanted to drop you a quick note saying thank you so much for Saturday night. Sam did an absolutely fantastic job - everyone thought it hit the perfect balance between fun and actually learning something! She also managed to put up with an increasingly rowdy crowd amazingly well and despite over-running on time, she stayed until the end. Really appreciated. Awesome job all round.

Roy, Jun 2012
Just writing to say thank you to Chris for coming along to do the wine and beer tasting on Saturday. Its always difficult to keep 11 guys entertained for a couple of hours and Chris did a great job of this. It was a good way to spend the afternoon prior to our evening out. I’m not sure any of us could be classed as experts but I certainly took away some key points which I will be implementing at my next dinner party! Thank you once again.

Paul, May 2012
Thanks for your email. Just to say we had a really good time on Saturday. Abbie ran an excellent session, answered all our questions and managed to keep 13 blokes in check very well.

Neill B, Mar 2012
Thank you for the beer and wine tasting on Saturday. The whole process from when I first approched 3050 was very smooth and the easiest bit of the stag weekend to organise. The venue worked really well. Rob was fantastic, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, made it fun and kept 19 rowdy stags in good order! I cannot recommend him highly enough. I would appreciate it if you could pass on to him my and my groups thanks. I am sure that I will use 3050 again in the future, as soon as i can find a suitable occasion, and would echo my above comments to anyone who asked.

Rob W, Feb 2012
Just to let you know Saturday night went really well and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thank you very much and thanks to Rob too.

Adriaan E, Jan 2012
Jane, Thank you very much for organising the beer tasting. The guys all enjoyed the evening and very much appreciated the energy that Chris brought with him.

Victoria H, Oct 2011
Thank you so so much - the boys had a fab time, thought Chris was great and still laughing now!!! Thanks again all was perfect!

Daniel W, Sep 2011
We had an absolute blast on Saturday with Erik! Totally loved it, and I received a lot of great comments from all the guys in attendance. Thank you very much. Cheers!

Matt L, Aug 2011
Hi Jane, yes it was great - we all really enjoyed it. Fun and informative and I particularly liked the Port provided!! Rob was great and has been very helpful to one of the lads in helping with info on a bottle of wine he had at home.

David C, Jul 2011
Thanks again for the Beer & Whiskey tasting. Everyone gave rave reviews and after they said how interesting it was to taste the different beers etc. Thanks for putting up with a rowdy bunch and I am glad I used you for the event.

Mark E, Jul 2011
The wine tasting was a great success and a terrific way to start the stag event. Antoni really got everybody talking and participating, and the wine was great [albeit we added some buckfast tonic wine to the tasting list for the stag - bit of an acquired taste!] Thanks again for your assistance.

Jonathan S, Jul 2011
I thoroughly enjoyed the tasting thank you, Chris got the balance just right between fun and education and the wines all worked really well. I have also had lots of positive comments from friends who were at the stag.

Jim G, May 2011
Thank you for the wine tasting on Saturday, Robert was great and pitched it perfectly for the group. The groom said it was the highlight of the weekend so thanks again for organising.

Richard S, Apr 2011
I am pleased to report that the beer and wine tasting was a complete success. We've had a lot of great feedback from the boys, most of whom gave the session with Toni as the highlight of their weekend. Please pass on our thanks to Toni who obviously put a lot of effort into making the afternoon such a great time.

Jon M, Apr 2011
Thanks again for hosting our wine tasting on Saturday. Everyone really enjoyed the event and I would recommend you to others. I'm sure everyone learned a few things and I certainly learned that I'm not very good at extracting corks in any hurry!

Peter Asprey, Nov 2010
Many thanks for doing yesterday. I think that everyone really enjoyed it. It was really interesting and good fun as well.

Graham H, Nov 2010
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for your help with our tasting at the weekend. Organizing the event was made painless and the tasting itself was fantastic with really good feedback from all 16.
I also want to say how impressed I was with Camilla. She handled a pretty tough crowd of rugby players with ease and really made the tasting work. Thanks again.

Liz W, Sep 2009
The Champagne Tasting was great fun - and very educational too! You achieved exactly the right balance for the occasion and managed to get a word in edgeways occasionally amongst 13 ever more bubbly ladies! It really was an exceptional start to my hen party and I am really grateful to you for making it so!

I was also really impressed with the ease of organising the evening for which I thank you all. I shall be recommending it to all my friends and family!

Ciaran Oreilly, Feb 2009
The recent wine/beer tasting was a great success. It gave the group a great opportunity to get to know each other and have a laugh with a bit of friendly rivalry. The beers, wines and the port where all excellent, and scoring them led to even more banter as the disagreements arose. It was the perfect way to get the party started, with a bit of education thrown in the mix for those interested. The instructor was informative and patent when the noise levels got a bit out of hand

Nic Robinson, Nov 2008
Just a quick message to say thanks for helping to organise a fantastic couple of hours beer and wine tasting for myself and the other stags. It was a great start to our day being a great deal of fun as well as learning more than we thought we would!! It was pitched perfectly and we would have no hesitation in recommending Thirfy/Fifty for any event in the future.

Our clients say...

Chris, Thanks so much for the wine tasting.  We all really enjoyed it and I think you pitched it wonderfully so that those of us who know next to nothing could learn a lot and those who already knew a bit learnt more and got the chance to show off!
