Over the last seven years financial needs have grown with the business and focused on maintaining and improving profitability for a complex operation. This looks set to continue as the company embarks on further expansion of its venue portfolio and increasing the volume of individually-tailored weddings and corporate events in 2019.

What we do

Langricks handle Top Table’s day to day accounts, corporation tax, general book-keeping and payroll and also provide monthly management accounts and year end accounts. In recent months Lizzie Hill, under the direction of Mike Bowker, has also been in Top Table’s offices providing interim book-keeping support whilst they looked for a full-time member of staff.


  • Effective day-to-day financial management ensures efficiency and maximises profitability
  • Strategic management accounts allows for detailed performance review and forward-planning
  • Practical in-house support when needed has filled an important skills gap and maintained a consistent, professional approach


Both day-to-day and strategic financial service support over several years has provided Top Table with the foundation for success and given the management team control over its performance and future planning.
