If you're looking for your dream wedding venue, then look no further - from the moment we saw the venue online we fell in love. Our expectations were exceeded when we walked in though! From the moment we started planning we knew this was the venue for us, and now the 'deed is done' we can certainly say we made the right choice. Where to start... The food was totally fabulous. All of our guests commented on the high quality, and generous portion sizes both for meat eaters and vegetarians. All left feeling incredibly full, but very satisfied. A number even commenting on never attending a wedding with food this tasty. The canapés were also a huge hit during the reception, as were the Pimms and ginger ale beverages. The pork baps; huge but again so tasty! Definitely worth every penny. The team that served us on the day were extremely warm and friendly - both us and our guests felt that they could not do any more for us. Ellis and Kevin ensured that the day ran smoothly, to plan and that we were happy throughout. Kevin helped our guests arrange taxis, and rallied groups together to share cars back to their hotel. We found the experience leading up to the wedding positive, with prompt responses to our questions and responses via the notes system. It was a great way to track communications, especially with many things going on at once when planning a wedding. It was a dream come true for us, and we are looking at our photos as we speak feeling extremely warm and contented. Thank you to all of the team who made our dream come true. - May 2017
Our daughter got married at your beautiful venue.  My husband and I would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making it the most wonderful of weddings.  You all worked incredibly hard and the politeness and friendliness from you towards all our guests was fantastic.  The food was exceptional as was the constant replenishment of wine and bubbly.  Superb service at all times .... we were able to relax with our friends and family without having any worries about anything else.  We really are so incredibly grateful that both our daughter and son-in-law had the most happiest day, and that all tireless preparations during this last year worked beautifully. We shall never forget the part you all played in achieving a fairytale to remember. - May 2017
