Faultless elegance and superb service!We had our wedding at the Old Deanery last summer. The venue was beautiful, intimate and personal, the staff couldn't have been better and the food was utterly sublime. Everyone was so accomodating and helpful and we were able to incorporate many of our own touches. A fantastic venue for a more intimate, personal, unique wedding than in your average hotel.

I would like to tell you how wonderful it was to be with you! We enjoyed all the meals, the chocolate cake was also brilliant. All of us will remember the day and place for our lives! Thank you for being so tolerant and understanding, fore arranging everything so smooth. From Hungary it was not more complicated to carry out the whole lunch, that it would have been from anywhere else in the UK.
