Wedding of Our Dreams
By Mr & Mrs R Stephenson, on 21 Aug 2013
We got married at The Worsley Arms Hotel on 17.08.2013. From the moment we first contacted Tony at the worsley arms we received a fantastic, professional high standard of service.Nothing was impossible. Our wedding was completely faultless thanks to Tony and all the staff (Josh & Nick) at The Worsley Arms Hotel. The Hotel is beautiful and the marquee utterly stunning and the perfect wedding venue. The food was delicious and all the guests commented on how nice it was. The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained also.
We only contacted The Worsley Arms 6 weeks prior to the wedding itself as we were left disappointed with our first choice. We are soooo glad we changed venues it was the wedding of our dreams. We would just like to say Thank You to Tony and all the staff from the bottom of our hearts for a perfect day.
The Perfect Venue!

We celebrated our wedding here in July 2012, and were absolutely floored by the by the care Tony, Nicci and their team took over our day, from the day we walked in off the street to check the place out, to the moment we left after spending a fantastic weekend in their capable hands.
From the moment we met Tony, just a few months before we planned to get married, he was completely in tune with what we wanted - completely professional but also more than approachable; in the run up to the day I appreciated his calm more than I realised at the time! Nicci was on hand too, at every step of the way to make sure our menus were just perfect (for one half of the family, it was their first English wedding, so we were anxious to please our guests, but Tony and Nicci were also keenly aware that we had a strict budget to keep to.)
Though we were trying to keep our costs down as best we could, the staff never showed us anything less than full priority, ensuring we were the only wedding taking place that weekend, assisting in everything from recommending hairdressers (there is one across the street; my bridesmaids and I booked her out for the morning of the wedding and can highly recommend) to setting up our tables when they realised we were pushed for time.
All in all, the weekend was perfect; I can honestly say that there was nothing to complain about. Food: beautiful; hospitality (and turning a blind eye when the disco went on a little longer than anticipated): second to none; venue: picturesque and very capably-staffed. We felt so welcomed and looked after, and would recommend them warmly.
WOW WOW WOW

We were looking for somewhere really special and boy did we find it. Tony and his staff looked after us so well. The hotel and food were fantastic and more than we could have wished for. All our guests commented on how brilliant the place/day and wedding was. If you're looking for an idyllic, beautiful country setting for your wedding then look no further.
Perfect for a relaxed country wedding
By Dave and Ellen Moore, on 20 Aug 2012
When we were looking for a wedding venue we had a long wish list. We wanted to have the wedding and the reception at one venue with a beautiful outside space, great food and somewhere our family and friends would feel relaxed and comfortable. Far too many of the venues we looked at expected us to fit into one of their template weddings. It was the stunning garden that made us consider the Worsley and once we’d tasted the food we were sold. Tony never once tried to dictate how our day should go but worked with us and offered helpful advice to make sure we got just the day we wanted.
On our actual wedding day in May 2012 everything went perfectly. Every time I wondered if something had been done I found that Tony and the team had taken care of it (down to tiny details like making sure the groom had first call on the iron the morning of the wedding!). All of our guests commented on how relaxed and absolutely ‘us’ the wedding was.
This year we returned for a relaxing break over our first anniversary. Once again the welcome was warm and friendly, the food excellent and the atmosphere put us completely ease. It is wonderful to have found a wedding venue we can keep going back too and we’re certain we will.
Couldn't have wished for more

We married at the Worsley Arms in September 2011. We'd spent quite some time searching for a wedding venue in the York area, but not quite found that place that place that was right for us - until we came across the Worsley Arms. As soon as we made our first visit we could just see ourselves and our guest there, it seemed to tick every box, a beautiful village location, lovely gardens, a room to hold the ceremony, an optional marquee for the reception (which we took and would definately recommend) and friendly staff. The day itself was a resounding success, Tony and his team were absolutely without fault, the food was fantastic, the setting perfect and it was a day which was enjoyed by all. We could not have imagined a better day.
Pretty setting for countryside wedding

We got married in May 2012. We had a smallish wedding of 40 people and wanted a traditional, but informal wedding somewhere we could have the ceremony and reception at the same place with no time limitations. Hovingham itself is a really pretty village, so there are some great backdrops for photographs. It’s only about half an hour’s drive from York, and if guests book and share taxis from York station, the return fares are very good value. The Worsley Arms is an old and inviting hotel, with cozy sitting rooms and a great garden – the weather was good on our wedding so we were able to stay out in the garden for the evening. The food was really delicious, and the options to choose from were so many that it can be difficult to chose. The staff at the hotel were really helpful and professional and made sure each part of the day rolled smoothly to the next so that we didn’t need to worry or even think about anything other than enjoying the day. We had a fantastic day.
Danielle & Cirk Newton Wedding 7th July 2012

Beautiful venue and very helpful
Danielle and I held our wedding reception on he 7th July 2012 in the marquee at the Worsley Arms. We were most impressed with the help and attention to detail from everyone there. The gardens are beautifully kept up to and not only did we have the marquee and the garden but also the hotel bar and coffee room. We had a fantastic day and would recommend the Worsley Arms to anyone wanting a memorable day. Thank you to all the help from Mr T Finn and his staff
Highly recommended wedding venue
By Thomas and Charlotte Williamson, on 22 Jul 2012
We got married in April 2012 at The Worsley Arms and had a wonderful wedding day. The hotel suited our needs perfectly and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was excellent and the hotel has a good selection of rooms available. This venue also offered very good value for money compared to some of the other venues we looked at. Thank you once again to Mr Finn and his team.
Just a Perfect location

Excellent day in a great venue
By Matthew & Anna, on 18 Jul 2012
From arrival at the venue, following ceremony elsewhere, the celebrations at the Worsley Arms were well organised and everything went to plan. The host, Mr Finn, was extremely attentive and ensured that everything ran smoothly. A very enjoyable day, lovely food in a great venue.
1st Class friendly service, beautiful location!
By Sean Finlayson, on 13 Jul 2012
We were married in March 2011 and the Hotel staff helped make it a fantastic day! The hotel itself and it's facilities are excellent. Ours was only a 'small family do', but nothing was too much trouble for Mr Finn and his professional, yet friendly staff. Every detail was taken care of, leaving us to enjoy our day! The food was brilliant. I cannot recommend The Worsley Arms highly enough. Plus, although money was not an issue, the overall cost was extremely good value. You will not be disappointed if you 'got hitched' at this lovely hotel in the very picturesque village of Hovingham. Go for it!
