The best day ever!
I do not recommend
Accommodation; pods were all hired out, at least six months prior to the wedding. The night before the wedding, we arrived with the bride (2 adults & 2 children), and stayed in the bridal suite. We had to pay £400 damage deposit, all extra charges mounting up by this point. Upon entering the pod, which unfortunately had NOT been cleaned prior to our arrival, we discovered broken glass and prescription medication on the floor, extremely dangerous. We only had two towels, despite staff being informed that there would be a total of four in the bridal pod the night before the wedding. No sofa bed set up, even though £25 was paid for this.
Bar staff charging different amounts for drinks as the night went on, obviously staff felt they could take advantage once guests were under the influence of alcohol and assumed it would go unnoticed. Food served all in good time so all guests ate together. Despite having chosen meal options months in advance and All Manor being informed of my allergies, on the day, staff approached and said the pudding I had chosen is no longer suitable for me, surely the chef was aware of ingredients long before the wedding day, this happened with two guests. The alternatives were not to the same standard of the original food requested. Thankfully I was made aware of the ingredients and didn’t have an allergic reaction as I don’t have confidence the staff would know what to do in such an situation. Management need to rectify menu’s and make clear the ingredients and not approach guests on the day, poor organisation, one would assume All Manor use the same suppliers and are aware of ingredients.
Security guard come first aider was helpful.
Not all of the bride and grooms items were returned, the staff put everything in the corner of the dining room after the wedding so we could collect in the morning, it wasn’t until the bride was home that she realised items were missing.
At 5pm on the wedding evening we requested our key for the ‘Bean’ pod which we had hired. We was then rudely informed we must pay £200 damage deposit before All Manor Of Events will release our key, there was no disclosure of this additional payment before we arrived. Management claim the bride and groom received this information but again, management are being dishonest and lying. When paying the £200 damage deposit, we was told once the cleaners came at 10am and confirmed the pod was fine, that the deposit would then be returned, 10 o’clock came and went, we was told the cleaners weren’t in yet, so it would be the next day, in total we waited nine days for our deposit to be returned, All Manor claim it was the fault of the bank, but they just pass the buck and refuse to accept liability.
We paid additional £25 for sofa bed to be ‘made up’ in our pod, only for us to enter our pod and discover the sofa bed had not been set up, you pay £25 for the sheet and pillow which is stored under the sofa, and you are required to set up the sofa bed yourself, not something you want to be doing after a long day, again, more misinformation. The Bean pod was also not cleaned prior to our arrival, needs dusting and floor cleaned, bathroom looked as though it had a quick wipe over, minimal effort.
Having received my bank statement, it would appear I also have unknown transaction on my account, the only time I used my card was to pay the £200 damage deposit, so this fraudulent transaction has been logged with the bank and they are investigating.
If management changed their attitudes, actually employed a cleaner for the pods and was honest and upfront about their pricing, our experience would have been much better. The venue is beautiful but the staff, especially management staff let this venue down, I do not recommend.
Best Day Ever!!! x

Fantastic venue, great organisation and wonderful service.
We couldnt have asked for a better day...
Thankyou for the most incredible wedding day! We couldn’t have asked for a better day.....The venue, the food, the service, all the planning, was just amazing! Thankyou to Becky who looked after us all the way through. Can’t Thankyou enough! Mr & Mrs Bacon x
May I take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff for making Ali & Geoff's day so absolutely perfect! Our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and all were agreed that the venue was tremendous and the wedding breakfast fantastic!
Please pass on my grateful thanks to the Chef and also the very cheerful waiting staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them!
Once again Becky, thank you for all your help and attention.
We are still living in a bubble of the day!
We knew as soon as we viewed the venue the first time and was the only venue we looked at... that it was the one...we didn't even look anywhere else...
It was more than we could have hoped and dreamed of. Not even the rain ruined the day, maybe the bottom of my dress but not anything else!!
Thank you so much Becky for everything, and please pass on our thanks to the rest of the team.
We are still living in a bubble of the day!
Love the new Mr and Mrs Short
We wish we could have our wedding day again!
The food was amazing, we had so many compliments from our guests about the BBQ and the desserts (especially the Eton mess and brownies). The food on the BBQ was cooked perfectly, we really couldn't fault any of it. We had chips and baps in the evening, I couldn't manage it all but the chips were very nice.
We were quite unorganised with planning so it was very helpful to have a venue that does almost everything, and not much decoration is needed because it's so pretty anyway. Becky was super helpful in planning our wedding and always replied very quickly to any questions we had.
We had our ceremony in the garden Room which was beautiful, Becky and the staff did everything they could to make sure this could happen despite the weather almost not allowing it.
The DJs were also amazing from start to finish!
We would recommend this venue to everyone, some of our guests have said how much they would love to get married here in the future.
