Amazing venue for ourwedding

We got married at The Bentley Brook Inn this past weekend and it was amazing. The venue itself is gorgeous and in a perfect location, all the rooms are to a high standard. All the guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, how great the food was and the staff were amazing both on the day and all through the build up. Wendy & Emma were super helpful, quickly answering any of the many emails I have sent over the past year and they were both there all through the weekend to make sure the day ran smoothly. Cannot rate this venue highly enough!

We had the most perfect day at Bentley Brook

Where do I start, the whole day from start to finish was just perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for Wendy and her team. From arriving at 11am (ceremony at 12) to falling into bed at midnight everything was wonderful. The food was amazing, we had so many compliments from our guests about the food on the day and afterwards. We decided 48 hrs before the wedding to change the evening food from sausage cobs to a hog roast and Emma came up trumps and managed to source a pig with only 48 hrs to go and what a success it was, again everyone raved about how good it was. We never felt rushed at any point, everything flowed so well, if we needed any help someone was on hand in an instance. The weather was amazing so apart from the 2 hours or so where we had the meal we were outside all day. Even the band we had hired was able to play outside, you cannot beat sitting in the sunshine, watching a band with all your friends and family with the rolling Derbyshire hills in the background. We cannot rate the venue and the staff highly enough and we thank our lucky stars that Bentley Brook was available on the date we had picked for our wedding. xx

Amazing Views and locations for Your wedding photos

We can't praise all the staff , the chef and waiters, the DJ and all involved on our wedding day. They went above and beyond to ensure the day was a success from start to finish. The food was amazing and commented on by all our guests. The service was excellent, could not find fault.

Staff event sent someone down the road to stop the roadworks noise during our service outside.

The rooms were beautiful and had everything we needed and all our guests that stays enjoyed a breakfast room together the following morning

Would not hesitate to recommend if you want your day to be extra special

The perfect Wedding 12/11/22

Our wedding was perfect from booking to becoming Mr and Mrs Wiggins-Scott. Wendy and the team are lovely and are always on hand to ask with nothing being to much trouble. The weather held for us to get married outside and the views are amazing. The food served is delicious and plentiful so no one will be hungry. Miles the DJ reads the room perfectly and we didn’t have a moment from the first dance that the dance floor was empty.
We had so many comments that our wedding was the best wedding people had ever attended and I can’t thank the Bentley Brook team enough for making them comments possible.

From our first meeting with Wendy, we knew that we had picked the best. The personalized and courteous attention was second to none.

Covid changed our original plans of a small registry office wedding and a beach blessing in Australia. But boy We are so glad it did.
Bentley Brook Inn was never on our list.
To be honest we had never even heard of it. It was mentioned during a conversation and that was the start which led to the best wedding we could ever have imagined.
From our first meeting with Wendy,
we knew that we had picked the best
Forever grateful

Amazing Team and Venue

We had our wedding at the Bentley Brook and we wouldn't change a thing! Wendy, Emma and the team made sure the day went smoothly and we didn't have to worry about anything on the day so we could concentrate on getting married. We were very lucky with the weather in March and the team sorted out the garden area on the day so we could get married outside with the stunning views. The team was there to guide us through the day and the food was amazing (and they also kindly catered other options for a few people). Would recommend anyone who is on a small budget to check them out!

Absolutely amazing!

Absolutely amazing! We were lucky to choose this place for our wedding and ceremony. It was organised so perfectly! We got married in the wedding Garden, overlooking an amazing view. The room where we sat down to eat was decorated and set up in the most perfect way! We had such a great ceremony. It was a dream.
The food was outstanding! It was so delicious I cannot even describe it. The team of the venue were helpful and caring! We had an amazing time, and I’ll be honest, it was better than we imagined and dreamed it would be!

Definitely Recommend to everyone!

I can't iterate how pleased I am that we chose the Bentley Brook Inn to host our wedding reception this summer. Wendy and the team went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. The Dovedale Suite was stunningly decorated, and there is great flexibility to decide how exactly you'd like your tables etc. The food was unbelievably delicious and the day ran so smoothly, with every detail attended to. I am not over-exaggerating here when I say that I can't count the number of positive comments I had from our guests about the wonderful food, venue, down to the quality of the house wine. To top it off, the Bentley Brook is so well priced compared to the competition in the area. And the Beresford Suite (which the Bride and Groom for their wedding night, included in the package) has the comfiest bed in the world!
