More than just a pub, we are a charming "good pub" at the front with a large garden, great for your group photos or for the children we have a play area, nestled around the back surrounded by views of the peak district sits our exlusive wedding garden, fully licensed for an outdoor ceremony. Our purpose built function suite, finished with exposed beams, satin drapes and canelabra to add an elegant touch. This blank canvas decorated in neautral colours is ready for you to add your own personal style.

Our “Exclusive” Wedding Garden is proving a great success, adding a “Wow” factor to our wedding ceremonies. This private outside garden is licensed for civil ceremonies leads off the function suite and offers magnificent views over the countryside as a backdrop to your wedding.  And,  with the sun setting over the garden, it is the perfect place for both day and evening guests to enjoy. This year we have added sails across the seating area of the garden to protect guests from showers allowing this area to be used on even more occasions despite our wonderful British weather!

Amazing wedding venue
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs McKinlay, on 26 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 27 May 2017

We couldn't thank The Bentley Brook Inn enough. The service we received before and during our special day was nothing but exemplary. Nothing was too much trouble, food intolerances and health needs taken into consideration and dealt with, with no qualms or stress for us. The food was to die for. They dealt with everything we needed quickly and calmly and the venue was beautifully decorated. The staff were friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble. Highly recommended for anyone's special day.

Magical Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Chris and Coco Mercer, on 21 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 06 May 2017

I've always wanted a grand country hall or an old extravagant hotel wedding. So when Chris suggested the quaint pub on the other side of town, I told him there's no chance we're getting married in our local pub! However, I entertained the idea and went along to see the venue. I was absolutely blown away how beautiful this building and its surrounding countryside is, how well kept the gardens are, how polite and friendly the staff are and how welcoming the owners, Wendy and Jo, made us feel. I do admit, coming from a hospitality background myself, I am normally a hard lady to please. I've been told many times my standards are too high. But by the time we left the charming inn, I was as giddy and excited as a toddler with candy. From there, I kept finding myself surprised time and time again at how easy Wendy made everything, how stress free it was to query things (there was a mountain of queries!) and the finer details of making the magical event our very own and personalised. The quality of service utterly surpassed my expectations, from the food, the help setting up, the organisation of everything, attention to detail and looking after guests (both on the day and ones staying the weekend) to even helping us clear everything up after. I can't thank Wendy, Jo and their team enough for all they have done for us. They truly are amazing! You can honestly tell they love doing what they do and see just how passionate they are. Chris and I felt so looked after from start to finish. On top of it all, we didn't need to remortgage the house to pay for it like we would have done going anywhere else of that quality!!

Amazing day at a beautiful venue
Venue Service

By Steph Shaw, on 17 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2017

We came to view the venue without booking an appointment and a member of staff was more than happy to show us around and was very accommodating - this formed a great first impression. All communication regarding choices, prices etc was timely received and all very clearly explained and documented. On the day the staff could not do enough for us or our guests. It was the little things that made a difference - they brought me my own Yorkshire pudding as mine did not originally come with one, our glasses were never empty. Everything you needed they were already doing it. The honeymoon suite is a beautiful room and was a pleasure to stay in after an amazing and magical day. There is nothing at all we could pick them up regarding - we were the first couple to get married using the outdoor space - which is a beautiful asset to the venue. If you choose to get married here it will be choice you wouldn’t regret? xxx

A perfect day
Venue Service

By Sarah & Mike O'Loughlin, on 19 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 07 Nov 2015

We looked at several wedding venues but when we went to look around the Bentley Brook Inn, it ticked all the boxes and we knew we wanted to get married here. The setting on the edge of the Peak District is beautiful, it has a warm and inviting feel about it and value for money is also great. As we had many guests coming from abroad we also wanted somewhere with nice rooms for people to stay in. All the rooms looked very clean, newly refurbished and tastefully decorated and the Beresford Suite is a lovely room to get ready in on the wedding morning and stay in after. Our wedding day went perfectly and so many people told us afterwards what a great day they had, complimenting the food and Wendy and the team. We were lucky and got a bit of sunshine after the ceremony (in November) so that we could take photos outside and enjoy canapés on the terrace. Then everyone was asked to go into the Dovedale Suite for the wedding breakfast and even though we had been decorating the room the day before, seeing it all lit up with all the guests waiting to welcome us was quite a moving moment. Everything looked stunning. The evening party was great fun too, with a hog roast everyone enjoyed and lots of dancing. We couldn't recommend the Bentley Brook Inn more, thank you for all your help in making our day so special!
