Situated in the heart of Clifton Village, West Yorkshire, Bert's Rooms and Events (at The Black Horse Inn Clifton), is an intimate wedding venue steeped in history. Family-owned for over 70 years, this distinctive 17th-century inn radiates a traditional British charm that blends in effortlessly with the surrounding Georgian architecture. With open fires and beautiful outdoor settings, this is a wonderful venue for a cosy country wedding.

Fully licensed for civil ceremonies, Bert's Rooms and Events is ideal for laidback weddings, allowing couples to host every stage in one inviting space.

The aesthetic continues within the inn, with its oak beams and exposed brick and traditional open fires. Civil ceremonies can be held in The Wellington Suite or Clifton Room, which accommodates 60 guests. This secluded event space is a beautiful blank canvas for couples to craft their unique stamp. The space can fit up to 60 for a seated meal with doors that open out onto a gorgeous courtyard, ideal for post-ceremony drinks. Evening receptions we can hold a maximum of 90-100 guests.

Beautiful hotel and wedding venue

We have recently had our wedding at the Black Horse Inn and we had the best day. The wedding coordinator Lydia was fantastic on the day and also leading up to the wedding, everything was organised perfectly and she was always on hand to answer any questions. Lydia and the whole team were brilliant on the day and made sure everything ran smoothly.
The venue looked beautiful with lots of character and the food was amazing - all of our guests commented on how nice the food was.
We cannot recommend this venue enough, thank you for helping to make our day so special and perfect!

The best wedding venue with the best planner

We had our wedding here in November 2023. It was perfect and ran like clockwork from start to finish. It's such a fabulous,intimate venue and it stole our hearts the first time we booked an appointment for a look round with Lydia.

We then came back to look at the venue again at a wedding fair to see the room dressed for a wedding and fell in love with it again and got a good idea of how we wanted our tables etc.

Lydia and her staff were fantastic,nothing was too much trouble and any queries/questions were answered really promptly. Lydia was also great at offering advice or her thoughts of what would look good/work on the day and never seemed to tire of me emailing every week. The food was fabulous and all our guests commented on how good it was and plentiful. There wasn't one criticism,moan or fault about Bert's rooms I could give and couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Don't waste time viewing other wedding venues just book here,you won't regret it!

Wedding review

We had our wedding here in October 2023, we were a bit unsure of the size to start - we had 53 guests on the day time and about 80 for the evening which was just right - cosy with a lovely atmosphere. Lydia was very attentive and organised everything to the T. The courtyard was decorated lovely with hanging baskets and lanterns which was very pretty. We used Lydia’s in house DJ which was good.
Would highly recommend.

Brilliant Experience

Our day was absolutely perfect. Lydia was brilliant and so helpful throughout. We booked the package that meant everything was included in one price, including hotel rooms, decorations, and the DJ. Everyone commented on how good the food was and hoe pretty the venue is. We would definitely recommend to anyone!

Amazing Venue & Staff

We had our wedding here the week before Christmas. The team were amazing on the day and Lydia, the wedding organiser was an absolute treasure from the minute we met her months before. She did everything we asked of her and made the rooms look stunning on the day. Nothing was too much trouble for her. The honeymoon suite was lovely and the food for the wedding breakfast was gorgeous. We would recommend it to anyone looking for an intimate wedding venue. Thank you to everyone at the Black Horse / Bert's Rooms. You made our day so special!

Only praise for the Black Horse Inn

Only praise for the Black Horse Inn and wedding planner Lydia whom we met with 18 months before our wedding.
We knew it was the ideal venue for us; gorgeous setting with beautifully decorated boutique style bedrooms and perfect for our intimate ceremony of 30 day and 60 evening guests.
Lydia was very responsive to my emails and answered all queries quickly.
The hotel can cater for vegan and gluten free diets alongside the standard menu.
I also went to their wedding fayre to see examples of table decorations and set ups and opted for a large rectangle so everyone could see each other. We provided our own table decorations, mocked up a setting at home, took photos and sent them to the Black Horse Inn so they could see how the tables were to be set on the day and they were absolutely perfect.
Everything went to plan and we had the best day ever

Absolutely Wonderful

I and my partner married here on 31st March 2024. We couldn't have asked for a better day. The staff were incredible throughout the process. Lydia supported us from the first viewing of the venue all the way through and really helped to make our day special. The venue was magical and the food was amazing! We had a hog roast and very much recommend this to all! There was plenty of food for everyone and leftovers! We were able to tailor everything to what we wanted and Lydia was able to support all our choices. Couldn't have asked for a better day

March 2024 wedding- at the perfect place!

We had our wedding here in March with the help of the wonderful Lydia. She made everything possible for our special day. From day one when we booked to 2 years later on the day we got married Lydia helped us so much! Amazing guest bedrooms, easy check in for the guests, one of the best breakfast for the day after and the food was out of this world at the wedding! Couldn’t have asked for a better venue, wedding planner and a better day! Nothing was too much for Lydia and the team.
If you are looking for a wedding venue or hotel this is 110% worth visiting!

9th March 2024

WOW! We had our wedding 5 weeks ago, and it was truly amazing. The attention to detail, the little requests I made were all done. Lydia was utterly brilliant and so were all her staff that worked on our wedding day. The only downside I never wanted the day to end! A beautiful venue, I felt I could relax, give Lydia my requests and not worry about them again. The food was beautiful. The bridal suite was beautiful. Thank you so much for our amazing day xx

Wedding 19/01/24

What an amazing experience we had , we held our wedding reception here and nothing was too much trouble.
Everything was perfect and I couldn’t have asked for anything more, Lydia was exceptional on helping us with everything, even helping us out with all the wedding decor/accessories she has.
I can’t thank her enough with the short amount of time we had to plan our wedding. She was super helpful and took the stress from us.

We stayed over and the rooms are phenomenal the beds are super comfy and the breakfast the next morning was the best. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff are very polite.

Thankyou so much Lydia and your team.

We had a lovely intimate wedding earlier this month, only 25 of us but it was absolutely perfect! They are a dog friendly too, so we even got to have our dog to be part of our day which was the icing on the cake for us.

Amazing Day!!

We booked our wedding at quite short to notice as we were let down by another venue. Lydia and her staff were amazing on the day and to the run up of the wedding. Nothing was too much trouble and it all ran like clockwork. Food was amazing, bedrooms were beautiful. We couldn’t ask for more!

The BEST winter wedding!

I don't really know where to start but we had our wedding late November for 45 guests. The staff and Lydia worked so hard to give us the best day that we will never forget. The venue is gorgeous and very quaint, perfect for a more intimate wedding! The value for money is excellent and so many guests commented on the food, service and the quality of the hotel rooms. Just wish we could do it all again!

The Williams Wedding 6/10/23

If you are looking for an intimate wedding venue with loads of flexibility in a place with lots of charm and character, then this venue is the one for you.

Lydia and team were amazing start to finish and the food was very tasty and received good feedback from all our guests. Our day went without a hitch and nothing was too much trouble.

The venue is deceptively large and can hold a large amount of people spread throughout and can be easily sectioned into different areas throughout the day/night. Lydia has a wealth of knowledge in wedding planning and access to contacts for every aspect of planning a wedding.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our day so incredibly perfect.
