The venue is amazing...
Venue Service

By Zoe and Adam, on 05 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2018

Everything from the first meeting to the last person leaving the wedding day went perfectly. The venue is amazing and the staff attentive, personable and very, very professional. We looked at around 12-15 venues around East Sussex and found this to be by far the best (though was a toss up with Broyle Place initially!) We can't thank Blackstock enough, it literally was the stuff of dreams! Cheesy review over, but fully warranted!

Perfect setting for our wedding

Perfect setting for our wedding. Food was stunning and Ben and the staff made the day seamless”

From start to finish Blackstock were amazing
Venue Service

By Liz and Rich, on 22 May 2018Date of Wedding - 13 May 2018

We got married at blackstock on the 13th May and had the most perfect day. From the moment we went to look at the venue every single member staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. We managed to turn our wedding around in 6 weeks and could not have done this without the excellent team at Blackstock. Ben and his team took care of absolutely everything and on the day we did not have to do a single thing as they had already taken care of it. We had the mix grill for mains and all of our guests loved it and said it was the best meal they had had at a wedding. From start to finish Blackstock were amazing and really looked after us on out special day and we would highly recommend them to anyone else. 10/10 Thank you

Wow what can we say...

Wow - what can we say! From start to finish you made life so easy for Linda & I, and we had a truly wonderful wedding day! Thank you for making everything so special. We will come in and see you all again soon.

The day was everything we had hoped for and more..
Venue Service

By Hayley and Alex Champion, on 22 May 2018Date of Wedding - 05 May 2018

We recently had our wedding here and I can honestly say the day was everything we had hoped for and more. We only booked the Tudor Barn, but this was plenty of room for our 100+ guests. The courtyard was the perfect spill out area and was a total sun trap. The Blackstock team couldn't do enough for us on the day and were diligent in the lead up to the event. They were in regular contact with us and made sure we had several face to face meetings to make sure we were all up to speed and on the same page. As someone who had never been to a wedding before, the team were also very helpful in suggestions for the day and also for suppliers. Our guests haven't stopped commenting on what a beautiful day it was and how good the hog roast was!! Thank you so much, Blackstock, for making our wedding perfect!

Everyone had a great time!
Venue Service

By Kate and Simon, on 09 May 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Apr 2018

Thank you for all your efforts in making our day so much fun and special. All out guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, the attentiveness of the staff and quality of the food. There were a few sore heads and feet the next day, which shows me that everyone had a great time! I must make a special thank you to Ben. He was fantastic on the day, and in the morning. The day ran incredibly smoothly with his help and he is a credit to your team that you should scream and shout about to other potential newlyweds looking to book! The whole team were fantastic, but I just wanted to highlight Ben's efforts on the day were hugely appreciated. Even though the Sun didn't come out much, Kate and I have many special memories from our big day, and some great photos to treasure. Thanks again, I'm sure we'll stop in again soon for another fantastic breakfast!

We really cannot recommend this venue enough!
Venue Service

By Stefanie Kemsley, on 03 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Mar 2018

We had our wedding here on Saturday 31st March 2018 and we really cannot recommend this venue enough! Everyone we spoke to was so lovely and made sure we knew what was happening every step of the way. They made sure the day was tailored to what we wanted. We would like to say a particular thank you to Ben, he was so calm and reassuring throughout the day. He was particularly helpful when the bridesmaids dresses fell in the mud and we needed to get them cleaned and dried quickly! Nothing was too much for him! We’re looking forward to coming back for walks on the grounds and reminiscing about our special day! Thank you so much, we really couldn’t have asked for more!

Highly recommend this place!!

The food was immense...
Venue Service

By Abbi Johnson, on 26 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2018

We had our Wedding here on March 3rd 2018. We are totally delighted to have made the decision to have our Wedding at Blackstock. From our very first meeting with Andre and Paul, to the final details discussions with Gill and Ben, to our incredible day ran by Ben and Sarah (as well as the amazing catering team from Fine Foods) - we felt so overwhelmed by how incredible everything was. The food was immense and all our guests gave lovely feedback, and certainly did not go hungry. The staff at Blackstock did such an amazing job at making the day run smoothly, even when I was 30 minutes late, and we had the chaos of the snow the day before. Chris and I have no hestiation in recommending Blackstock as the best Wedding venue in the South-East. It will forever be a special place for us!

One of the most memorable weekends of our lives!
Venue Service

By Chris and Abbi J, on 23 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2018

We’d like to reciprocate this message of thanks to you all. Last weekend was one of the most memorable weekends of our lives! We’d like to thank you so much for helping the day to run so smoothly, particularly when timings got shunted back several times. I know it wasn’t easy with the stress of the snow the day before, but you all were so calming and gave us confidence that it would be OK! Thank-you to Ben and Sarah for all the behind the scenes work on the day, as well as staying a little later to allow Andy and the boys to take their mountain of kit out. We are so glad we booked Blackstock for our Wedding. We had such an incredible time! The catering and food was outstanding. Everyone commented on how well it tasted and how it was presented, so please pass on our thanks to the catering team for this. We will of course put reviews on Facebook and TripAdvisor and can tag you in all our official wedding pictures when we receive them. Thanks so much once again Love and best wishes,

We had the best day
