    Our wedding day at Blakes was magical!

    Our wedding day at Blake’s was magical! Everything was so well planned and executed. The food, the decor and the staff were perfect. Everything went so smoothly... It was great that we could contact Angela or yourself whenever we had a query or anxious moment and when we asked for something a little out of the ordinary, you went above and beyond to oblige and make our wedding day extra special. Not sure that you've ever had a Greek-style wedding there before, but where I was worried there would be a problem - there wasn't! All our guests complimented us on our choice of venue, the grounds, the staff, the music and the food, many said it was the best wedding they had ever been to ??
    Given a choice of venue for a future wedding or event, Blake’s would definitely be top of our list!

    Nothing was too much trouble...

    In terms of feedback we would like to add you especially were very helpful, very accommodating and very understanding all key aspects leading up to our big day nothing was too much trouble for you no matter how big or small the request. The venue was decorated to an amazing standard and just how we envisaged. We would like to pass on our thanks to you and your whole team from the Chef to the bar staff to the waiters and waitresses they were all amazing.
    I would have no hesitation in recommending Blake’s as a wedding venue to anybody as the package and service supplied was professional and great value for money.

    It was truly magical.....

    We held our twilight wedding in The View Bar at Blake’s on 8th October. It was truly magical and more than we ever could have wished for. A beautiful venue and the most amazing staff who helped make this a day to remember and treasure forever. Special thanks to the wonderful Events Manager Angela and the lovely Kristy who made sure our wedding ran smoothly on the night. Just cannot fault this venue or the staff, it was so perfect.

    We really had the most perfect day!

    I had my wedding reception at Blake's back in December. I can't thank the team enough for ensuring the day went smoothly. We really did have the most perfect day! Particular thank you to Angela who took care of all the details from start to finish; being really accommodating to ensure we had a really personal day. I felt much more relaxed knowing it was all taken care of. The food was brilliant and everyone commented on this throughout the day. Overall, great staff, great food, great venue - would definitely recommend!

    25th anniversary party

    My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Blakes in May. The venue, Angela, her team and the food was amazing. However, just one negative... we used their in-house disco - Justin (disco services) and despite meeting him at Blakes open day last year and discussing our requirements we sent him our personal playlist. The DJ he put in place for our party decided to ignore our list playing what HE wanted to play clearing the dance floor on a number of occasions. I've complained to Justin several times and he has completely ignored me. I highly recommend you book a different disco.

    My Wedding Day

    I had been planning my wedding for 2 years and I can safely say it was the best day of my life.
    Best day, best venue, best service, best food, best events team to help me plan it all. I would like to say a BIG thank you to Angela and Kim who really made my day so special! The service and food was honestly amazing and I would recommend Blakes to everyone, the staff went out of their way to help us with whatever we needed. I hardly had do lift my finger and it was all done and planned out like I wanted.
    Actually Im sad its all over.
    Thank You

    A Truely Lovely Venue

    After having my Wedding at Blakes Golf club i would recommend the Venue to anyone! The service was amazing, the food was brilliant, and everyone was very welcoming. Nothing was to much to ask and all the staff were very helpful. We were sorted taxis on request and we were not rushed to leave the venue. I would like to say a Big Thank You to Angela and all the events team at Blakes, You made my day perfect!

    A big thank you

    Just wanted to say a big thank you for organising and carrying out a fab evening for us.
    All the staff could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for everyone and so many friends expressed their appreciation of the high level of service they experienced. The food was delicious and was enjoyed by all.
    All the staff were so friendly and one even had the idea of a 'balloon ceremony' to mark the end of the night and staff participated in it too.
    Our toastmaster, dvd man, dj and crew were most appreciative of the hot beverages they had at the end of the evening. We appreciate all the hard work that everyone did to make the occasion so memorable. Thank you all so much.

    30th June 2007

    Just a quick note to thank you for the function last week. The response we had from family and friends is amazing - evening was superb.
    Comments included great venue, great food both for the main meal and buffet and the staff were absolutely superb. All day they were very friendly and efficient and there were lots of them. Most comments generally end with "Its the best wedding i have been to, how did you find that place"

    Overall the day was successful that there is now pressure on those that have weddings coming up.
