    Karen mother of the bride

    Wanted to reiterate what Adam has previously and recently written about this venue.
    My daughter and fiancé chose Cave 2 years ago and 4 months before their wedding date they changed the goal posts. The wedding could no longer go ahead in the barn hall because they had turned it into a restaurant and they had erected a ‘dedicated’ but hideously tacky marquee for weddings. When choosing a venue we looked at several options, my daughter never wanted a marquee but I have to say the ones we saw were a million times better than this. If they intended to offer this as an alternative, the least they could do was have it dec’d out professionally.
    As per Adam, they were told they could have the barn hall but when they asked to go ahead as planned a manager called them to say it was not an option. We went for another sneaky peak and it looked even worse than before so my daughter and fiancé decided to cancel and have luckily found a wonderful much more professional outfit in Cobham Hall.
    Avoid avoid avoid is my advice to you. This organisation is foremost a business and are not interested in your feelings or how much effort and expense you have put into your day. You will make your plans, pay your deposits for other services and they will whip the rug from under your feet thus destroying your special day.

    Incredibly unprofessional with a disgusting attitude to customers.


    Me and my fiancee Booked our wedding for the cave hotel in November 2019 for June 2021, at first it was going great wedding co ordinator was brilliant, then out of the blue we get a e-mail in March 2021 showing off their new marquee for weddings, very confused at this as when we booked it was for their barn hall, so we arrange to meet the wedding co ordinator in April and she assured us the cave would let us have our wedding where we originally booked it for and they were great because they were happy to move our date to 1/10/21.

    upon my fiancee viewing the venue in May for final layout etc, she had an off hand comment that we could only have half the barn hall now and no DJ in the evening, so we email them that night to ask them to explain what is going on. they then e-mailed us explaining that we couldn't have the barn hall as agreed and we're having all weddings in their marquee from now on. obviously we were not very happy with this as we booked it 18 months or so ago, so we asked them to honour the contract and to have the wedding in the barn hall as agreed in 2019.

    then had a random phone call at 7:40 pm one evening from a manager we have never spoken to before, we explained all we wanted was what was agreed in 2019 he said they could not honour the contract and it was either have our wedding in their marquee or have our deposit back, with no discount offered, when we refused to accept as it would be far too different from our dream wedding he refused to pay for any deposits we would loose ie photographer, DJ, car, so now we have lost hundreds of pounds because cave refused to honour a contract they agreed to and we have absolutely no chance of getting another venue this year.

    So if you like companies who can't even honour a simple contract, waste your time for 18 months, leave you losing hundreds of pounds, don't inform you of what's going on or even ask your opinion if they were to change the venue, cave is the place for you.

    Such an amazing venue!

    Thank you so much to everyone at The Cave Hotel and Golf Resort for making our wedding such a magical day. The staff went above and beyond to ensure everything was absolutely perfect. A huge special thank you to Maddie for being there every step of the way from booking to the big day! We were absolutely delighted with the change of area to the marquee, having the private space for our guests only was just amazing! It is clear that a lot of time, effort and love has gone into making the marquee a perfect venue for the wedding breakfast and evening reception. We really cannot fault anything about how they managed our day, even with the last minute change to an indoor ceremony due to inclement weather! The bridal suite was the perfect place to unwind after a busy day and we look forward to returning for our first anniversary.

    A very special day

    My son and daughter in law were married on Saturday followed by the reception at the golf club.
    From start to finish everything was perfect. Jamie coordinated everything, supported by an efficient, smart and friendly team of staff.
    As there was an event at the club the night before, we could only partially set up ready for the reception, which slightly concerned me, but when we all arrived, it looked beautiful. Everything was done just as we would have done and we were welcomed by two smiling ladies with Pimms!
    The three course meal was outstanding in quality and quantity; soup or bruschetta, chicken roast or salmon and veg in white wine sauce, Eton mess or toffee apple crumble. Could not have been better - in fact we were so satisfied, those if us who were there all day, barely touched the evening buffet.
    I can not recommend this venue enough to anyone wanting a venue with character, comfort, beautiful outside space and more.

    My daughters wedding was perfect

    Dear Sue, words cannot express how grateful we are to you and all your team at Boughton for making our daughters wedding so special, from the first day we sat with you to discuss details, right up to the moment they left for their honeymoon in the evening, everything was carried out with kindness, care and professionalism. We have had so many lovely comments from their guests, about the food, how lovely the staff were, how pretty the room looked.
