    Pre-Covid fantastic, then shameful

    Pre-Covid we couldnt have faulted this venue. They got a great team of wedding coordinators and it is beautiful there. However they tried to squeeze more money out of us when we had to postpone through no fault of our own due to lockdown laws. Moreover the brides family and parents all live abroad making the planning in current times very difficult. 0 compassion. We eventually got ghosted and could only get a reply when we sent a legal letter of complaint, and then they said 'sorry you cancelled'(?) and proceeded to keep almost half of our money. Great when everything runs smooth but horrible when there's a problem. If you have a similar experience please note you can report businesses for unfair behaviour during Covid via the CMA.

    Thank you again for the best day ever!

    "I can’t even begin to thank the team at Coombe Lodge for the most perfect wedding day! We got married there 2 weeks ago today (8 Feb) and the whole day was amazing! Tom in particular has such attention to detail and nothing was a problem for him. He was a huge help and the day ran so smoothly! Everyone at the venue worked tirelessly to give us the best day ever and it truly was, the sun was even shining despite the threat of storm Ciara! The food was outstanding, the service was top class & all the little special touches make this place 10/10.

    Thank you again for the best day ever! "

    Thank you

    We just wanted to thank the team (especially Jasmine) for ensuring our big day went so smoothly. We have yet to find anyone who didn't thoroughly enjoy themselves, and the number of people who told us how good the meal was (without prompting) is incredible! Oh, and the rooms for those staying over where praised by everyone too!

    Jasmine - you have been superb throughout - professional and friendly, making sure everyone and everything was in the right place at the right time. All the best for the future X

    Everything was seamless

    Now that we are back to reality, and constantly thinking back to how well our day went, we really wanted to thank all of you! It really was the perfect day in every way and we couldn’t have asked for more. Everything was seamless, and every member of staff were friendly, calm, caring and just amazing.

    Tom and Clara were brilliant at making Jess feel at ease and happy prior to coming down, and allowed us both to enjoy our day to the fullest in every way. Your support, knowledge and the kindness to your care was incredible. The food was fantastic and the service to which it was delivered was perfect on both days. Thank you all so so much, we wish we could do it over and over again! Both of our families have not only continued to talk about the wedding daily but also how polished the service and delivery of our day was. You truly are the best at what you do and we are so grateful.

    Thank you again, wishing you a happy, healthy and successful New Year!

    The best day of our lives

    As you know, Patrick & Sophie (& I) fell in love with Coombe Lodge over a year ago. Not just because of what a stunning location & venue it is but also because of you and your team’s professionalism, attentiveness, polite, courteous, friendly and nothing is too much trouble approach from day 1.

    We can’t thank you, Martha & your team enough for guiding us up to and throughout a fantastic and memorable wedding day. It truly was amazing thanks to all the hard work put in by you & all of your team. We also greatly appreciated that you swapped your day off for us too!

    All our guests loved the venue, food & celebrations too but most importantly Patrick & Sophie loved every minute of a truly magical and memorable wedding day - ‘the best day of their lives’.

    Thank you and your team so, so much - we got there in the end and - boy - it was certainly worth it!"

    We are truly grateful

    "To every single member of staff that worked on our special day - we just wanted to say how truly grateful we are for all everyone did to make our day so incredible. Everything was perfect from the very start through to when we left after breakfast. You all worked so hard, nothing was too much trouble and you were all so professional and friendly. We can't thank you enough for making us feel so special and ensuring our guests had everything they needed. You are a credit to Coombe Lodge and I hope you realise how much we appreciate your hard work and kindness. With lots of love from Trisha & Simon X"

    I cannot even begin to say how thankful we are

    "I cannot even begin to say how thankful and happy we are that we had our wedding at Coombe Lodge! From start to finish we have been overwhelmed by their passion, organisation, support and kindness.

    Our wedding day was everything that we dreamed it could be. Our guests were amazed with the beauty of Coombe Lodge, the attentiveness off staff and everyone is raving about the food.

    Martha, you are incredible! Your ‘above and beyond’ stance on everything, since we began to liaise has left me awe struck. You are too kind and generous and will always have a special place in our hearts. If we could do it all over again, we would do exactly the same. I'm only sad we can't get married there again! Much love to you all, thank you so so much."

    The food... WOW

    "There was never a doubt in my mind I wasn’t not getting married here.. it was convincing my other half that I had to ... as you can imagine it took no convincing at all! The venue speaks for itself, everything about it is beautiful. Every single person we dealt with from start to finish were amazing, nothing was too much hassle.

    The food... WOW (that white chocolate mouse, best dessert ever!)
    Clara you were amazing! Throughout the whole wedding just popping up making sure everyone/ everything was ok and most importantly we were ok. Even the little things like making sure we had food saved back for us!
    Thank you so much Coombe Lodge you really are pros!"

    Our perfect day at Coombe Lodge

    "We had the most prefect wedding day at Coombe Lodge. The staff were amazing, the food was the best we have ever had at a wedding (everyone commented on it) and the scenery and dressing of the venue was second to none. The whole process could not have been more smooth in the run up and everyone was so lovely and helpful. The day was just amazing. You will never regret your wedding being at Coombe Lodge!"

    "From the minute we stepped into this beautiful venue we knew this was the perfect place for us to get married.
    We were made to feel very welcome & while we sat & talked with the wedding planner we watched the staff set up for that days wedding.
    The staff have everything organised to the last detail, they are very professional & nothing is too much trouble.
    Our wedding was in May this year & it was perfect , everything we imagined it to be & more.
    Tom & his team did everything on the day for us just as we had planned , Tom was so calm & helpful & just the best, I’ll never be able to thank him enough for all his help, particularly his sewing skills !!
    All our guests loved it & said it was the best wedding they’d been too & the food was just wow !! I wish we could do it all over again !!"

    Best decision we made

    We used Coombe Lodge as our wedding venue and it was one of the best decisions we made. In the build-up to the wedding, the staff, particularly Becca our coordinator, were patient and understanding and took away a lot of the stress involved.

    On the day they were fully professional and well-organised meaning we didn't have to worry about anything. The transitions between events of the day were seamless, even our slightly out-of-the-normal fire show. Becca kept the whole day running so smoothly that all we had to do was relax and enjoy our big day.

    As to the venue itself, it is a perfect venue with great views and a stunning interior. The food was superb and consistently complimented by the guests.

    Once again a massive thanks

    Sian and Matt
