An amazing day and everything was perfect
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Briton, on 06 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 21 Dec 2019

Rob and I would like to thank you all at ’The Devonshire’ for hosting our daughter’s wedding. It was truly an amazing day and everything was perfect. We have so many wonderful memories now and can’t wait to see the official photographs. Our guests have been so complimentary of the venue, the food, the service, everything in fact! We couldn’t have wished for anything more. Thank you Robyn so much for the huge part you played in making Amy and Adam’s wedding day so special.

You ALL made it a day we shall always remember

By Sheila & Jeremy Holmes, on 01 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2019

We were extremely impressed with the overall service we received at the Devonshire Arms for our daughter Bridget’s wedding. We were greeted on arrival in the car park with a gentleman holding an umbrella and assisting with the luggage – What a lovely welcome! The wedding food was exceptional and the service second to none. Our sincere thanks to Robyn who worked exceptionally hard to make sure everything went smoothly and was on hand to make sure it did so. You ALL made it a day we shall always remember – it passed too quickly We have had so many message and phone calls from our guests who were greatly impressed and congratulated us on our choice of venue. Once again our sincere thanks to you all. Sheila & Jeremy Holmes (Mother and Father of the Bride (Bridget Wilkinson)

By Andy & Katie, on 30 Jun 2020Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2019

We got married at the Devonshire arms on the 1st June 2019. I can honestly say from beginning to end they were faultless. Right from looking round the venue to booking and all of the planning before the day was perfect. Robyn who was our wedding planner made our experience a dream. She was on the ball straight away, nothing was a ‘silly’ request and she dealt with everything we wanted to make our day special. We can’t fault the Devonshire Arms, our day was truly magical. If we could have our day again, I wouldn’t change a thing. The venue is beautiful and staff were amazing. We had a lot of feedback from our guests who all said positive things about the venue.

Just a little line to thank the staff
