Just a quick email to say a big thank you to you and the Five Arrows for a splendid wedding on Fri 2nd Oct. The day ran very smoothly and all of the food and drink on the day was delicious and served with an impeccable level of service. All of our guests remarked on what a wonderful place the Five Arrows is, so thank you to you and your staff for making it such a special day for us. And the sun shone to boot !

We're on the plane about to set off on honeymoon, so I can't write as much in this email as I would like. I just wanted to say that we can't thank you enough for giving us the perfect wedding day. Everyone at the five arrows was so accommodating and patient! The food was superb (loads of people commented on how good it was) and you were completely invaluable in making sure we got to experience the best bits of the day. Thanks so much for everything. (May 2015)

Loved Every Second!

We did want to pop you a short note to say a massive thanks to you and the team - the wedding was absolutely perfect and we loved every second of it. Funnily enough, one of our wedding gifts was a National Trust membership, so we'll definitely be back. (April 2015)

Firstly we would both like to say thank you to you and the whole team at the Five Arrows for all the hard work that went in to making our wedding day run so smoothly. It ran exactly to plan, exactly to time and without a hitch and the food was also excellent. All of our guests enjoyed themselves and said what a fantastic venue it was and what a great day they had. All of the staff on the day were very good and we could not have asked for better service. Please pass on our thanks to them and to the catering team.

My wife and I would like to say a huge thank you to the staff of the Five Arrows Hotel for making our special day so perfect. We were impressed by the attention to detail, care and consideration Chloe, the events organiser, showed from day one of organising our event. Nothing was too difficult and we very much appreciated the flexibility and 'can do' attitude from 'special vegitarian' requirements to food sampling, room advice and general guidance how to make the day special. We knew we had chosen the right place as soon as we sampled the food, absolutely fantastic. All our guests commented favourably and loved our day too. The venue is perfect for the smaller event 30-50 people and the whole day felt personal and intimate. We were both most impressed by the quiet efficiency of the staff; so much went on in the background that was transparent to us and our guests. Our photographers were also highly complimentary of the venue for the photographic opportunities, beautiful buildings and garden. There is nothing we would change apart from adding a few more hours to the day! Most highly recommended if you want an intimate hassle free wedding in a historic building filled with character. Having the whole venue for 24 hours utilising the 'exclusive' option was good value for money and added to the whole experience; breakfast with our guests the next morning was lovely. Thank you to Catherine, Anna and all the staff involved in our day.

Thank you!

As the Mother of the Bride I just want to say a big ‘ Thank you’ to Chloe and all at the Five Arrows. You all made Sophie & Gareth’s wedding really special. The food was delicious and everything was slick and seamless. We had so many compliments from all our friends and family. I certainly would recommend you to anyone. Please pass on my best wishes to all concerned especially Didier who did a magnificent job on the day.

December Wedding

By Tracey Gray, on 07 Feb 2013

Our deepest thanks to Chloe and all the staff that obviously worked so hard before and during our wedding on 21st December 2012. The day went even better than we could have imagined. All our guests complimented the food and the great service that they received. Nothing was too much trouble. All the staff were so attentive, friendly and personable and were great with the children. Those that stayed overnight said that their rooms were lovely and that breakfast was superb. Please pass on our greatest thanks to everyone that was working before and during our wedding, they helped to make it a day to remember!!!! Hopefully we will see you all again in the future

Wow, Wow, Wow
Venue Service

By Nat Eaves, on 07 Feb 2013

What a truly amazing, beautiful magical day we had on Friday 2nd November 2012! Each and everyone of our guests praised us on our venue choice, service, how cosy and intimate everything was from start to finish. It was beyond perfect and we had a more than perfect day! ALL the staff that were working on the day worked so utterly hard and nothing was ever too much hassle and they always had a smile on their faces. Our praises go out to the chef and all the kitchen staff who made the most wonderful food. Guests that stayed also commented on how pristine the rooms were. We are so thankful for finding The Five Arrows to have our wedding day at and just couldn't have imagined for it to have taken place anywhere else! The whole team are a bunch of wonderful people!

Beautiful, Amazing Day!
Venue Service

By Jenny Page, on 07 Feb 2013

Firstly could I thank the staff for doing such a good job! Our meetings up to the wedding were such fun and made planning effortless. I loved being able to dress our own tables! I enjoyed the day before the wedding almost as much as the day itself. We prepared the tables and barn with rose petal confetti, tea lights and wicker hearts and it was lovely to be able to look round everywhere while it was quiet. The wedding day itself went so quickly. The Coach House looked stunning! I loved the uplighting that Evolution Live did, it showed the barn off to its full potential. The marquee also looked stunning! It was very roomy and I loved the cream carpet concerns and the twinkly lights. The Five Arrows garden looked beautiful. Our guests took full advantage of it sitting outside both before the meal and in the evening and it greatly added to the occasion. The food was delicious from the beautifully presented canapes to the salads and chicken and prawn skewers, light and attractive, to the chocolate desert, to die for (my daughter ate three slices!). Also the hog roast was one of the best that we have had especially the crackling! Our little suite at the end of the garden was gorgeous and the bathroom was so squeaky clean and beautifully presented. All in all we couldn’t have asked for more! Steve and I had the most fantastic weekend and I am having huge wedding withdrawal symptoms and just want to do it all over again! We will definitely be back for dinner at the Five Arrows and hopefully see you then!
