Thank you

A huge thank you for looking after us all so well on our wedding weekend. It was simply the happiest weekend of my life and staying at Greyfriars surrounded by my family in such a happy and friendly place made that possible. We felt so at home and it really was just incredibly special.

Lovely venue, let down by organisation & service
Venue Service

By Laura Butler, on 17 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2018

Greyfriars is a beautiful venue and we had an unforgettable day, however, we were let down by a lack of organisation & poor service by both venue & caterer. Despite agreeing timings weeks before & on the morning of the wedding, the day ran over by 1.5 hours which meant evening guests had to wait outside whilst we finished dinner! It also meant significant additional costs were incurred in regards to our photographer/videographer. Both caterers & venue refused to accept any responsibility for the delays or cover any out-of-pocket costs, instead blaming it on the hot weather! As mentioned though, we re-confirmed timings on the morning of the wedding, so the heat should not have been an issue. In addition, England were playing in the World Cup during the afternoon & we weren’t impressed to hear staff in the kitchen watching the game whilst they were supposed to be serving our canapes & preparing dinner – which was then coincidently served much later than planned. Proof of this was put on social media by the caterers themselves. In addition to the above: Venue · Libby, the owner, was our master of ceremonies, but she made little effort to speed proceedings up when we were clearly behind schedule – we had to introduce our own speeches! · There are only two toilets for 100+ people so we hired portaloos, which was lucky because the house is run on a well & the running water ran out! Caterers We would not recommend our caterer, Sally Iddles Fabulous Foods: · Whilst the food was delicious at the tasting, the meal on the day was not; it was badly overcooked. · Serving timings were very slow. · Our guests were told the table wine had run out, only to find 2 cases leftover.

BEST night!

I was going to email you today to say a massive thank you!! Saturday was amazing, James and I loved it and have just about recovered! All the staff were brilliant, super helpful and worked so hard. Everything went perfectly!! All my friends loved the venue and had the BEST night!! I want to do it all again. Yes of course you can use the images and yes I’ll write a review on your social media. I’ll check with the caterers if its theres and let you know. Thank you again for everything!

Truly Wonderful
Venue Service

By Mick and Kay, on 03 May 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Apr 2018

I have been remiss in not acknowledging the wonderful Sunday we had at Greyfriars celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. The professional and thoughtful effort and organisation that both of you, especially Julie and her team put into making it such a resounding success was greatly appreciated by ourselves, our family and all our friends. We received many very favourable comments about how smoothly the day ran and, even with the weather conspiring to keep everyone from enjoying the lovely garden and surroundings, that the convivial and personal atmosphere that you created for our celebration was truly wonderful. Again, our many thanks and we would certainly choose Greyfriars for any similar future event.

Huge Thanks

Outstanding Venue and Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Mark & Fiona, on 04 Dec 2009

Greyfriars House and the owners, Barrie and Libby delivered in every aspect for our wedding day. Nothing was too much bother and everything was doable - even the fireworks display! We were able to tailor every aspect of the day with no restrictions - exactly what we wanted. The day was perfect with everything running to plan. Libby and her staff ensured the Bride, Groom and guests had everything they wanted. Sally Iddles supplied the catering and delivered a first rate culinary experience for the wedding breakfast. Thoroughly recommend both the venue and the catering for anyone looking for that special something for their special day. An experience Fiona and I will never forget.

Amazing, Intimate, Sumptuous, Great Location
Venue Service

By Jenny Whiting, on 01 Dec 2009

We just attended a wedding at Greyfriars - a huge WELL DONE for delivering such a perfect wedding for Mark and Fi. Having been to many many weddings in my time, I can honestly say this was the most well thought out, the most friendly staff, the attention to detail was amazing including your well timed champagne top ups during the speeches, the venue really comes alive at a function like that and the food was not short of AMAZING. All the guests we spoke to had a blast! We were all wowing every time the next course came out at the dinner, the quality of the food and the presentation was wonderful and the chef and the waiting staff were a credit to the venue. Big Big thanks for making it a special day not only for the bride and groom, but for the guests too - I''ll have absolutely no hesitation in continuing to suggest your venue to my bridal clients - especially now I''ve experienced it first hand. > > Congratulations on such a slick operation and on your efforts. > > Jenny & Paul.
