    A day we will never forget

    Howsham Hall was the venue we chose for our wedding in July. From our initial viewing we were so impressed, not only by how magnificent the Hall was, but also by the professionalism of everyone we met from Dine. As well as ensuring everything on our wedding day ran seamlessly, the catering and hospitality the Dine team offered was second to none. We and our guests has the most amazing day, one we we never forget!

    Howsham Hall's reply:

    Fantastic wedding venue

    Howsham Hall was a brilliant venue for our wedding. We arrived in the morning and felt like guests ourselves, relaxed in the knowledge that Craig, Tim and their team had absolutely everything under control. The drinks were great, accommodating for our preference of ale over lager! Food service brilliant, all dietary requirements accounted for efficiently and guests commented on how good the food was. We partied until late and really enjoyed having the venue to ourselves with 12 bedrooms!

    Howsham Hall's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, the Craig, Tim & the team work so hard to make your dreams come true it's always lovely to see.

    I'm pleased you've had a great wedding with us and the whole team at Dine wish you both all the best for the future.

    Best wishes,
    Rebecca

    The best day of our lives

    Craig, Tim and the team were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. Our whole wedding weekend was seamless, so well organised and everything ran like clockwork. The service from the team is like nothing I have experienced. I cannot recommend this team enough.

    Couldn’t ask for a better day

    Craig, Natalie and the team are amazing. Nothing is too much hassle and they will guarantee you have a seamless and special day. We were concerned with covid issues, guests unable to attend and rearranging our date several times but Dine ensured we had the day we deserve and we loved every minute of it.
    We would 100% recommend Howsham Hall to all newly engaged couples looking for a venue. Our guests were stunned by the venue and wowed by the quality of the food!

    The best day of our lives

    Howsham Hall is a stately and exquisite rural setting with its formal gardens, lawns, river terrace, beautifully proportioned public rooms, in a court yard evening area.

    The guest rooms are lavish, quirky, imaginative and unique.

    The staff are friendly, helpful, thoughtful, professional and generous.

    The food is exquisite drawing the cuisines of a range of countries and cultures. Our own meal was a combination of vegetarian and vegan dishes all of which was met with the highest of compliments. The staff accommodated afternoon entertainment on the lawns with canapés and drinks, a formal dinner for over 80 and an evening event with DJ and live band as well as delicious food boxes for the evening guests without batting an eye lid.

    Howsham Hall and the Dine team provided us with everything we needed in terms of support, advice, care and service. We really can’t recommend them highly enough

    The Most Fabulous Day

    We just wanted to thank you sincerely for yours and all of your staff's hard work at the weekend. We truly had the most fabulous day, we couldn’t have wished for it to have gone better.

    Everybody loved the venue of course and the food was superb, but it was your exceptional level of service and attention to detail that really caught the eye. From the teams service on Friday evening to dinner on Saturday....they were excellent. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Personally, we really appreciated your little touches from the photocard and cheeseboard to my sisters extra portion of chips !

    Thank you again and of course we wouldn’t hesitate to write a recommendation or review.
