    Amazing venue for a perfect day

    As soon as we viewed the King's Head we both knew it would be the most perfect place for us to get married and it didn't disappoint. We always wanted our ceremony to be intimate with 30 people which was a perfect start to the day. Whilst we were very lucky for hot September weather, the reception drinks in the terraced garden served as a perfect opportunity for our group photos.
    Our wedding breakfast was hosted in the panel room which is stunning and fitted so well for our theme. The food was ridiculously delicious with all guests raving about it days after!
    For us, the evening do was our main focus which we had down in the vaulted cellar, a private bar, raised stage for the band and plenty of room for dancing made it the best way to celebrate our wedding. And of course staying on site in their gorgeous rooms on offer was just the cherry on top.
    As our wedding coordinator, Elise was always available to answer our questions and ensuring on the day that everything went smooth and we can't thank her and the team enough for all their hard work.

    Outstanding

    We booked Kings Head Hotel for our wedding on July the 18th (2020). In the midst of the Covid issue we decided to go ahead with our day, despite reduced numbers. The service that the whole hotel gave us was nothing less than overwhelming; they pulled out all the stops to ensure our day was as special as we had hoped. Covid or no Covid, we wouldn’t have changed a thing, and I would warmly recommend them to anyone thinking of choosing Kings Head Hotel as their wedding venue. Awesome work Elise and team!

    Kings Head Hotel's reply:

    Thank you both so much for such a wonderful review. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to have your wedding go ahead, even if you did have to change your plans so dramatically. It was a beautiful wedding, despite Covid-19 trying to ruin it, and we hope to see you all back to the hotel for a larger celebration once Government guidelines allow.
    You both proved that love always wins and your wedding photos reflect that perfectly!

    Perfect Wedding Day!

    We visited KH in February this year to look into booking for our wedding & fell in love with the place. We booked for the 5th September and then the world as we know it changed! We loved the Kings Head as we wanted an intimate ceremony and they had the space to do this for us. However with all the restrictions, this seemed the last thing we could have. Then Elise and her team made it happen.
    Elise was amazing, as soon as she was back from lockdown she was in touch and kept us up to date with everything. We decided to go ahead and Elise talked us through the options and how we could make it work for us.
    When everything seemed to be against the wedding happening, Elise was a positive voice and very upbeat and enthusiastic about making our day happen.
    I cannot thank her enough, our wedding was just beautiful. We had the ceremony in the vaulted cellar, which was so much bigger than we wanted but they made it work for us...it was intimate and just magical.
    The wine cellar where we had our wedding breakfast was just stunning, the food was fantastic and Azue was very attentive to all our guests.
    I was never without a drink in my hand and all the wedding party were made to feel so special and looked after. He did a fabulous job.
    I cannot recommend the Kings Head enough, the staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. In the few times I popped in, there was always a smile and an offer to show me a room or let me put some flowers in there to see what they looked like!
    A beautiful hotel, stunning location, amazing food and top level staff.
    Thank you Elise & the team for making my dream day come true.

    Kings Head Hotel's reply:

    Marie & Paul,
    Thank you so, so, much for your glowing review. We were delighted to be able to help with your wedding and glad we could have you say 'I Do' at The King's Head Hotel.
    Covid-19 didn't quite manage to ruin your wedding day and we love that you wanted to go ahead even with the restrictive guidelines in place.
    It was such a beautiful day and one we will all remember for a long time to come.
    We can't wait to see you both back at the hotel again.
    Best wishes,
    Elise & the team at The King's Head Hotel

    A* Service

    The Kings Head Hotel, what a little gem in the heart of Cirencester is it.

    As a COVID 2020 bride I can not recommend them enough.

    My husband and I had our wedding here on the 21st December 2020, and despite the last minute postponement due to lock down 2 and the many changes to government restrictions The Kings Head Hotel was incredible throughout.

    We have never had such personal A* service where nothing was ever too much. From the lovely ladies on reception to the manager and all the hotel staff.

    A special thank you to Elise.
    Her love and passion for making every brides dream wedding come true really shone through and brought the day together.
    I honestly wouldn’t of been able to of done it without her!
    Down to the little thoughtful touches in the bridal suite from her that she left for me on my arrival, to taking care of every detail of the wedding on the day so I wouldn’t have to worry and can just enjoy becoming a Mrs!
    She was fantastic and is a true asset to The Kings Head Hotel.

    Our personalised menu for our wedding breakfast was delicious, hats off to the chef!

    Thank you Elise and the team at The Kings Head Hotel for giving my husband and I the most magical day we could of dreamed of, we can not wait to come back later this year for our 1st year wedding anniversary.

    See you soon!

    The newly weds Mr and Mrs Leighfield

    Kings Head Hotel's reply:

    Mr & Mrs Leighfield, thank you ever so much for your review, sharing your feedback and some of your gorgeous wedding images with us.
    It really was an absolute pleasure to work with you on your special day and we are all delighted that we could make it happen.
    Your positivity throughout the entirety of 2020 was inspirational. Your wedding plans changed 3 times in the space of just a few months but this didn't stop you from saying I Do (even if it couldn't happen on your original date).
    We cannot wait to welcome you both back to the Kings Head Hotel to celebrate your 1 year anniversary.
    Best wishes,
    Elise & the team at the Kings Head Hotel

    Wonderful!

    We started planning our wedding just as restrictions began lifting in early 2021.
    When we came across the Kings Head Hotel, we both fell in love. Right in the centre of Cirencester, loads of character, gorgeous rooms, styled and decorated beautifully - we couldn’t believe our luck.
    Getting in touch with the hotel and Elise, the wedding coordinator was super easy and we weren’t left waiting long for a response. Elise was absolutely fantastic from start to finish, no request was too big, she answered all my silly questions, kept in touch with us frequently and helped us find some fantastic local vendors. We had quite a specific idea of how we wanted our day to go - we didn’t want a traditional reception with a wedding breakfast, no decorations.. Elise and the team catered for all our needs with no issue and everything flowed perfectly on the day. Our guest list size changed a couple of times throughout, and sadly again the day before the wedding, but this was never an issue and Elise and the team were always accommodating. We were also a party made up of mostly vegans - and whilst there were a few veggie options available, the team created a full vegan menu for us and our guests on the day - the food was absolutely incredible! Everything about our day was perfect, we’re so grateful for Elise and the KHH team for everything and we’re hoping to come back and celebrate soon with a party for our friends and family who weren’t with us on the day.

    Perfect Venue

    Most importantly the KHH is a beautiful venue. Both the Assembly Room and Vaulted Cellar were fantastic. All of our guests were amazed by it.

    The KHH were very accommodating and flexible with postponement due to COVID. There was no hidden fees which is always a bonus when planning and budgeting a wedding.

    Cant wait to go back for our anniversary.

    The Perfect Day!!

    The Kings Head Hotel and our wedding planner Elise were first class from start to finish. The organisation of the day in the months before was made easy by the efficiency and professionalism of all involved, and the day itself was faultless! We would highly recommend the KHH, and want to thank all who played a part in our special day!

    Kings Head Hotel's reply:

    Your kind words mean the world to us! Thank you so so much.
    We loved helping you plan your wedding and being a part of it on the day itself. Your wedding day was truly beautiful and your vision worked so perfectly with the spaces we have here at the Kings Head Hotel.
    We cannot wait to see the photos, and to welcome you both back (& Pablo)!

    Beautiful, character hotel venue with excellent food

    The Kings Head is a beautiful, character-filled wedding venue with lots of ceremony and evening rooms to choose from. We picked it because we had stayed in the hotel before and it had special memories for us, but also because of the amazing quality food and the beautiful rooms allowing our guest to stay on site. It was also reasonably priced for the size of wedding we had. The team were brilliant running through everything with us the day before and helping make last minute tweaks and ensured everything ran smoothly on the day.

    Kings Head Hotel's reply:

    Thank you ever so much for your review Robyn and for your kind words, we really appreciate this. Your wedding day was so beautiful and we can't wait to see you & Rob back at the hotel for your anniversary stay (if not before)!
