Beautiful veune with wonderful staff!

We cannot rate The Kings Head highly enough! We used the intimate package as COVID restrictions were still in place but looking back I wouldn't have had it any other way. The wine cellar was perfect for our wedding breakfast, such a lovely atmosphere. Having drinks on the terrace after the ceremony was also so wonderful. Not only were the rooms and location great, the whole day was so relaxed and beautiful which I think was down to the excellent staff. Elise was great making sure that everything ran smoothly and ensuring all the finer details were covered off. She really took all the stress away. Azouz and the staff on the day were fab, they really looked after us. We had a few children attending and they couldn't do enough for them. My Gramp is also blind and again nothing was too much trouble to make sure he felt comfortable and he enjoyed his day.
Prior to the wedding we thought we would have a 'good' day but it was honestly the best day and we couldn't have hoped for more! Would highly recommend this as a venue for others!

The care, attention, quality and value are truly unparalleled.

Trying to put into words how great the Kings Head team are is very difficult! The care, attention, quality and value are truly unparalleled. We had a small intimate evening wedding with 16 guests in the Wine Cellar, it was such a romantic and beautiful setting but every other room in this hotel is just as beautiful, if we would've had a larger wedding it would've still been the perfect place for us!
Daisy from the beginning was so amazing, her passion for coordinating your special day really shines. Answering all sorts of questions and whims I had so happily and truly being someone I could rely during this process. On the day Daisy was such a calming and fun person to be around, she made everything go so smoothly and organised, even down to her having every little thing I forgot about!! She made every issue disappear with ease and made it possible for us to not have to worry about anything. We feel like we got off so easily with our wedding, it was the easiest process from first meeting to the day itself, and I truly have Daisy to thank for that! Not to forget the team working so hard serving our families and providing such great service!
The Food. The. Food! As massive foodies, the meal had to be great, trying the taster menu we knew we'd be in good hands on the day! Such delicious food, perfectly cooked and timed meals which can be difficult with 4 different mains in our party due to allergies and preferences! They really blew us away and everyone really enjoyed the meal.
Can't recommend this gorgeous hotel more.

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.

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鈥檛 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鈥檛 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!

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.

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鈥檛 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!

Incredible venue!

We recently had our wedding at the Kings Head Hotel and it was amazing from start to finish. We went to a wedding fair there a few years ago and absolutely fell in love. The venue is beautiful and it鈥檚 great that it has the different areas that you can spend your whole day there. Daisy (the wedding planner) is incredible! The whole process up to the wedding was great, she was great with communication and she was so helpful when I needed it. I couldn鈥檛 thank her and the team enough, our wedding day was beautiful and I would choose the Kings Head Hotel again if I could!

Definitely the best and right decision!

From our initial enquiry, the two years of planning and throughout our wedding day and evening, Daisy could not have been more helpful and joyous to work with! We couldn't have asked for a better wedding co-ordinator or person generally to be in touch with and to handle our wedding!

Being a very indecisive individual, and knowing that a wedding entails lots of decision making and ideas and thoughts to be discussed, Daisy was on hand to calm our nerves and talk through anything we needed or wanted to, whenever we needed to! No question, no change of heart, no concern was too much trouble and she was always happy to help and listen to us. Her detailed responses and time given to us was second to none.

The Guest Relations Manager Joanna and the team at the hotel were also fantastic. Their attentiveness towards us and our guests both prior to and on our wedding day was something to remember; even remembering some of our family guests names and addressing them by their first name at breakfast and on check-out is pretty impressive and something we will not forget.

The hotel itself as a wedding venue is a hidden gem. Having our own private area upstairs in the hotel for our ceremony, drinks/canapes, wedding breakfast, photos and evening reception was a selling point for us as we knew that despite it being a hotel open to the public, only our wedding guests would be around us and able to use the facilities upstairs; toilets, the terrace, bar etc and having that privacy was important for us.

Despite their not being a 'honeymoon suite' as such, the indulgent rooms at the hotel (101 in particular) was a lovely room to be in both the night before and night of our wedding; very spacious, overlooking the high street, extremely comfortable bed and various different seats and a sofa in the room were all nice touches making it feel special.

The perfect wedding venue

The Kings Head Hotel was the perfect venue for our wedding day. Daisy, the Wedding Co-ordinator, was always on hand to answer my (many!) questions from the time we booked to the day of the wedding, and her wedding planner document made everything seem a bit more manageable!

The bridal suite was beautiful, and we were able to set up our DIY wedding decorations in the room the day before the wedding, giving us extra peace of mind and breathing space on the day itself. On the day, Daisy made sure everything happened on time and according to plan and the hotel staff set up all of the table decorations for us, which were done perfectly. All of the hotel staff were brilliant - including reception who helped the groom track down some lost buttonholes!

Dinner was served seamlessly, the food was delicious and when we realised we'd forgotten one of our guests was vegetarian, Daisy sorted another veggie meal for us.

One of the best things about the Kings Head is that there are different rooms you can move between - we went from the Assembly Room to the Cellar in the evening and it provided a welcome change of scenery as we'd had the whole day in the Assembly Room until that point. So many of our guests have said how cool the Cellar was in particular - it was a great spot for the band!

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鈥檛 believe our luck.
Getting in touch with the hotel and Elise, the wedding coordinator was super easy and we weren鈥檛 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鈥檛 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鈥檙e so grateful for Elise and the KHH team for everything and we鈥檙e hoping to come back and celebrate soon with a party for our friends and family who weren鈥檛 with us on the day.

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!

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.

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.
