Such an enjoyable and memorable occasion for us!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs King, on 29 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Nov 2018

Thank you and all of the members of the catering and events team at the Compleat Angler for helping to make our wedding on Saturday such an enjoyable and memorable occasion for us, and for all our guests. In particular, could you please thank Brahim for his calmness, efficiency and coordination; managing to keep things turning round even when the reception overran. Phyllis noticed on a video that he even sorted out her train as she walked down the aisle, he was a real star.

It really could not have gone any better!
Venue Service

By Sam, on 01 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2018

I felt very reassured as soon as I spoke to Cristina the first time. Also, Brahim was just the best, kept everything on track and everyone calm. He really is a superstar; the hotel are lucky to have him. In fact all of the staff at the hotel were so helpful, my family have all commented on how nice the staff were. Housekeeping were good too and promptly cleaned the bridal suite and tidied it up for me which was really helpful. Our wedding really couldn’t have gone any better, to say it exceeded my expectations would be an understatement. I’m so pleased we chose the Compleat Angler.

Summer Wedding

My wedding was fantastic. So much space to move around. Such lovely, helpful staff. The wedding breakfast is lovely and the staff kept the room tidy and topped up during it. ? Everything ran so smoothly. Food was amazing and the bbq food was over flowing, bubbly on a boat trip along the thames was also fantastic. They accommodated all my meeds and wants. 100/10 Highly recommended. Thank-you, Every single staff member was fantastic. So very helpful ??. I will be coming back in a few years to re new my wedding vows and do it all over again

By Tiffany & David, on 27 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Apr 2017

Hi Adele, Thank you!!! I couldn't have imagined anything as spectacular as what you and your team produced! Everyone was happy and completely impressed with the service that we all received yesterday! Please send my regards to the chef again, the food was delicious, everyone commented on how good it was. Brahim is a brilliant events manager, he is a complete star! He went out of his way to do everything that I asked, which was way more than I expected. Please thank him again for me! Adele, thank you so very much for taking such good care of everything for me on the day and for the past few months. I really appreciate all of your hard work and patience with us. I know we weren't the most decisive couple and we were super busy. Your professionalism is superb, and you go above and beyond your job (thanks for doing up my bustle). I felt completely confident yesterday that you had everything under control. Thank you for making our day so special! Thank you so much.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The Compleat Angler will always hold a special place in our hearts and in the story of our family. We will be back !

Venue Service

By Charlotte & Colin, on 27 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Dec 2016

Dear Adele, Ibrahim, Gavin and all staff at The Compleat Angler, We're emailing to say thank you for hosting an amazing wedding for us. Apart from our a few dramas (nothing to do with the hotel!) our wedding ran smoothly and we loved every minute of it. Our guests have commented how lovely the food was and we are in complete agreement. We felt as if everything was served to perfection and the timings were accurate. The toast master also helped proceedings and it was great as bride and groom to take a back seat and know that everything was taken care of. Thank you Ibrahim for creatively arranging our decorations and for an excellent looking gift/guest book table you so much for the gorgeous gold seat sashes, they looked lovely. Thank you also for making sure my Uncle was taken care of when he was unwell, whilst ensuring the wedding reception was disrupted as little as possible. Our guests commented on what a gorgeous location it was and loved the hotel rooms that they stayed in. Thank you again so much for all your efforts and making it a truly special day for the two of us, we can not sing your praises high enough!!
