So so special
Venue Service

By Leona and Michael, on 26 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 27 May 2018

We can't thank you enough for making our wedding day on Sunday so so special. The whole day ran so smoothly and looked absolutely beautiful. We have had various comments from friends about how well it all run and a lot of comments about the Amazing food! Thank you to Juliet for being so amazing during our wedding breakfast. She spent the whole time going round to various tables making sure all was okay and everyone was enjoying themselves. Everyone loved the food so thank you so much. Elliot was great the whole evening too. Again he ensured it all run smoothly and was always on hand if we needed anything.

Good venue and OK accomodation
Venue Service

By Varun and Ann, on 02 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Mar 2018

The majority of the staff are excellent. The planning and organisation was remotely hassle free, MB have preferred suppliers. 1. Accommodation: There is no food options at the venue, but you can try a local pub. The rooms were clean and well made up and the staff member looking after us was brilliant. In hindsight they not good value. The breakfast consisted of stale croissants, not enough cups/milk + mini cereal. This is what a basic continental breakfast consists of but for rooms starting at £100 a night we should have stayed at the travel lodge, saved about £600 and had a better breakfast. 2. Morning of the wedding: other couples being shown around. Unattended at times, in the accommodation. 1 person pushed the partition to enter the bridal changing room where my wife was getting ready saying “oh we are just looking around”. They even went into the main room. 3. Honeymoon cottage: as point 1, not good value, wedding finishes at 12, you take all of your possessions to the cottage and have to be checked out at 10am, you will probably spend the whole time asleep after your wedding day. £240 with the same breakfast (point 2) overpriced. 4. Morning after: again all of our items and possessions are packed back into a car and then dropped off at the venue. Been easier to leave things in the venue instead of ferrying to and from. Evening room has been cleared and anything you bought in is dropped/thrown in an outdoor room. Photoboards were bent, items missing. Katherine dropped us off assured us everything was there then disappeared. Bouquet was missing after many email exchanges was posted back to us. Obligations were complete from MB so we had to be gone is the vibe we got.

Highly recommend them
Venue Service

By Sian and Sam, on 26 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Dec 2017

Sian and I would like to pass a sincere thank you to all of your staff for the work they did on the 28th. We were really impressed with the level of attentiveness and care you all put into the day, it did not go unnoticed and we really were not expecting it. You are really good at what you do and we would be really happy to put a testimonial on any promotional stuff you have. On the day Mercedes, Alex and Elliot and all the others at the bar were fantastic. The venue itself was also fantastic, it worked really well and lots of guests commented on how well it worked as a venue. Many many thanks. We also want to tell you how much we thought of the catering and their staff. The food was great, with lots of people commenting on the quality of it, the timeliness of the service and the attentiveness of the staff. One of our guests who is a Celiac said she had never been treated so well at a wedding when it came to food. They were also really attentive to us when we were in the middle of the madness. Highly recommend them. We should also thank you for packing everything down at the end of the night and storing it for us the next day. That was much appreciated.

Such a special day

Such a beautiful day
Venue Service

By Kelly and Jeremy, on 26 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 09 Dec 2017

We wanted to say a huge thank you for such a beautiful day on Saturday! We couldn't have asked for more from the venue and everyone involved. Carol and Alex did a wonderful job of organising everything with us before the day so thank you. Mercedes was brilliant at the start, kept Jeremy at ease and made sure we all got down the aisle beautifully! Elliot was fantastic, so attentive, friendly, helpful and basically just wonderful at his job! We can't sing his praises enough so thank you so much! Juliet, the food was incredible and you were just so lovely all day! Kept me at ease and looked after all those who needed that little extra care. Thank you for making our day so special. All the bar and catering staff were amazing too! All our guests were raving about the day and we couldn't have done it without you all!!
