Such a beautiful wedding venue
Great atmosphere for a small wedding
On the day the function room was decorated beautifully. The guests enjoyed relaxing in the courtyard and we were able to set up some outdoor games for the children. The food service was excellent. I would also recommend as a good venue for guests to stay over, they serve a good quality breakfast.
Overall, a great atmosphere and suited us for a small wedding.
Married on 28th May 2022
Megan was so easy to work with and nothing was too much trouble for her. We were in regular contact in the lead up to our day and she was really helpful in helping us to plan.
The venue itself is brilliant with the courtyard, private patio, main room, function room toilets and bar. Yet it is the hardworking and customer focussed staff that make this wedding venue stand out.
The rooms are excellent - much larger and more reasonable than any of the other venue that we saw which was important as most of our guests were travelling. The bridal suite is spectacular and a great place to get ready especially for a large wedding party as I had five bridesmaids.
The food was delicious and organised in such a way that the wedding breakfast flowed perfectly.
Breakfast is delicious too the morning of and the morning after.
I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone who is thinking of getting married and thank you to everyone for helping in our day.
Lovely wedding venue
The hotel is lovely and well kept. The layout is great for events as the bar, dance floor, toilets and outside space are all together.
The whole day had a relaxed atmosphere and all the staff were so friendly. We had 94 to the day and an extra 60 or so to the evening which were perfect numbers. We paid the DJ extra to stay until 1am and because our guests had booked all 59 rooms we didn’t have to worry about keeping the noise down after 12. Also very handy having a 24 hour bar so we all continued the party once the DJ stopped. You can connect your phone to the sound system too to continue background music.
We used Deans Events to decorate and supply chair covers and sashes etc who were absolutely lovely and efficient! They also went above and beyond with the bonus of offering competitive prices. We also used the recommended DJ included in the package who suggested we send over a list of songs which worked perfectly. The dance floor was full all night.
Megan was really flexible with the package and adapted it to our needs. We were really happy with the final costs and got a lot for our money. The food at dinner and evening buffet were delicious and reception drinks were plentiful.
I can’t recommend this venue highly enough!!
The Perfect Day!
It was excellent value for money and we even had extras added in which was lovely.
The wedding day went smoothly from start to finish, every member of staff involved were lovely and made sure everything went well.
They decorated the tables beautifully and helped us to set up our own decorations too which was much appreciated.
Everyone commented on how nice the the was also. The only downside is the day went far too quickly!
The hotel rooms were lovely, I stayed two nights as some of us wanted to get ready at the hotel on the day of the wedding. Plenty of room for our wedding party to join also!
Cannot recommend this venue enough!
Thank you Megan & team :)
Our wedding 14/08/2021
The perfect venu
The outdoor area was perfect for a drinks reception and our outdoor wedding ceremony. Furthermore, some of our guests stayed in the rooms which were great and extremely clean.
If you are looking in the Oxfordshire area then this is by far the best venue.
The Perfect Day
On the actual day, despite the temperature being 33 degrees, the staff were so helpful and accommodating. They tried their best to cater for everyone's needs and wants and made sure that our wedding went smoothly. The food was excellent and many people commented on the service.
Many of our guests stayed at the hotel and the rooms were very spacious and clean. Although a couple of rooms had faulty air con, guests were moved without too much trouble or stress. The bridal suite was amazing, it was like an apartment with the most incredible shower!
We stumbled across the Thame Lambert by accident but we are so pleased that we did as it was the most perfect venue. We would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for an intimate venue with wonderful staff.
Me and my wife had a church ceremony in Chinnor, All of our guest were greeted with a beautiful drink reception in the gardens. The staff were fantastic and the food was amazing!
Cannot fault anything!
Would recommend to anyone and everyone
The perfect day
Amazing from start to finish.
From my first call to book a room for a different event Megan was “On it”. Every email answered in full and fast! Specifically Megan made everything flow before hand and was there from 7am - finish the day before and day of the wedding!
Aaron on the day & other staff were widely praised for being so attentive and helpful by all our guests.
Food was good quality and good portions. The hotel dose not try to make things “posh” and this is a massive positive. You know what your going to get. The food on the day was just the same as the amazing tasting menu, and the chef even customised bits to our preference.
The venue also worked very well with the layout of having the court yard, private terrace & event room all connected. They were helpful to our suppliers allowing early setup and smoke for photos outside.
Overall we would recommend 100%.
The best wedding reception venue!
