We just wanted to send you a quick message to say the biggest of thank yous for all of your hard work not only on our wedding day on Sunday, but throughout the whole of the planning process. You have been an absolute superstar! You have made everything so easy for us. We haven't been stressed at all, even on the day, and that's all down to your reassurance and professionalism. We had the most wonderful day, where we were able to totally relax and enjoy the magical moments. Warren and the whole front of house staff were absolutely amazing, please pass on our sincere thanks. We had a lot of comments from people about how smoothly everything ran - you were one step ahead of us all day, keeping us on track and keeping our guests happy. Amazing!

I just want to say a giant thank you for Saturday. The team were absolutely exceptional and we genuinely had the best day of our lives. We are both sticklers for organisation and I thought there was no way I'd be able to spend the day not worrying about what was happening or feeling like I had to organise things myself - particularly when so much of my job involves this. But I was able to completely switch off and at no point did I feel I couldn't totally relax and feel like I was in the very safest of hands. The guests said it was the best wedding they've ever been to, and you and your team have so much responsibility for that incredible compliment. The smooth running, organisation, placement of decorations, co-ordination, attentiveness of staff and fantastic upkeep of the beautiful venue were second to none. I feel so incredibly lucky that we were able to marry at the Old Down in the capable hands of you and your colleagues.

We have just attended the Paul and Susie wedding and I felt compelled to contact you and say what an amazing venue you have and how completely fantastic everything you did was. The attention to detail and the customer service was exemplary. Every need was catered for and nothing was too much trouble. In particular when my son was unfortunately ill within an hour of the bride arriving …nothing was an issue and I wasn’t made to feel awkward at all. I sincerely apologise for your housekeeping having to clean up after him. The manor is out of this world location and view wise and your staff were amazing. I can’t complement you all enough.

Now I am back from holiday I just wanted to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for everything you and your team did to make their wedding day so perfect. One thing that I would particularly like to call out is how wonderful you and your team were - especially would like to thank Jason and all of the waiting team and the barmen. They were all amazing, nothing was too much trouble, never have we experienced such wonderful, professional, friendly service like this at a function. YOU ALL MAKE SUCH AN AMAZING TEAM together. - it was a wonderful, wonderful couple of days - and worth every single penny ! THANK YOU SO MUCH

To Lucy, Jason, Chris, David, Louise, Molly and the whole team. WOW! I'm actually lost for words. Our wedding was so perfect from start to finish! As you know, Old Down means so much to me, so holding my wedding reception with you was a dream come true. From the planning to the day itself - so professional and our needs met at all stages. The Manor and grounds lend themselves perfectly to weddings. The space feels like home and with exclusive use you are not interrupted. You feel so relaxed and welcomed as soon as you arrive. I cannot fault anything about our day. A huge part of this was our venue and the team that served us. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was sensational with many guests commenting on the quality, taste and presentation. You were able to adapt a menu to suit our requirements which was great. The serving staff were helpful and efficient. The house was absolutely spotless Louise, from top to bottom and the grounds manicured to perfection. You even ordered us the sunshine! First class service at a first class venue. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.
