    Better than we could have ever imagined

    We wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your whole team at the Guildhall. Our wedding was better than we could have ever imagined.

    The day went off without a hitch and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

    Stunning Historical City venue

    We had our wedding and reception in the Great Hall. We would thoroughly recommend St Mary's Guildhall for a wedding. The Great Hall is breathtaking and the photos do not do it justice.
    There were no hidden costs and all the information was available online and cost are inclusive of VAT. Inclusive of the cost of reception we were able to use the atmospheric undercroft as a changeover area with its own bar.
    The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout from planning to the day itself. Most correspondence was done via email, which is useful as we live 2 hours drive away.
    They did a wonderful job of setting everything up and packing away for us which made our day very relaxed. They were flexible and able to accommodate our personal touches.
    The catering team were able to accommodate numerous dietary requirements with ease and the service was carried out with first class efficiency.
    We had lots of lovely comments from on guests about the venue itself, food and service.
    We couldn't imagine our day anywhere else

    Fantastic venue, we couldn't fault it. Excellent day!.

    Wedding 25th August 2007

    Excellent venue we couldn't have asked for anything more, nothing was too much trouble. The staff worked so hard and the food was excellent. A number of our guests came from Coventry and didn't know the venue existed - what a great find. Thank you for making our day so special.

    We would definately recommend this venue for weddings and other private functions.

    Romantic setting for a perfect wedding day

    Very friendly and helpful staff, interior of crypt nearest thing to a church for non religious people. A very romantic setting, with cathedral bells ringing in the background.

    Fantastic, couldn't fault it!!

    This has to be the most amazing civil/ reception venue in Coventry. The 14th century building is unique and beautiful. Pefect for photos or you can use the cathedral ruins opposite if you get a permit (£25). The staff were very helpful and laidback about special requests and last minute number changes- candles, confetti all fine, no balloons!! The deposit was only £100, the expected food bill two weeks before and the remainder afterwards.
    The food was great, bar prices normal and overall cost was cheapest quote by a mile. Well placed for family & friends to go to the pub while you get photos done so no boring sitting around which makes weddings tiresome. We booked the main guildhall but also got use of the Crypt too for cake and coffee while they cleared the main room for the evening as they only book one wedding a day.

    Amazing building, friendly staff, wonderful venue

    We had a problem with our first venue so called the Guildhall with 8 weeks to go. The staff were wonderful and accomodating and the room itself (the Drapers Room) created a wonderful atmosphere for ther small number of guests we had.

    The courtyard was fantastic for photographs although being next to the old cathedral we could have had them taken there.

    The stained glass window gave a church-like effect and apparantly the food there is great (we had already booked our reception elsewhere).

    The price was amazing - much cheaper than hotels and I was really really impressed.

    I had a wonderful day with fantastic memories and no one can ask for more of a venue.
