    July wedding 2022

    Everything was perfect before the day, great communication with the wedding co-ordinator which put our minds at rest.

    A major issue was the prepaid drinks, 35 plus aperol spritz were arranged, but sadly, they were left out in the sun, and were warm and flat, for £7 a drink we expected a hell of alot more. Guests were actually ordering there own fresh aperol from the bar!! Not great!

    Food was amazing!! Venue is beautiful! But the support from the planner fizzled out on the day which was a shame, as we were under the impression she'd play an important part of the day as there was so much support before the wedding.

    Bridal suite is beautiful, with amazing views of the wedding area, but you should request that the table and chairs from the outdoor bar are placed in the wedding area.... ours were not, and the guests felt very separated as it was warm and Guests needed the shade.

    Beautiful venue for our wedding

    The Bush Hotel was fantastic. The whole team was excellent from start to finish. From Hannah and Kash who helped with our preparation to Francesco who ran the show on the day, plus the excellent service staff. It was very nice to meet them as we enjoyed being around them. They are friendly and polite, and truly made a very good impression on both of us.

    Our wedding meal was amazing, our guests were saying the three-course meal was delicious and all our guests had plenty on their plates to eat. We were happy to hear that our guests were full and enjoyed every course.

    We were looked after very nicely and they made us feel welcome, cared for, and comfortable.

    We made beautiful memories and would love to come back for a special meal in the future.

    Our wedding suite was truly beautiful, high quality, and nicely decorated. It is a dream room to stay in. The hotel is stunning, it has character, and it is designed to amaze anybody who walks in.

    A great venue in the heart of Farnham.

    Wedding Reception

    We recently held our wedding reception here and had a fantastic day. The package was really good value for money. We wanted a hotel with original character and a genuine history. This hotel did not disappoint. An army of dedicated staff had prepared the main room for our feast, the food was delicious and upon arrival we gathered in the quirky oak room with roaring log fires to gather around. We had beautiful candelabras flickering away to complement the chandeliers, and a disco to dance into the wee hours. The buffet was superb and when a plate was emptied by the guests, it was quickly refilled. The bar stayed open as long as we the guests were willing to party, and being mainly Irish this was late into the evening. This hotel was a great choice for our reception.

    Everything that we had hoped for

    We held our Civil Partnership at The Bush last week, using the Oak Lounge for the ceremony, and the Thackeray Restaurant for the meal for our 32 guests.
    Throughout, staff there referred to our "Wedding", which delighted us! Every detail of the day was just as we had hoped that it would be. Staff there were efficient and friendly, and we cannot recommend the venue too highly.

    What a great day

    We’ve just had our Wedding at the Farnham Bush Hotel and had an excellent time. The food and service was superb, the staff there did an excellent job. The wedding co-ordinator, Hollie was very friendly and endeavoured to meet all of our requirements. Everything ran like clockwork on the day which meant everyone there had a very relaxing day.

    The Oak Lounge where we had the ceremony was just the right size and full of character. Having the ceremony, Wedding Breakfast and hotel rooms all in one venue made life so much easier.

    The chef’s were flexible with our choice of dishes for the Wedding Breakfast and the staff were very efficient in carrying out all of our requests throughout the day. We’re very glad we had our special day in Farnham, though the gorgeous weather that day certainly helped!
