Our dream venue, food, team, and day!


The Buttery and Glasshouse is stunning, and I honestly can't imagine us having got married anywhere else now! We didn't see another venue that was anything like as special as this - the spaces, surroundings, and design are all gorgeous and provide a really flexible setting for whatever kind of wedding you're envisaging. You can style it in so many ways, but it's also really beautiful even without tons of added decoration.

The food was out of this world - multiple guests have said it was one of the best meals of their life! We really wanted excellent food without having the wedding anywhere really formal or exclusive, and it honestly couldn’t have been better than it was. We also had a delicious evening buffet and next morning breakfast which was all amazing too.

We were just blown away by how wonderful our wedding day was, and so much of that was down to the incredible team at The Buttery and Glasshouse. We worked with Leigh Anne when we first booked our wedding there at the start of this year, and subsequently with Catherine as our wedding coordinator. A month after the big day, we’re missing being in touch with them, as they’d become like friends to us. They couldn’t have done more - they are warm and personable, communicative, and super organised. We had total confidence in their ability to deliver everything we discussed, and also loved that they were so receptive to ideas rather than sticking to a package of limited options. Our day felt so personal and full of joy, largely thanks to the talented people we worked with who made it possible for us to bring our vision to life.

Beyond the coordinators, we found all the staff (Dionne, Emma, everyone!) we interacted with totally competent and so lovely - and it all added to the ease and atmosphere of a beautiful day. We will be grateful to the whole team at The Bull always for the most perfect day that we can't stop talking about!

Excellent venue and amazing service

What an amazing wedding we had on 4th October 2023.
From the first time we dropped in for a drink to take a look at The Bull Hotel, to our initial meeting, to the wonderful wedding open day visit with family, to our actual wedding, the staff and service has been fantastic.
We didn’t want a DJ or sit down 3 course meal including wine. Nothing was too much trouble. We used their wedding packages as a guide, discussed everything at our initial meeting and they gave us a bespoke price for exactly the elements we wanted.
We were blessed with great weather for October. Our civil ceremony was at 4.30pm in the Buttery, with cocktails and canapés on the terrace and a delicious smokehouse buffet in the glasshouse, followed by cakes and a sweetie table.
For entertainment we decided to have a caricaturist The Artful Doodler and magic and mind reading by Robert Fox.
Despite being a Wednesday family and friends decided to book all the rooms and we gathered together for a delicious breakfast the next morning.
The Glasshouse and Buttery is a fabulous all year round wedding venue that is light and airy and gets a 10 out of 10 for service, location, comfort and the best cosmopolitan cocktails 🍸

Perfect venue with a amazing wedding coordinator

This venue is so perfect everything you need in one place, the buttery is a beautiful little building with beams and stone walls, there’s a large terrace area for the drink’s reception and gives everyone chance to stretch their legs before the wedding breakfast, ours was served in the stunning glass house which is so open and inviting it’s simply beautiful.
The food we choose was Texan smokehouse as we didn’t want the fuss of asking guests what they wanted to eat on a traditional type menu, everyone enjoyed the food and commented on how lovely it was and how we had found the perfect venue. The hotel rooms are all very welcoming and modern.
The staff can’t help enough and the wedding planner was on hand all day making every step go by without a glitch even though our guests were somewhat confused about wedding etiquette and order they still got everything to run smoothly, they came over to check how everything was going and if I needed anything, helped me with my dress, just went above and beyond for us.

The Perfect Day at the Bull

We got married at the Bull Hotel at the end of April and we cannot recommend it as a venue more highly. The venue is perfect if you are looking for somewhere where everything is in one location. The Buttery has a lovely rustic quality for the ceremony while the Glasshouse is light, airy and modern and perfect for the wedding breakfast. Having the pub as well is such an asset as it gives people multiple options in the evening- especially for those who want a sit down and a quieter chat.
The food was exceptional - everything was absolutely delicious. But what makes the Bull such a very special venue that will always remain dear to our hearts is the team. Leigh Anne is quite simply a joy to have as your wedding coordinator. She is one of the loveliest people I have ever met and she and the team will do everything in their power to help create the day you want. We cannot fault our experience with the Bull and we wish them every success for the future as they thoroughly deserve every accolade and award they win!

A dream from beginning to end!

We got married at The Bull in late October, and would wholeheartedly recommend it as a wedding venue. From the initial enquiry in December 2020, up to the day itself, Leigh Anne was on hand for any and all questions we sent her way! We had the perfect amount of communication and check ins along the planning process. The service we received from Leigh Anne, Dionne (who co-ordinated the day like a dream), Stacy, and the rest of the staff on our wedding day went absolutely above and beyond our expectations, and we are so grateful for all the help and support they offered us throughout. We were able to use The Buttery and The Glasshouse as blank slates to decorate to our heart’s content for our Autumnal theme, and the venue lent itself so well to our cosy and intimate celebrations. The food was incredible, so all our guests were very impressed and well fed!

Thank you – we had the most wonderful and totally relaxed wedding day, with so many fond memories to treasure thanks to your amazing work.

Perfect day

We had our wedding here in October and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to have it. Leigh Anne and Dionne made sure everything was perfect from start to finish. The location is just amazing and is so beautiful in our photos. The food was, in the words of our guests, “the best food they have ever had at a wedding”. Nothing was too much for any of the staff they saw to our every need. We stayed the night before with our family and had a lovely meal as a start to the celebrations.
The rooms are spacious impeccably clean and very comfortable.
My grandmother is in a wheelchair and they made sure throughout the day that she was able to take part in everything and were there with the ramps whenever needed.
I would 110% recommend this as the perfect location for a beautiful and memorable wedding. They also do a mean Sunday roast as well.
Thank you Dionne, Leigh Anne, Sacha and Martin and all the rest of the staff who made our special day just perfect in every way.

From start to finish every part of our special day was made perfect by Emma, Leigh-Anne, Sangita and the whole team at The Bull. The outstanding service, amazing food and beautiful location really did give us memories to treasure forever! The accommodation was wonderful and a tasty breakfast too!

‘WATTS’ a Wonderful Wedding Venue!

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of getting married at The Bull in July 2021. We cannot thank The Bull staff enough for their attention to detail and unparalleled level of service throughout the weekend. We’d like to extend a special thank you to Emma, Harry, George, Em, Leigh Anne and the whole team who continually exceeded not just ours but our whole wedding party’s needs.

Prior to booking our wedding, we knew of The Bulls excellent food menu, however, what was provided on the day well and truly surpassed our expectations, catering exceptionally for both Vegan and Meat options.

The hotel rooms were perfect for our preparations and guests all enjoyed the convenience of staying on site. The ceremony and reception venue allow for a truly intimate wedding experience - Everything was seamless from start to finish.

We honestly couldn’t have wished for anything more, and would recommend The Bull to anyone booking their special day.

Thank you again, to all The Bull Team!

All our best,

Mr & Mrs Watts

Beautiful venue for intimate, low-key weddings!

We got married at The Bull on 19th June this year and had the most amazing day! Despite social distancing restrictions, the team managed to make our day feel intimate and romantic, and went above and beyond for us and our guests.

We were blown away by the whole day - especially by the food which was incredible!! We also got to have most of our family and friends stay over in the hotel rooms and join us for breakfast the next morning.

I would highly recommend The Bull for any couples looking for a small, low-key, fun wedding - we absolutely loved ours.

A massive thank you to Emma, Leigh-Anne and Sangita and everyone else at The Bull!

Wonderful wedding venue

We always wanted a smaller wedding, which is what attracted us to The Bull. We fell in love with the venue as soon as we visited. Our wedding ended up being half the size we originally planned, due to Covid, but it was still amazing. The Buttery is beautiful, and you really can customise it to fit your theme. The indoor and outdoor space is great. The team there are amazing, very responsive to queries and they were really supportive (when lockdown after lockdown left us wondering whether it’d ever happen). The food is amazing. We went for the smokehouse option as we had a fairly informal wedding, and we had so many compliments about the food!

Absolutely Perfect!

We cannot overstate how wonderful our special day at The Bull Hotel was! It is a fabulous venue with a great team of people. We knew we'd found the right venue as soon as we went to their wedding fair in February 2019 as it had such a great feeling about it, so we booked it for our wedding whilst we were there for 16 November 2019. The Wedding Coordinator, Leigh Anne, is absolutely wonderful! She was there to help us with the planning at every stage from day 1 and kept everything on track and running smoothly. Their approved partners, Locate to Create & Esta's Chair Covers, were also a great help in preparing the setting for our wedding. The food tasting evening was a great experience and gave us the chance to sample their delicious food before we made our choice for the Wedding Breakfast. Our wedding date arrived soon enough and it was just the most perfect day. From start to finish it ran like clockwork. We had 50 day guests and a further 50 evening guests, and everyone said how fabulous it was! The Buttery is such a beautiful and adaptable space for weddings, and it was turned around several times during the day for the Ceremony, the Wedding Breakfast and then the Evening Celebrations, during which times we all retired to the main bar . We had a Harpist during the Ceremony, our own choice of instrumental music during the Wedding Breakfast and a live band for the Evening Celebrations. The food and wine at the Wedding Breakfast was superb, and was served perfectly. The bar staff and waiting staff were excellent all day and were smart, polite, professional and friendly. All of the rooms at The Bull were booked out for us and our guests, and our stays in the beautiful rooms were lovely. We couldn't have asked for anything better for our wedding day, and our wonderful memories will stay with us always. Our guests still tell us how fabulous the day was and how much they enjoyed themselves. We still look back and talk about how perfect the whole day was even as we approach our first anniversary. We would not hesitate to recommend The Bull Hotel as the perfect wedding venue!

Louise & Kevin.

Wow what can we say!

From the very moment we stepped into the bull hotel we just knew this was the venue for us, the most incredible members of staff who honestly cannot do enough for you. We had great communication throughout from our first visit with Leigh Anne to our final meeting with Emma. The ladies at the Glasshouse are fantastic. Emma throughout the day was amazing and all the staff wemt above and beyond on one of the hottest days of the year. They made our day as stress free as possible and without Emma Leigh-Anne and Charlotte we don't know how we would of done it. They are incredible and deserve so much recognition. The hours they put in for making your day goes as smoothly as possible. You made our day so special and we honestly cannot thank you enough. The food was incredible on the day and also the breakfast the next day. Our guest where over the moon with everything just like us! We cannot wait to go back for a meal in a few weeks and relive our special day through memories again.
