Stunning Wedding!
Venue Service

By Andrew and Suzanna, on 01 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Dec 2017

The events team at the Castle are fantastic. Louise looked after us for our Wedding in between Christmas and New Year 2017. The venue is spectacular, the events team are there to answer any queries and their enthusiasm is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. The preparations were made hassle free and on the day, we could not have wished for more! We chose one of the packages which are fantastic value and got ,arrived in the stunning Wisteria room. Afterwards we headed into the lobby for bubbles and nibbles which allowed our gusts to mingle and take photographs. We had our wedding breakfast in the Garden Room. The food was top notch, the service was nothing short of fantastic and we had the most fantastic day. We would not have changed a thing!! I cannot rate the team at the Castle highly enough!

Fabulous Day
Venue Service

By Bernie & Mick Lyons, on 19 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Jun 2017

As an older couple (Not quite silver surfers) we wanted a small intimate wedding with close family so the Penthouse Suite for our Party of 15 was perfect. We booked about 7 /8 months in advance and no matter how many times I contacted the Events Team (Tess and Louise) with questions they could not have been more patient or helpful. As the room was not in use the day before we were able to go in and decorate the room (just a few bits and pieces) and do the table flowers decorations. After the ceremony Tess was there to welcome us with a big hug and the room looked beautiful. We opted for the Gold Menu with a Glass of Pimms or Orange Juice on arrival and some gorgeous canapes. Our meal was Lyme Bay Crab/Salmon starter with a tomato salad followed by breast of chicken with a light mushroom sauce, new potatoes and summer cabbage ending with a delish chocolate mousse with a raspberry ice cream. To end the meal we had petits fours and tea/coffee. The waiting staff were superb, inobtrusive but helpful and efficient again they helped make our Day. Thank you Tess and the Team for making our day so special !!
