    Our Wedding

    We used the Cock Hotel for our wedding venue from vows to wedding reception and we loved every second of it. The day is held in their dedicated reception room with the end wall being exposed stone and roof beams, there is also a dedicated bar so there is no need for the guests to leave the reception room. Darren and Sara helped up plan the big day from beginning to end and have a few different menu and drinks packages, they also had a trusted list events teams who were also very professional and accommodating with budgets to suit all. We would highly recommend that you use Darren as the Master of the Ceremony as he knows how ton run a tight schedule as timing is very important when you have a fairly large guest list. We would also recommend having pictures taken in front of the old barn too as this looks lovely in photos. All the waiting staff and the rest of the team in the background were also fantastic. All in all, we had a fantastic day and our guests also fed back that they had a great day too. We had a no stress and the only hitch was when we said “I do” We would highly recommend to anyone who in planning a wedding, or indeed an anniversary.

    The Cock Hotel's reply:

    Congratulations to you both to you both!!

    A Fantastic Day!

    Planning a wedding during Lockdown wasn't easy and we changed our guest numbers a couple of times but the team at The Cock Hot were very flexible and made our day very special. Having access to the courtyard was lovely for the guests and photographer to mingle and relax after the emotion of the ceremony. The food was great too!

    The Cock Hotel's reply:

    We are delighted you had a lovely time on your Wedding Day.

    The uncertain government guidelines certainly did keep us on our toes at times! its so satisfying to hear it was a such a special day all round.

    Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness together from all the team at The Cock Hotel

    Blank ATM Card Is Use to collect money in any ATM machine and become rich. What'sApp : +393512615163

    I want to testify about Dark Web blank atm cards which can withdraw money from any atm machines around the world. I was very poor before and have no job. I saw so much testimony about how Dark Web hackers send them the atm blank card and use it to collect money in any atm machine and become rich.
    Email : carolblankatmcard@gmail.com

    Hangout : carolblankatmcard@gmail.com

    What'sApp : +393512615163

    They also sent me the blank atm card. I have used it to get 90,000 dollars. withdraw the maximum of 5,000 USD daily. The Dark Web is giving out cards just to help the poor. Hack and take money directly from any atm machine vault with the use of an atm programmed card which runs in automatic mode.

    Cock Hotel

    Saw this location few years before even being engaged loved it. Its quaint and pretty. Love the old style of Marquee room and the courtyard.

    When we got engaged I knew I needed to enquire. On first chat with Sara the wedding coordinator she seemed rather stressed and it felt like a demand for payment on room to secure, as they were busy. Fair enough stressy time during covid but inflexibility to view the room on her side was not my problem. This also seemed to set in a trend unfortunately. We were also told of some personal procedures the coordinator had been through, which seemed unprofessional but we let it slide.

    Eventually we managed to view the room, choose our buffet foods and pay for our hotel room. A few details regarding parking etc were discussed. We were told we would meet 2 weeks prior the event to discuss finer details. We were fortunate enough to be gifted music. We also wanted further entertainment including a photographer. Which we had arranged. Understanding the need own insurances was fine. The way we were hounded for liability insurance was least professional, and actually set panic in. We even discovered that someone we had hired for the event had done numerous weddings there and not been asked for a certificate before. Now we found this detail off. Why would someone find the need to treat us differently to others?

    We 100% paid and had fulfilled our end of the bargain. Stuck to their pay up policy. A friend who is a carpenter had made us a beautiful arch to use and wanted to deliver it to the hotel the day before. As you may have guessed he was rudely dissmissed with a liability insurance certificate demand. This totally deflated us. The promised meeting 2 weeks prior the event did not take place even after calling the hotel myself to arrange this. We wouldve been able to discuss the arch detail then. Hotel seemed to find flexibility in allowing us to use said arch. I can only imagine because of their error and lack of service they offered us.

    We made a last minute decision to have welcome drinks for our guests on arrival and had requested options emailed. We were told this needed this to be paid 2 weeks prior the event, please bare in mind this is now a week prior the event. The menu attachment not emailed, however through a load of patience we arranged this.

    We met with Darren, the day before our event he who oversees everything he actually couldn't do enough for us. We would like to thank Darren and advise that he be people facing and perhaps deal with enquiring brides and grooms to be. He really did go above and beyond. I believe her name is Angie the duty manager that evening too was tops.

    So to sum up the experience we loved the location. We felt our money and liabilty certificates were most important to the wedding coordinator above giving us an experience to remember and treasure. Darren and Angie saved the day!
    All in all we had a good time. If you can, deal with Darren and Angie.

    Professional, friendly & caring, best day!

    We had our wedding here on 13th September and it was magical .

    From our first meeting with Sara we knew we had picked the right place, she was professional, friendly and caring nothing was too much trouble.

    On the day everything ran like clock work, everything Sara and ourselves had worked so hard for fell into place.

    Darren was excellent at his job as we're all members off staff from breakfast, waiting , bar , and housekeeping everyone made our day the best off our lives .

    Thank you so much for everything XXX

    I just want to email a massive thank you to Sara, Tim and Darren.

    Thank you for making our wedding reception so lovely.

    I really was worried about not having the chance to set up the room the morning of the wedding but you made the room look absolutely fantastic, you listened to everything I wanted and even made it better than what I had pictured. Everyone said it look fantastic.

    The food was lovely and it all ran so smooth and felt very relaxed.

    With the thought of dealing with 3 people we were also slightly concerned if they were to be a bit of miscommunication but there wasn’t at all. Everything was just how we had planned.

    So again, a really big thank you!!

    Kind regards

    Rachel and Robert.

    We had the most wonderful Wedding Day!

    Hi Sara and Darren,

    We just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help and support - both in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself. We had the most wonderful wedding day!

    We would greatly appreciate it if you would pass on our thanks to all members of staff who helped make our wedding so enjoyable. Staff were so approachable and professional!

    The kind waiter (sorry i dont know his name), he has dark hair and beard just like davy. Davy wears black most of the time so I had a few people came to me saying they thought he was Davy, i just couldn't stop laughing! Please let him know and we are sorry if he had funny looks from people, they might think why Davy is switching between red and black all the time!

    Many thanks again for your kind support!

    Kind regards
    Yun and Davy

    Thankyou so much for making our day exceptional

    The room looked amazing and your team went out of their way to help us, especially with the father of the groom who was in a wheelchair.

    Please thank all the staff who worked on the day & also Sarah the chef as she produced exactly what we wanted & we had so much great feedback on the food from the guests, especially the macaroni cheese!!

    Thank you again

    K & G

    First class - highly recommended!

    We had our wedding reception here at the end of May and the venue, service, food and entertainment were all absolutely first class. We were made to feel like stars. The food was exquisite, and the hotel has been recently renovated so the rooms are in a beautiful condition. Staff were polite, friendly and highly professional and nothing was too much trouble. In-house DJ was excellent. Outside courtyard is lovely to enjoy on a warm dry evening and we can find absolutely nothing to fault - highly recommended!
