Venue Service

By Claire & James, on 04 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Dec 2017

We had our wedding at the Crazy Bear Stadhampton on the 29th December 2017. We honestly cannot thank Guy and the events team enough as from start to finish they did everything possible to make our day special and as amazing as it was. We have absolutely nothing to complain about and that is so amazing as we've been to lots of weddings and picked up on things going wrong. THANK YOU Crazy Bear. You delivered way beyond our expectations giving us a day we will never forget! We look forward to coming and staying with you soon

Maryam & Lewis' Wedding
Venue Service

By Maryam, on 09 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Sep 2017

Huge thank you to the whole team at The Crazy Bear and of course Guy. We truly couldn't ask for more on the day and leading up to the wedding. All of our guests have since commented on how wonderful the venue was, the attentiveness of the staff and the organisation of the day which was down to the team and their efforts. We opted for the Thai wedding breakfast and the BBQ for the evening and again our guests commented on how wonderful the food was. If you are sitting on the fence about where to have your wedding and like the Crazy Bear then I cannot recommend this place enough! We found the whole experience exceptional.

Food far superior to 5 star London hotels
Venue Service

By Sally McHugh, on 09 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2017

Our son and daughter-in-law held their wedding at the Crazy Bear in Stadhampton which was absolutely perfect. On big days like this you do expect that something might go wrong but nothing did. The venue was decked out beautifully, the food was delicious and the staff were helpful and professional at all times. All our guests raved about the food which I can tell you was far superior to the food we have eaten in five star hotels in London. Keep up the good work Guy and the rest of the Crazy Bear team
