A fantastic day, at a fantastic venue!

A fantastic day made even more special by the staff at The Cresset. With the attention to detail being second to none, nothing was too much trouble. Alison was so helpful and assisted us with almost every aspect of the reception. The food, which was cooked the The Cresset''s own chefs, was high quality a superbly cooked. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough. If you want a great, flexible venue at a reasonable price with highly trained & customer orientated staff then this is the place to book.

First Class attention to detail, excellent food, lovely room setting, fantastic personal attention by Alison wedding co-ordinator

My son and daughter in law were married on 5th August 2006. Everything was wonderful, right from the start when we met Alison, she made us feel at ease, thought of all the little things you tend to forget. The personal attention was wonderful. It was an extremely hot day, Alison was on hand as soon as we arrived with a jug of iced water to keep us cool. The Cresset provided beautiful flowers for the Marriage room and the cake table. All the staff were courteous, friendly and polite. A room was
provided for the bridal party to use during the evening, for freshening up. The food was superb, piping hot and plenty of it and the evening buffet was just as good. I would recommend this venue, and have already done so, to anyone.
