If your looking for perfect, then this is it.

On the hottest day of 2023, we celebrated our 10 year anniversary in an intimate event at The Dodford Inn.
From the start Ben M & his lovely sister worked with us on our requirements & followed up with such a beautiful & memorable day. The venue is clean, spacious, scenic, location is ideal, parking is great & the views from their well maintained grounds are stunning! Perfect for pictures, you may even get a sunset.
The food by their chef & team was so beautifully cooked & presented. We asked for Thai food & that is exactly what we got. This was accompanied with fresh crispy prawn crackers & tasty samosa's. The children had their own menu.
Most of all we were all bowled over by the professional staff & ladies, running back and forth on a very hot day to fill up drinks, bring food and arrange for the cake. Nothing was too much from start to finish.
As brown Asian's, this was something different for the elder generation & many of them have said they really enjoyed something new. We will be back time & time again as this place now is part of our story.
We wholeheartedly recommend this place as your choice of venue for a wedding or a special occasion. We looked far & wide, for something perfect & The Dodford Inn is as close as you're going to get to perfect. You will not regret it.

Simply flawless...

A perfect setting at The Dodford Inn with a seamless and personal execution to our special day.

Ben and Becky were both quick to answer all questions before hand leading up to the day. They offered help and advice, were attentive to both our individual needs and wants.

On the day, staff provided quick solutions to our requests and the full team including the amazing waiters, waitresses, bar and kitchen staff were just the best group of people; all hugely dedicated, professional and caring.

The food just blew us ALL away. It was delicious and well presented with generous portion sizes.

The views and grounds are beautifully maintained and the facilities all easily catered for our group of 60 day guests and 100 + evening guests. There was a seamless transition between everything from getting the day ready in the morning, liaising with external supplies, florists, taking cake deliveries, supporting the ceremony itself and working through the canapes, food courses, speeches, band set ups and more. It all just meant our mind was well and truly on being present and enjoying the day.

With all the personal touches that each member of staff seemed to effortlessly make our day couldn't have been more perfect and we have the Dodford Inn to thank. We could not have asked for a better support team and we highly recommend them as a Wedding Venue.

The most incredible venue!

We had our wedding reception at The Dodford Inn and we were blown away by the venue and staff. We cannot recommend Ben and his wonderful team and venue enough. We knew immediately on finding The Dodford Inn that is was the venue for us. It is truly stunning and the grounds made for the most incredible areas for our guests and photos. The venue was beautiful and spoke for itself, which meant that we could keep our own decorations to a minimum and still have a gorgeous wedding. The venue has a beautiful modern rustic charm and a cosy atmosphere that made us feel right at home straight away.

Ben and his team went out of their way to make the day so special for us and our guests. They were attentive, friendly, and professional. They took care of every detail and made sure everything ran smoothly. The food was amazing and we received so many compliments from everyone. We had the BBQ and wood fired pizzas and it was delicious, fresh, and plentiful. The team was also super accommodating with the additional dietary requirements and allergies of our guests. Ben was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. He was always available during the planning process and gave us great advice on how to make our day memorable. He was flexible, accommodating, and supportive. He made us feel like we were his only clients and he genuinely cared about our happiness.

We highly recommend The Dodford Inn for anyone looking for a beautiful and professional wedding reception. The venue was simply perfect and provided the most incredible backdrop for our wedding, giving us amazing memories and photos with the gorgeous natural scenery and the beautiful decor, that we will cherish forever. Thank you, Ben and the team at The Dodford Inn, for making our dream wedding come true!

So professional and went above and beyond for everyone

I am so impressed with Ben and his professionalism and commitment to help with everything (even when things aren’t really his job role). The staff are amazing and made the day complete! The food was fantastic and the venue without the decor is stunning of course. They truly made mine and my husbands day blessed and smooth, even when there were hiccups. I will be forever thankful to have my special day there

We had an amazing day

We had a fantastic evening, we got married at our engagement party (a surprise to all our guests)! It’s family run and they couldn’t do enough for us, they are so friendly. The venue itself is beautiful and having exclusive use allowed for a more relaxed vibe with guests sitting out on the terraces, some in the bar and some on the dance floor. The food was great. I cannot recommend this venue enough. Thank you so much for making our night perfect.

Magical Wedding

We got married at The Dodford Inn on 12th August 2023 and it truly was everything we hoped for and more! The Dodford Inn is such a special place to us both, filled with warm memories and happy times, it couldn’t of been a better choice for our wedding venue. The venue itself is set in beautiful woodlands surrounded by nature and was the perfect fit for our boho style wedding. We were lucky enough to have the weather on our side and got married in the beautiful surrounds, guests were sat on hay bales and the setting for the ceremony couldn’t of worked better! The Dodford team went above and beyond to ensure our day was magical, nothing was too much! The coordination of the day was so well organised and contact on the lead up was amazing - a big thank you to Ben who answered every question I had and helped create such a special day! The wedding breakfast was incredible - we have had so many guests compliment the food, many commenting it was the best wedding meal they’ve ever had! Myself, my husband and a select group of our friends also got the pleasure of staying in the fantastic Bell Tents The Dodford have to hire - the perfect end to a magical day! The personal touch from this family run business is what really made it for us - every member of staff truly cared and for that we are so grateful! We wish you every success in the future and cannot recommend this venue more. All our love, Rosie & Charlie

Outstanding reception and service

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for hosting Saturday – you were all incredible and so so helpful, especially considering the crazy weather and my clumsy cousin!!

All of our guests commented on how great the food was and what a beautiful venue you have, and also how helpful and attentive the staff are, so massive thank you.

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience 😊

Perfect Day

Becky, Ben and their amazing staff worked so hard to provide us with the most perfect wedding day.
The organised yet relaxed approach was everything we ask for; all of our guests both day and evening were blown away with the beautiful venue and the first class food. We were provided with a wide choice of dishes to choose from the menu for the wedding breakfast, and all three courses were stunningly presented and absolutely delicious. The staff were so efficient and attentive throughout the whole day and we couldn’t have been looked after any better!
Thank you all so much for our perfect day!
