    Beautiful venue

    We got married here last weekend & had the perfect wedding. Chloe & Lawrence took out all the stress of the arrangements, they gave ideas & suggestions when needed, were responsive & flexible. Everything ran smoothly on the day. All the guests said the food was delicious, we ordered bowl food to keep the party going. We loved the informality of the venue, it was beautiful in the evening with all the candles lit. It has recently been refurbished but has retained its lovely character. I have no hesitation in recommending the Fountain House to others. I just wish we could do it all again!

    Perfect wedding

    I had my wedding at fountain house on 14/5/22 and it was absolutely perfect the day ran so smooth and we were completely stress free. I spoke with Chloe over email to arrange the the finer details and nothing was too much for her. On the day Norah was the one running the day and she went above and beyond to make sure it ran smoothly and stress free.
