The most gorgeous venue with the best team

I can’t thank the frogmill enough for the perfect day. Even with lockdowns and a power cut - it was the day we dreamt of. The team worked so hard to make the day as perfect as possible and it was better than we could have expected. The value for money is incredible, the food absolutely delicious and the hotel rooms are ridiculously comfortable and quirky. We can’t stop coming back to stay/enjoy a weekend lunch - and we loved it so much we’re having our post-pandemic (hopefully) celebration there this summer!

The best wedding venue ❤️

We got married at the frogmill in July 2021, the day after restrictions were lifted! As it was our 3rd date, we had plenty of planning meetings with Alannah and she was so helpful and put us at ease throughout the whole process. The day went so smoothly and that is down to the great team at the Frogmill! The rooms are all stunning, the venue is so picturesque, the food was great and the staff are all so friendly. The only 'issue' we had is that the air con in the mill room decided to not work on the day and it was one of the hottest days of the year!! But aside from that, we had the best day! It's great to have a venue where you can stay the night before, the night of and not feel rushed one bit to leave the next day. We are coming back in a few weeks time for a night away and can't wait. Would recommend this venue all day long!

August 2020 wedding

This was our 3rd date with The Frogmill due to the pandemic. They were fantastic when it came to accommodating us with the changes and took a huge amount of the pressure of. Alannah who was our planner was brilliant and went above and beyond to help sort things for us. Our day went beautifully and everyone commented on how stunning the venue was (which it really is) The only small ‘disappointment’ was the food on the day. It was one of the reasons we picked this place and went with the sharing boards. Unfortunately the food wasn’t as good on the day as it was at the tasting. I don’t know if potentially this was due to the problems with staffing post pandemic/Brexit etc

Perfect wedding venue highly recommend!

We had our Wedding Reception at the Frogmill in March 2024. Would definitely recommend! Fred was our events planner and point of contact, Bea from the events team looked after us on the day. The handover between them was seamless. With the help of Fred & the lovely hotel reception team we reserved every hotel room for the Friday & Saturday night. Fred booked each table in the pub for us on the Friday and Sunday (not a private event as it’s pub, private events I believe are available but in the Snug) which was really special as it’s such a beautiful location and gave us extra time with our guests. The wedding reception itself was fantastic. Special mention to the servers and kitchen - each table was served and cleared quickly & Bea was diligent with the meals for our guests with allergies. The food itself was delicious and large portions. Fred went above and beyond to help us plan the event and accommodate all of our personal touches to make the day our own. Fred and team were on hand to look after our suppliers / cake delivery. Fred/ the Frogmill are pros at hosting weddings and it was reassuring that they were so organised and thought of many things we didn’t and helped us plan the weekend step by step. Despite it being a wedding venue the wedding reception and planning process really felt really personal. We stayed at the Frogmill a couple of times when planning the wedding and for 3 nights of our wedding. The hotel itself is lovely and the breakfast excellent. Their main menu is also 10/10. Thank you to Fred, Bea and the Frogmill!

Perfect place for our dream wedding

When we looked around The Frogmill we instantly knew it was the perfect wedding venue for us. The venue was beautiful and rooms were gorgeous.
Alannah was really professional and was always answered my emails promptly with any questions I had. Despite planning our wedding before and during COVID we were kept updated and informed. I would highly recommend!

October 2021

I want to start by saying that we had the best wedding day and fully thank the Frogmill for the day. They were amazing on the day and couldn’t have asked for better.

However our planning experience was not great - We booked our wedding in March 2020 (just before covid) for October 2021. Upon booking we were told (and had it in writing) we had a ‘wedding planner’ included in our price but that was definitely not the case.
Fortunately we didn’t have to rearrange but our planning experience was definitely not as great because of this. I do truly believe it was purely pandemic related but it did affect our experience overall.
We saw some reviews on social media that they were increasing prices and got in touch - we were told this was not the case. However closer to the time, we were told that our prices for canapés were the ‘old’ prices and therefore we’d have to pay more. In the scale of things, it was a small issue but definitely felt like a blow at the time considering we were trying to plan a wedding with little/no support and having to push to get answers on anything.

Eventually, I did get the ‘whatever happens, happens’ attitude and fortunately the day was amazing

The best day and best venue!

There are no words to describe how pleased we were and how much we enjoyed our wedding at The Frogmill. Alannah and her team made our day beautiful and perfect despite it being in June through Covid restrictions. The care, flexibility, attention to detail and friendly service was fantastic. This venue is something special and unique and after working in weddings at venues for years of my life, I fell in love at first sight. It was the best decision and i wish i could do it all again!

A dream venue and setting

This was just the dream venue! It was honestly the most beautiful setting. We’ve gone back for the last 3 years to celebrate our anniversary, the last time being the actual wedding day last October.
The staff were absolutely amazing on the day, and leading up to it. Extremely helpful and quick to respond when asking any questions.
One teeny hiccup with a room allocation but other than that, if I could, I would do it all over again.

We loved our special day celebrating at The Frogmill

Our event manager, Alannah, was very professional throughout the planning process and on the day. Martha was also great an the day and very attentive to detail. We needed to reschedule our wedding multiple times due to the pandemic and the staff were helpful. The Frogmill looks great in rain or sunshine and the venue was a great location for our wedding. The Mill Room was ideal for both the reception and wedding breakfast for our wedding party (120 people). We picked this venue for the food choices, however, with a few weeks to go we were contacted by The Frogmill to say the prices had increased due to the supply issue. This was very unfortunate, and caused us a lot of stress. The issue was eventually resolved, though we did make some changes. The hotel rooms are a good size and many of our guests were able to book rooms. The only issue with our room, was the use of feather bedding, which we had requested was changed ahead of time due to an allergy. We loved our special day celebrating at The Frogmill and our guests had a fab time too!

A place like home, a dream beyond imagination

Our wedding day was beyond expectation and one that made us feel at home, especially Megan, who was calmness personified and an absolute dream.

Creative, hard-working, attentive team in stunning venue

I can’t say enough good thing about The Frogmill and our wedding. The team went above and beyond to make our day special, nothing was too much trouble, and they stayed on top of every detail. We had high hopes and they excelled on every front! The venue itself is so beautiful with the right mix of traditional and modern, and the spaces for ceremony, drinks, dinner and the party are perfect. Our guests still mention how amazing the food was! We’ve returned on both our anniversaries to stay in the honeymoon suite again and it’s still such a magical place to visit. It was every we dreamed of and more. Can’t recommend enough!
