Perfect venue

Gibbon Bridge could not have made our wedding day more prefect. Extremely eager to sort any changes you may have, accommodating to requests and just so easy to speak with. Booking through covid had it challenges but the staff here made it so easy and as relaxing as you could get. They helped with my children on the day (6, 3 yrs) making them feel safe and comfortable to walk down the aisle first. they helped with the flow of the day and was there for us no matter what. they make you feel special and the staff are all extremely well presented, organised whilst still making you feel comfortable. 100% best place for us to get married, we felt it when we walked in the very first time. i could go on more, just amazing.

The most perfect day...

Hi Edward & Katherine,

Sorry it's taken us so long to message you both but we just wanted to say a massive thank you to both of you & the rest of the staff for everything you did not only on our wedding day but also in the lead up to it.

From your ability to decipher random emails that literally make no sense to being run ragged making sure our wedding day went without a hitch we can't thank you enough.

We had the most perfect day & loved every second of it, all our guests were in awe of the beauty of Gibbon Bridge, the relaxed atmosphere, the delicious wedding breakfast & how lovely all the staff where.

Please thank your gardener who I think is probably someone that goes unnoticed but is a key member of the GB team without him we wouldn't have the most wonderful photos to remember our day, the gardens look stunning in them all.

Edward my sister has asked me to thank you for how attentive you were towards her son, my nephew who has autism. Thank you for going out of your way to make them feel comfortable & arranging his food.

I have messaged the DJ but we wanted to say what a good choice of DJ that you have made, he was great & really made the evening party.

Thanks again & we'll see you at Christmas for the family fun day.

Mr & Mrs Iley xx

The day of my life made perfect by Gibbon Bridge

We had a brilliant day celebrating our wedding at Gibbon Bridge. Everything ran like clockwork from the guests arriving and checking in through to the ceremony, meal a and celebratory drinks. The good was fantastic and the staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. I would book it all over again with Gibbon Bridge and we'll be back there to celebrate.

Do it properly...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights to celebrate our friends wedding. The room was magnificent! On two floors with a lounge and bathroom on the ground floor and a massive bedroom with a super king size 4 poster bed upstairs. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous with a water feature, a pergola for the ceremony, and a little river running at the bottom. The food was excellent and the service impeccable. Janet Simpson the owner must be the hardest working lady in the world, she gets stuck in and helps make the lovely breakfasts. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. This is the place to get married, if you want to do it properly!

THE place to be!

THE place to be!
The first time we stayed at Gibbon Bridge was for my nephew's wedding - and it was the best wedding I have been to, no bias!! The hotel, gardens, bar, food and staff could not be bettered in any way.
I have been several times since, including for Mothers' Day lunch. This place makes every event extra special and I look for any excuse to travel to Chipping and to Gibbon Bridge

A Perfect Day

We had the pleasure of holding our civil wedding and reception at The Gibbon Bridge Hotel on Sunday 7th June 2009.
The staff throughout the process including Janet the owner had been simply excellent guiding us through the task of arranging our wedding.
Luckily for us on the sunday afternoon the staff had even arranged the weather for us enabling us to have a breathtaking civil ceremony in the garden bandstand.
The wedding breakfast that followed was a delight even the chef''s amoungst our guests stated the food was simply stunning and breathtaking, the dessert being one of high points of the meal.
We took the hotel on an exclusive basis which was just a perfect way to be able to spend our special day with our family and friends.
All our guests have commented on how it has been one of the best weddings that they have ever attended.
We would recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a hotel with stunning surroundings, excellent service and food which you think has been cooked in some of the top fine dining locations in the world.
Thankyou for making it our perfect day!

Everyone raved about how wonderful the food was and the quality of the hotel and staff.

We wanted to say how much we appreciated the wonderful day that the Gibbon Bridge team brought together for us. They were so hospitable and met our quirks and desires. Everyone in attendance raved about how wonderful the food was and the quality of the hotel and staff. Janet Simpson, Proprietor is truly inspirational in the way every detail was attended to and fine example to anyone running a business.
