An amazing venue complete with excellent staff
Venue Service

By James and Lucy Ridgway, on 15 Aug 2012

Thank you to the staff of Grays Inn! From the start, the staff at Grays Inn were excellent. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them, and no detail was left unattended. It made the build up to the wedding extremely easy and stress free. Julie and her team on the day were exceptional, and the venue itself looked amazing. The Great Hall is a fantastic venue - formal and grand, but small enough to be personal. The food was excellent and the option of bringing your own wine was great to. The venue is perfect for 100 + guests and the disco at the end sounded great (organised by Grays Inn).Once again, a massive thank you to Julie and her team - what a great day!!!

Absolutely wonderful

From the first time we met with the team at Gray's Inn and saw the stunning venue we knew it was the perfect place for our wedding reception. The team at Gray's Inn worked tirelessly to enable us to have a seamless and bespoke reception that we absolutely loved. It truly is one of a kind - and there is a genuine feeling of a bespoke service

Our wedding in July was fantastic the staff and appointed wedding planner was incredibly helpful. The outdoor marquis accommodated 200+ guests with ease in the beautiful garden, a central London location gem!

Fabulous venue and great service!
Venue Service

By Julia K, on 02 Dec 2011

Got married at Gray's Inn in Oct'11 and can highly recommend this stunning venue! Service was great, very professional and organised, both on the day and in the run up to it; Emma and Anthony have done an amazing job. Prices are reasonable when you compare to other central London venues; we felt we got a lot for our money. You can supply your own wine (there is corkage charge) which helps to keep the costs down a bit, there is plenty of free parking (in central London!), and food was delicious. Your guests will be very impressed - ours certainly were! Highly recommended.

Friendly staff, great service, beautiful location

Delicious food, fantastic attention to detail on the tables, and all in all the most perfect day.

Excellent location and excellent service
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Brooks, on 01 Dec 2011

We got married at the Honourable Society of Gray's Inn last Spring and the quality of service we received right from the first day we visited the Inn as a possible choice of venue up until our wedding day itself was excellent. My husband is a food connoisseur and he gave the wedding breakfast and canapes an excellent rating. The Events Co-ordinator was very helpful, friendly and super-efficient. Her attention to every detail was most impressive. If you are looking for a truly beautiful and classic venue to get married in London, the Honourable Society of Gray's Inn should definitely be on your list.

Excellent Christmas Wedding
Venue Service

By Rachel Adams and Mum, on 03 Apr 2011

Truly lovely
Venue Service

By Marcus Lavell, on 09 Mar 2011

The staff made everything seem easy and stress free. On the day everything ran perfectly and the venue was fantastic. We would recommend the Inn to anybody looking for the ideal venue for their big day.

Venue Service

By Linda Royles, on 03 Mar 2011

We could not have chosen a more perfect setting to celebrate our civil partnership with our family and friends. The history and provenance of the Hall created an amazing sense of place but was surprisingly unassuming. The service well that was another matter. If you want an experience where the people take the extra effort to make it happen and show that they care, this is the place to go. Friendly - very, accommodating - very, professional - at every stage - fun - yes. The food was top notch.... even the weather in October was superb!

Perfect venue for traditional style wedding
Venue Service

By James and Susan Watthey, on 25 Feb 2011

Gray's Inn could not have made our lives any easier or our wedding reception any more special; from the moment we went in to have a chat, through the tasting and the night itself, everybody was extraordinarily helpful and knowledgeable. Comments on the quality of the food and wine were uniformly (and rightly) glowing, the DJ recommended by them (Sliding Vinyl) was great and the stunning architecture of the Hall provided the WOW factor! What a wonderful, wonderful place for a wedding :-)
