We had an absolutely wonderful wedding reception with the hurt arms

The venue is absolutely beautiful with lovely staff and AMAZING food. The views from the tollgate suite are brilliant, surrounded by free Derbyshire fields and woodland and the suite itself is fantastic for a wedding reception. Our only qualm was that we did have three wedding planners which wasn鈥檛 explained to us at any point, we just were passed from one to another. I do believe that one of them moved on to another job but it would have been best if we would have been able to count on one person specifically. Having said this, the staff were all so lovely and helpful and we REALLY enjoyed our food options too. We had a church ceremony then used the hurt arms for our drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception and had the venue until 1am. We stayed upstairs as part of our package and the room was lovely (up a lot of stairs) with complimentary bits for the happy couple.

Bar prices

They do not show their prices at the bar which is against the law. One does not know that he is paying 拢4.40 for a pint till he's paid for it. Two cups of tea in a teapot with one bag will set you back 拢4. Apart from that it is a lovely place.
