my son and now daughter in law had their wedding reception here last Saturday (28.07.18) and it the service provided by the Kings Oak was extremely disappointing. First off, there was a pool party that brought the guests in on coaches, for this reason the car park was completely closed to any other visitors or guests until 10pm. We was not notified of this prior to the day and our guests were left with nowhere to park for the duration of the reception. My daughter in law had made favours for hours prior to the big day and these were left with the pub to bring out when dressing the hall. This was not done and favours were not received by the guests. food ordered (45.00 a platter for 8 guests), wow, what can I say!!!! all the platters ordered did not come out to the guests!!!! food was removed and disposed of at 10.30pm leaving the guests with nothing until the reception ended at 12 midnight. The room was not air conditioned and was extremely hot. The in-house dj did not speak a word the entire night, when songs were requested by guests they were shunned and at 11pm the music system lost power. The dj spent 10 minutes fixing the problem, having to leave the hall twice to remedy the problem, however, he did not speak to the guests or make any apology, just cracked on with whatever he was doing in silence. my son and daughter in law spoke to the Manager, telling her of the blunders and disappointments. they also told them of the inacurate food platters and how the platters were removed, still containing food, half way through the reception. We have yet to hear anything!!! :(

Our Big Day

By Gina, on 13 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Apr 2018

Firstly thank you so much, to all the staff at the Kings Oak Hotel for making our wedding day run smoothly. The planning side was handled extremely professionally by the ladies in the office. We had several meetings with Paula, she was always full of enthusiasm and nothing was every any trouble for her. Thank you to Skye, who I’m sure must just sleep at her desk, always responding to my email queries very quickly! Our guests commented on how impressive the food was, not only was it served hot (sometimes venues can struggle with getting everyone served a hot meal) the portions were huge and it was delicious, what else could you wish for!? The day itself ran extremely smoothly, even though it did bucket it down and that is of course thanks to all the staff. They really are a great team. Thank you

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that helped arrange my 40th Birthday celebrations in the Kings Room this weekend. Everything was perfect, from the moment I walked into the Kings Oak I felt that I did not need to worry about anything and that all arrangements were under control. The band and set-up were all taken care of, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and the Bar staff made sure that everyone knew myself and my husband so the evening felt very personal to me. The room looked stunning and the Hog Roast and Halloumi baps were excellent and enjoyed by all. We also visited on Friday for a pre-birthday Afternoon tea, which was just delicious and we had a lovely afternoon. Thank you to Jill, Paula and the whole team for making my birthday weekend so memorable, I have had an amazing time!

My husband and I got married here in February 2018 and the venue exceeded expectations! The events team were so helpful from start to finish whilst planning the wedding, special shout out to Skye and Paula - Thank you! On the actual wedding day it was completely stress free, the whole team managed the day perfectly and my husband and I couldn’t of asked for any better. The staff decorated the rooms perfectly and the food was great...massive portions and all guests were thoroughly surprised as wedding food isn’t always the best! I’m so grateful to have picked this venue for our wedding day. A combination of a beautiful venue, excellent food and fantastic attentive staff! I’d recommend to anyone planning a wedding :)

Wonderful Party 28th December 2017
Venue Service

By Daniel, on 08 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Dec 2017

??????????Reviewed 2 days ago Joshua's Bar Mitzvah - Party Function Rooms 27.12.2017 My son Joshua had the most wonderful party at the Kings Oak Hotel on 27th December 2017. This is largely due to the wonderful staff and setting of the banqueting suite but in particular as a result of the organisational skills of one very lovely events organiser named Paula. Paula and Team Kings Oak delivered a superb feast to the guests on the evening prepared by their very talented chef. The interior decoration and set up of the function areas left my both myself and my guests awestruck. It was a veritable winter wonderland setting. The entertainment services arranged from an elite list supplied by Paula were second to none and a delight in every aspect. They kept the party lively happy and colourful from start to finish. The photography brought tears of joy to my eyes and warm memories for the rest of my life such was the sublime standard of the two photographers Michaela and Andrea, who came highly recommended by Paula. Bravo to Team Kings Oak and thank you for one of the happiest days of my life. This is a place for celebrations not only for it's setting and appearance but because of the warm, friendly and very professional team who truly believe in providing service at it's very best and with all their heart. Warm Regards, Daniel I
