My Sisters Wedding
My sister Michelle got married here on 30th March 2019 to Michael and I feel compelled to write a review, which is unlike me! It was the most beautiful occasion and so well organised, the attention to detail was amazing! Well done to the team on what was a superb event, my sister and her new husband had the most wonderful time (and so did everyone else) we are all still talking about it now!!Sent on 24/04/2019

Our perfect wedding day!
My husband and I got married here on Friday 29th March & it was absolutely everything we could have wanted! Skye and the team made everything run so smoothly we had nothing to worry about, and the venue was decorated exactly how we imagined! Our guests all complimented the venue and the food as well :) Thank you for everything - I wish we could do it all over again!! XXSent on 24/04/2019

We had our wedding at The Kings Oak yesterday, everyone that attended said how beautiful the setting and all the rooms were. We have had many guests compliment the roast beef that was served perfectly and everyone adored the starter. All the food served on the day was delicious and the food and drink was on constant flow. We were made to feel comfortable and all my requests were met with no hesitation. They were all extremely accommodating and made the groom and I feel happy and relaxed all day through to the evening. Absolutely would recommend having a wedding or special event here! Thank you everyoneSent on 24/04/2019
