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

Fantastic Wedding
Venue Service

By Lucy & David, on 08 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Dec 2017

After visiting countless venues for our wedding we had almost given up on the 'perfect' venue but then we visited the kings oak! I wasn't convinced by the building when we first arrived but once I walked through the door I was blown away by it! It is such a beautiful place with plenty of sparkle and I fell in love with it! Planning - We met with Paula who is so fantastic at her job and she made everything we wanted happen and nothing was ever too much trouble and it being a Greek wedding did her best to accommodate us! Food - lets face it most event food is never that good but the kings oak food was delicious! From the menu tasting to the actual day I was so impressed! We were able to meet the head chef and he answered all our questions and my friends and family are still talking about how great the food was! My only regret is not giving instruction about my wedding cake as I know a lot of people didn't eat it due to there being so much food. Staff - all the team were fantastic and made the whole day run so smoothly! Paula and Skye are an amazing team and I cant thank them enough for all their hard work! If you are considering booking a wedding or any event with the kings oak then just go for it you wont regret it!! Thanks everyone for an amazing start to our marriage!

AMAZING! Our son's Bar Mitzvah was there on Sunday 29th October and I don't even know where to begin with the review. Paula and Skye and the rest of their team were nothing but professional and so incredibly accommodating. They were both there at the actual event to oversee everything. All the staff were all so polite and did whatever was asked of them. The venue is so beautifully decorated, just a few balloons and you're ready to go. Fabulous food, their chef is a star. Ev...erything was served hot, tasted beautiful and on time. Paula, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making sure that our party went off without a hitch. You and your team are amazing.

This place is absolutely fantastic and is the most amazing wedding venue . I'm so delighted to have chosen the Kings Oak for my special day 03-09-17 (yesterday). Skye and Paula (wedding organisers) were so helpful and lovely as soon as I met them. Nothing was too much trouble at all. I had a Jewish wedding ceremony and party , so very different from a normal civil wedding. Paula was happy to adapt the wedding formalities and add little bits of insight for the day. The grounds are beautiful and will make fantastic pictures and the Kings Room and beach club marquee were so glamorous . If you love sparkle this is the venue to choose. We had many guests mention how delicious the food was from the canapés to starters, main course (perfectly cooked salmon) and white chocolate creme brûlée (restaurant quality let along mass cooking at an event). The venue even made us a special plate of canapés so we could take pictures doing the reception. Nothing was too much trouble and I had the best wedding day that I could ever have. I highly recommend the Kings Oak and the saxophonist Dan was truly impressive. Xxxxxx

Great Wedding
Venue Service

By Nichola & John, on 07 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017

My daughter had her wedding reception here on Saturday. It was amazing, the food, drinks, service and venue presentation were absolutely perfect. The staff were wonderful and so helpful. I would highly recommend the kings oak as a perfect venue for the perfect wedding. Ten out of ten for everything including preparation meetings before the date. So glad we hired the terrace and beach bar too. As weather was good we sat outside on terrace for drinks and canapés on arrival and had fab pics taken round pool and fountain. Thank you to all the staff for making my daughter's wedding day amazing x

Magical Wedding & Excellent Service
Venue Service

By Tania & Gary, on 16 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 13 Aug 2017

We had our wedding here on 13th August 2017. With less than 2 months to plan our wedding for 70 guests Paula and her team at the Kings Oak Hotel could not of done any better. The planning experience was seamless and our meetings with Paula's excellent event management skills made the whole process stress free. The staff on the day could not do more, they were attentive and helpful and provided a perfect service. The ceremony in the beach club marque was romantic and all the guest commented how the venue made them feel like they were in a different world. The décor in the Kings Room was simply magical and made all our guest gasp upon entering. The DJ provided by the venue played a great selection of music keeping the party going. The food provided by the catering staff was excellent. Great quality canapés were served at the reception drinks. The 3-course wedding dinner was amazing and of very high quality our guest commented that the meal was one of the best wedding dinners they have ever had. For our wedding menu we had Starter Choices - Prawn and Crayfish Salad or Tricolore Salad, Mains - Roast Lamb with Trimmings or Jerk Chicken with Rice, Plantain and Coleslaw. Dessert - Chocolate Torte or Mango Sorbet.) The meal choices were perfectly served by well organised the team. The late night snacks were also of high standard. All of the food was amazing, ourselves and our guests will be returning. Thank you so much to Paula and all the team at the Kings Oak Hotel for making our day so perfect we couldn't of had a better wedding. Thanking you from Gary , Tania and all the family.

By Krina & Simon, on 31 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Jul 2017

Me and my husband got married on 15/07/17. From start to finish the team here made our wedding the easiest wedding ever! People always asked if it was stressful to plan but I really can't say it was. We planned in 8months! I must say a massive thank you to Paula and Skye. Skye was my guardian angel in the whole process. Advised us on everything was honest about any idea's we had. The day was truly magical and I want to do it all over again! Skye was by my side the whole way through. The rooms were decorated absolutely incredibly. The food people are still telling me how yummy it was! The waiting staff were superb! I think there was a young lady called Ellie who literally had my back the whole evening checking in with me, my dad and maid of honor making sure everything was perfect which it was. I can't thank you all enough for the time of my life! Friends say it was the best wedding they have ever been to! I will never forget all that the Kings oak team have done for me and my husband! Lots of Love Krina & Simon xxx

My husband and I cannot thank the wonderful staff at The Kings Oak Hotel enough! They are so efficient, and dedicated to their work which was so reassuring to us as we planned for our big day. The girls at Kings oak (especially Paula and Skye) were with us every step of the way, very accommodating and flexible. Our wedding day was just amazing! From the decorations, delicious food, friendly staff to the warm and welcoming atmosphere at the Kings oak. All our guests commented on the food saying they came away stuffed lol! Very generous portions. The kings Oak Hotel excel when it comes to wedding receptions. My husband and I wish we could get married there all over again! Thank you so much.

Highly Recommended Wedding Venue

By Sibel & John, on 23 May 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Mar 2017

We had our wedding here on 18th March 2017. It was fantastic! The Kings Oak team are just brilliant. The food and service on the day were superb, they all worked really hard! I have had some really great feedback from my family and friends from the day! I would 100% recommend going to see this venue and team. Skye and Paula are brilliant and would do anything to make sure you get what you need. They were always on the end of the phone if I ever had last min questions! Their patience is unreal. Thank you ladies, the venue looked amazing on the day and I couldn't have done it without you!!
