The Perfect wedding venue !!!
We had our wedding day at the Lamb Inn in Sandford on Friday 1st Sept 2023.
We cannot rate this place highly enough and would rate it 10 out of 5 for every aspect if we could!
From the first contact with Nick and Vicky to our goodbyes after the wedding it was just perfection. We wanted a laid back wedding, with some formalities and traditions and that’s exactly what we got.
Nick and Vicky reassured us that no question or request would be deemed as silly and they would do their best to accommodate us and we instantly felt at ease.
We were able to decorate the Dorwich room ourselves and we had our day as we dreamed of without rules and restrictions being placed on us.
Vicky was a superstar, in ‘hosting’ our day. She remembered all the small details that were really important to us and was there when we needed her, without being intrusive.
The food and drink was phenomenal, memorably enjoyed by our guests both with a plainer and those with a more adventurous palate. We opted for the sharing platters, which were plentiful - our guests could eat as much or as little as they wanted. The two children we had as guests (included a gluten free child) were accommodated for well and the one vegetarian had a choice of their meal in advance.
The venue itself was perfect and quaint. Fortunately the sun shone on us on our day and we had our ceremony outside on the stage, with our guests in the pub garden, but even plan ‘b’ (inside the pub) would have been great too.
We stayed the night in the garden room, which was comfortable, luxurious, well equipped (even with a sturdy hook to hang a wedding dress from) . We used the room as a getting ready area and also where the ‘bridal party walk’ began from.
We can not recommend The Lamb Inn highly enough. We, and all our guests ranging from 8 to 86 years had a great time.
Thank you to Nick and Vicky and the other staff who made our wedding day all we dreamed of and more.
