What we can offer at The Missing Sock....
You can choose to have your wedding ceremony with us, as we are fully licensed for registrar weddings, or just come to us for your after-party if you’re getting married elsewhere. We have a great outdoor area for summer ceremonies and for guests to wander and party afterwards. The Restaurant/Function room accommodates 70 bum placements, the adjacent connected coffee lounge a further 40 for formal dining. More if you are inviting sardines. For the more relaxed evening buffet and party our internal capacity is 150.
We have a great choice of international dishes for the wedding menu which can also be customised to suit your tastes and theme, or have vegetarian, vegan, allergen-free options. The origins of tMS are based on international cuisine of an interactive nature, we love world foods but have had some great traditional themes too. The Wedding Breakfast will be designed and delivered to meet your preferences and budget. Welcome drinks, canapes and evening guest dining options are numerous with the garden fire-pit and outdoor pizza oven, and we can arrange alternative food stalls if you’d like to add to that festival feel. Our garden marquee creates a fantastic alternative party space for bands, or have a karaoke on the outdoor London bus bar, whilst your pizza's cooking.
The venue itself is a hidden gem, a maze of places to chill, chat or rave. Easy access to city and main routes, plenty of secure parking. The ethos of tMS is captured by the mural on the cocktail bar as you enter, echoed throughout the venue. We have spaces for all ages; our Snuggles Wisdom room is a tranquil hole for elders to relax and chat. For a family event the video room and an enclosed play area will keep the children occupied whilst the party goes on elsewhere. Singing at its best and worst on the karaoke double decker bus, sharing a vapour shisha pipe in the hookha tent, jigging to bands or a silent disco on the dance floors, toasting marshmallows on the firepit or just chilling in many of the hideaway places. Some great opportunities for wedding photos with a difference. Our entertainment options are many - just tell us what you want and we will do our best to deliver the day of your wedding dreams!
Although we are not a hotel, which helps our flexibility, we do have 3 ensuite garden rooms. Also 2 shepherd huts and a camping and caravan facility are available for guests.
Next day farewell breakfasts always work well for both us and the guests to reflect on the wonders of the day before.
Pop in and have a nose, chat with us without any commitment. Use us as a benchmark for that wedding with a difference!

Mrs Lesley Thomas
We held our reception at the sock in August 2014. Hugh and his staff went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect. Beautiful food (BBQ buffet in the afternoon and pulled pork/pizza in the evening) was enjoyed by all. Hired the party zone and plenty of our guests enjoyed the Karaoke bus!! There is a real spirit about this venue which all our guests felt. Give it a go, you will nor regret it. Lesley and CharlotteSent on 03/09/2014

Quirky, fun, amazing
We held our wedding reception here 02/05/14, and right from booking we were made to feel special. Hugh and the whole team made our day a dream, very helpful, and accommodating. The food was out of this world we chose sharing platters and there was more than enough for all. We had two very fussy eaters who were aware of our food choices and the staff went out of their way to offer alternatives. Our aim was for everyone to have a fun time and all our guests have complimented our choice of venue as there is something for everyone whether you want to dance, sing along to the karaoke, sit round the fire pit toasting marshmallows, enjoy the many features of the garden, or take your shoes off and put your feet up, there is even a play area for the little ones.Sent on 06/05/2014

quirky and attentive
We held our wedding reception here in November 2013. They were so helpful and friendly and flexible with our planning. Guests have since said the food was great and the venue was great. It is a relaxed atmosphere with really friendly staff working hard to make sure everyone enjoys themselves. You get so much choice with what you want from the day - a pick n mix kind of deal. Our choices included use of the karaoke bus and toasting marshmallows on an open fire. We had platters for our day guests and pizza from the outdoor clay oven for the evening guests. We love the Missing Sock.Sent on 02/02/2014
