    Exceeded expectations beyond anything we had ever imagined!

    Words will never justify how incredible this venue and staff are! We have had so many of our guests get in contact to say they had never been to a wedding with such kind, warm and friendly staff. From start to finish nothing was ever too much- even when we moved the wedding by a week due to Covid concerns they accommodated every single detail. We won’t ever forget our day and this is largely down to the staff and the most festive and cosiest of venues- they felt more like family by the time we reluctantly had to leave them! I am SO glad we chose this place for our wedding and the memories are truly special. From Bri calming my nerves due to Covid panics in the run ups to Dave, Marina and the girls entertaining my children! If you are planning a wedding- there can never be any better venue!

    The Oakhouse Hotel's reply:

    Georgie and James, what a real pleasure it has been to help you plan your day and see it unfold despite all of the obstacles in your way. Your kind and generous words touch our hearts and make our jobs so worthwhile. Our doors are always open! Thank you, All the very best!!

    Made our wedding dreams come true

    We stumbled upon the Oakhouse when looking for the perfect place to hold our “sequel” wedding celebrations following a small Covid wedding the previous year. It was everything we wanted and didn’t think we’d be able to find. We wanted a party that felt as special as a wedding, but with none of the formal stuffiness weddings often bring.

    Think strawberry margarita reception drinks, a build your own nacho and taco station instead of canapés, pizzas with the most incredible toppings that we were able to name ourselves, tequila shots instead of favours and dancing the night away to the most amazing band in our very own “pub” filled with all our favourite people.

    We were very specific in the brief we gave Brianna and the staff at the Oakhouse and they went above and beyond at every stage to make our dream a reality. They could not have been more accommodating or helpful during the planning stages, and on the day itself Nisha and her team looked after us and our guests with such care and attention to detail. They were simply incredible.

    The Oakhouse was everything we wanted and so much more. Book this venue now and let them give you the perfect wedding too.

    The Oakhouse Hotel's reply:

    Jo your kind words bring tears to our eyes! Thank you so much, it was such a pleasure for us to plan such a unique and fun celebration for you both and we wish you all the happiness in the word. All the best!

    The perfect day

    From start to finish the entire Oakhouse team were exceptional. The entire planning process was made so easy by the lovely Bri, nothing was too much and she had so many amazing suggestions. Our emails were responded to very quickly, meaning that we didn't get stressed.
    The chef created a menu based on our very specific ideas, and everyone complemented the food on the day.
    The service team are amazing. The Oakhouse truly felt like a home away from home.
    The fact that you can choose everything yourself and you're not limited to set packages means that our wedding had so many special details.
    The venue itself is beautiful, and has so many areas suitable for different activities. We were able to cater for all our guests because of this.
    I would 100% recommend the Oakhouse to anyone looking for a beautiful, cosy, fun and personalised wedding experience.

    The Oakhouse Hotel's reply:

    Carrie, thank you for your incredibly thoughtful and kind words. It was such a pleasure to plan your day and we loved your quirky ideas for your menu! It is always so great to know you are serving couples and their wedding guests exactly want they want on their day, no compromises. All the best!

    Wedding was Amazing

    What can i say?

    Firstly a massive massive thank you to all the amazing staff who spent the evening before the wedding preparing the room and setting it up to look fantastic. It went way beyond our wildest expectations and looked phenomenal. I went to bed that night with no worries because i knew you all wanted it to be amazing for us. It was a very late night into the morning prepping for us to have a brilliant day. You guys rocked. It was a great evening listening to music, singing and a bit of swaying whilst everything came together.

    Thank you to Kelly the chef who had to deal with last minute guest changes and meals. Kelly gave us multiple options for our guests who had intolerances and an allergy. The Oakhouse were so chilled out about this which made us relax even more.

    Every meal we have had here before the wedding has been great. The food is to such a high standard no one is left feeling dissatisfied. Portion sizes are incredible.

    My now mother in law has now become a regular here for meals and occasional drinks. She is always welcomed like an old friend. She loves coming back and says it was the best choice to have our wedding hosted here and this was before the wedding.

    There was so much pride and love that went into our wedding, it was like working with friends and family.

    On the day itself, It was amazing. Both Mel and Marina came up to the church with me helped me with my dress and made sure it laid well as i entered the church. On coming back down we were met by drinks in the square and Marina quickly dispatched my flowers into water to keep them fresh. These were displayed all evening on the reception desk so guests could see them, alongside the bridesmaids.

    Kelly set up our donut tower cake which looked fantastic despite us holding it up with cello tape! (my fault) It was moved when we needed to cut it and guests assembled for us. Everything was done with no fuss made and felt effortless for us as a couple. They filled us with so much confidence that we could just relax and enjoy the day to the fullest.

    The wedding breakfast was a huge success. Everyone said how great the food was and the portions were huge. The tables were beautifully laid out. So so much thought went into this from the team the night before.

    There are so so many little things i could list that The Oakhouse Hotel and it’s staff did that were above and beyond that i would be here all day listing them. Things we didn’t think off but they anticipated for us. Amazeballs! The staff are brilliant, kind, funny and super helpful, plus great dancers on the night to help your guests along. Make sure your DJ plays “Summer of 69” Dancing behind the bar with them is optional though!

    Dave thank you for helping our 2 guests who had disability requirements. They said you were so kind and everyone commented on you helping out Uncle Dave on the stairs and our other guest In a wheel chair. She was so delighted to be able to come and thought she wouldn’t be able to due to the different levels in the oak house. Nisha thank you for the swift execution of “the ramp” and checking on my teenagers for me during the evening. It was lovely of you to do so and for all your help over the past 2 days. Nothing was ever a bother for you and made my life so much easier and less stressful. Actually i can say there was no stress at all as it was all handled so bloody well!

    Marina!! What can we say? You have been amazing throughout this entire process. your enthusiasm is contagious and your suggested changes were the right ones. Thank you for your support throughout this wedding. It took us a while to get here thanks to Covid. But It will not be forgotten and one of our most treasured memories. We did not stop smiling and laughing all day and night! Utterly brilliant and we couldn’t have done it all without your hard work and dedication. Our families and friends have said how wonderful it was and how thoroughly enjoyable it was. Every need was met in full!

    Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so very special for us. You were our first choice and the best choice. We got everything and so much more!

    Mr & Mrs Davis x

    ps. thank you so much for our card and flowers. Sorry we didn’t get to see some of you before we left but understand you are all probably bloody knackered!!

    The Oakhouse Hotel's reply:

    Thank you for such an incredible review and you will forever be welcomed back with open arms! We are so honoured to have been able to create these magical memories for you to treasure.

    Our wedding was perfect because of The Oakhouse!

    Firstly, a huge thank you to Bri, Marina, Dave and the wonderful team at the Oakhouse for making our wedding the most perfect day for us.

    At a time when we couldn't find anywhere to help us with the small, intimate wedding day we wanted due to covid, Bri came to our rescue! We had come across the Oakhouse during our research of wedding venues but had discounted it for being out of our price range. However we really wanted a dog-friendly venue so that our spaniel Amber could be with us for our celebrations and so we contacted Bri in the hope she could help us.

    From our very first email, nothing was ever too much to ask. Bri listened to all of our requests and was able to advise us and assist us in every way. Nothing was too much trouble. While I know the Oakhouse offer extensive wedding packages, we were able to work with Bri and the team to plan a day at a fraction of the cost, which suited our needs and requirements. THANK YOU SO MUCH. It was everything we dreamed of.

    I really cannot recommend the Oakhouse team enough. The customer service, passion and genuine care for each client that they provide, stands them heads above anywhere else we approached.

    In terms of our day -

    The decor that the hotel provided was beautiful and really complemented the decorations we brought along too. Marina and Dave went absolutely above and beyond, working non-stop to ensure every little detail was thought about and on the day they treated us like a King and Queen! We felt thoroughly spoilt and lucky to have had such a wonderful wedding day, exactly how we had imagined.

    Thank you for letting us have the band, for letting us bring our dog, for setting everything up so beautifully!

    The food was fantastic. We opted for a relaxed buffet but again, the menu and options were tailored to exactly what we wanted every step of the way, working with the multiple choices the hotel already provided. There was so many options and choice, that there would be something to suit everyone. I know our guests were raving about the fantastic food we had....and they still mention it now!!!!!

    Most of our wedding party stayed at the hotel after the wedding and it was just such a lovely atmosphere. The wedding suite was wonderful.

    So many of our friends have said our wedding was one of the best they have been too! It was so relaxed and chilled and a wonderful atmosphere. This is all down to you Bri and the team for helping us have just the most fabulous day.

    We recently popped in announced and were greeted like family, months on from our wedding day. I think this is such an important thing to consider, when so many venues are so busy, overpriced and in it for the money and business. The Oakhouse has such a family, cosy, intimate atmosphere and it has given us memories of our special day which will last forever. Thank you over and again for everything you did for us.

    The Oakhouse Hotel's reply:

    Tasha & Geoff! What can we say! Your review is absolutely beautiful and so kind. It was such a pleasure to be able to host you and we really pride ourselves on working to every individual couples needs, budget and preferences so to hear that we met this for you is so wonderful. You (& Amber of course!) will always be part of the Oakhouse family and we welcome you with open arms whenever you wish to return to visit and stay with us.

    Excellent small wedding venue and hotel

    We booked this venue last minute as our original wedding was cancelled in Cyprus due to the covid restrictions. Words cannot describe how amazing this venue and the people that run it are. It is a perfect venue for a small wedding, the hosts were more than accommodating for any requests and made our day for sure.

    The Oakhouse Hotel's reply:

    Thank you so much. We adored your intimate wedding Gemma! Thank you for your kind words and we were so pleased to be able to give you the perfect day. All the best!

    Absolutely Outstanding!

    WOW, what can we say!
    We had the perfect day at The Oakhouse, the hotel is beautiful and the gardens are absolutely breath-taking, our guests were speechless.
    Brianna, the wedding coordinator made our dreams come true, nothing was too much trouble. We could design our wedding our way. The food, staff, accommodation were all outstanding. Thank you to all at The Oakhouse.

    The Oakhouse Hotel's reply:

    It was an absolute pleasure planning your special day and you looked so beautiful! Please stay in touch, we would be delighted to welcome you back to the hotel in the future. All the best!

    Get married here

    The Oakhouse was the perfect venue! After having to cancel our first abroad wedding due to Covid, we chose the Oakhouse as somewhere that is local to us and it was one of the best decisions we made. The team on the run up were so great, every question I asked (and there was a lot!) was answered quickly and put me in total ease that the day would be perfect. Everyone on the day that worked was so kind and worked so hard to ensure that everything was perfect! Our guests tell us it was also the best food they have ever had at a wedding (another thing that was super important to us). I honestly have nothing bad to say about this place, and if anyone is even considering marrying at the Oakhouse, I would say absolutely do it! We really never wanted somewhere that felt like a wedding factory - and the Oak was perfect for us!

    The Oakhouse Hotel's reply:

    Thank you Clare for such a wonderful review. You were our first 30 person wedding amongst the many covid-19 rules and restrictions and we wanted to work really hard to make sure you had the best day you possibly could! I am so pleased to know we succeded. It was so beautiful and we were delighted you chose us for the very important task of creating your dream UK wedding. All the best!
