Wonderful Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Ashley & Ben, on 11 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019

All went so well; it was the best day of my life and myself and Ben are so grateful to the venue for making our day perfect. Jacob, Adrian and Jazz were amazing, they looked after so well and sorted any little bits out quickly for us. The staff were all fun and the guests all have said how lovely the staff were throughout the day and night! It was amazing and an incredible experience at the old bell and all our friends and family loved it. Thank you to Gabriela for all your hard work in planning our wedding, you were amazing and just made things feel so smooth even when there may have been little glitches everything was sorted ASAP which was brilliant so thank you so much!

Wonderful Winter Wedding
Venue Service

By Ali & Carl, on 22 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Dec 2018

We both knew The Olde Bell from having grown up not far away but didn't immediately think of it as a venue, but I am SO glad we did as I could not imagine a more perfect setting for our winter wedding. Amy was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. She was calm, patient, incredibly warm - and very organised! We had a great meeting with her and the General Manager Jeremy and we both came away feeling confident. Amy replied to our emails immediately or at least within a couple of hours (anyone planning a wedding will know how frustrating it is to have to wait for days to get a reply from a supplier) and didn't once rush for answers to questions. We had several alterations and big changes just days before the wedding, which Amy handled in her stride without any fuss or questions. Calmness and the ability to be very organised is exactly what any Bride and Groom needs in the run up to and on the big day! On the day, all the staff were really kind and supportive to Carl and I. The tables looked stunning. The service for the dinner was brilliant. The food was gorgeous. The venue obtained a late licence at a small cost so we partied til 1am and they kept the hotel bar open til 2am for the hardcore party guests (Bride and Groom included)! I had so many comments from our guests on how magical the venue was - which only confirmed exactly what we knew from the start, that The Olde Bell was the ideal place for our wedding. I couldn't recommend The Olde Bell and their team highly enough to any couple looking to book a fantastic, characterful and beautiful venue for their wedding.

Fantastic Time
Venue Service

By Charlotte Saunders, on 23 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2016

Thank you for your email and for everything you did in the preparation for our big day and on the day itself. We had such a fantastic time and so did all our guests. We've had so many people comment on how nice the venue was, how much they enjoyed it all especially the food. We had pretty much all positive things to say, we are both extremely pleased we chose to get married at The Olde Bell and were really happy with all your help and guidance in the lead up to the big day and also all the help and effort you and the team put in to ensure we had an unforgettable day. We would certainly recommend getting married there to friends and family. Once again thank you for everything, you certainly helped make our day very special and are really grateful for all the effort you put in to ensure it went off as well as it did.

Fantastic wedding day, everthing else poor
Venue Service

By SH and HKH, on 27 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 25 Jun 2016

We had our wedding at the Olde Bell in June and have waited a short time for a response to our feedback from the hotel chain regional manager. However as this has not been forthcoming I have summarised our comments to the hotel below In summary we have given a one star rating based on a composite of 1) the wedding prep and day itself 2) the service, cleanliness and support of the staff to our party and general users of the hotel/restaurant whilst we were there, 3) the response and follow up from the hotel since the wedding 1) The wedding prep and the wedding day itself (service provided pre wedding and on the day by Rebecca was 5 star) was fantastic and way above the 1 star rating given above 2) The Hotel accommodation was overpriced for the level of service, (staff motivation, politeness, attentiveness), cleanliness of the rooms and linen etc. Our guests had numerous issues that were not consistently dealt with. The level of service in the restaurant was poor for our party and other guests using the facilities. 3) Despite sending Rebecca feedback that was forwarded on to regional manager this has not been acknowledged or responded to despite the feedback being provided over a month ago now. We totally enjoyed our wedding day, however for anyone looking to book the Olde Bell we would suggest you really consider the non wedding feedback on Trip Advisor etc as this gives you a real perspective on the level of accommodation and service provided at the Bell that you can expect to receive outside of the wedding planning and delivery.

Thank you for giving us a wonderful wedding
Venue Service

By Ben & Michelle, on 19 Nov 2015

Ben and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for truly giving us the best day of our lives. Everything on our big day was perfect, not even the rain could stop the joy. Thank you so much for being on hand to welcome us back to the barn when we arrived from the church. The umbrella was a perfect touch and well timed - so was the Prosecco! You really were hands on! The barn was set up perfectly and everything looked beautiful. We couldn't thank you and the waiting staff enough. Everything ran so smoothly. The food was exceptional and all our guests raved about it for days afterwards. The chef is very good. We were very impressed. The Olde Bell really lived up to expectations if not exceeded them.

Thank you
Venue Service

By Charlie & Rob, on 12 Oct 2015

I just wanted to say thank you to you both for all your help to make yesterday such a success! We had a fantastic time! As far as I could tell everything went smoothly, if it didn't Rob & I certainly didn't notice! Please can you say thank you to Gerry the F&B manager and his staff. Gerry kept an eye on us and made sure we had everything Rob and I needed after you left Sophie,(especially a well deserved nightcap!) please can you thank him on our behalf!

A small note to say thank you so much for facilitating such a perfect wedding day for us! You were such a lovely calming presence though out, and you couldn’t have done a better job at creating exactly what we were hoping for - I can’t say thank you enough to you and all the gracious staff at the Olde Bell!

THANK YOU!

By India and Nick, on 24 Sep 2015

I still can't quite get over how perfect our wedding day was - it really was very very special - and that is hugely down to you and the organisation and thought you and your team put into the day (especially Magic - he was wonderful!). I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for everything you did for Nick and I.

I just wanted to let you know that both Greg and I were so happy with how our day went. The team on the day were excellent.

Our Wedding

By Heather and Robert, on 16 Sep 2015

We had such a memorable day and everything went without a hitch-thanks to you and your wonderful team. I was aware that you and the team were there but so unobtrusively . Everybody loved the venue, the food and we had such a fun time especially at the disco!
