Utterly amazing

From beginning to end, the Perch were incredible. So supportive, detail orientated and ahead every step of the way. We felt so looked after from beginning to end and are incredibly grateful to Emily the Events Manager for making our day so special.

mid summer wedding

Our wedding was on a hot mid-summer day, and the Perch's shady garden was the perfect place for our guests to relax before the meal. The marquee was cosy but not too crowded for our 120 guests, and the meal was a real feast (all the food was truly delicious!). The marquee looked fantastic throughout the afternoon and evening, and they were very flexible in letting us add our own touches to the decoration. The staff were efficient and attentive, and were very helpful both in the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself. They were particularly helpful in accommodating our guests with dietary requirements. All-in-all, the perfect wedding day!

Fab venue!!

We had our wedding at The Perch and it was an absolutely dream come true. We couldn't fault the team or the venue, they were all perfect! The venue itself is a fairly tale riverside old restaurant serving stunning and delicious food.
Can’t recommend this venue enough!

Absolutely perfect!

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! We wanted to say a massive thank you to you, for all of your hard work in the run up to the big day; and to all of the staff who were amazing for the day itself. We really can't praise you all enough.

It was just perfect!

From the moment we stepped foot in The Perch, Andrew & I knew this was the Wedding venue for us. We didn't feel like we we're compromising - It was just perfect. Deidra & her team from day one were fantastic, from the first meeting, the menu tasting, the set-up and the Wedding Day itself. I have received so many compliments regarding The Perch, from the location to the food and the staff. Everyone said it was the most relaxed, enjoyable Wedding they had been to and we couldn't agree more. Thank again to the Deirdra & all the team at The Perch, you made our Wedding Day more perfect than we could ever imagined it to be.
P.S - We would personally recommend the Lamb - it was divine!
