At The Pumping House we truly believe each wedding is unique. You will work together with our wonderful in-house catering team and dedicated Wedding Manager to ensure every aspect of your day is tailored to create a completely bespoke and magical experience.
The Pumping House is a beautiful Grade II listed Nottinghamshire wedding venue, featuring two licensed ceremony rooms, main hall for wedding breakfasts, accommodation and a large lawn for outdoor drinks receptions. Late licensed to 1am, our beautiful red brick building, still featuring the original and distinctive chimney, is located on a six-acre site in the heart of Sherwood Forest. The tranquil surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for weddings and offers ample opportunity for unique photography. The Pumping House is just a short drive from Sheffield, Nottingham, Lincoln and Mansfield.
The Ollerton Room has beautifully unique parquet flooring and is filled with natural light from the original paned windows, creating the perfect setting for wedding ceremonies against a backdrop of tranquil surroundings. The Ollerton Room is the main room licensed for civil ceremonies with seating for up to 100 guests. The Engine Hall is also licensed for civil ceremonies from 80 to 150 guests.
Guests can enjoy drinks and canapes following the ceremony in either, or both, The Conservatory Room and The Oak Room. These rooms are convenient and versatile spaces, beautifully themed and have an additional bar area. Both rooms can also be used as a more relaxing area in the evening for those guests who seek a quieter space.
The Engine Hall provides an impressive setting for the wedding breakfast. The unique tiling, stunning arch windows and high glass ceiling create an illuminating space that is perfect for weddings from 50 to 170 guests. The room can accommodate various layouts and can be used as a canvas for different theming and settings. As dusk falls, guests can dance the night away, celebrating this memorable day and bringing The Engine Hall to life!
Perfect for the younger guests, our cinema and games room is complete with a 60 inch plasma screen and a variety of children’s DVDs and games.

Best day ever!
The Pumping House is such an amazing venue and was perfect for our wedding in January. We fell in love with the place as soon as we saw it and right from the beginning Lian and the staff were amazing!! They helped us plan and prepare the day and picked up on lots of little details that we may not have thought about. The character of the building is amazing and the internal decoration is stunning, especially the quirky themed rooms that are on the upper floor which give plenty of room for creative fun. All our guests commented on how beautiful, yet different the venue was, and how well thought out the day was....a lot of which we owe big thanks to Lian and the staff for!Sent on 31/03/2020
The planning of the day was made stress-free, and the attentiveness on the day was great, it really helped settle both our nerves and allow us to enjoy the day. We couldn't recommend the Pumping House enough and would like to say a huge thankyou for making our day so perfect! BEST....DAY....EVER!!
