The perfect venue

The Reid Rooms was the first venue that we visited and we immediately loved it, even having only seen it in the rain. We truly had the most wonderful experience at the Reid Rooms - the venue had so much character and beautiful spaces to use at various points during the day, especially the garden and courtyard area. We had an intimate wedding with 50 guests, which felt very comfortable in the space. The staff were spectacular and attentive from the very first meeting - responses were always quick and thorough, the service on the day was seamless and our wedding co-ordinator was extremely helpful. They have a caterer that they work with, but we opted for completely dry hire. Organising hire of crockery and linen was easy using a company that often work with the Reid Rooms. We were able to bring in our own caterer and sound system. We arrived early on the day to set up and decorate the venue. We also stayed overnight in the farmhouse and had a wonderful breakfast with some of our guests the next day. It was a truly incredible day and we had so many compliments on the venue too! Thank you!

Perfect Venue

From start to finish, the reid rooms were incredible and supportive. Lucy our co-ordinator was an angel, she made me feel so at ease and helped from the ceremony to the wedding reception.

Always make sure our guests were happy and always checking on myself and Colin. I can not recommend you all enough to people.

From the first meeting as the wedding show to the morning after the wedding. You were all just perfect. The staff at the Farmhouse were fantastic and we all felt like a big family.

Thank you for everything

Our wedding was amazing

We had a vision for our wedding and the team at the Reid Rooms helped us execute it so well. They were patient with answering our queries and were super flexible with how we wanted to do things. On the day, the event coordinator was also fantastic and supportive. We had such an enjoyable experience planning our wedding and the day went smoothly thanks to the team! The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous too.

Reid Rooms was the perfect Wedding Venue!

We had our Wedding at the Reid Rooms in September 2023. Firstly, the venue itself is beautiful, with fantastic spaces for the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and party.
The team were amazing from start to finish, helping us lease with our suppliers and easing the planning process.
The cherry on the cake was the help on the day - we were slightly worried about things running on time, and Jill was simply amazing - there's no other word for it. She was everywhere! The day ran perfectly because of her help. We had the perfect day at Reid Rooms!

Our experience with the Reid Rooms was amazing! All staff members were incredibly helpful - Jill and Corinne in particular. They made our day run smoothly and were very accommodating to some ideas that we had.
The ceremony room was beautiful and intimate — just what we wanted. The grounds were spacious and pretty which made for fab photos/videos. We particularly loved the fairy lights throughout the building.
There is a decent sized carpark and our guests liked how close we were to surrounding hotels.
Will always recommend!!

Charlotte and James.
