Amazing Venue!
Venue Service

By Charlotte Brooks, on 28 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2017

Nicky & the team at the Tally Ho Hotel were amazing from start to finish. We could not have asked for a better team to have helped us create our dream day. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always ready to help us with a smile on their face. They understood how important every element was and pulled out all the stops on the day - the day went like clockwork and was really well planned from their side. We got married at the venue as well as have our wedding breakfast and party at the end, and most of our guests stayed the night too. Everyone complimented the venue and especially the food. It was fantastic and we are so glad we chose to have our special day here! Thank you so much for everything!!

We got married in August 2017 and it was just the best day. Nicky and the team worked tirelessly behind the scene making sure everything ran smoothly, nothing was too much trouble and the staff are amazing. Venue works perfectly and the accommodation is fantastic.

Our Dream Wedding
Venue Service

By Emma and Matthew, on 07 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Apr 2017

We got married in April 2017 at The Tally Ho Hotel. We were recommended the venue by a family member who had been to a friends wedding there. We knew the moment we walked in that it was the one for us! The venue is beautiful, looked after and has a lovely vibe. We met with Nikki and felt that she understood our needs, was knowledgeable and nothing was too much. Nikki was brilliant at every step and we couldn't have arranged the wonderful day we had without her and the teams expertise, kindness and good humour. Our day went smoothly and surpassed all our expectations. Our guests were delighted with the venue, and a big bonus is that the accommodation is only a few steps from the main venue and were for our own use only. We would book the Tally Ho again in a heartbeat and I am already looking for an excuse to book more events there in the future. Thank you from us both x

Honest, reliable , helpful and genuine. That's how we would describe Nicky and her team at the Tally Ho. We knew what we did and did not want for our wedding reception and Nicky delivered. We can`t praise them highly enough for the way they looked after us. No false promises or fake smiles just a genuine desire to make our experience enjoyable. Definitely not doing it again but if we were we would do it at the Tally Ho.

New Years Eve wedding

By Jonathan and Caroline Ramsden, on 27 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Dec 2015

My wife and I were married at the Tally Ho on New Year’s Eve 2015. The team there are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble and they genuinely care about you having a great day. They took care of everything from seating, to food right the way up to fireworks. We honestly can’t recommend the Tally Ho enough, great venue and great people.

Amazing day!
Venue Service

By Michael & Anneka Holloway, on 25 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Aug 2015

We visited the tally ho and knew instantly we wanted our wedding to be held there! Nikki and the team were amazing from start to finish, we had a tight budget and Nikki made sure we made the best of our money and I never dreamed it would have looked as amazing as it did, she recommended our ice cream van and he was also so good and we had very happy guests . Nikki took all the stress out our day and the lead up to the big day. The venu is stunning and well looked after and the staff so friendly and reliable nothing too much effort for any of them. Even though it poured with rain on the day and the bouncy castle filled with water Nikki bless her went out and soaked it up with towels so the kids could still enjoy there day as much as we did, I highly recommend the hog roast.. amazing food and all my guests enjoyed it too along side the sweet cart. I loved the tally ho and would recommend this venue to any one getting married, Thank you Nikki for all your help on our special day xxxx

The best day!

By Rachel Leach, on 15 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Oct 2014

We married at The Tally Ho on 25th October 2014. Every time I drive past I get transported to that very day. The build up to the wedding was stress free all thanks to Nicky & her team. On the day the team could not do enough for us - which really helped the day run smoothly. People still comment on how amazing our wedding was & the venue!

Betts Wedding 2014
Venue Service

By Diana & David Betts, on 25 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Oct 2014

My husband an I got married at the wonderful Tally Ho Hotel. Our day was perfect, the staff were friendly the venue was amazing and the food was wonderful. Having a hotel to yourself you would think that it would cost a lot of money however, the wedding packages that they offer are very reasonable. Our family and friends were blown away by the venue. Very much recommend The Tally Ho Hotel for weddings .

Our wedding day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Malcolm, on 14 Nov 2015

Well what can I say, we visited the venue back in February and walked in and fell in love with the whole place it had the wow factor in all areas. After speaking to Nicky the wedding coordinator we knew this was the place for our special day. Nicky and the team were fantastic nothing was a problem and went that extra mile. We had a 5pm wedding and straight into party mode what was what we wanted and the whole team were very professional in every way. The Tally Ho Hotel was a great find and set in a lovely village and I would highly recommend to anyone it is worth a visit

A truly amazing and caring venue.
Venue Service

By Barry Sheehan, on 12 Sep 2015

From the moment my wife to be and I walked into the hotel during a wedding fayre we fell for the place and knew that this was the place for us. We booked up and never regretted one thing about it. Every contact with Nicky we were left reassured everything was in hand. On the day itself the reception room looked amazing and every guest was taken aback. There was no food left in plates as the food was top class. The gardens add a great back drop for the day and also great for photos with the band stand and pond. The rooms were great and the breakfast was great too. Every member of staff was excellent and the service throughout the day was fantastic. I would always recommend the Tally Ho to anyone as you will not be disappointed and will likely get more than could imagine. They know and understand how much the day means to you and offer a personal touch to add to all the happiness on he day. book now you won't be disappointed.
