Wedding Reception

My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Tickled Trout, we also booked out all of the rooms. The rooms are lovely, clean and the suite was incredibly spacious and perfect for getting ready on the day with multiple bridesmaids. The reception went fantastically despite the bad weather, I had quite precise requests on decorating the venue and having provided all the decorations Mark and made the venue look fantastic! Charlie helped me with all my requests and coordinated the day fantastically. The venue is amazing, the staff are incredibly helpful and kind and we couldn’t recommend the tickled trout for a wedding reception - we had a DJ, saxophone player and an Irish fiddler which all were welcome! The food was also fantastic and couldn’t be faulted.
Thank you to Charlie, Mark and the entire team for making our day so special! We can’t wait to come back and stay/dine in the future when we celebrate our anniversaries!
