By Nicola & Tom Salt, on 07 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2017

I would just like to say on behalf of Tom and Myself a massive thank-you for everything you have done for us, not only for the day itself but you have been amazing from start to finish. You were so helpful leading up to the day and nothing was ever too much. You catered for all our needs and met all of our demands (well mine ha ha). We had the most perfect day. The venue looked perfect, the food was outstanding, service was spectacular and you made it so enjoyable and relaxed. We really cant thank you enough. I just wish we could do it all again. It was absolutely incredible and we enjoyed every single moment. I have heard from the wedding party the Buffet was a brilliant touch and comments to the chef as they said it was Delicious. We will definitely be recommending yourselves and the upper house and will sure to visit again soon

We had an absolutely amazing day at the upper house, I really couldn't fault anything! Thank you so much to you and your team for making it so special... all of our guests commented on what a great venue it is, the wedding breakfast and hog roast were both delicious! Anyone who stayed overnight were also really impressed with the rooms. I can't thank you enough for answering all of our questions and advice when booking our wedding with you, I would definitely recommend to other couples! Thank you again, I'm sure we'll be back in the future!

I got married in May 2005 and had a wonderful day at The Upper House. I would recommend anyone to go and take a look around at the setting, the venues etc. The setting is gorgeous, food excellent and the staff can''t do enough for you. If i could do it all again I would. It was a perfect day and would highly recommend it to everyone

Venue Service

By Claire Jarrett, on 12 Jul 2004

I got married in august 2001 here and everything about it was fantastic! The service in the day to the evening reception. Food was brilliant and the atmosphere was so relaxed. The staff at The Upper House could not do enough to help. The only gripe that i do have is that they threw away the left over wedding cake. Oh yeah and the day was not long enough!
