The Perfect Countryside Wedding

We booked The White Horse for our wedding reception initially because we wanted a pub with accommodation. We have a young child so it was important we could put him to bed on site and we always wanted a simple and relaxed pub for after the formalities of the ceremony.

I remember the first day setting foot in The White Horse for an initial look around and I was completely taken aback. It was perfect. The look and feel of the pub was just what we wanted and it lent itself so nicely for our autumnal wedding in the countryside, plus we barely needed to touch it with decorations.

The food is fantastic, the rooms are all beautiful, and the staff are nothing short of superheroes.

We had canapès and Prosecco on arrival (the chicken satay was a firm favourite). We didn’t want a sit down meal so opted for bowl food served wherever you were and it worked just how we wanted it to. All of our guests were very complimentary of the food and they raved about the service.

We can’t thank Julie, Sarah and the rest of the team at The White Horse enough for making our day so perfect, and we highly recommend The White Horse as a venue. (We even got a cute card and pressie to congratulate us.)

We will definitely be back for anniversaries and any other excuses we can make. (We might even try and sneak into someone else’s wedding just to experience it all again!)
