Exceeded our expectations!
We had the most amazing wedding at The White Swan and can’t recommend it enough.Sent on 31/03/2019
Joe and her team were fantastic from the start, showing us around and being incredibly flexible so we could create a wedding suited just for us.
The White Swan are experts when it comes to weddings, providing us with all information needed before we even knew we needed it!
We were full of confidence that our wedding was in great hands. Many of the suppliers/companies we chose to use for our wedding were already familiar with the venue which was very reassuring.
On the day Joe went out of her way to ensure the day went smoothly and we were incredibly pleased with her attention to detail.
The rooms were made available for our guests only which made booking easy.
We loved the fact that we could spill out into the pub space providing us with a quiet area for our guests when needed.
Joe took care of everything leaving our family members able to enjoy the day.
Thank you so much! It was a perfect day!

Our perfect day
We fell in love with The White Swan Hotel as soon as we walked in. We loved the cosy feel of the pub, and that we could have the whole wedding day there, and guests could stay too.Sent on 27/02/2019
Joe and her team were super helpful from start to finish, and were very quick to respond to any questions I had along the way.
The food was delicious - even our fussiest guests enjoyed their meal!
In the evening we had a band playing, and the turnaround to get them set up was very smooth. What we liked most is that our guests could go and sit in the bar area if the evening entertainment got too much for them, or just wanted some quiet space for a while (also great for me and my husband when we wanted to have a little breathing space during the day!).
The hotel rooms were spotless, very clean and tidy. The only couple of niggles we had was that the bridal suite was the furthest room away, and the smallest room, and check in time clashed with our ceremony start time. Because of this a lot of the guests disappeared to their rooms after the ceremony, and missed out on some photo opportunities.
Other than that, our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and all our guests commented on how nice the venue and the day was. We will definitely be back for a coffee and dinner soon!

From the first visit to the White Swan and meeting Joe the wedding co-ordinator we found everyone very friendly and helpful. No matter how many questions we asked we were always put at ease.Sent on 25/02/2019
The food and location were both fabulous. All our guests commented on how lovely the food was , even the hard to please vegan and vegetarians. so no one went home hungry. We did our own room/table decorations, but had a beautiful backdrop from Tinsel Twist to complete the effect.
The room looked magical.
Thankyou everyone at The White Swan for making it a day to remember.
