Just amazing
Venue Service

By Sharon Kaur, on 20 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 09 Nov 2019

I attended my uncle's wedding on the 9th November 2019. I found the service really good, staff were very welcoming and kind especially Reel and Sonu. Hats off to the chef the food was outstanding. I highly recommend it.

we could not be happier
Venue Service

By Ritah, on 16 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Sep 2019

after spending a long time looking for a venue, we could not be happier with our choice of the Willows, we found the staff very friendly and full of ideas and always willing to work with us to achieve (our sometimes strange haha) requests. during our visit, this was the only venue where the general manager sat down with us prior to booking to explain everything in detail, he was very knowledgable and my husband really appreciated his honesty with regards to what the venue would be able to offer us, (If possible request to speak to the manager if you have any concerns at all, he is very charming and helped us a lot). from that very first day of meeting him and his team, we haven't looked back and cant thank the team enough we could not be happier x

I cannot believe that our wedding was a month ago how the time has flown. We are back from our honeymoon and back to normality. I just wanted to let you know that we had such a fantastic wedding and everyone at Willows helped us have an amazing day. All staff were so helpful and accommodating and made our day run so smoothly. I have had such glowing feedback from all my guest as they really enjoyed the day and the venue. We could not fault anything. but I wanted to say a massive thank you as our day was beyond perfect. We did leave you a little present to say thanks for all your hard work over leading up to our special day!. all our love X

Thank You

I am somebody who only usually uses reviews in order to make comment on bad service or products, but if could give this place more than top feedback we would and we would not leave a positive review unless we meant it. A big thank yo to Navraj and Rafna for all your help in the planning and a special thank you goes to the lovely Sonul for looking after us so well on the day and ensuring our caterers, decorators and everybody else were kept on track and done as we had asked throughout the day. we also want to sat a special thank you to there manager Ben who runs a very tight ship! we have come across a lot of venues who make promises in order for us to book but the charm and hnesty of the willows team was something we really appreciated. The staff are truly woderful and we never felt anything was too much trouble for them. They helped us so much from the planning all the way up to the actual day and not once did we have to chase them. the memory of our special day and the team at the willows will stay with us forever! Uzma & Mahjid

I wish I could have another wedding! x
Venue Service

By Amaanti, on 28 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Jul 2019

Absolutely stunning venue. Due to the very polite and knowledgable Willows team who gave my husband confidence we decided to pick the Willows even though it was outside of a preferred wedding venue location. Parking was really easy and there were more than enough spaces for all our travelling family. There is a beautiful Fountain right outside the venue to have a chat and a drink before going into the main room and what a space it is! Stunning chandeliers and decoration (maybe change the carpet), The service by all before and the day was impeccable. The General manager made the effort to speak to both me and my family on each of our visits prior to our wedding day as well as on the day to ask if we had everything we needed, (I think my mum is going to miss her regular chats with him haha) I Recommend this venue whole heartedly. Fantastic music and great atmosphere. I Cannot fault this place in any way at all! I just wish I was getting married again! if you have the chance book this place! x

Beautiful day with friends and family
Venue Service

By Rupesh, on 08 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2019

The Willows is a fantastic location for a wedding. We hired the entire venue, including the large balcony, thanks to the really helpful team, we were able to spend the entire day with our family and friends in an intimate setting and felt there was nothing for us to worry about. The venue is surrounded by amazing greenery which we were able to appreciate from the balcony and have taken some great wedding pictures which we can not wait to see. i just want to thank everyone who was involved!

Incredible potential
Venue Service

By Saleemah, on 16 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2019

After visiting the Willows on many occasions as a guest over the past few years, i have always felt it was a venue with a lot of potential but sadly it seemed to not live up to this, while i have seen some improvement over the past year or so, i am so happy to say that after my most recent visit it really feels like the venue has changed for the good, i have read other reviews that have mentioned a change in the manager of the venue and owners so if this is the reason i feel that it was a great decision by all! after all my visits i can finally say the beautiful surroundings are complimented by a beautiful venue and friendly team

Amazing service
Venue Service

By Samira, on 04 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 04 Jun 2019

found the willows team to be extremely knowledgeable with any questions me or my parents had, the lady who Looked after us spent a long time with us which made my father very happy and even the general manager took time and was happy to sit with us and explain in detail, we haven't had our wedding day yet, but i just wanted to say thank you to the staff for all of there time, as after visiting 5 other venues this is the first one to make us feel important and un-rushed

Second time customer
Venue Service

By Ama Thenuwara, on 13 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 20 May 2019

Me and my family have used the Willows previously in November 2017, and sadly were left with no other option than to leave a bad review about this company and recommend to all of our friends and family to avoid at all costs, we experienced rude and incompetent staff and managers as well as a dirty venue that was not what we believe we had booked! so when we were told that our niece had decided to book the venue for her own wedding, we were extremely concerned and did our best to persuade her to cancel! but she assured us that the company had been taken over and a whole new team had been put in place and that this was the wedding venue she wanted, while i was very apprehensive i know realise i could not have been more wrong! our experience this time was night and day! the staff were friendly, honest and knew exactly what to do to make my niece have an enjoyable experience from start to finish! on the day the team were calm and efficient and the venue was clean, tidy and just felt like a different place to all of us! we met the manager very briefly and while sadly i can not recall his name, from me and my family i just want to say thank you for turning this once disappointing venue into what it should have been all along! SPECIAL! we can now not recommend the willows highly enough and our son is now looking at the venue for his wedding in 2021. please pass on our thanks to the willows team and there manager.
