Our special place

By Angela and Mike, on 20 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2019

Hi Jordan, We have just boarded the plane for our honeymoon and not had a minute since Saturday! Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for an overall perfect day on Saturday. We had a day beyond our expectations. Your Director introduced himself whilst we were packing away our decorations on Sunday morning and I told him what an asset you are to the Woodman Inn. Thank you again for the hard work of you and the team in making our day do special. The compliments we have received from our guests on the day and after regarding the venue, quality of food, confirmed we made the right choice for our wedding reception. We will of course be writing a positive review on the website and can’t wait to continue to come to the woodman inn as our special place. Many thanks Angela and Mike xx

Attended a wedding reception yesterday we were very impressed and so we're other guests. The wedding reception was held upstairs . Well organised, excellent staff. Sit down meal was fab and so too the service. The evening chips and butties were spot on. A number of family were staying in the accommodation. Exceptionally busy downstairs in the bar area. Some were outside. Plenty of parking and a large outside area across the road with tables for warm summer evenings.. What more can I say....

Incredible service & food throughout

Hi Jordan, Chloe & the team, Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special for us both. Our day was incredible, the food was absolutely delicious everyone loved their food. We would like to say all the staff were so helpful and lovely, all our guests commented how wonderful they all were. We had some staff putting my flowers in water so they wouldn’t wilt, Chloe helping with my dress and helping carry things back to our room.. and even bring bottles of water to our room for us! They really did go above and beyond to make everything perfect. Please can you pass our thanks on to all of them, they really made our day run smoothly and looked after our guests so well. We had so much fun at the party in the evening, all our guests have said they’ve not been to a party like it in ages, so thank you so much!! Richard was amazing, he truly is the best DJ I’ve ever seen at a party! You made us both feel incredibly special on our wedding day, so we truly can’t thank you enough for all the hard work and planning that you all did. We can’t thank you again enough, but we will definitely be recommending people to have their wedding at the Woodman! We will come back and see you all soon! Love, Maeghan & William

Thank you

We both would like to say a big thank you to you Jordan, Elinor, Chloe and all the staff, for making our wedding day such a fabulous event for us and all our family and friends. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves and commented on the great service, quality of the food and the happy smiley staff. Nobody left hungry and you are a natural Master of Ceremonies ! The room was just right for the size of our party and the flexibility shown for letting us set up was much appreciated. The DJ was great ( my knees still ache from Dad dancing ! ) and all the kids had a wonderful time. The bridal suite was lovely , although the shower did leak onto the bed downstairs. A member of staff came and was made aware but we decided to stay in the room. Of course, that's out of your control so we won't let that effect our experience. We would give you 10 out of 10 and recommend friends - quite a few are unmarried ! - to have their celebrations at The Woodman. Thanks again to you all for making our day extra special and one we will never forget. Kind Regards Jo and Nick

You guys are amazing!!!

Hi Chloe Oh my word did we have a fabulous night ! Everyone said the food and service was great. Lawrence,Jordan and the lovely young girl - sorry didn’t get her name - were all professional and accommodating, nothing at all was any trouble no matter what we requested. Please pass on my thanks to everyone concerned for such a fabulous night and I have already had a couple of friends asking about the experience which I have fully recommended. I will also put a fantastic review on trip advisor too. Thanks again to everyone Involved Jeanette x

Best day ever!!!
Venue Service

By Jo and Danielle Sigley-Kane, on 24 May 2019Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2019

We can’t speak highly enough of both the venue and the amazing staff who work there. We had the ceremony upstairs and the reception in the beautiful orangery and glass-fronted marquee across the road (Thunderbridge Gardens) and were able to have our pictures taken outside with the river and trees in the background. The whole setting made our day absolutely amazing, but it was the staff who gave us the perfect day. From the moment we booked our wedding until the end of the actual day the wedding planners (Chloe and Jordan) were so friendly, enthusiastic, helpful and accommodating and made everything so easy (and less stressful!) for us. The communication was excellent and they were always available to help with any of our questions. On the day, all of the other staff were also very friendly, helpful and professional (especially Rachel the head housekeeper!). The Woodman will always have a special place in our hearts.

You are all just brilliant!

We had an amazing day, we couldn't of asked for the day to of gone any better or smoother. The food was bloody amazing, all guest and us enjoyed every bite. Everyone was asking where do they get chicken breast that big!!! Haha. My wedding dress did not stop me from eating every bite on my plate. The service we had from start to finish was brilliant and stress free. Luckily my sister could amend the seating plan for us, with the mix up on the table plan, so it was sorted quickly. After that it was back to stress free...just how we like it ??. Your venue is beautiful and perfect for what we wanted for our day. Having the arrival drinks over the road was a lovely touch, and having everyone turn up very early from the church didn't phase you. Your all just brilliant! Jamie has been asked by friends already if The Woodman is recommended and the answer was yes. Look out for Ben Howatt! Thank you so much for helping us have a perfect wedding day. It will be a day we never forget. Mr and Mrs Knowles ha!

It was more than perfect and we were a million% impressed with everything you all did, Chloe was an absolute star and her support leading up to the wedding and in particular on the day was so lovely.

We all love love loved it ! Perfect venue which gives you a hug from the moment you arrive Thank you soooooo much from the Green-Woods :)
