The BEST day of our lives!

We got married at The Woodman Inn on 10.11.2023 and it was simply amazing! We booked our wedding nearly two years prior and the team were so supportive from the moment we booked it (especially Kieran) and still are now nearly a month after our wedding day! I never felt like I sent too many emails or any question was too much. We asked for special arrangements for some of our guests and nothing was too much and Kieran offered great advice.

Kieran, Jordan, Ben and the whole team went above and beyond to make sure our day was more than perfect! All our guests have said how much they loved the day, loved their stay in the gorgeous rooms and were so complementary of the staff, the food, the venue and how the day went and trust me there some harsh critics there. The staff were so friendly, welcoming and accommodating to all the guests. Our supplier also were so complimentary of you and the team and together you all made the day.

Since the wedding everybody has asked me, 'how did it go? did everything go to plan' and I can honestly say everything went to plan and I cannot fault a single thing. Our wedding day was simply amazing and that is down to the team at the Woodman - I will always recommend the Woodman Inn and it will always have a special place in my heart!

My advice to any bride and groom - visit The Woodman Inn, book a view and honestly, if you're looking for a gorgeous, picturesque venue with amazing staff and gorgeous food - The Woodman is the venue for you!

Perfection: A Masterclass in True Hospitality

Kieran and the team at The Woodman Inn ensured that our wedding day was, indeed, the perfection people talk about. People want the personal touch and the no-worries day, and the food to be amazing, and no one to be bored, and everyone to be happy. They do it all, and more.
Two years ago, we were shown around by Jordan and knew it was the one. A brightly lit pub opens up into a warren of superbly decorated rooms - a canvas for a relaxed, cosy wedding.
However, it cannot be expressed more strongly how, without the staff, the building would be soulless. It is them that make it harmonious. Despite our needs and requests, we didn't meet a disgruntled face, not a complaint, not a cutting line - they know that the team they have and the resources they have created are at the forefront of hospitality in 2023: a difficult accomplishment in the currently climate.
The food - the best our guests had ever had at a wedding. The service - the best our guests had ever had at a wedding (and believe us, they told us!). The lack of judgement and complete professionalism - noticeable and humbling. We came as clients and left as friends.
Kieran - the Weddings Manager - you were the antidote to our stress and nerves. Ben - you received a million compliments about your candour and work ethic. Jordan - you lead a team of wonderful people who must get up every morning and be proud to be part of a forward thinking, hospitable team with a true desire to pursue the best.
And if you want the best, book The Woodman for your wedding. Thank you all.

The best in the business 🤍

Where do I even start with how fantastic this place is? I visited the Woodman Inn at the back end of last year when searching for a wedding venue. We were looking for somewhere that looked the part, of course, but the main thing was that we wanted a warm and relaxing atmosphere.

I met Kieran at the first meeting (who is absolutely wonderful, might I add) and I just LOVED the place. We decided to go back a few days later for the wedding open day, and after seeing it all set up, we booked there and then. We went for dinner and an overnight stay a few months before our wedding for my partners birthday, and it was so lovely. All of the staff were so friendly and welcoming, and the food was divine.

The run up to the wedding.. I could not have asked for more, honestly. Kieran, Jordan and Ben were absolute saviours. So helpful, offered advice, checked in with us regularly, always available to speak to one of them. And then came the day..

IT WAS INCREDIBLE!!!! The chef worked with us to create a Mediterranean style dinner, it was amazing! And the sticky toffee pudding is, hands down, the best on the planet. We danced and drank the night away with our loved ones and it was everything we wished for. My new husband said the breakfast was also amazing, I unfortunately can't comment on this due to the massive hangover that prevented me from eating it 🤣, but it looked delicious.

I honestly believe the team at this place are the best in the business, every single one of them.

The Woodman Inn will forever hold a special place in our hearts and we can't wait to return.

Thank you for everything.

The best day!

The first and only wedding venue we visited was the Woodman Inn. We knew as soon as we got there that it was THE ONE. The venue itself and the surroundings are beautiful and give off the relaxed vibe that we wanted for our special day.

We got married on 22/09/23 in the garden room and the day couldn’t have been better! Our guests absolutely loved the venue and we received so many lovely comments about the staff and the food.

From start to finish, the whole team were so lovely, especially Kieran, who was extremely helpful and accommodating! We chose to take a super relaxed approach to our wedding planning and Kieran made that possible.

Thank you so much for making our day so special!

The perfect experience

Our whole experience at the Woodman was incredible from start to finish. We knew this was the place for us the first time we visited… the staff were both welcoming and friendly, and we were wowed by how beautiful and intimate the venue was. The whole planning process was seamless and wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Kieran, who was so accommodating and always on hand to answer any questions. The day itself was perfect, we were married within the venue’s beautiful gardens and celebrated the rest of our day in the country room. The food was a particular highlight, with guests mentioning how much they enjoyed their meals and that it was the best wedding meal they had - we went for the salmon and can say it was the best salmon we’ve had. All in all, we couldn’t recommend this place enough. The venue, the food, the value for money and most of all the team, who made our wedding day the most incredible day of our lives!

Best day ever!!!

We got married in June 2023 and had the best day ever at the Woodman Inn! Jordan, Kieran and the team were so professional and the day ran so smoothly - we didn’t have to worry about anything! They were really flexible with our ideas, and helped make the day personal to us. We received so many compliments about the food, the staff and the DJ. The setting was perfect for our hot sunny day and we chose the venue knowing it would be great in the rain as well. It was like we were in another world. Can’t recommend the team and the Woodman Inn enough!!

Kieran and the team handcrafted and delivered our perfect day. The level of service was outstanding, the food was exceptional and the team couldn't do enough for us. From beginning to end, Kieran was on hand to take the stress of the big day away and nothing was too much trouble! Couldn't recommend this place enough for an experience to remember!

Amazing Stress Free Wedding - Book here now

Wonderful Venue, Amazing food, lovely accomodation and setting for your special day.
Most important feedback we could give to any couple trying to decide if this venue is for you would be the staff here will make your day. Every member of staff makes you feel like the most important couple in the world. Everything is taken care of, true professionals, excellent customer service and attention to detail. Everything we asked for was accommodated and even more that we didn't ask for but came as standard (very high standard).
The whole experience from first visit to leaving the morning after our wonderful wedding day was faultless. I would not hesitate to recommend the Woodman and their wonderful team.

Beautiful venue, 5* star food, organised and proffesional

We had the best day on our wedding day, it was made so easy to plan and organise our big day, commuincation between us and the woodman inn was really good and we always recieved quick responses to any queries we had, they helped to make sure we knew what we needed to organise beforehand and made it easy for us to do so, the food was amazing they catered to various allergens and me being coeliac myself felt so reassured that they knew about my allergen and ended up with pretty much the same food as the rest of the guests which made the meal so enjoyable and took a stress out of my day, the venue looked amazing and the day all ran smoothly we can't thank all the staff enough.

The most amazing wedding venue!!!

We had the most amazing wedding on Bonfire Night, we can't thank the guys are The Woodman Inn enough for all their help, hard work and absolutely fantastic service. We've had so many compliments of how amazing the food & service was from all of our guests.
We booked our wedding over 2 years ago, we fell in love with The Woodman straight away and the service and ideas the guys had just made us even more excited!
The build up was amazing and they couldn't have done anymore for us, I arranged a surprise saxophone player for my husband and they were so good at making sure it was a secret and nothing slipped!
We stayed at The Woodman for the full weekend of our wedding and the whole team could not have done anymore for us or our wedding party. The hotel rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is fantastic!!!
We can't wait to go back for some more amazing hospitality, we would not have chosen to get married anywhere else, the best day ever!!!!!
Thank you guys so much, you really are the best!
