Astonishing

From the first visit on viewing the venue we fell in love with it. The staff were so professional and made it so easy to arrange the perfect wedding day we had. All members of staff were fantastic. We wouldnt change a single thing about the day. And I've even said I would love to do it all over again. The food was beautiful and we would highly recommend it to anyone. They took control of everything to give us a stress free day. A beautiful location with wonderful surroundings.

Perfect Wedding Day

We had the most perfect wedding day and it was such a dream that we couldn’t of asked for anything better. From the very first viewing we fell in love with the venue with the beautiful grounds to the rustic feel of the main room upstairs with high beams and fairy lights. Everything looked so pretty.
Natalie was so great from start to finish and was happy to help with any questions I had from the beginning. Her advice and taking full control was fantastic. Lee was also great and ran our wedding on the day and everything just flowed like it should. We truly couldn’t be happier.
The food was gorgeous and even our guests couldn’t say anything wrong about it.
Thank you so much.

Lovely day but a few concerns

We had a lovely wedding day back in November. Natalie, we could not fault, she was great throughout and couldn’t do enough for us. The same could be said for the two men helping throughout the day. They were also lovely. The food for the wedding breakfast was lovely and of a high quality.

The issues I have are to do with the volume of food for the buffet given the cost and the cost of the rooms.

We paid for 100 guests for the evening buffet at approx £15 per head. We had one tables worth of food which didn’t even equate to a sandwich per person. Luckily most people from the day were full but the table was pretty sparse given the cost. I can’t knock the quality because those who had some said it was lovely but the amount for the cost was poor. I presented a photo to Thornbury but this apparently isn’t enough. So all I would advise is to monitor this.

In addition, we were told the rooms at the lodge had a “special wedding rate” of £115 per night. This did not include breakfast. When one guest decided to stay on the day, they charged her £85 for the room. When I raised this with Thornbury they said it fluctuates throughout the year and depends on how in advance you book . This isn’t true as I looked on the website and rooms are sold at a rough price of £85 per night throughout the whole year. Personally, save yourself and your guests some pennies and just book the rooms through their website. Don’t fall for the “special” rate as I’m not sure what was special about it given guests didn’t even get a breakfast at that cost. When I raised this with Thornbury they have dodged each opportunity to discuss this part.

I probably also wouldn’t waste your time on the complimentary afternoon tea. It isn’t what you would expect and consists of a couple of sandwiches, a few crisps and a millionaires shortbread and rocky road cut up from their cafe/bar display. If you’re travelling more than 20 mins I probably wouldn’t bother.

We had 100 guests for the night and it was a bit squashed in the room upstairs with a couple of no shows. Be mindful of their max capacity of 120. There really isn’t enough room for that and left a lot of our guests stood up at the back without the option to sit down.

Overall we had a lovely wedding, and would recommend it overall as a venue but just be mindful of asking about these couple of things to ensure you’re happy and to be on top of it.

Leanne and Joe Gardiner

The first time we went to visit Thornbury Golf centre we fell in love with the venue, we were made to feel very welcome by Natalie and Nicola and felt really relaxed, the venue felt so right for the wedding that we had pictured for ourselves. From the wooden beams to the amazing views and the intimate feeling that we wanted our day to be. We would highly recommend this venue.
For our wedding day, we chose the top package which was the 'Excellence' and it was worth every penny. Everything that was included within our package was brilliant and was everything we had ever wanted. Our wedding took place on 12/11/2022 and after a long 2 years of planning and organising Natalie our wedding planner made sure all the team, especially Lee and Craig, that everything was organised effectively so the day ran smoothly.
The food was amazing, all our guests commented on how much they loved it and how beautiful the venue looked, we can't thank Thornbury enough for our amazing wedding day, which we will treasure forever.

Best wishes
Leanne and Joe

Amazing wedding venue & fantastic staff

We were given a warm welcome right from the start. We mainly dealt with Natalie who did an amazing job. She gave us all the information we needed (and more) and was very accommodating throughout, especially with some last minute changes before the day itself. Thanks to the whole team and Thornbury Golf Centre, but an even bigger one to Natalie!

Excellent Venue, Staff very Helpful

Wonderful views, great photo places, food was lovely, hot and tasty, staff couldn’t do enough for us, guided through the whole day, you have a separate area away from golfers which makes you feel special, just simply a fantastic place and can’t recommend enough, brilliant 😀

Absolutely Amazing

Well what can I say from day 1 of us looking round the venue Nicola was absolutely amazing and welcoming. When ever we had a question Nicola or Natalie were always there at the end of the phone to help. Fast forward to the wedding day it was absolutely perfect we couldn’t have asked for a better day. All the staff were fantastic and couldn’t do enough for us and our guests. How I imagined the wedding day, Thornbury exceed it by far. I’m so glad we chose to get married at Thornbury. The staff and everyone that helped to make our wedding so special deserve recognition for going above and beyond. I would 100% recommend Thornbury Golf Club to anyone who is considering getting married here.

30th July 2021

Had our wedding at Thornbury Golf Centre 30th July 2021 after having it postponed a year. During that time we did deal with quite a few people but towards the lead up Nicola and Natalie were amazing. Our day really was perfect from start to finish everything ran smoothly and stress free. The room was decorated beautifully and the food was amazing. The views are lovely and some amazing places to have photos taking. To be able to enjoy our night on the dance floor with no restrictions was the best part. For the kind of wedding we wanted this was perfect and I’m glad we chose this as our venue and I would chose it again if I had too!
A special thanks to Nicola for all of her help and reassurance and calming my nerves on the morning. Oh and pinning my dads button hole on as we had no clue how haha!

Highly Reccomend this venue for a Wedding

My daughters Wedding was held here on Saturday a day after heavy snowfall. The team did a great job despite the weather from the Groundsmen who managed to clear the snow from the long drive approaching the venue hours after we arrived Friday afternoon, to the Wedding Planner Charlotte who was cheerfully efficient and approachable, to the hard working chef and his team who produced a wonderful wedding breakfast and buffet for 100 people in the evening. would highly recommend this venue for a wedding. Guests can also stay in the nearby lodge for b&b before and after the wedding , and again the breakfast was superb.

Totally Recommend as an amazing venue!

Got married here last month- totally recommend as an amazing venue! Can’t praise Charlotte enough, she was amazing from the first day we met her till our special day. Nothing was ever too much and she helped in so many ways. All the staff were fab and the day went so smoothly with all their help. Lovely venue with fab opportunities for photos. We loved the beams and fairy lights in the room and that it was all contained mainly to 1 room so everyone was together. An amazing day! Thank you so much For making it perfect. I don’t often leave reviews but had to for this place and staff! Can’t recommend it enough.

Everything was perfect!

We held our wedding reception and evening celebration here on the 30th June. Everything was perfect! Charlotte in particular was amazing, great at staying in contact, nothing was too much trouble and would always put herself out to make sure we had the perfect day. The day ran without any problems, well of there were any we didn't know about them, and everyone commented on how lovely the food and evening buffet was. A shout out to the barman too who was fantastic. I honestly cannot fault them and if you are thinking of using Thornbury Golf Club as a venue then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
