    Our wedding at Ye Olde Punchbowl Country Inn

    Thank you to all the staff at the Punchbowl for making our wedding day so special.

    The food was amazing and very tasty with plenty to go around.

    The grounds were perfect for a lovely wedding setting with great views.

    The rooms made us feel really comfortable and very pampered with an amazing bath in the bridal suite.

    We would highly recommend having your wedding here. 5??????????

    Wedding ceremony and reception

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception held here on the August bank holiday. We could not fault the amazing team at the punchbowl one bit. From the restaurant staff, to the events team, to the chefs - the day was perfect and we can not thank you all enough. We stayed in the rooms the night before and the night after, they were impeccable. The food has been complimented by every guest and was absolutely amazing. The gardens, the outdoor bar, the gazebo... Everything was perfect and the team that helped on the day made everything so easy for us.

    Thank you so much for our beautiful day. No doubt you'll see us and most of our guests again for food!

    My wedding day

    Had our wedding reception here on the 27th July. Chris made the whole process really easy from booking two years ago to the big day itself. The room was set up perfectly for us and everything ran smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We had many guests saying how they've never had food as good as that at a wedding. Having eaten here several times before we were impressed that the starters and desserts were the same size portions as they would be normally, so many venues make them much smaller for weddings. We'd like to thank Chris and the team again for making our day so special.

    Daughters wedding

    We just want to thank all of the staff at the Punchbowl for making the marriage of our daughter, Steph Thomas to Dean Haden on Saturday 27th July, a truly amazing day, despite the rain after weeks of sunshine!
    The food was wonderful, as always, and the staff were very helpful with preparations in the run up to the special day. The gardens made a wondefrul backdrop to some very special photos. You very kindly plated up two meals for us to take to my parents, who were sadly, unable to attand, and we'll do our best to return them to you in the coming weeks.
    Thank you

    Wedding Reception at Ye Olde Punchbowl Inn

    We had our wedding reception here after searching for somewhere that could cater for a large amount of people for a sit down meal, the Punchbowl was the only place that could do it. We were not worried though because we had been here many times before and love the food. It went very smoothly, the staff could not have been more attentive. Everybody commented on how lovely the food was. We had booked a room to stay in which was fabulous and the breakfast next morning was just what was needed after the night before! I can thoroughly recommend this place to anybody looking for a wedding venue, they have recently started to hold the ceremonies there too in the wonderful grounds! It really is the full package! Thank you for the best evening!

    My wedding

    If I could give the punchbowl more than 5 stars I really would! What started off as just popping in for Sunday lunch over a year ago, resulted in us having the most magical wedding day at the punchbowl last week! We’ve made multiple trips in between and have never had any issues with food or customer service!

    Adam, Charlotte, Chris and the team helped and supported us to have the perfect wedding day. Ours was the first ceremony they had had indoors due to weather and although they were thrown a couple of curve balls they were dealt with by the team with total professionalism and my husband and I were totally unaware!

    The complete package was 100% perfect... facilities, bedrooms, food, gardens and staff... AMAZING X

    We can never thank you enough xxx
