This was the perfect place for our daughters wedding. The whole ceremony was fantastic due to the great organisation from the staff, the lovely hall, canapes, music, the lot. A truly memorable afternoon!

Hello and thank you for choosing to spend your wedding day with us. We're so glad that you and your guests loved the day. (Also very lucky to get a sunny day!) Maybe you'll get to try our canapés on another occasion ;)
