Wonderful wedding day.

We had our wedding here at the end of May. We were helped all the way through with the organization and planning and the day went without a hitch. The food was lovely and many of our guests commented on it. All the staff were friendly and efficient and our thanks go to Lauren for all her help with... read more

We attended a wedding in June at this venue and it was a great event; from start to finish the wedding ran smoothly and the hotel helped to ensure it was as special a day as the bride and groom hoped for. The food was excellent (good quality ingredients and well prepared) and we heard nothing but compliments from the... More

My husband, daughter and I visited here yesterday to celebrate our dear friends Steph and Gary's nuptials. It is a lovely Victorian house although the wedding reception was actually outside in one of two marquees. The gardens were pretty. Staff efficient. Food tasty. Entertainment good. A super day - if you're planning to marry in the Reading area I would... More

I've just had my prom at this venue, I know its just prom but gosh. The staff were so unbelievably rude and unfriendly, I felt like I was being constantly being confined to the grotty tent it was hosted in. Which did not even have enough seats for the whole party to sit down at, so about 20 people had... More

I attended Trunkwell house on the 9th of May for my sisters wedding, and I have to say, it was the best wedding I have been too. The entire day ran absolutely perfectly and it was enjoyable throughout. The food was exceptional and very quickly served. She had over 100 guests and nothing was too much trouble. We have had...

I have recently visited Trunkwell House with my colleagues for a work conference followed by an evening dinner dance. The staff from the off were amazing and helped with my every need when ever it was I called or emailed. The information given to Lauren and Rosie was followed through to our meeting and dinner dance and Tony was outstanding... More

Thank God it wasn't my money! Nice welcome. Drinks were being served on the lawn on arrival. 'Canapes' consisted of damp ready salted cheap crisps, damp bread sticks and cheap olives. When it started to rain everyone was squashed under the canopy and into one room inside with a bar. Those of us who tried to enter the marquee where... More

Hi Sazza, many thanks for your review. We were very concerned when reading your comments and have since received an email from the bride and groom saying it was the 'perfect day' and they will shortly be uploading their own 5* review. Thank you More

I've visited Trunkwell on a number of occasions now and always enjoyed my visits. I have recently attended a Wedding and I can only say great things. The grounds were beautifully kept and the marquee looked stunning. Our food was delicious and all of my friends enjoyed themselves. They had singing waiters at the wedding and they was BRILLIANT and... More

Like a graceful swan that is furiously paddling beneath the surface, Tony and his team at Trunkwell house pulled off the perfect wedding on Friday. Trunkwell House is a beautiful Victorian house in Beech Hill, a beautiful village in the countryside south of Reading. It has retained its original features and fittings, which gives it a charming and welcoming atmosphere.... More

We recently attended the wedding of some close friends here. What a delightful venue for a private intimate wedding. As the wedding service and breakfast was for less than 50 people the whole event was held in the house as the marquee wasn't required and it couldn't have been more perfect. There was still plenty of room when the evening... More
