Special night out with friends just after Christmas....Decent 3 course meal with entertainment and Dodgem cars for a good laugh. Yes it's a bit expensive but where isn't for a Christmas or New Years "do". It's all under canvas so was a little worried it would be chilly but I shouldn't have worried, didn't feel cold all night even in... More

A great themed night with plenty of action, dancers, acrobats, fire eaters and a really good band. A disco to see the night out. Fun on the dodgers an added bonus. The food was fantastic and hot considering there were probably about 200 guests. Tables full of cheese and biscuits, tea and coffee after a 3 course meal too. Would... More

Went to a Christmas party (themed as "Orient Express") which apparently is a few cardboard windows stuck on the canvas to look like windows, otherwise a standard corporate entertainment package (trapeze artists, magician, rip-off photographer and dodgems). Had a great time except the food wasn't great - mainly because I found a live large green caterpillar crawling round my salad... More

A great place for a function. Our school held a prom there for the year 11 students. They all had a good time and will have reat memories of their leaving "do"

Attended a wedding at Trunkwell House, its well connected to the A33 and M4 with ample parking for all. Everything ran smoothly like clockwork there seemed to be no hitches. The food was surprisingly good for one of these functions where lots are being catered for at once. The reception was held in a large semi permanent marquee with a... More

I felt compelled to write this review having read others slating this venue. We took 20 members of staff and their partners here for our Xmas do on December 23rd and as a company of event planners we are extremely tough customers to impress! Firstly the venue decor was fantastic, to theme a marquee to a high standard is a... More

WOW what a wonderful experience. I have had the pleasure of attending twice and each time I had a brilliant time, as did the guests I attended with. The whole theme was amazing with stilt walkers, trapeze artists swinging across the dance floor, bumper cars and casino table (proceeds of these going to chariy, nice touch!!) Staff were very helpful... More

The Trunkwell House is located slightly outside reading within very nice country surrounding. This is an ideal place for summer gathering. They have two very large marquees at the back which are ideal for wedding reception, Christmas market or community gathering/festival. The main building is a lovely mansion building which has a nice bar & restaurant. During last November we... More

As with any Christmas party night at any establishment one goes with an open mind!!! In previous years I have attended joiner party nights which I have enjoyed for what they are. They have been run by” hotel brands” which prove to be good value for money, have enjoyable food, prompt bar service and space to breathe! For me, in... More

Corporate event and although I don't expect great things when feeding so many people at one time, the 40 minute wait between starters and main course was far too long. The room was extremely cold where I was sitting, so much so that I sat with my coat on; the food was bland, bland, bland - starters absolutely tasteless (and... More
