We attended a Christmas party recently, a party of 18. The tickets cost £60 per head plus additional wine we spent around £1800 for what promised to be a luxury Christmas party. Sadly this proved not to be the case. We were shown to our two tables at the back of the marquee. We had preordered... read more

Just returned from a 2 day Management Meeting at Trunkwell. I can't thank Rosie enough - before the day organising everything seemed so easy and on arrival we were greeted with open fire, fresh pastries and coffee. The venue is beautiful and well suited for meetings/away days, the food was fantastic, and Rosie and her staff made us feel that... More

I was recently blown away by a birthday surprise incorporated into the organised Gastby event. I was more blown away by the professionalism, calmness and organisation of the entire evening. As this was a surprise for me obviously I had no idea, but have since heard that Helen and Rosie were most helpful in the organising of the evening and... More

I was lucky enough to be invited to a recent Christmas do at Trunkwell House. Thought the set up was good and the decor was very well set up. However, lack of staff at the bar has caused a huge queue, which didn't really go down well. Thought the drinks were very expensive too. £5 for a single shot of... More

I attended the boxing event held on the 15/11/14, as a family member of one of the fighters, I expected much more from the venue. - The food, the food lacked in flavour and quality, very very basic meals. It was very obvious there had been no pride or time taken in the preparation and cooking of our meals. For... More

I got married at Trunkwell mansion house at the start of October and it was a perfect day! Tony is a great credit to Trunkwell and I believe my day wouldn't have been anywhere near as amazing if it wasn't for him. Lots of my guests were also very impressed with him and everybody noticed all the effort and attention... More

We attended the wedding if our niece here and we could not fault it. The venue, gardens food and service were excellence. Tony was amazing and he was step ahead all day and night. The whole day and evening flowed very well. All the staff were very friendly and professional.

I went. To trunkwell for the ITS Anniversary party and we had a brilliant time. the staff were excellent, the atmosphere was brilliant and the good was fantastic. I have no idea of the cost as it was paid for by work but I'd recommend them to anyone.
