Wedding 2015 - April

My son and daughter in law had their wedding here and I have to say it was the most wonderful day. Tony could not do enough for the bride and groom and friends and family. The food was amazing and there was no complaints from anyone. It was nice to stay overnight too and have continental breakfast... read 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

My partner and I had our wedding reception here on 25th April 2015. It was the most amazing day of our lives. Tony was absolutely amazing!! We were made to feel like royalty from the moment we arrived. Honestly he had every single detail covered, we always had a drink in hand and wanted for nothing. It would have not... More

A works Christmas party that turned out to be an expensive & horrible experience. The food was dreadful, I ended being sick all through the night. I’ve heard recently that their food hygiene rating was very low which didn’t surprise me when other staff members were also ill. Their drinks are extortionate & entertainment amateurish. Avoid.

Me and my new partner recently attended our second Wedding at Trunkwell House and it was even better than the last. The marquee has been updated with fantastic mood lighting which made the whole room glow pink, it was fantastic and a great addition to the party atmosphere.......The food again was delicious and great portion sizes. We definitely didn't go... More

We booked our Christmas party here, and we had problem after problem. The food was shocking, staff appalling, and worst of all, we complained to customer services over two months ago and still waiting for the owner to respond.

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 wine to go on... 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
