    Stacey & Deans Wedding
    As the Father of the Bride, I just need to say a massive thanks you to you and your highly professional on behalf of my wife & myself and my daughter Stacey and my new son-in-law Dean for providing a wonderful and scenic venue and it was such an enjoyable and memorable day for all our guests at your perfect place. After 2 cancellations due to lockdowns etc the day finally arrived and despite all the problems you faced during lockdowns you never gave us any doubt that we had made the correct choice in choosing High Rocks as the wedding venue and even despite many emails during the long build up and the changes we were asking right up to the last couple of days, you never waivered in making sure you accommodated us and our requests, I'm sorry we were such a headache but these times means that late problems do occur and you certainly went that extra mile for us as a family. Your staff were friendly, polite and so helpful and all looked smartly dressed, they covered every aspects and attention to detail was second to none, which resulted in a very well planned day and a very special experience for Stacey and Dean and all their guests, whether day time or evening. We have had so many compliments on the wedding breakfast and the evening spread that you provided, all the dishes were delicious, well presented and of great portions, how you managed to get the main course served to 120 guests at the same time and piping hot amazed everyone and compliments were being received all the time. We were also very impressed by your toastmaster Martin, he efficiently carried out his role perfectly and despite the late arrival of the bridesmaids he kept us all at ease with his timings throughout the day and made sure of the celebrations went perfect, thanks Martin. The resident DJ provided 1st class evening entertainment and helped surprise the groom with a first dance he was not expecting, it amused everyone, the dance floor was packed all night. A special big thanks to you Giuseppe and Maggie together with Stuart for making the bride and grooms special day so memorable. Once again we would like to extend our sincere appreciation for the excellent service you provided and would definitely not hesitate in recommending High Rocks Wedding Venue in the future for anyone looking for a perfect wedding venue.

    Wedding at high rocks
    Absolutely beautiful day for my daughter’s wedding. Staff were fantastic very attentive, food was piping hot and fresh and delicious. So well organised, Martin was in charge of the wedding party making sure everyone was in the right place at the right time and he did very well considering we were a handful 😂 . Covid postponed the wedding twice and all involved were very professional and trying hard to get new dates for us . I would definitely recommend and thank you to all involved for making my daughter and my new son in laws day so special. There’s also a mini bus service to make sure everyone gets back to their hotels safely

    Best wedding ever!
    On 20th august 2021 we had our wedding at the High Rocks in Tunbridge Wells. It was absolutely perfect! The staff could not do enough, the organisation of the day was faultless, the food was delicious and the venue itself and the rocks were obviously stunning. Everyone who attended said it was the best wedding ever! We honestly could not be more happy with the High Rocks and also how accommodating they have been after this became our 4th wedding date after 3 cancellations due to the pandemic. Our first date was in June 2020 and we then moved this a whole year to June 2021, then July 2021 and finally in august 2021, we did it! We had 88 guests in total including us 4 (two children). Thank you so much High Rocks and a special mention to Maggie who was wonderful throughout!

Where do we even begin? This was the most perfect wedding. Everything was exactly how we pictured it and more. Maggie, Giuseppe and all of their staff worked incredibly hard in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself to ensue that this would be the most magical experience possible and they did not disappoint. Everything from the magnificent venue, to the delicious food, to the outstanding service was nothing short of amazing. My wife and I waited over 2 years for our special day and this did not disappoint. High Rocks is by the far the best place you could ever hope to get married and I would recommend this wonderful establishment to anyone looking to tie the knot. From the bottom of our hearts thank you so very much for a day we will never forget

We got married on 4th January 2020, and what can I say?? The venue, scenery staff and food were just perfect! We love this place!

High Rocks was the first venue we visited and we instantly knew we wanted to get married there. When we had our pre wedding meeting we knew we had made the right choice

We had the presidents suite for both the ceremony and reception and it is beautiful, especially the lights in the ceiling and Christmas trees. Maggie and Giuseppe very kindly let us come in on the evening prior to the wedding to decorate, we were there 2 hours and the staff were so helpful but also let us do what we needed to. They even bought our thirsty helpers refreshments!

Our wedding day was amazing. Not least because of the stunning scenery of the rocks, we were so lucky with the weather and some of the photos we have had back are breathtaking.

The food was brilliant - every single persons food was hot which is such an achievement with nearly 80 guests. The portions are actually huge and we even got offered seconds. The evening buffet also went down a treat, sadly I didn’t get to each much being the bride but feedback was superb.

Everything ran so smoothly and we honestly could not fault it. The minibus and taxi are the end of the night is so thoughtful and a godsend.

If you are thinking about booking high rocks please do, you will have the best day and I cannot think of a better place. It feels so warm and family orientated and we can’t thank Maggie, Giuseppe and the staff enough for all they did! Just wish we could relive it all!

My husband I came for a meal and a wander around the rocks yesterday as a belated anniversary because of lockdown and it was simply amazing! The staff are so kind and welcoming and helped to really make the experience feel so special - they went over and above that I was smiling from ear to ear for hours! As always the rocks were spectacular (we spent 1 1/2 hours exploring) and the food was exquisite (you have to try the goats cheese tart - it was perfection). They even helped us to find our car keys in the dark as I hadn't realised that I'd dropped them when exploring the rocks and they did it without any fuss. This really is a special place - if you haven't been, you need to go and if you're thinking of returning then you just need to do it. I'm really not normally the sort of person who gushes about things, but yesterday was one of my best post lockdown experiences this year. Thank you so much to everyone at High Rocks and we'll see you again soon :)

I recently booked a surprise party for my finance here and we had such an amazing time! The staff were brilliant on the lead up to the big day (very reassuring, and even reduced the minimum numbers when people starting cancelling before the day!)

We were the only event that day so felt privileged to have it all to ourselves! I wanted to say a huge thank you all for making the whole process so easy. Everyone had such a wonderful time and the room was perfect. The bar team were also brilliant (we had family over from Italy and one lady was so great at making them feel welcome and spoke in Italian all evening for them!)

We are already considering this venue for our wedding!! Thank you again to all of you! I work in hospitality and I know how demanding it can be!

Our son got married at High Rocks on Saturday 7th August. It has been two years of planning and like any wedding a race at the end. We we’re blessed that this day wasn’t moved at all through the pandemic.
High Rocks definitely has the wow factor. The minute you step into the barn your breath is taken away, it is truly a sight to behold. The scenery and panoramic views are spectacular and steeped in history. The steam train that runs and stops at the bottom of the gardens is quite special. This hidden gem really is something magical.
From the moment you enter the building you are made to feel special. The staff are so helpful, nothing is to much trouble. Martin, our Toastmaster was an absolute treasure, he guided us through the whole day with such finesse and professionalism, he even became my personal therapist when I wobbled.
The food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing, from the canapés, main meal and the evening buffet, everything was just perfect. The waiting staff were constantly replacing the wines, champagne and water so you never felt your glass was empty.
The whole day was magnificent from start to finish and even at the finish there’s a shuttle bus to take you back to your hotel.
In my opinion, High Rocks was the most beautiful picturesque venue to hold such a memorable wedding. You made my son and daughter-in-laws day very special.
I would like to say a huge ‘Thank you’ to Martin and all the hard working staff at High Rocks, you excelled yourselves.

My wife and I walked here from Tunbridge Wells as we had seen some signposts and wanted to explore.

£5 a ticket seems a little steep, especially considering all the limitations it suggests i.e. no under 18's, no picnics, no dogs etc. However, as a couple it was a fun place to explore for an hour or two, getting lost in the rock formations and the small bridges.

Also be sure to bring your own refreshments, there aren't many places to buy them and those that do charge a premium.

We had a meal at High Rocks for our should have been wedding day. The food, service and welcome were fantastic. The staff at High Rocks are always so welcoming and helpful. We booked our meal at High Rocks as we were due to be getting married there on the same day. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, we have had to postpone to next year. We cannot thank the High Rocks team enough for their assistance, help and support in rearranging our wedding to next year. Nothing ever feels too much trouble, the team respond quickly and they have made moving our wedding feel so easy at such a stressful time for both us and them.
Although we have not had our wedding yet, we feel confident and safe in the hands of the High Rocks team.

We were a group of 8 and enjoyed the food. Seafood tart was good. Duck main was nice and others enjoyed the steak. Dessert was fine. The DJ was not so good... his choice of music was all over the place and you ended up getting up then Sitting down quickly again. The mix of people let it down too which no one can help, however, when people started leaving almost as soon as midnight came, they started clearing away! Taking balloons down, re setting tables and watching us and just waiting for us to go. Very unprofessional and very annoying. At 1am there was only another table of two people and us! Because of this we were determined to stay until it finished at 2pm, which we did. nit impressed at all and won’t be going back. £65 per head... expected better.

Absolutely incredible venue for our wedding not only is the place it’s self stunning inside and out but the staff are so friendly and helpful I honestly don’t have a bad word to say about them. After moving our wedding 5 times they persevered with me, made me feel comfortable and made me smile throughout the day aswell, there was always someone on hand to answer the phone, offer advice or lend a hand.
Our guests all said they’d be returning to explore and we will definitely be returning every year for an anniversary meal. 5 stars ⭐️
