Our group of U3A members had a really interesting and informative guided tour of this wonderful house and the adjoining parish church, followed by a delicious lunch at the Dorney Court Kitchen Garden cafe. Anyone not able to cope with the stairs in this Tudor House can watch a DVD of the first floor.

Her wedding could not have been more wonderful- everything and I do mean EVERYTHING was perfect The Church is absolutely beautiful, and the vicar and all her team delivered a super, personalised,...

It means a huge amount to my wife and I to receive positive feedback from guests who have experienced Dorney Court. Having taken over the reins relatively recently, we are keen to make sure we meet the highest standards while retaining the relaxed family feel of a private home. This is an interesting balance to strike so we are delighted... More

Dorney Court is a Tudor house set in beautiful grounds with attractive gardens which has been in the same family for nearly 500 years. There are guided tours of the house at set times which last about an hour. It is a very warm house with lots of interesting artefacts but unfortunately photography is not permitted in the house.

Who knew this historical gem was there! Our guide, Robbie, took us through the centuries as we travelled through the rooms of this manor on the Thames. So many paintings, and the rays of sunlight coming through the lead windows gave a wonderful atmosphere. We were welcomed with tea and biscuits - and home made flapjacks (yum) and we concluded...

the house is lived in and owned by the Palmer family. Only open for guided tours in August so check the web site before making a visit. Excellent garden centre with a small coffee shop/cafe in the grounds.

Let me just start this review by saying I'm the kind of girl who has dreamt of her wedding since she was a little girl, so expectations were VERY high. Well, Absolute Taste and the Palmer family just took my bar and sent it sky high. The level of service was outstanding; Christina Bance and Chloe Hannan at Absolute Taste... More

It is always an absolute pleasure for us to welcome couples getting married. Winter weddings in particular are fantastic with roaring fires and plenty of warming food and drink. Hosting Louise and Brad was a privilege and we are very happy to have played a small role as they begin their great adventure. More

I described the kind of wedding venue we were looking for to Absolute Taste who suggested Dorney Court. We wanted to have food that was simple, tasty and beautiful for our big day and decided on the caterer before we even picked our venue, It was perfect and ended up being the only place we looked at. We were married... More
