They had set up a marquee which was the venue for the breakfast and party which worked really well. The staff were friendly and helpful and even though the bar was quite small there were plenty of...

Very impressive. Gorgeous grounds. Large and suitably warm marque despite it raining all day! The staff were very attentive. A big shout out to the lady who went above and beyond normal expectations to take a group of bridesmaids to a wedding as a taxi came and then abandoned us! Very much an additional service for which we were extremely... More

We can't express how fantastic Team Fonmon (Tracey, Hannah & Casey) were in the run up to our big day and on our Wedding day itself. We had the added complication of planning a wedding from the US and the team gave us everything we needed to ensure our day ran smoothly and represented us as a couple. In the... More

Very disappointed. After looking forward to afternoon christmas tea for months, upon arrival we were actually made to wait outside in the cold as the choir (who were very good) took up most of the room inside, there were elderly people sat waiting on the stairs as we were left to stand for quite a while. We were sent upstairs... More

This evening I visited this venue to meet up with some friends before Christmas. We were met with a choice of warm mulled wine or a non- alcoholic drink.Good choice as most of us drove there. The hallway had an extremely tall Christmas tree, beautifully decorated. Staff were friendly and kept returning to see if we wanted anything, ( our... More
