Our daughter got married at Trunkwell House on 30 August 2015. We had a fantastic time, the venue was great, the service perfect and we had a marvellous time. It's a good job we arrived early as our plans had not been passed on to the team in charge on the day by our wedding coordinator who was absent. They... More

We held my daughter's wedding at Trunkwell House last week, and the quality of the service we received was brilliant. Tony, Rosie and the team could not have been more helpful throughout - the care and attention they brought to the whole experience from beginning to end was exceptional (despite the torrential rain!). In a world of lacklustre service, finding... More

It was our daughter's wedding here on 23rd April and we were so pleased that we booked this venue. The service was outside and the staff were prepared to set this out even though the weather was variable saying they would just move it if the rain came. I liked their flexible approach. Tony managed the event with real professionalism,... More

Was here for wedding evening do recently, never been before. Was very impressed. Fantastic setting, I'm sure it was beautiful during the day too! The marquee was huge! Had a decent selection of drinks. Which can be rare at wedding venues. The evening buffet was demolished! The food I tried was really good. Samosas especially!! Good staff and management too.

We've just had our wedding here and I cannot fault the venue. Everything about it from the planning to the day was flawless. We were made to feel so special and nothing was too much trouble. Our guests were highly complimentary about the food, especially how it arrived to the table very hot. The staff were all so nice and... More

Should have posted this sooner, everyone says it but we had the most perfect wedding day back in April that we could have wished for! Outdoor ceremony and drinks after on the lawn, then onto the smaller marquee to eat and party! The food was impeccable and Rosie, Tony & Lauren are amazing & all the staff we didn't meet... More

I'm so glad we decided to hold the Sue Ryder Southern Women of Achievement Awards at Trunkwell House this year! From the start Rosie helped us out with all my stupid questions and on the day Tony and the whole team accommodated everything we asked for! I really can't say thank you enough for making what can be an emotional... More

We went here for a work Christmas party in December 2015. The food was terrible and staff and particularly the bouncers were very rude. Narnia theme seemed non existant and the facilities were unclean and cramped.

We had our work Christmas party here in December 2015 and unfortunately I was not impressed. The Narnia theme could only be described as subtle. The Christmas trees in the room weren't even decorated. The food was mediocre and fairly bland. Choice for starter was duck pate which came with packet melba toast or Iceberg salad...isn't that just lettuce on... More

Great evening, fun and lively - food delivered to dining table on time and hot !! Narnia themed characters, and good to have a photo opportunity for the party guests. More staff needed on the bar at the start of the event please - as long wait for drinks......
