My husband and I decided that this year we would have our Christmas Day lunch out, as we were on our own for that day. We were lucky enough to be able to secure a table at the Mercure Woughtonon the Green, and have to say it was thge best decision made. We were most impressed with the service, the meal, and the staff's attention to detail throughout. The meal itself was wonderful, with a good selection at each course. The attention we received from the staff from arrival to departure and throughout our day there, was excellent. We would love to be able to join them again for our 2013 Christmas Day lunch, which we are planning towards already. Certainly a restaurant to be recommended to anyone appreciating excellent service, surroundings and superb food.

Our Christmas meal was in a freezing marquee with zero atmosphere despite having been booked weeks ago.

Dancing was impossible due to the volume of the DJ who also played only techno muzac for the first few hours, did he not notice no one was on the floor?

The dance floor was in a bar through a doorway offering nothing by way of a usual dinner/dance atmosphere.

This was the worst place I have been ever for a special event.

The manager was patronising and rude to our initial requests for tables somewhere warm, heating where we were sitting, or reducing the earsplitting volume of the disco.

Mercure Directors take note, it doesn't take much to topple a 'name' from the 4 star lists. This place has a 4* AA notice at front entrance, what a joke! Scruffy dirty carpets and paintwork, disinterested staff, slack manager - its nothing like 4 stars.

Stay here regulary on business and have to say the chef and his team are great here! Food is clearly fresh and seasonal and the team are more that happy to requests,

The fine wine menu is certainly worth looking at with some really good wines at reasonable prices, I have paid over £80 for wines being sold at less that £40!

Well - the dust has finally settled since our daughter’s unforgettable wedding at St Mary’s Church on 9 June, and the equally unforgettable reception - organised, managed and staged to perfection by you and your team at Parkside House.

But the memories will live with everyone forever.

The happy couple - Tom and Amy - have just returned from their honeymoon to discover masses of videos and photographs of the big day - all of which will help them to relive the best and most exciting day of their lives. Hours of pleasure!

The setting for the wedding was second to none - the 13th century church next door with all its history, and Parkside House - looking fantastic when the sun shone in the afternoon, showing off the splendid grounds around the building, and which provided the perfect setting for photographs.

As parents of the bride, we really cannot thank you and your marvellous staff for everything that you did to make the day so special and memorable.

Please thank each and everyone for being star performers on the day - polite, incredibly helpful and hard working. Nothing was too much trouble, and their attitude helped make the day go so well.

The food, too, was excellent and could not be faulted - everyone was highly complementary. And special mention to for the Malbec - what a stunning red wine! The extra, single portion meal dishes in the evening were a fantastic idea and great touch. Delicious, too, and a great talking point.

We reserve special praise for yourself and Nicola (your wedding manager). Your help and advice over the weeks beforehand in helping plan the day down to the last detail ensured everything was just perfect and went like clockwork, and your enthusiasm, commitment and professionalism on the day were frankly amazing.


We cannot thank you enough or speak too highly of your efforts. Without you, the day would not have been as wonderful as it undoubtedly was. Thank you both so much.

One enduring memory of the day will be you meeting the happy couple as the left the church after the ceremony, with a tray and two glasses of Champagne. What a lovely touch!

Everyone who attended the wedding and reception, many of whom stayed overnight at the hotel, had only good words to say about you, the hotel, the food, and all the staff. That speaks volumes about the management.

We look forward to coming back to the Parkside again.

And for all couples looking for the best, most perfect venue for their wedding reception - we cannot recommend Parkside House and its staff more strongly. One thing is for sure - they would never regret choosing you.

Thanks again for everything.

We stayed on a travel zoo offer over a weekend. It involved dinner on the first night which was just fantastic. The food was beautiful and the staff where just so very helpful and knowledgeable about wine and different drinks. Top marks and will be looking to going again in the near future.
