We used Browns as the venue for our wedding and reception in November 2011.

Helena and her team were fantastic. The whole process of planning the wedding was made easy by the help given by Helena and her attention to detail.

The ushers commented that they had nothing to do on the day because the staff had everything sorted out before they had a chance to think about doing it. The level of service the staff gave with nothing being too much trouble was brilliant. On top of this all of the food we had throughout the day was delicious and our guests have all commented on how much they enjoyed it.
We were able to relax and just enjoy ourselves as we were confident that the staff had everything under control and this was the case.

We would recommend Brown's as a venue to get married in without hesitation and have very happy memories of a special day.

Helena and her team did a wonderful job in hosting our daughter's wedding. All our guests commented on the really friendly service and, of course, the excellent food. Browns is an outstanding venue and our 90 guests were comfortably accommodated in the intimate atmosphere which is engendered by this stylishly presented building. All in all we couldn't have been more pleased with the day and we unreservedly recommend it.

Just a quick note to say a very big THANK YOU to you and ALL of your team at Brown’s for our wedding weekend on 1 & 2 October.

You and your team couldn’t have been more attentive; the weather was outstanding (did you order that sunshine especially for us?!); and the food even more so. Every detail was catered for, and all of the guests commented on the friendliness and helpfulness of your staff team. It really couldn’t have gone any better.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the weekend so relaxed, enjoyable and personal. One guest comment summed it all up during the cream tea (which was also divine!)...”This has been the most relaxed, chilled out and informal wedding I’ve ever attended – but in a really, really good way”. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend with you and are already looking forward to our next visit.

Please also pass onto the Chef that he caused a stir with the beetroot sorbet...it was extremely well received and the guests were very enthusiastically commenting on the ‘unusual but fantastic flavour’!

We had our wedding lunch in the Library last Saturday and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and the day went without a hitch.

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was relaxed and informal, just what we had asked for. My husband and I will definitely be back for our anniversary, if not before!
