"We have just had our wedding at The Old Lodge last week and I cannot thank them enough. It was just perfect and everything we had dreamed of. The rooms are lovely - a couple a little basic but then they are the smaller, cheaper rooms. My bridal room was just beautiful. The staff there all seemed so relaxed when we arrived that I worried that the wedding day wouldn't run well, however that was just untrue. From the second we woke they couldn't do enough to help! Ellie one of the fantastic waitresses/bar staff brought breakfast to my room and helped my son (8) who wanted to go down and have breakfast all by himself. She also helped us with a few other little things an couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. She kindly took breakfast in bed to my son and daughter in their own room, tired the day after the wedding. Manu - The restaurant manager who did our music was amazing and of a lovely calm and helpful nature -he also helped again with my son who has special needs and helped with my many requests with different food etc without anything seeming too much trouble! Honor - The fantastic wedding coordinator - cool as a cucumber but had everything under control and nothing was too much to ask. The day ran like clockwork and not a thing went wrong or wasn't what I expected which is the sign of fantastic staff and a wonderful venue full of good hardworking people. All of our guests were just gobsmacked at this beautiful venue in such a stunning setting and thought it was the best place ever for a wedding! Thanks to the chef who did a wonderful job, guests kept telling me how much they loved the BBQ food and how the lemon cheesecakes and chocolate brownies were the best they'd ever had! I can't ever thank Honor and all The Team at The Old Lodge enough for giving Charlie and I and my children a perfect wedding day. We will be back for many anniversaries!"

"We got married here 15th September 2018 and have to say from Friday through to Sunday everything was perfect. Food excellent, disco and atmosphere remarkable a hard working team. Honor our wedding co-ordinator was "simply the best", we started planning a year ago and was upset to be told Ryan was leaving BUT we were more than happy to have Honor to takeover, nothing was too much trouble even the most stupid questions we asked were answered professionally and she deserves to do well in the future. Mark the DJ played what we requested and soon had the dance floor packed. An amazing time was had by all and we would highly recommend having your wedding here with beautiful setting."

"I just want to say a HUGE thank you to you and all of the staff at The Old Lodge for making our wedding so special! So many people commented on how good the food was and how lovely the venue was and everyone seemed to really enjoy the day. We really do appreciate all of the hard work that went on behind the scenes to make the day run smoothly. We feel so lucky to have found such an amazing venue with amazing staff that meant that the wedding we have been planning and imaging for the past two years turned into reality. We wouldn't have changed a single thing about the day."

"We just wanted to say a thank you for our special day. Yourself and the team were fantastic, and we could not have asked for anything more. We have had lots of people say how good the day was and how impressed they were with the venue and food in particular. I also know quite a few people have since returned to eat in the restaurant which speaks for itself!"
