An Incredible Weekend
I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to the team at Forest Hills. It’s not been the easiest time for any venue in the hospitality industry with Brexit, Covid and staff changeovers, so I am really impressed with how the staff pulled everything together for our wedding. So thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. The staff were amazing and so friendly, the smiles and laughter with the staff really made our weekend that extra but special. A special shout out to Rashd, Jason, Anna and the incredible Chef because the food was melt in your mouth sensational! We had the most magical weekend, thank you! The newlywed Mr & Mrs Crawford x

Perfect Relaxation
We had our wedding here and absolutely love this place. The photos online do not do it justice, all year round this place is beautiful. Strongly recommend the afternoon tea. Hayley, the wedding coordinator and Duncan the manager are so helpful. They went above and beyond during this difficult time with restrictions constantly changing. We felt special the whole time we were there and cannot thank them enough. The restrictions which were put in place in the hotel made you feel safe and did not take away the beauty of the venue.
