Amazing wedding reception venue and staff!
We opted for this venue for our reception following our church wedding. We chose this venue especially since it set the perfect tone, with its elegant ambiance and spacious layout. From the moment we began planning, the staff were there for us, offering invaluable assistance and support. Massive thanks to Melanie, our dedicated wedding manager assigned to us, who was an absolute gem, ensuring that everything ran smoothly and seamlessly on the big day, giving us complete peace of mind. And the food was delicious and filling, everyone was satisfied. Overall, choosing this venue for our reception was one of the best decisions we made, and we're so grateful for the unforgettable experience it provided on our special day. Thanks, Duke of Cornwall!

Nothing was too much trouble for them, they really took the pressure off and made the experience alot less stressful !! The wedding package we chose was extremely reasonably priced and was worth every penny !! From the food to the flowers, everything was perfect !! We highly recommend this venue.

Our wedding
So our wedding was well organised and the staff was just amazing from start to finish service was just about on point. The package we booked was a good price. The only let down was on the day. When it came to our guest hearing us speak no microphone was provided for service or speeches. The rooms was of size so the guests at the very back could not hear us. Other than that the team worked hard and we was happy with the day and overall service we got from start to finish.

Wonderful wedding venue
The team at the Duke sorted all of my wishes for a very unique wedding, in an incredibly professional and helpful way. I have been to many events there, and stayed over many times, and I've honestly never had one issue. Service standards are high, food quality really great, and simply a beautiful building.
