Full Description
Our venue incorporates the historic Fox & Goose Inn, one of the oldest hostelries in Derbyshire with an abundance of charm and character. It was presented to the Monks of Beauchief Abbey in a license granted by Richard II in 1392. We have maintained some of our original features which are still visible throughout the venue, making it one of the most historical and idyllic venues in Derbyshire and the surrounding areas for your wedding day. For those of you who don’t want to miss a moment of our beautiful surroundings and stunning views, not only do we have the Abbey Suite, the Orangery and the Priory Room, we have the perfect setting on Pudding Pie hill for an intimate occasion or a spectacular Marquee or Tipi wedding for up to 250 guests and anything in between. We understand that Marquee weddings may traditionally be held during the warmer months, but our facilities and impeccable attention to detail allows couples and guests to enjoy the surroundings whatever the weather may be. Our marquee is framed by our impressive woodland area and enjoys the benefit of its own outside seating area, with our manicured lawns, a sublime spot for your guests to enjoy the views of Derbyshire and when the evening draws in you and your guests will be blown away by the most breath-taking sunset. Every Marquee wedding can be tailored to suit your personal tastes and vision for your day, because after everything, it is YOUR day. You and your guests will be the Crowning Point of Pudding Pie Hill.

The best day of our lives
Wow, where to start we had our wedding recently at the fox & goose and it was incredible. Alex, Lynne & Craig were brilliant from the start of our planning to us leaving after our wedding. Alex especially has been so attentive, keeping us updated & answering the thousands of questions I had. Our guest could not stop raving about the venue and how perfect it was with the most incredible views! Highly recommend the venue & staff, the hog roast was amazing & the dj! Its going to become our wedding anniversary place of choice! Thanks again all.

We also had so many compliments about how pretty your venue was, how great the food was, and how it generated such a relaxed, fun atmosphere
A huge thankyou to this venue on our wedding day on Wednesday the 25th August, we had such a fantastic time! We also had so many compliments about how pretty your venue was, how great the food was, and how it generated such a relaxed, fun atmosphere, despite it being the first large gathering for a lot of our guests since the pandemic hit last year. I especially had many good words for your open BBQ in the evening, compliments to the chef and his team! We would not hesitate to recommend you to others! And we will be back for a Christmas meal no doubt 😊

Words are not enough!
There are not enough words to express how amazing this venue is! We had the most perfect day, nothing was too much, even accommodating one of the brides arriving in on horse back! The venue is stunning, already set up for the perfect day, Which meant we could just relax and enjoy the run up to our wedding!

Everything on our special day went perfectly, the staff that were on couldn’t do enough for us and the food was beautiful.
Such a little gem of a place. We married here in August this year after booking in 2019…3rd date later and it finally happened. Alex and Lynn were amazing, they took all of our stresses away. Everything on our special day went perfectly, the staff that were on couldn’t do enough for us and the food was beautiful. If We could do it all again We’d go back to the fox and goose. I want to say Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did for us, up to and including our day ♥️ if anybody had The Fox and Goose on their list….move it to the top. All the best with up and coming weddings and keep being the stars that you are.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We had a Wedding in April 2018 where 2 local paramedics got married. A few months before the wedding the Brides dad suffered a cardiac arrest and the groom did CPR until the ambulance arrived and saved his now Father in Laws life. Their wedding was a local news story as her dad was able to walk her down the aisle. It was a very emotional and beautiful day and was actually on the local news. I still stay in contact with this couple.
