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.

A brilliant day!
We just can't thank the amazing team at The Fox and Goose enough. Lynne and Alex were just so calm organized and professional. They sorted everything with such an easy and friendly manner and the day went so smoothly and happily! We had the lovely pie and pea dinner and it was perfect, thank you so much to the fabulous chef! It was such a joy to be married in such a gorgeous location, thank you again to Craig and all his brilliant team.

FAQ

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.
