We had our Wedding ceremony and reception at The Elephant at the end of September. We were initially drawn to the venue due to the size, flow of the rooms and decor and after meeting Claire (Events Manager) and sampling the delicious food, we knew this was the place for us. The day went brilliantly and every member of staff were friendly and helpful. Any minor issue that occurred was dealt with extremely efficiently and professionally by Chris and thanks to Claire's planning, the day flowed really well. We had such a lovely day we are returning...

My daughter and son in laws wedding was held here and the whole team were amazing they all worked really hard and made the day a great success.

We had our wedding reception at the Elephant Hotel. Overall everything was excellent. Having the main reception room adjoining the garden was ideal. Lots of space for children to play. The food was great, the staff were professional and friendly and ensured that everything went smoothly. Thank you!

The Elephant Hotel

We got married at The Elephant in July and it was a wonderful day and a perfect venue for a wedding. I loved the quirky style of the hotel with its beautiful dark wood floors, big sofas, chandeliers and a huge painted elephant in the reception.The garden was lovely too and made for beautiful photos. Claire Cole, the venue's wedding planner, gave helpful advice and suggestions beforehand. On the day, thanks to her organisation and a fantastic staff, the wedding went like a dream.

We held our wedding at the hotel on the 13th August 2016 and we couldn't have ask for a better day! ALL the staff were just unbelievable from start to finish and nothing was to much trouble, friendly and so helpful. The set up was fantastic and looked great. Whatever we wanted they done, if we wanted to move or add tables, sofas etc they did it without issue. We had the BBQ for the wedding breakfast which was just amazing and everyone commented on how nice it was, it worked so well. The evening nibbles of bacon rolls, fish finger rolls, egg rol...

We got married at The Elephant and had The Best Day and night. We've had so many complements on the venue, from both the look and feel, how gorgeous the garden was to how relaxed and informal the event was - which was exactly what we wanted. We're delighted that we had the whole place to ourselves, and we knew that we would probably need it!, and it felt just right. The kids were great and had a ball, we didn't lock our room all weekend and it just seemed to work. The staff were all brilliant, so helpful, attentive and friendly and really help...
