Then there was the food and the beautiful settings!… Everyone commented on how wonderful the venue was and what a great place to hold a wedding it was. Well after my endless questions, concerns and emails I am sure you will now be relieved to see the back of me 🙂 Thank you so much, I couldn’t be happier.”

“I wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful wedding day Leila & James had at the Forest, everything was just as they wanted it and you and the staff were fantastic, nothing was any trouble to you and you kept us all so calm! The room was beautiful for the ceremony and perfect for the reception; your ability to transform the room at lightning speed was amazing. All the guests had a brilliant day and the service and quality of the food were complimented by everyone I spoke too, please give our thanks to chef and the staff for a truly delicious meal. My brother (who is extremely hard to please) said it was ‘the finest wedding breakfast he had ever eaten’ and ‘the lamb was outstanding.”

“Just wanted to pass on a bit of a belated thank you for helping to make our wedding reception on 1st May such a success. The day went incredibly smoothly thanks to you and your staff and we were able to relax in the knowledge that every detail was so well taken care of. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and the food was excellent too. Many people commented that it was the best food they had tried at a wedding reception so that was a great success too.
Thank you to you all again. We would happily recommend the Forest to anyone who asked us.”
