Why we love The Manor
We love The Manor as it combines modern sophistication with Gothic and Medieval architecture. The level of care and attention that has gone into the sensitive restoration of this estate is equalled only by the level of personal service and attention you can expect when planning and hosting your wedding ceremony and celebrations here. A bespoke approach is taken to planning each and every wedding at this venue. The in-house team is also “bijoux”! They will work with you to ensure that every aspect of your wedding day reflects your own tastes and preferences, working with suppliers of your choice and/or recommending tried and tested local suppliers as you require.
Take your wedding day food and drink for example. Ahead of your wedding, the kitchen team at The Manor will work with you to create your perfect wedding day menu and service package. Whether this is anything from fine dining with silver service or family feasting style with a more relaxed vibe, you can be assured that the best local ingredients will be sourced and prepared in our kitchens in line with your tastes and preferences, as well as taking into account any special dietary requirements anyone in your party may have. It is rare to find such a flexible and considered approach to wedding day dining and with prices starting from £60 per head this offers great value for money too.
The Manor is unique in its approach offering a small hand-picked selection of chefs. These include a French chef, 2 British chefs offering a rustic-style foodie menu to a fine dining menu. All our dining options are available with a wine pairing.
