“We cannot thank you enough for everything that you did - our day was so special and perfect, and every single member of staff was superb and went above and beyond for us and each of our guests. All of them have commented about how amazing the venue was! You made us feel so welcome and special, and your hard work enabled us to have the most beautiful, fun and relaxed day. We were so nervous but you guys made it so easy and enjoyable. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you and all of your staff.”
" I had my wedding ceremony and reception here and it was brilliant. The court room is beautiful. All the staff are friendly and helpful. Not one of my guests had a bad word to say. Highly recommended."
We had such an amazing day, and everything couldn't have gone smoother, the team involved couldn't do enough for us, and we are very grateful to them all. I wanted to particularly mention Jasmine, it was mentioned she was relatively new to running events, but after Kenny left we couldn't fault her at all, she did an amazing job of keeping the time table on track and generally just making our day stress free, she really is a credit to the venue :) Thanks again for having us, we really did have the best day ever and wouldn't have changed a thing!

“Myself and my wife Kay had our wedding at The Old Courts in September and it did not disappoint! We highly recommend the venue to anyone looking for a wedding or party venue! The staff made sure our day run smoothly and nothing was too much trouble! Becky was very helpful all the way through the planning of the day and we couldn’t have asked for anyone more laid back and cheerful through the stress of the wedding planning! The court room and its originality it’s perfect for anyone looking for a venue with character and its own personal charm!”
“We want to say a HUGE thank you to you and everyone at The Old Courts for all your work and help for our wedding. We had the best day, better than we ever imagined, and the venue was so, so brilliant. We got so many positive comments about the venue and the DJ from our guests. We feel very lucky that we had you there on the day as our coordinator, you were amazing, a massive support and made our day go so smoothly.”

Not only is it a beautiful feature packed environment but it is run by the most amazing team of people who went above and beyond to make my already special day incredible! From the planning stages to the moment we collected our cake to take home, every detail was covered and lovingly followed through! I really couldn’t have asked for more!”
