At your service

No one can compete with the emotion of the day but the food should certainly complement the day and deliver the highest of standards. Our Head Chef, Jim Wright, and his brigade have the skills, and the latest banqueting technology, to ensure that we can produce and deliver a hot, fresh, delicious Wedding Breakfast that will delight you and your guests.

We can cater for a wide range of gatherings with two wedding suites;

The Balmer Lawn is licensed for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships . Special discounts may be available for out of season and Sunday weddings.

For larger weddings why not take over the whole Hotel for a truly unforgettable experience, just imagine having everyone staying at the Hotel being a relative or friend, we have done 4 such weddings and the atmosphere is absolutely amazing - we would advise that you should book at least a year in advance to ensure availablity of all the bedrooms.

Don't take it from us!

Kimberley & Rob:Well what can I say it was everything we wanted and so much more! From looking around the hotel until picking up missed bits and pieces after the wedding we were given 5* attention and treatment. Everyone commented what a great day they had saying how attentive and polite all the staff were from waitresses & waiters, bar staff, receptionists, also the great food, and the ease and relaxed nature of it all!! Which is exactly what we had wanted no stress and to just enjoy every minute!”

Morwenna & Mark: "Our wedding was AMAZING. The whole thing went perfectly (and way too quickly!!) and the hotel was amazing. Everything was fantastic and so many people are still commenting now about how wonderful the hotel was and the food! That was to die for!"

Joanna & Keith: "Everything was perfect and our Function Manager was so calm and organised, we couldn't fault a single thing. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending the Balmer Lawn to anyone who was thinking of getting married or having their reception at a hotel."

Alex & Francesca Godden: 'Once again we just wanted to thank you and the staff at the Balmer Lawn for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives. It all went by so quickly but we loved every second of it and wish we could do it all over again. Both the night before the wedding and the day of the wedding the staff could not do enough to help us and our guests. Alex and I were both made to feel like VIPs on the day and that was very much appreciated. All of our guests commented on how helpful and friendly the staff were and we thought that you would like to know this and to pass on our messages of thank to everyone. The food was delicious and we had many praises for the meals and the buffet as well. We would recommend the Balmer Lawn to anyone who wishes to have a funfilled and virtually stress free wedding as you all helped to make it so easy for us.'
