The BEST wedding party!

We held our wedding party at The Duke’s Head a couple of weeks’ ago and had the BEST time. The pub looked beautiful, the staff were fantastic and the food was delicious. Jake who helped organise the whole thing was an absolute hero, he ensured everything was exactly as we wanted it and went above and beyond to give us the perfect party. If you are looking for a bit of a different wedding venue I would definitely recommend it. All our guests had a fantastic time!



Huge thank you

Lesley and I would like to say a huge thank you to you and your team for all the hard work you put into making our wedding on Saturday such a great success. The room looked amazing, the food was great and many of the guests made a point of mentioning how friendly and courteous they thought the staff were. Please pass on our thanks to Jake and Harriet.

I was very nervous before the event but in all our meetings you reassured me, quietly and calmly,”It will be fine” and you were absolutely right. We are very grateful and we would definitely recommend the Coxswain room to anyone thinking of planning a wedding reception.



Attentive, professional and friendly

We had a lovely 3 course lunch upstairs in the beautiful Woolsey Room at the Dukes Head to celebrate our Wedding. The room was the perfect size for our 30 guests and the food was delicious. Sofia helped us diligently before the event and the bar staff and servers on the day were excellent; attentive, professional and friendly, willing to accommodate all requests. Would recommend a large party here, but equally we will be back for a quiet pint and bite to eat!
