Compliments From the Bride and Groom

Some things are very hard to put into words – as sometimes there are just no words! I want to THANK YOU and your crew for making our big day to easy! From the day we stepped into your office (unannounced might I add) we were welcomed in and felt comfortable with you from the get go – to the point we didn’t look elsewhere, at all for a venue!!! Meant to be they say.

Your help throughout the whole planning process kept me sane!!! Your advice and ideas were priceless – and we ended up with the perfectly decorated venue – with a few personal touches! Your support along with you staff helping us set up in advance due to an unexpected set back was amazing. I am grateful for your patience whilst I continually procrastinated about things (trying to make a decision)!!

The whole day was amazing with a beautiful outdoor ceremony and a million photo opportunities – the options were endless! Time was the only thing not on our side!

And to your chef & kitchen – the food – AMAZEBALLS – the best buffet ever, fresh, hot and tasty – such a great selection and the deserts, don’t get me started! Working together on a suitable menu was so easy! ALL our guests commented on the food – everyone was extremely happy.
Your venue is definitely a one stop shop from start to finish which was exactly what I wanted! Me and Ferg were both so lucky to have stumbled upon you, forever grateful – so THANK YOU, the day was amazing and I wouldn’t change a thing!!! I’m sure you will continue to help make many future brides (and grooms) days as wonderful as ours - very happy!!!

Much Love Jo & Ferg x 


Brogan and I really wanted to send a huge thank you to you and your team for all of your help and support over the last 12+ months. You really made the whole process so much easier and a LOT less stressful.The food was amazing, the staff is fantastic and the whole day was a huge success thanks to you guys. I really cannot praise you and your team enough and we will be recommending you to everyone we know!

We had an amazing day, it couldn’t have gone any smoother if we tried!  I know I have already said it but thank you so much to you and all your team, you were all so amazing and helpful and made it all just so easy for us, which we so appreciate!

Also; a very belated message to all the brilliant Race Course staff...you are TOPS. Sincere thanks for making Yvette and Luke's day utterly perfect and memorable and so stress free for Ged and I as parents of the bride, we had a wonderful time. Megan and Jenny, you did an excellent job and your staff did you proud. We have had numerous compliments on the awesome food and service!!

Ash and Matt, what can we say; you are both absolutely fantastic. We feel you both went outside the square in terms of caring for us and our guests including calling a taxi for two very tired parents at the end of the evening.Take Care all of you and stay as brilliant as you are.
