Weddings in Exeter

We know that wedding planning can be stressful but with our Events Manager Jon you are in the safe hands! Picture your wedding reception with friends and family in our stunning Gallery room, a light spacious space with the access to our Secret Garden and private patio. Truly a perfect place to have your three course wedding breakfast and to raise a glass to new beginnings.

You could then lead your party downstairs into our stylish, bare brick Cellar Bar for the ultimate celebration. Whether you want a DJ, live band or your own personalised playlist, we can cater for it all.  Our space is completely private, offering a private bar, friendly bar staff, delicious party platters and an exclusive dance floor.

With our 20 boutique rooms, you will have a perfect space to spend the day getting ready with your bridal party, having some pictures and bubbles and then when you are well and truly danced-out, you only have to go upstairs, rest and enjoy a beautiful breakfast in bed the following morning.
