What a venue for a wedding.. beautiful surroundings, staff are top class and the food was out of this world. I don't know if I had time for pictures. I was licking my fingers. The band were sensational Twilight Groove. What a day
Wow! As a pro function band specialising in weddings, we play at a LOT of different venues all over the country and we love love, LOVE, Davenport! 😍
We played at the wedding of Dom & Claire on Saturday and professionalism of the team at Davenport was second to none and yet they were still approachable, warm and so friendly.
The the venue itself was absolutely beautiful and spotless clean and the food was delicious and beautifully presented.
The attention to detail was impeccable and you really feel like this is more than just a job for the team there. The care they take in ensuring their couples and their guests have a day to remember is something to be applauded and they managed the day like a dream, everything went smoothly and it genuinely felt like a perfect.
I would not hesitate to recommend Davenport to anyone looking for first class service and an outstanding and beautiful venue to host their special day.
Well done team Davenport, you totally smashed it 🙌🏽
Wow what a place for a wedding. Grandeur at its best. This was such a magical wedding and the bride and groom were so happy with the day. As the mum of the groom it was lovely to see my son so happy. Thank you Davenport House
I don’t even know where to start thanking you all for our special day. Finding out our abroad wedding was cancelled last minute was a horrendous, stressful and difficult time after waiting 3 years for it to happen. And then Lizzie called. I must have sent 40 emails in an attempt to find a venue and Lizzie called me to check if I was ok, to see if there was anything she could help with and to advise on what to do next. I am eternally grateful for that call. Lizzie, you are an angel!
We made our first visit to Davenport house on our ‘should have been’ wedding day, a baking hot day in July and we instantly fell in love. The venue itself is just outstanding and all of our guests commented on its beauty. The grounds are Superb, and perfect for photographs. Each room has its own styled character and our guests loved exploring them all.
All the staff there are truly wonderful. Each time I called, emailed, visited… every person was a delight to talk to. Ian advised us with the food/wine and all our guests complimented the dinner. They couldn’t get enough! Honestly you all made us feel so welcome and comfortable. A particular thank you must go to Dawn and to Chelsea for looking after us so perfectly from day 1. They were on hand to answer all questions, easy to talk to and all round wonderful people. I simply couldn’t have done it without you both. I was so sad when Chelsea came to me and said it was time for her to go, she had guided me through all the prep and emotions of the day that it felt more like we were friends than bride and coordinator. Both Dawn and Chelsea are excellent at their jobs and any bride and groom are lucky to have their helping hand.
Our guests have not stopped talking about the house, the staff and the running of the day. Everything was just PERFECT! We had a wonderful day and want to do it all over again.
I always love coming to Davenport House with my daughter to visit my best friend who also stays with her family. The accommodation is beautiful and so comfortable. Lizzie is a wonderful and kind host who makes sure her guest have everything they need. The grounds and setting are gorgeous and I always have a great time. Can't wait to visit again.
Amazing place. We've stayed there several times and it's our go to place whenever we visit family in England. Great hosts. Nothing is ever a problem and they always go that extra mile to make sure you feel comfortable. Very child friendly and peaceful. Can't wait to visit again !
Having grown up near Davenport House it is where I’d always dreamt of having my wedding day. After getting engaged and visiting the house for the first time I was blown away and knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding. Lizzie, Joe, Verity, Alex & everyone at Galloping Gourmet were amazing at making sure everything ran perfectly. We can’t thank you enough xxx
Davenport House was the perfect wedding venue for us and we are so lucky to have found it. The house itself is stunning as are the grounds. Turning the corner at the top of the drive and seeing the house for the first time takes your breath away. The staff were helpful and flexible throughout the lead up to our big day. They went the extra mile to ensure our wedding was personalised and our needs were met. Galloping Gourmet tailored our menu to suit the needs of the wedding party and nothing was too much trouble. We so loved spending our day at Davenport House and it will always be a special place to us. The decor and whole feel of the house is truly magical and such a spectacle. Our guests loved the venue and many commented on the beauty of the house as well as the fantastic food. Thank you to Lizzie and Joe for sharing this gorgeous home with us. Thank you to Nikki and Verity for all your help with the planning and organisation of the day, to Josh for being so flexible and all other staff who helped to create a wonderful day. We hope to visit again in the future.
Utterly fabulous!! Beautiful setting for my sister's wedding. the staff were amazing; totally professional & accommodating, anything possible. The food was unreal and plentiful and again delivered in the professional and accommodating. The owner's ability to make you feel you're home from home & you have the run of this beautiful house & grounds. Lizzie & Joe are above & beyond helpful and Jamie (event ops manager) and his team were insanely professional & superb! There's something unique about Davenport House. The wedding was stunning. Thank you so much for an unforgettable day!
Absolute Wedding Perfection! It was love at first sight when we came to Davenport House and it was equally amazing when we got married here yesterday. The staff were brilliant, the food faultless, and the setting so beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect venue to get married. Thank you so much for making our day so special.
