Wedding Testimonials

A selection of testimonials provided by some of the happy couples who have married at The Cock O'Barton.

Hi Sian,

As we’ve just arrived in Thailand and parked ourselves on a lounger along the Chao Phraya with a beer I thought I’d drop you a quick note to say a HUGE thank you from

Andy & I. We had the most amazing day on Saturday, couldn’t have asked for any more. You were incredible with all your help turning our vision into reality, and Lindsay did an absolutely fab job on the day keeping things running smoothly. Big shout out to all the bar staff also, such friendly & helpful faces all evening.

We’ve had so many compliments on the venue and food from all the guests.

Thank you again

Eve & Andy xx

Good Morning Alethea and all the staff at the Cock O Barton.

Just a note to say what a fantastic time we had last week at the meal to celebrate our Wedding Blessing.

Prior to the event, Alethea organised everything perfectly, was very easy to talk to and extremely flexible.

The day itself was perfect. The service was exemplary; the staff were all very efficient and nothing was too much trouble.

Everyone commented on how fabulous the food was....particularly the carrots! Everything was beautifully cooked and plentiful. Our sincere compliments to the chef.

A special mention must be made to Keeley who looked after us in the function room. What an absolute star she was. Keeley managed the whole event pretty much on  her own and although she was being pulled in lots of different directions she remained calm and was extremely pleasant and cheerful the whole time. She is a real credit to you and made the event run smoothly.

Your staff ensured that this was a very special day for our family and we are so pleased that it all went so well. It really was a day we will always remember with great happiness.

Very Best Wishes to you all and we look forward to eating with you again soon.

Joy & Mike Walker.

Hi Sian,

Long time no speak, I am so sorry that it has taken me over a month to write this email that is very rude of me.  It has however taken us nearly a month to come down from the best day we have ever had!  I can not thank you enough for everything you and the whole team did in preparation and on the actual day.  It ran without a hitch and you completely thought of everything, the staff that worked on the day and throughout the night were friendly, helpful and the ones I chatted to seemed to have actually enjoyed it.  Everyone I have spoken to since the wedding has commented on the venue saying it was perfect and the atmosphere was just right so I just wanted to let you know that you, Jane, Lindsey, Johnny, Becca and everyone else involved in the day made it 100% special and we could not have been happier.  Please pass on our thanks to everyone, including the kitchen as the food was incredible!

I have personally recommended you to everyone I have spoken to since the wedding, I want to sing your praises as loud as possible.  I am sure our paths will cross again,

Thanks again Sian, you guys really know how to put on a do!

Lots of love Mrs Sian Williams xxxx

Good morning Sian, Alethea, Jane and the amazing COB team,

We just want to say a huge thank you for everything, our wedding was everything and more than we could have ever imagined, everything was just perfect, all our guest couldn't believe how beautifull the place looked, my decorations were placed perfectly, I really wouldn't have known where to start.

The food was amazing as we expected, everybody loved it, I had said from the start I didn't want anyone to be hungry at my wedding and you didn't disappoint, our gluten free guests came to me on the day telling me how well they had been looked after, thank you so so much for that.

We both want to say a huge thank you and keep up the amazing work you do.

All our love from Mr & Mrs Mccann ❤️

Hi Alethea & all the team,

Sorry it’s taken us so long to send you an email , we can’t believe it’s been 10+ weeks since our wedding we have been so busy since then. We went straight on honeymoon and then straight back to work.

We just wanted to both say thank you very much to every single person who made our wedding day the best day of our lives.

Every single member of staff was smiley, helpful and nothing was too much trouble on the day. A lot of our guests commented on how fantastic all the staff working were. We also had endless compliments about the food especially the evening fish and chips... unfortunately I can’t comment I was far too busy enjoying the dance floor & the G&T’s ha ha.

The Cock O' Barton is an absolutely beautiful wedding venue and the way it was decorated on the day of our wedding was everything and far more than I ever wanted/had visions of. We can’t recommend the venue enough to our friends and family for future weddings.

A huge thank you to Alethea for being so fab from the minute we booked right up until the end! You are blummin marvellous and I couldn’t have done it without you, you made the whole process very smooth and completely stress free! Exactly how I feel a wedding should be...

We both really appreciated you giving me your mobile number to text any last minutes queries we had, you went above and beyond!

Thanks so much again guys

Lots of Love

What can we say, the Cock O Barton was a great venue to get married, 110 guests with everything falling into place. Alethea was awesome and helped with all the planning of our special day and took the stress from us and made things work as we wanted. The service and attention to detail that was provided on our big day was second to non. Jane is a great master of ceremonies and helped everyone through the day. The food was exceptional and all the guest commented on how attentive all the staff where. We would highly recommend new Brides & Grooms to plan their special day at the Cock O Barton. We loved our day and have great memories of our wedding.

Yesterday we got married and had our reception at the Cock O'Barton. It was THE most perfect and amazing day of our lives and every single member of the team made it so.

From Sian and Alethea organising us and making us feel confident and excited from the word go, to Rachel, Hope, Jane and Louis making us feel at ease before and on the day.

The amazing chefs and kitchen staff who fed our day guests with exquisite fine dining and our evening guests with yummy fish and chips, and the waiters/waitresses & bar attendants who served everyone in a calm, positive and professional manner... nothing was too much trouble and everyone had a smile on their face.

The cleaning team who prioritised us to ensure I could get dressed in peace and a beautiful room and everyone who contributed to the grounds, the rooms, the pub itself etc... also need to be mentioned as it was just the most impressive team effort.

The recommendations provided for suppliers were ace, in particular for Indemand DJs, whose service was perfect in every way.

We are so grateful that we chose here to have our special day and can't wait to continue going regularly in the future. Great work, guys. Keep it up.
