Wedding Testimonials

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

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

To Sian, Alethea and all staff at CoB

We would just like to thank you all for making our day run so smoothly. Thanks for having everything covered and for all your hard work. We had the most magical/beautiful day and we have fallen in love with Cob a little bit more!

Thank you for looking after us, from the very first look around to check out this morning. Absolutely perfect.

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.

Hi Alethea, Just a quick email to thank you and the rest of the team for such a magical wedding day!

Special thanks to you for all the help with the planning from day one to the execution on the day. You truly were a god send for us and nothing was ever too much trouble. I really can not thank you enough, I’m such a control freak but you made me feel very much at ease in handing over.

We have to say a special thanks to Rachel and Dave. They were amazing and again nothing too much trouble. You are very lucky to have them on your team and I really don’t think the day would have been the same without them. From the meal the night before, to a few morning stressful situations to making everyone feel so welcome and relaxed for the rest of the day and evening.

The rooms were great and the venue set up looked amazing!

We could not have picked a better venue to hold our day. It was absolutely perfect and we only have you and the team to thank for that.

We wish you a very successful 2018.

Sending many thanks

Hi Sian, Just a quick email to say thank you so much to all the team at CoB who looked after us yesterday. Lydia and her team could not be more attentive and they couldn’t do enough for us – it made for a brilliant day and every one remarked what a fantastic place it was and what a superb “find” it was.

We were also very lucky with the weather, having a perfect autumnal day, allowing us all to sit out in the sunshine before the meal, and in between the meal and the evening gathering. We were very fortunate.

Also, please will you pass on our thanks to the Chef and his team – the food was faultless and absolutely amazing both during the day and in the evening. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, and again everyone was very complimentary, and the service was fantastic. The full English breakfast the next day was also superb. We all went home stuffed!!!

We will definitely be returning to celebrate our first anniversary next year – if not before!

We couldn’t have held our wedding in a better location – and your private room – with our small party on one large square table was genius!

Once again, thank you so much for making our day so very very special.

Myself and John just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for making our wedding day so perfect. We are enjoying our honeymoon and still keep reliving our fabulous wedding day. The venue was amazing, decorations looked wonderful and the bedrooms were so lovely and comfy.

Both of you and all of your staff at COB made sure our day ran smoothly, which it did indeed. Even the weather held up until the evening. So many of our guests commented on the beautiful venue and delicious food. They couldn't get over how much tasty food there was and loved our alternative canapés and BBQ. Myself and John barely ate anything on the day and regretted it the following day. So we will definitely be back soon for the amazing food.

Your recommendation of the dj from Indemand was fantastic as he played the music that we wanted and added additional uplighting to highlight the wonderful venue. He even caught photos of the night and gave them to us on cd which I thought was a lovely touch. Your staff were captured on film dancing away which showed that they love their job. Nothing was ever too much for them and they were so accommodating. Please pass on our sincere thanks.

We are so happy that my mum told us about your beautiful venue and we can't thank you enough for making our wedding the best day ever.

My family loved how the bedrooms were all together and we could gather on the courtyard. They are already planning on staying at COB next year for our 1 year anniversary! Haha!
