Wedding Day Reviews


Highly Recommended

We were so lucky to have our wedding reception at the Rydon Inn, and it was more than we could have wished for. From the moment we walked in the staff were welcoming, polite and nothing was too much trouble. Sophie and the staff had put our decorations up for us and everything was laid out perfectly, even our wedding cake had been perfectly decorated for us when I didn’t have the time to finish it off. The buffet was lovely and there was plenty of it! We were so lucky the weather was nice so we could make the most of the beautiful gardens and the seating outside. We could not of asked for a more perfect end to our wedding day, and we have the Rydon Inn to thank for it. We would highly recommend to everyone! Thank you Sophie, Richard and to all the staff that helped us on that day.

Perfect and Picturesque

We chose The Rydon Inn for both our wedding ceremony and reception, as we wanted somewhere local, easily accessible and with enough space for all of our guests.
We also wanted a picturesque outside space where guests could relax. Everyone loved this, and really made the most of it throughout the day. We were really happy with the service we received from Richard & Sophie, from the first meeting right through to the day, everything was really well organised, well thought out, nothing was too much trouble and their attention to detail was spot on. We couldn’t have asked for more. All of the staff were very committed to ensuring everything went smoothly on the day, and this was something that was noticed and commented upon by many of our guests.
The food we chose was as usual, excellent, and the service ran like clockwork.
All of this came at a price which was very good value.
The Rydon turned out to be a perfect venue for our special day and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to others for their wedding.

Exactly What we Wanted

We had our wedding reception at The Rydon Inn, June 2013. Throughout the whole wedding planning process the owners and their staff were absolutely brilliant, checking every detail at least twice to be sure! We were able to choose whatever we wanted for the wedding breakfast, evening buffet and drinks. We were able to decorate how we wanted, nothing was too much trouble. Everything was done on the day for us and we didn’t have to worry about a thing (exactly what we wanted).
We were really impressed especially on the day when everything was perfect and the staff couldn’t do enough for us, checking regularly that everything was how we wanted it. It’s a lovely place inside and out and we would highly recommend it as a place to have a wedding reception as the day couldn’t have gone better.

Absolutely Beautiful

Sophie and Richard were fantastic throughout the whole wedding planning process. Right from the start, they were so flexible and let us chose exactly what we wanted for our wedding. Our menu and drinks were completely tailored to what we wanted and we were always confident that they would ensure we had the wedding of our dreams! Nothing was ever too much trouble!
On the day The Rydon Inn looked absolutely beautiful! We were so happy that the venue seemed to match our theme and colour scheme really well and everything looked great! Our guests enjoyed their arrival drinks in the garden overlooking the lake. The children loved being able to run around on the grass and everyone had a great time! Every single guest that came to our wedding has commented on the outstanding service we had during the meal and the rest of the day; people have specifically said it was like being in a 5 star hotel and that all the staff were very “switched on”. Also we have had so many comments on how nice the food was. Everybody loved it and the portion sizes were just right. A lot of our guests stayed in accommodation nearby and they liked the food so much they travelled to The Rydon Inn for all of their meals.
Overall, we cannot think of any faults! We would recommend The Rydon Inn to anyone looking for a wedding venue! Thank you Richard and Sophie!
