Reviews

  • Helen

    We just wanted to take the time to let you know how happy we are that we got to have our wedding reception at the Lord Leycester. We love everything that the Lord Leycester is, and we are so pleased to know that the money for hiring the venue went back into such a good local cause. The Lord Leycester made a perfect and beautiful winter wedding venue. Our guests loved it!

  • Mother of Bride

    Wonderful place for a wedding. Daughter got married here this weekend. Absolutely stunning venue and they pulled out all the stops on the day. The Brothers are caring and friendly and the caretaker seemed to be everywhere making things happen. Fabulous place to have your photographs taken and everything went very smoothly - can highly recommend it as a venue.

  • Claudi and Matt

    Claudi and I would like to say a huge thank you for all of your collective efforts in making our day one we could only describe as 'magical'. ​Ourselves and our family and friends had the most amazing and memorable time at a special place and is something we will forever cherish.
