My wife and I got married at Astley Bank last Friday and we had an amazing day and night from start to finish.. From booking our wedding last September to the May 27th wedding day we've enjoyed every minute of dealing with Astley Bank. They are very laid back, polite and easy to contact but they really upped the ante...

I was recently a wedding guest at this venue and I was so impressed. The staff took care if everything through the day and they were so helpful and friendly. The food was divine although the drinks were fairly expensive. On the other hand, whilst we didn't stay, I did see the rooms which were clean, spacious and quite pretty....

My daughter and son-in-law had their wedding reception here. All the staff were extremely helpful, and Jason, the master of ceremonies, helped to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere at the reception. The food was delicious and the portions generous. We stayed at the hotel that night and had a very comfortable room. Breakfast the next morning was also beautifully...

Great meal at a reasonable fixed price of £23. Of course plus any drinks. Lovely food relaxing settings with good staff. We have been here on our own, with friends and with family. All the visits where perfect. Good for birthdays. It has bedrooms if you wish to stay here. Is also good for business meetings.

A very stylish restaurant, lovely helpful staff and an amazing set menu with lots of choices for each course. Canapés, three courses, coffee/tea and homemade chocolates for only £23!! If you expect 'Masterchef' dining with a menu that changes every season you will not be disappointed. This was our second visit and it certainly will not be our last. 36...
