To All the staff of the Duke, On behalf of Scott and Charlotte, as well as all the guests whom attended their wedding on Saturday 15th February 2020, we would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to everyone at the hotel who helped make the day so memorable. We would like to make a special mention regarding Ida, as she went above and beyond to help make Scott and Charlotte's day special. All the guests have since commented how amazing the venue was including the quality of food and the overall level of service. Without any doubt, we will most certainly recommend the Duke of Marlborough to others. many Thanks, The Flanagan Family
