What our customers say
We are so happy we chose the Duke of Marlborough for our wedding reception venue. Ida did a an amazing job prior to the wedding with answering all our questions and timely communication. She set our minds at ease about how things were to run on the day and provided us good advice about structuring our wedding reception. On the day everything flowed smoothly and worked well. The staff at the Duke on the night were very professional and many of our guests said what a great job they did. The food was amazing and we have received many compliments from our guests about how lovely the wedding was. We can not recommend the Duke highly enough, and I'm sure we'll be back for a visit soon.
