A wonderful place to have Sunday lunch, afternoon tea, a romantic mini break and to get married! I’ve been a fair few times and will be going back. The food and grounds are amazing but it is the people there that makes East lodge so special.

From the moment I had set my eyes on this wedding venue, I just knew in my heart this was the place I was going to marry my husband. Everything about this place was just magical for me and all the staff were so very tentative, caring and always with a smile.

I arranged a family meal in a private room and my wife and I then spent the night in one of the four poster rooms. The whole experience was fabulous. The staff are exemplary, great food, great service, beautiful room with splendid views over the well kept grounds.
