I recently attended a wedding here and the venue was brilliant over the two days.
It's a beautifully restored building with lots of nooks and crannies. The staff were polite and friendly. The food served at the wedding was just superb, especially the fish soup which I thought was the highlight and I'm still thinking of it 4 weeks later. The day was mostly warn and sunny, and we took advantage of the beautiful grounds for a walk.
I had read the previous negative comments before I attended, and there was nothing in my experience that agreed with those other reviewers. Nothing wrong with the carpark - sure it's a small walk away from the main house - 150 feet? - and it has gravel, but I didn't see any "rubble". The food was brilliant, both on the day of the wedding, and the following day. Drink prices at the bar are more expensive that the local pub down the road - but nothing mad. I didn't stay at the venue, so I can't comment on anything else personally, but on asking the next day, nobody had any problems.
