My Wife and I attended a friends wedding at the haycock last weekend and we had a great time.
The wedding was a complete success and I know that my friends will contact the hotel to pass on their thanks when they return from honeymoon.
We arrived at the hotel early on saturday morning as the ceremony was being held in the hotel as well as the reception. After checking into our beautiful room we had some tea and cakes in the lounge next to the open fire and could of easily stayed there all day, the service from the bar was very swift and very helpful. The lounge is in the old section of the hotel overlooking a courtyard. A very pretty area indeed.
The ceremony room which connected to the reception room looked fantastic, it was clear that a lot of time and effort had been put in to make the ballroom look so stunning. The ballroom is a large modern room with a huge bar. The bar staff were second to none, very friendly with great customer service skills, as a matter of fact we all ended up on first name terms, We were treated as regular customers who popped in for a drink regulary. The meal was gorgeous and the service was extremly professional, the head chef even came out of the kitchen after our desserts to speak to the bride and groom.
After the formalities my wife and I enjoyed several drinks while dancing the night away to a fantastic band, we then moved back through to the old part of the hotel were we enjoyed many more drinks, almost untill sunrise!
All in all it was a great weekend and a wonderful wedding. The haycock clearly are professionals when it comes to weddings, while making you feel that the wedding you are attending is the most important wedding there is. While checking out I passed on my thanks to the duty manager and informed him that my wife and I shall return in the future, and that is exactly what I will do.
