Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

My wife and I were kindly invited to very close friends daughters wedding reception, at the south causey inn. This visit could not have been any better. The Staff were excellent. The rooms really good. The food and drink excellent. Would have no hesitation in returning. If anyone thinking of going. GO!!

I recently stayed here overnight for a friends wedding. I was really impressed with the entire trip, from the standard of the room to the breakfast the next morning.
The wedding itself was fantastic! The staff were friendly and attentive and the grounds were picturesque and well maintained.
I have visited previously for Sunday Lunch and have never been disappointed with the quality of food and the wedding breakfast was no exception.
Will definitely be returning.

Stayed here recently as wedding guests and cannot recommend it highly enough. It is quintessentially English, and nothing has been left out. Set in a beautifully kept gardens with manicured lawns, this hotel comes complete with its own donkey's, lama, horses and a whole plethora of birds - including a very angry, yet entertaining, Duck!!!! The staff could not have tried harder to please us and were very welcoming and friendly at all times. We were shown to our room which was very nice and comfortable. Fresh orange juice, iced water and cookies were waiting for us on our arrival - very nice!! Particularly impressed with the Egyptian bed linen (on a huge bed) and the shower was perfect. Breakfast was totally fuss-free and had everything you needed to set you up for the day - delicious! Will definitely return some day.

Room Tip: Room 26 has a very large Jacuzzi bath! We stayed in the courtyard and it was very peaceful.

We stayed here as a couple for one night. Our stay room and breakfast was complimentary as part of our wedding package from last year (One nights stay on your 1 year anniversary).
We were completely 100% satisfied with our stay!

The room was great, comfortable, clean, over looking the beautiful beamish view and gardens with bottled still and sparking water, tea, coffee and hot chocolate facilities, cookies and cakes. Two glasses of OJ (which we promptly added our champagne too!!) Bathroom was modern, functional and perfectly clean.

We ate in the restaurant with out needing to book, staff were attentive and friendly. I ate the vegetarian lasagne and my husband had the local sausages and mash. Both came with side dishes however these were left untouched as the main meal portions were huge! Food was tasty, hot and there was plenty of choice. We also squeezed in a desert (chocolate dime bar cake) again this was amazing!!

We then moved into the bar were the selection of drinks was staggering, any spirit and mixer you could possibly think of and a fantastic range of ciders, lagers and wonderful real ales. The bar is super comfortable with big welcoming arm chairs and a beautiful wood fire in the centre of the room.

The Inn is set in a beautiful rural spot with fantastic gardens and a lovely little selection of animals (ducks, geese, donkeys, sheep, horses, alpacas!) We had a wonderful little stroll to stretch the legs around the gardens and farm yards in the sunshine- very peaceful and relaxing.

The staff and in particular the mangers make this place a real gem. Everyone we met was friendly, helpful and very accommodating. Nothing seemed too much trouble and they all seemed to work really hard and take pride in their work. The South Causey is a real credit to everyone working here, an absolutely wonderful place.

Nearly forgot to mention the pub dogs! A very friendly and well behaved labrador and little dachshund, sleeping contently in the reception area. Just add to the country, homely feel of the place.

A fantastic country Pub/ Restaurant/ Venue/ Inn. Would recommend 100%.

Room Tip: We stayed in an internal room and it was lovely!

This place is a real find - the staff are amazing & friendly & nothing is too much trouble. The attention to detail, quality (& quantity) of food was superb. We had gorgeous comfy beds & lovely little details & thoughtful touches in our rooms. Can't wait to go back - it really is a gem!

I have never wrote a review b4 on here but thought I would because I feel the South Causey Inn and more so the staff deserve credit !!

We decided last year to choose the South Causey Inn to be our Wedding Venue .
We set our date for the 16th of May 2014 and the help and advise we were given along the way from Susan and Katie , Clare and the other "blonde" lass was spot on.
I was stressed out for most of the time with the planning and organising but the staff at the South Causey Inn chilled me out abit , they know exactly what they are doing .
They made me and my partner feel reassured and left us feeling confident .

Come the big day , everything went smooth thanks to Clare our Wedding coordinator .
I want to say that she done a lot more for us than what shes probably supposed to do and I am very grateful for the extra help and support "cheers" :)
Our guests were impressed with all aspects of the day and evening . Food was awesome , (prawns) out of this world .
Kitchen staff and waiting staff also need a mention .
I asked for an extra surprise for my new mother in law in the form of a funny shaped dessert .
The staff joined in with the humour and we all had a good laugh together .

The hotel and grounds were in excellent condition , clean , fresh and disabled friendly .
We had guests invited who owned Motorhomes and the were kindly allowed to pitch up free of charge .
Extra thanks for that .

Our room the bridal sweet was awesome more than what we expected .

I really can't thank everyone enough at the South Causey Inn who played apart in our wedding day .

All in all this is a brilliant venue to have your wedding or even to spend a weekend break here .

Thanks very much - already looking forward to spending our 1st anniversary together at the South Causey Inn .
Cheers Dickie Drummond
