The most amazing venue

We couldn’t be happier to have spent our wedding day at The Departure Lounge. If we were to do it all over again, we’d be back in a heartbeat. Absolutely everything was perfect.

The communication, help and advice from the moment we approached Simon for a quote was tip top. Nothing was ever too much of an ask and he made a busy (and potentially stressful) time so easy for us.

Simon and his team are genuinely nothing short of wonderful. Sophie and Tina were so lovely and helpful during the week we set up (and on the day!), and Jess and the lady behind the bar (whose name we sadly didn’t get) went above and beyond in the evening to make sure everything went smoothly and that our guests (and us) had the very best time. This was not lost on our friends and family (or our photographer)… so many people have commented on how great the team were.

The food was also absolutely amazing too. We had the Ploughman’s spread and the hog roast. Both were fantastic! Our guests have not stopped talking about the brie or the hog roast! The wine was delicious, and the bar very well stocked.

So many of our friends have been nervous in the run up to their weddings. We never, ever had that and that genuinely comes down to knowing that The Departure Lounge would do the most amazing job. It’s safe to say the team went on to exceed our expectations beyond measure!

We really did have the best day, and we will forever be grateful to The Departure Lounge

Perfect festival wedding

I can hand on heart say this venue made our wedding so amazing. Simon and team are so lovely and helpful. Nothing is too much. Food was amazing, the hog roast is not debatable GET IT. Simon even ended up organising our band too I actually didn’t have a clue what was happening after we picked it he just took control and sorted it all out. Loads of time to set up venue but the perk of not taking it down-luckily while you might have a sore head. Thank you once again xxx
