What They Say

  • Katherine and Ian Avery

    Freya and the team at Glenmore were brilliant!! Right from the moment we enquired they did everything they could to accommodate our requests and offered us some great ideas, like adding mini mince pies to our canapés and where to put candles in the bar. Their two main rooms are very different in style and I was a little worried about this to begin with but actually they perfectly reflected the character of the building. The main Elizabethan suite is perfect for the dinner (it's so beautiful) then the bar area suites the more fun side of weddings. Their policy of returning the cost of any unopened bottles of wine was great as we had about 5 unopened in the end. The value of Glenmore House as a venue was amazing, especially as the quality of service was never compromised and the food was brilliant. Our guests absolutely loved the food and I know they kept the bar staff busy, but no drink was too hard to accommodate. The staff were always friendly and on the day went out of their way to ensure my husband and I were well looked after. We had our own tray of canapés and personalised desserts!! With our 5th December wedding, Glenmore was perfect as we didn't really need any outdoor space – however Claremont Gardens opposite worked our great for our main photos. DJ John (recommended by Glenmore) - was great and accommodated almost all our requests (we had 60 as opposed to 40!). We didn't have to worry about any music during the reception. He gave us a CD at the end with all our tracks which we've been continuously playing since. This was so lovely! So to sum Glenmore House weddings can be everything you want and still be affordable!
  • Lucy & Stew

    Thank you to Freya and her team for our amazing wedding reception! Location is superb with many guests using Surbiton train station to get home or staying in one of the many hotels in Surbiton (leaving cars in secure car park at Glenmore). Food is also amazing - many of our guests said how tasty the dishes served were! The service delivered to us on the evening by Freya was absolutely outstanding and made it an evening which we both shall never forget. Thank you!
  • Ray Baxter

    Our daughter Lucy ( and Stewart ) held their wedding reception at Glenmore House on 26th July 2014 , I have to say it was a fantastic choice because everything from the quality of the food to the high level of service was simply outstanding , Freya and her team worked so hard and paid attention to ever piece of detail that was asked for ....the facilities of Glenmore House are terrific , the DJ John was also excellent….in conclusion ..if you are holding or thinking about using Glenmore House for your wedding reception ...I can 100% recommend this venue ....simply the best !!
  • Nicky & Mark Slater

    What can be said about Glenmore House? Back in the Summer 2012 I stumbled across Glenmore House on the Internet. I never then would have believed I could of so easily found the hidden gem that Glenmore House proved to be. We could never have dreamed that we could have found such a beautiful venue but that we did. My husband and I were Faye’s first official booking and we couldn't have asked for a more attentive, helpful and supportive wedding coordinator. Faye was always at the end of a phone answering any question or offering advice and was the support network every bride dreams of having. The food was amazing, which made our food tasting a little challenging, but enjoyed by all our guests on the day. The bar was well stocked, well-staffed and very reasonably priced and a welcome contrast to the stunning Elizabethan Suite which was the perfect room for our wedding breakfast and evening reception. The waiting staff, chefs and coordinators done the most amazing job all day ensuring that everyone was happy and well looked after. We have received nothing but praise for such a wonderful day and venue from our guests and we highly recommend this beautiful venue. Can't wait to book again for another special anniversary.
  • Mandie Duffin

    Just had our Daughter’s wedding here, absolutely amazing venue, with fantastic staff. Nothing was too much trouble. The wedding organisers, Freya & Faye, both a credit to Glenmore House. We booked venue 18 months in advance, they answered all our questions & always replied to emails, they were a pleasure to deal with. There is No charge to hire the venue, which is great now days, and even better, the bar is normal prices, not over-inflated hotel prices. The food was delicious, & service first class. The Manager Robert & one of the chefs Barry even gave Bride, Groom & us a lift over to hotel because it was raining. We would recommend Glenmore House to anyone thinking of getting married, or looking for a venue that will certainly impress family & friends. If you have a date in mind book early so you're not disappointed. Thank you again for making a special day, even more special. The Chamberlains & The Duffins.
  • Magda & Mark Pettman

    I would like to thank Faye, Robbie and everyone at Glenmore House for the most amazing day ever. It was a very stressful day from the beginning, I was running late but they stayed calm and collected, led me to the registrar interview and walked through every minute of the ceremony. Faye was always asking if everything was ok, but it was more than ok, it was perfect. I could not praise the chef enough, the food was a work of art, it looked beautiful and it tasted even better. I mean, it was like eating in a Michelin star restaurant, fantastic service and great looking and tasting food. Everything went smoothly, and the day was amazing. Robbie even drove my husband’s parents to the hotel, even though they were staying just down the road, that’s how thoughtful they are. Massive thank you to John Rahim, Glenmore’s recommended photographer. He was there from the beginning, was very calm and great at crowd control. I cannot wait to see the photos. Another massive thank you goes to John Brewer, venue’s photographer, who was absolutely amazing. Created a fantastic atmosphere during the meal with his background music. He played great songs, everyone loved the music, he also played every single song that our guests requested. Everything was just perfect and I could not recommend Glenmore House, John Rahim and John Brewer more. I would most definitely book Glenmore House, John Rahim and John Brewer for my next wedding 😉
  • Sophie and Chris

    We got married at Glenmore House a few weeks ago and we had an amazing day. The Glenmore team work so hard on many weddings and events but they always got back to us with answers to queries and accommodated site visits for my family to see the venue, which is so rare with many other venues. The value for money is absolutely brilliant, there really are no hidden extras, everything is included in the quote, which again is rare for a wedding venue of such high quality. Freya and the whole team always went above and beyond during planning and delivery of the day. We had an amazing wedding day, as did our guests. The food is so good, you get proper portions of delicious dishes. Our guests commented on how great the food was and there is a great choice of options to choose from. The Elizabethan Suite is beautiful, we had a winter wedding and hired Glenmore's candelabras which looked stunning. Freya personally oversaw every little detail of our day, which meant we could really enjoy our day. John the DJ who comes recommended by Glenmore was also fantastic, our dancefloor was packed all night with guests of all ages. We had a number of songs we wanted playing and this was no problem for John. He came and met with us a number of times and on the day itself, he was brilliant. We had the most perfect wedding day at Glenmore House and we cannot recommend the venue and team highly enough. Thank you so much to Freya and the team.
  • Kim & Jackie

    Faye, Jackie and I just wanted to thank you and your team for a fantastic day on the 29th November it could not have gone better and sorry I didn’t get to thank you in person on the Sunday when I came to settle the bar bill but understandably after such a late night you deserved a little lye in. Everyone commented on how wonderful Glenmore House was from the food down to the staff so we cannot thank you enough for making it a day that Jackie and I will both never forget for the rest of our lives. We cannot thank you enough for everything that you did for us. Take care……..and thank you Kim and Jackie
  • Martyn and Becky

    We held our wedding reception at Glenmore house on the 23/05/15. Faye was our coordinator. From start to finish she was helpful, professional, friendly and reliable at all times , she really understood what we wanted from our day and we got everything and more we could have wished for. Our guests were overwhelmed by the high standard of food and the service received from all members of staff on the day. The room set up looked stunning, We could not have been happier with our choice, our day was amazing thank you so much Faye and the team, Martyn and Becky
  • Mrs Barratt

    Thank you to all the Glenmore House Team for your care, consideration and efficiency which combined to produce such a happy and successful celebration for our daughter jennifer and her new husband Paddy on January 19th. From setting up prior to the wedding, throughout the whole event until staggering home time - the bar prices are amazing! - and not forgetting the help, the following morning, in seraching for the lost suit jacket, another family member picked it up and returned it! every single member of the team displayed the same efficiency and courtesy at every level. No one person stood out, you all did. Further, everybody agreed that the food and wine were superb. It was a truly memorable day. Thank You Glenmore House is brilliant as are their staff.
  • David & Charlotte Howe

    We fell in love with this venue from day one, as soon as we walked into the Elizabethan suite we had butterflies!! Freya and her team were absolutely amazing throughout the whole of our wedding experience. When it came to the big day on 8th December 2012 I had every faith that things would run smoothly and that is certainly what happened. All of our family and friends said what a lovely day it was and that the venue was perfect. The food, staff, atmosphere and general professionalism were all AMAZING. I will certainly be recommending Glenmore House as a place to celebrate whether it be a birthday, christening or wedding.
  • Greg & Emma

    What an amazing day and it was all down to the staff and Freya. Freya was remarkable, really professional and approachable. My family are still talking about are amazing day and the staff at Glenmore House. John the referred DJ knew exactly what we wanted and delivered. The food was delicious. you made are day - THANK YOU so much
  • David and Laura Hird

    Glenmore House really is the perfect wedding venue. Not only is it beautiful, with the gorgeous ceremony room and stunning Elizabethan suite, but Freya and the team made our wedding the most special stress free day we could have asked for. All the staff were all so friendly and helped everything run so smoothly. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and plenty of it! Also the crescent gardens opposite proved the perfect location for photos. Overall Glenmore House was amazing, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding venue. Thankyou!!!!!!
  • Tom & Jo

    Our wedding at Glenmore House was fantastic in every respect. Freya was a calm and reassuring presence during the planning and her and her team were fantastic on the day. The venue looked stunning, the food was delicious and we and all our guests had a great time. All at a reasonable price too!
  • Charlotte Lueken

    Thank you so much Freya and the team at Glenmore House! Our wedding was fantastic and the venue was perfect and affordable. We've had so many compliments about how great the food, service and venue was. Having crescent gardens a stone's throw away was also great for pictures! We can't thank them enough. Mr and Mrs Lueken.
  • John Gobey

    Thanks for most wonderful day on August 12th at our daughter Nicola and her new husband Mark Bentleys wedding. The period leading up to the big day is often fraught with minor panics and fears, from the moment we arrived until our departure, Rob you and your colleages made the day one which we will never forget. Absolutely nothing went wrong. You were all terrific. You may like to know everyone loved the beautiful building, easy parking, central location, haven't stopped praising the dinner, and likewise the evening guests are still talking about the quality of the buffet. The bar service was without a doubt the best we have ever encountered,and we know what we are talking about here! Everyone was impressed with the prices. we have no hesitation in recommending Glenmore to anyone desiring a friendly, but extremely professional service for any occasion. Once again thank you.
  • Francesca & Daniel Parker

    We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to get married and have our reception here. Freya and her team were so helpful and accommodating, everything went without any hiccups. The location was fab, my pics look lovely in the garden opposite. So many people commented a about how delicious the food was, I would defo recommend this to all my friends. Thanks so much 🙂 xx
  • Philip and Elodie

    Thank you to Freya and her team for making our day so special and unforgettable. such an attentive team very dedicated to their job. Perfect from start to finish. Also we highly recommend the amazing DJ John, who is not only a lovely lovely man but also knows how to get everyone on the dance floor. he tailored the playlist to suits our taste and even gave us the engraved CDs at the end as a souvenir! bless 🙂 glenmore thank you it was a dream wedding
  • Abi Dar

    We got married at Glenmore House on Saturday 17th August 2013. Everything was absolutely perfect from beginning to end. During the planning process Freya patiently answered our each and every query and was extremely helpful during the whole planning process. On the day, she and all the staff made everything run like clockwork so we didn't need to worry about a thing. The food was absolutely outstanding - all our guests commented on how delicious it was and everybody left empty plates. We also had quite a few dietary requirements and the kitchen dealt with these without fuss or complaint. The tasting evening was really enjoyable, it was great to meet other couples who were also getting married at Glenmore and also taste all the amazing food - it really was hard to choose our menu! The venue itself was perfect for us - it is somehow quirky and different and also beautiful. The ceremony room upstairs was one of the loveliest we saw when we were looking for a venue. It was also handy for some of our guests to be so near a mainline rail station. Don't let the lack of an outside area put you off - the park is great for photos and the rest of the venue is so lovely and varied you won't miss it. Cannot recommend this venue highly enough - amazing value for money, incredible food, unusual setting and outstanding staff who go the extra mile. Thank you so much - Abi & Cyrus Dar
  • Samantha & Iain Stalker

    We got married and had our reception at Glenmore House on 25th August. We cannot recommend this venue highly enough! The staff guided us through everything in the run up to the wedding and answered every question we had - big or small! On the day everything went so smoothly, we didn't have to worry about a thing. The food is amazing here (the tasting session is wonderful - though it is difficult to pick from the wide range as everything is so yummy!) - all our guests commented on it and we only saw empty plates. The prices are also very reasonable at Glenmore House which is a big plus, but nothing is compromised at all. The sun was shining for us and we had photos in the park across from the venue, we also had a car and took a short drive to the river for some additional photos. Guests congregated outside the Elizabethan suite to enjoy the sunshine as well. The venue itself is stunning, both the ceremony room and Elizabethan suite are so grand and unlike any other venue we looked at. The bar area is very spacious and also allows you to have different music in two areas in the evening, as well as providing space for photo booths and musicians. Overall we had the most amazing day, everything was perfect and would recommend Glenmore House to everyone!
  • Louise & Craig Whiting

    We cannot thank Freya & her team at Glenmore house enough for helping to give us the wedding of our dreams! We were made to feel so welcome & special by everyone who worked at Glenmore House, the food was just outstanding for such an affordable menu, the service the staff provided was impeccable & everything request we made was met without fuss or questioning! All our guests said it was the best food & wedding they had ever experienced & that has so much to do with such a beautiful venue staffed with people who care!! It was the perfect day & we wouldn't change a thing! You made our dreams a reality and we cannot thank you enough!
  • Jen and Paddy

    Finding an affordable reception venue in the London area is very difficult so when we visited Glenmore House we couldn't believe our luck. It was exactly what we were looking for and significantly cheaper than anywhere else we'd looked at. Freya was extremely helpful from our first visit and all staff on the day (and the day after) were friendly and welcoming, accommodating individual requests without fuss. When snow prevented a number of our guests attending they happily removed a table and adjusted the seating plan when we informed them on arrival at the reception. They also sorted out last minute food requests without any fuss. The wide range of wines they offer are reasonably priced and offered on a sale or return basis and the bar choice is extensive and priced lower than most pubs. Choosing our menu from the wide range of dishes available was difficult but the included tasting definitely helped! The portions are extremely generous and several people have told us it was the best food they’ve had at a wedding. We can’t thank Glenmore House staff enough for helping us hold a brilliant reception; we even got a lift to our hotel from one of the managers to top it off!

We wanted somewhere that looked great but that wouldn't break the bank and we were delighted to find that Glenmore House ticked all the boxes.From the moment we arrived at Glenmore House for a viewing, everyone was so friendly and welcoming and the Suite was beautiful and looked very grand, especially with the balconies and fairy lights. Our Wedding Coordinator was a great point of contact and bless her, she didn't mind the constant bombardment of emails and questions in the run up to the wedding.The choice of food was incredible and beautifully presented. All our guests commented on how great the food was and how friendly the banqueting staff were on the day. They bent over backwards to ensure we had the most magical of wedding days!
