A wedding with us at Old Ship comes with a personal connection which will remain right the way through the build up to your dig day and then on the day itself.
Mike and Justin O' Neill - Walker - 18th May
We have the most amazing fabulous wedding day, all the staff were amazing from front of house to bar staff.
The Events team have been amazing keeping us up to date with what was happening leading up to our big day & their customer service approach was excellent they both put us at ease.
Front of house on the desk was amazing also, they showed us round the first visit to The Old Ship & then remembered us when we spoke to them on the day when all the staff welcomed us as a married couple. My family where well looked after also & they loved The Old Ship Hotel as much as we did.
Many thanks all at the old ship we have had a fabulous amazing wedding day that would not have been from the help from all the staff to make it so special.
Love Mr & Mr O’Neill – Walker, VERY Happy Husbands

Nigel and Tracey - 24th December
We absolutely LOVED our wedding Day. We were so pleased with the cellars, the way it was decorated, the table, the attentiveness of the staff, the food, the massive and highly valued input from the events team, the wonderful room we spent 2 nights in and all the small touches such as the champagne and chocolates and the Christmas stocking on the bedroom door on Christmas morning! We couldn’t have asked for more.
We can commend the excellent service given to us leading up to and on the day of our wedding.
We feel the whole thing was perfect and can’t thank The Old Ship enough.
Paul and George - 3rd June
What a wonderful day!
The weather was just stunning, and the piper went down a treat and was very emotional and very appreciated by one and all especially the Scots. The service before and during all of the meal was exceptional and the staff were so attentive, swift, polite and professional. The food was beautiful, so lovely for it all to be hot! Every guest commented how good it was and the dessert was to die for. My vegetarian dish was delicious.
Please pass our gratitude to all concerned, the chef must have worked so hard but everyone. Also both George and I would like to say how truly amazing and wonderful Sammie was, she made myself and George, as well as my best man feel so much calmer and confident to continue. She was just incredible. An absolute credit to the hotel and would like you to ensure how much we loved her, what a lovely, sweet, professional young lady. We cannot thank everybody involved enough for making our very special day more special. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Where do I begin? I was filled with the absolute utmost love and joy on Friday and everything – EVERYTHING – your team did on the day was PERFECT. The team were absolutely amazing, any request or requirement, even if it came last minute, was taken care of with no qualms or squabbles. I mean I was asking them questions while they was busy setting a table and they remembered every point, did not miss a single thing! Took care of it all. As soon as they was done with one thing, they were straight onto the next. Everything that the Events Team did on the lead up turned out incredibly on the day and so to them, thank you, for taking so much care with the details, and for helping us get to where we were on Friday, having this incredible union of our loved ones…
When people say it was the best day of their life, it really doesn’t do justice to what we felt on Friday. It really surpassed any expectations. I’m so grateful to The Old Ship Hotel.
Jennifer and Graham
