Full Description
Probably built as a Royal Hunting lodge and very much a stately home since the 16th century, Great Fosters is a Grade One listed building blessed with the grandeur of 16th century England and luxurious modern facilities. The romantic gardens provide an idyllic backdrop for photographs and the hotel has 43 bedrooms and is licensed for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies. The Tithe Barn, dating from 1390, accommodates up to 180 guests for a wedding breakfast whilst the Orangery, in the style of the eighteenth century, accommodates up to 80 guests. Food at Great Fosters is important to us whether we are catering for two or two hundred. We put the same emphasis on our wedding menus as we do for our restaurants and our talented kitchen brigade take great pride in creating dishes that not only look fabulous but also exceed your expectations on the taste front too. From your initial enquiry our experienced wedding co-ordinators will work with you to create the memorable day you have always imagined.

The lunch last week was amazing, everything was perfect! I had a really good response from everyone that attended, many said it was the best Christmas outing they had ever been too! We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you for all your help and assistance, especially the last-minute changes. Wishing you a lovely Christmas.

We all had a fabulous day with you at Great Foster
I am writing to thank the conference and banqueting team for looking after us so well yesterday, 5th December. I would personally like to thank, Sabin, Ada, John, Jose, Julian, Mollie, Lizzie and Harry. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and I was quite needy yesterday, all of them were professional, friendly and extremely helpful. I would also like to take this opportunity to apologise again to Jose for the rudeness of one of academics. There was no need for such rudeness and I am mortified by her behaviour. He was very gracious and said it’s part of the job. No, manners cost nothing and she clearly left hers at home! So once again I am very sorry. We all had a fabulous day with you at Great Fosters. The dinner was divine. Thank you also to Lucy, who I didn’t get to see yesterday but played a big part in arranging our day.
