Friendly staff, great courses and lovely food, fantastic value for money and we did get a signal in our room. Been twice this year and friends we went with have been 5 times in the last year. Going back again in the spring worth the 2 hour drive.

Stayed here on 26th & 27th April as a family group. Couldn’t fault it. Beautiful large rooms, spectacular views across the golf course, food in the bar was reasonably priced and very good quality and breakfast was superb. Add to that, very professional, friendly staff and it made for a very pleasant couple of days.

Good Afternoon Emma, The wedding day was absolutely fantastic and it was with the help and knowledge of you and the whole team that our day was made so special. The amount of comments we have received about the hotel, the grounds, food and the way we were all treated have been nothing but complimentary. Would you please pass on our thanks to all the team, without them the day would not have been what it was. Thank you once again.

Gary & Steve May 2015

Hi Emma, I am emailing to say what a fantastic job you and your team did to make my daughters wedding such a lovely day. The food was superb and the service at dinner was excellent, it ran like a military operation. Our gluten free guest was delighted to have been given a lovely choice of food throughout the day which is always hard to find when she goes out to dine. Many were envious of the vegetarians meal choice which she said was delicious. Everyone went out of their way to make sure all guests were looked after. I would appreciate it if you could pass on our thanks to all involved, especially yourself, and the gentleman who looked after us during the day and evening, he also helped my husband and I load up the car on Monday. It was such a lovely touch ferrying our guests and children down to the green in the golf cart. Also many thanks to Sammy who was lovely and the shorter haired lady behind the bar who helped me on the morning itself. I will highly recommend Wensum Valley to anyone planning a future wedding and im sure we will be coming over regularly for lunch now that we have found you. All the guests were very impressed with everything.

A Edgeley May 2015

The Wedding was fantastic, very professional, amazing food, drinks weren’t too expensive and everyone had a fab time. Staff were brilliant so all in all we had a wonderful time. Thank you for all you hard work and efforts in making our Wedding Day so memorable.

Cassie & Craig Snailum 28/06/2014

I cannot praise highly enough the whole experience of the family wedding I attended at Wensum Valley. The stay was excellent, the food is good and the wedding coordinator could not do enough for us even though they were incredibly busy. We will be using the restaurant again in the near future and I will happily recommend “The Wensum Experience”.

We just wanted to say a big thank you, our day was amazing, we could not have asked for it to go any better. All the staff were so helpful and they really couldn’t do enough for us. I would recommend Wensum Valley to anyone, we were all so impressed! We could not have asked for a better service from the staff from start to finish in the planning and on the actual day. Nothing was too much trouble to organise from the menu down to the table decorations, all was taken care of by the staff taking the stress away from us on the build up and on the day. Gennie the Events Manager could not have been more helpful, accommodating anything we asked for and keeping in constant touch with us. The food was Excellent, with all dietary requirements being met and special menus for the fussy eaters. All in all we would highly recommend booking your special day here.

Kev Green – November 2017

Having eaten at most of the restaurants in the area my wife and i decided to give the Wensum Valley a try as most of the other place were booked up. What a pleasant surprise awaited us when we arrived on boxing day for lunch, we were shown to our table by a charming young lady, from then on everything was perfect, the waitresses, the man on the carvery, in fact every one involved in the day. The food was first class and a pleasant surprise a coffee and mince pie, what value for money! Last year we attended a close by country club, there is no comparison, we shall certainly be coming again and bringing all our friends along too. Thank you so much for a lovely day.

Mr & Mrs Symonds

This is a lovely hotel, golf, spa and country club with excellent staff and facilities – we couldn’t find fault with a thing. On our last evening before our club dinner we were entertained by a lovely singer who is the events manager at the hotel. This hotel is right up there with the best – Well done & Thank you.

Valerie & Michael Rosbotham 02/08/2014


Recently enjoyed a family birthday party in this spacious restaurant with wonderful panoramic views accross the Wensum Valley. The 30 or so guests enjoyed a wonderful meal with very attentive service. My young son has a limited range of foods that he likes but the restaurant gave him everything that he asked for and he ate it all!! We were not rushed and the whole event was perfect. We will certainly be back

Stephen Dix – January 2018

Thank you for your help in arranging and providing Wensum Valley as the venue for my 50th Birthday Party. We honestly couldn’t have hoped for anything better.
