Pilkingtons will always hold a very special place in our heart. We knew it was the perfect place for us the very first time we went there. It was the most perfect wedding location with classy decor, delicious food and great service from Vanessa and the team to match. They made the planning process a breeze and catered to all of our needs. Our guests loved everything about the day. We will be forever grateful for your hospitality and kindness on our most special day.

We got to do our wedding here and OMG its was absolutely wonderful!! Xanthe, Irina and Lynne were the best!! They kept us informed about any changes, had good communication and was very prompt at replying to our emails. On the day of our wedding I ran out of time to label the tables.. - but Irina and the staff found this out (didn't even mentioned it!!) and did it for us- they were a life saver!! The food here is to die for!! We had so many guests complimenting the dishes especially the duck :) I don't know too much about wines but I think they had a good selection of different price ranges to choose from. Lynne was like our wine lecturer :P she was so knowledgeable. The venue itself is beautiful - it's just so beautiful. Overall We love Pilkingtons, it had a relaxed atmosphere that we wanted for our wedding. We cannot stop complimenting the staff there. Thank you so much Pilkingtons, you made our wedding the most PERFECT and MEMORABLE NIGHT
