Incredible staff, wonderful venue, superbly managed.

Hook Norton Brewery really is the most incredible place to have a wedding. From our first meeting with the team, we knew that it would be an ideal location and complemented by excellent organisation. Sophie and the team’s management and communication were perfect throughout the entire process, giving us great confidence that everything would go smoothly. They were able to accommodate our different requests and worked tirelessly to ensure everything was perfect for us.


Aside from how efficient the whole team are, they are also a really lovely and approachable team and it was a real pleasure to spend time with them on the day and the day beforehand. Our wedding day and the entirety of its planning was perfect, in no small part down to the fantastic staff at the Brewery. We couldn’t recommend Hook Norton Brewery enough as a place to get married.

The Perfect Day!!

What a wonderful place for a wedding!! From the moment we arrived with the bride we were made to feel so welcome. A beautiful room for the bridal party to get ready.
The ceremony room was beautiful! Following this we had the most delicious canapés!
The brewery tour was a lot of fun with Ros as an incredible guide! Such a lovely touch during the day!
The wedding breakfast followed with the most incredible food!! Pie and mash followed by the most delicious sticky toffee pudding! The waiting team were fabulous and very smiley and helpful.
The evening room was set out perfectly for the Dancing to begin!
There was a great atmosphere and it was lovely to have an outdoor seating area with a heater.

Thank you for helping to make Louisa and Andrew’s day so special! A perfect day that we will treasure for a long time!

The perfect venue!

Hook Norton Brewery was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. From the initial planning to the big day itself, the team did a fantastic job looking after us and our guests. They did everything they could in order to make our day run smoothly with faultless and attentive service, smiles and happiness. We can’t thank them enough for all of their hard work!

Our family and friends loved the unique venue, and we’re gushing with compliments about the food, especially the canapés! The wonderful Shire Horses were also a huge hit and they even enjoyed a bucket of beer with us!

We chose to have canapés, followed by chicken supreme with seasonal vegetables and the famous Old Hooky sticky toffee pudding for dessert, all of which was super tasty!

It certainly was a day to remember, thank you team Hooky! X

Our daughter recently got married at Hook Norton Brewery and it was a well organised beautiful day and everything that the bride and groom wished for. From the moment that they decided on the venue they had the help of Sophie, the wedding co-ordinator. Sophie was excellent and did everything that she could to help my daughter and son-in-law with whatever requests they had. It was also encouraging for us to see our daughter calm and relaxed organising the wedding to know that she had Sophie’s help.

The canapes on arrival were delicious and the wedding breakfast of Steak and Hooky pie, mash, red cabbage and other veg came out hot and very tasty. This was followed by sticky toffee pudding and coffee. The wines chosen were very good quality and there was a lot of Hooky beer drunk by the male guests!! This was followed in the evening by a hog roast and ensured that none of the guests went home hungry!!

They decided on the brewery as they wanted a relaxed wedding venue and they found this with Hook Norton. The brewery building is interesting and quite quirky set in a beautiful Cotswolds village. We paid for the shire horses to be present, and this was definitely money well spent. The guests enjoyed seeing them and they made the day more memorable for everyone who attended.

The staff at the brewery were all lovely and friendly and we cannot thank them and Sophie enough for giving our daughter and son in law the perfect wedding day.

My Husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at Hook Norton Brewery in October 2021. From the initial planning stages to the wedding day itself we were blown away with the organisation and the level of detail the team went to in order to make our day extra special.
We had so many complements from all our guests on how original and quirky the venue is. We fell in love with it from our first time visiting, especially after sampling their Steak and Old Hooky pie and mash which was a must for our wedding breakfast!
We had the flexibility to really put our own personal stamp on the day and with the support of the wonderful Sophie we were able to bring everything together, they even coordinated my arrival to the venue on the back of the dray, pulled by the Hook Norton Shire Horses.
We honestly cannot thank the team enough for everything they did to make our day so memorable, we loved every second!
