Sorry but the service was so slow and then the food was rubbish. Great starter and sweet but the mains roast beef, cold , frozen veg , rubber Yorkshire, not roasted potatoes.
When I left to get my car in car park, no lighting .
Somewhere I won’t return to

Lovely venue, close to M5 and Taunton. Easy parking, great facilities, lovely decor. The gardens are particularly nice, especially for photos (on a sunny day) .

PERFECT wedding venue
Aug. 2018 • Couples
We got married at Woodlands Castle on the 3rd August this year and honestly we could not have asked for a more amazing day! Holly who co-ordinated our wedding was FANTASTIC! We live in Bangkok and Holly was great at helping us organise from afar by email and was happy to meet at a time that suited us when we returned 5 weeks before the wedding. She guided us through the organising with professionalism but also a really relaxed and friendly approach. On the day, lots of our guests fed back how friendly the team was and how Holly and Julie helped with anything that was needed. They were great fun to have as part of the day and the morning of the wedding set up anything that was needed and took any stress that I may have had away. We were even able to set up the day before (as there was no wedding on) and had great fun doing so. The venue is incredible, our guests loved the setting and the evening fire pits were a big hit. The food was delicious and we loved the choice of reception drinks. I couldn't recommend it more. Our wedding day was perfect. Thank you! xx

Amazing venue, fabulous staff!
Jul. 2018 • Business
We hired the Garden Pavilion for a staff celebration and were thrilled with both the venue and the service we received. The pavilion was completely self-contained with its own bar and everyone was given a choice of cocktail on arrival. We had an informal barbecue and, thankfully, with the help of a hastily erected gazebo, not even a sharp summer downpour could put the dampeners on the party! The food was fantastic and the mix of both indoor and outdoor seating areas worked well. The staff were very helpful both during the planning stages and the party itself - it ensured the evening went without a hitch and a great time was had by all.

A perfect venue for a relaxed wedding day!
Jun. 2018 • Couples
We got married at Woodlands Castle in June, and we couldn't of wished for a better day, it was just perfect!

We booked the venue over 18 months before the wedding day, we were slightly unfortunate that we had 3 different wedding coordinators due to staff turnover and illness, so this caused some stress closer to the day with missing details, however Kamila was very organised and resolved all the issues very promptly for us.

The night before we were able to drop off all our decorations, flowers and outfits with the team and provided some instructions on where everything needed to be. On the day, it was all laid out exactly how we imagined and all looked perfect.

We had access to the house from 9am on the day for me and my bridesmaids to get ready. We were welcomed by continental breakfast and hot drinks for all of us, we went down very nicely as it was a few hours before the wedding breakfast. The staff left us to get ready which made us all feel very relaxed, right up until it was time to walk down the aisle.

On the day all the staff were very friendly right up until it was time to leave. Quite a few of guests mentioned on the bar staff being up for a good laugh.

The house and the gardens are beautiful, you could not fault it. It is all kept up together very well. We had many comments on how pretty and perfect it was. Would recommend this venue to any engaged couples if you are looking for a informal and relaxed wedding day!

Stunning Venue, fabulous team
Jun. 2018 • Business
What can I say, Woodlands Castle is one of the most beautiful wedding venues I've had the pleasure of working with. Everytime I arrive to set up a wedding cake I am taken back by the beauty of it. Well kept lawns, stunning flowers, clean, and well maintained. The staff are so helpful and nothing is ever too much trouble. I looked forward to my visits here.
It's one of the venue's I recommend to all couples I meet.
If your looking for a wedding venue then please make sure you book a viewing at Woodlands Castle. You definitely won't be disappointed.

We held our wedding here on Sunday 6th May 2018. From start to finish Abigail and the team couldn't do enough to make our day perfect. During the planning stages Abigail was accommodating to our requests and changes and provides load of options to make the day your own. All our guests were blown away by the beauty of the venue and the professional and friendly atmosphere of the day. The food and drink was fantastic and the venue provides plenty of different options for getting ready and for photos. We were so lucky to be able to have our ceremony on the outside veranda which looks amazing in our photos and videos.

I would highly recommend Woodlands Castle to any couples still looking for their dream venue!

Excellent location and food for a family event
Feb. 2018 • Family
I attended a wake here – a sit down buffet for 30 people. The food and drink was to a high standard (the nicest caramelised onion and cheese tarts I have tasted and decent tasting coffee) and a wide range of food (lots of different meats, porkpies, tarts, different breads, salads etc). The staff were really helpful, plentiful parking and just off the motorway. It was the perfect place for the occasion. Thank you
