Isobel & John

From the moment we met with Stephanie and was shown around The Fisherman's Retreat we were hooked. No other place had come close to having what we wanted for our October wedding. Stephanie and her team could not do enough for us in the run up to our wedding and on our day. All our guests commented on what an amazing venue it was, how amazing the food was and how lovely the staff were from the moment our first guest arrived to the last guest leaving. We could not recommend Fisherman's Retreat enough. It offers something different and special without being too expensive. The whole team are friendly and welcoming. Our wedding was incredible and we cannot thank Stephanie and her team for all they did. Amazing!!!!!

The Fisherman's Retreat is a fabulous venue in beautiful surroundings. It was great to deal with a wedding planner that provided excellent customer service, giving advice and information where needed, and made us feel confident that the day would run smoothly, which it did, The staff have got it down to a fine art and the food was amazing. The feedback received from our guests has confirmed we made the right choice when booking this venue for my daughters wedding.

Mr & Mrs Andrews

We had our wedding here on Saturday 10th August and we were bowled away by everyone at the Fishermans- thank you so much! Stephanie, the wedding coordinator, was amazing throughout the entire planning of our wedding and nothing was too much trouble. Her organisation meant everything went so smoothly on the day despite the torrential downpours. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. So many of our guests said it was the best food that they had ever had at a wedding! It was an amazing day and we would like to thank everyone at Fisherman’s, especially Stephanie, for their hard work on the day to make this happen. We also stayed at the Luxury B&B after the wedding. It was amazing! Liz was so lovely and went above and beyond, from the moment of booking, to make sure we had a lovely stay. The breakfast, surroundings and room were so beautiful and we will 100% be staying again. Thank you!

Ollie & Chloe

The Fisherman's hosted our wedding last weekend. Stephanie, the wedding coordinator, was an amazing point of contact throughout the process of arranging everything - she was extremely helpful and made planning our day stress-free. The day itself was a huge success; Ol and I had the best time and our guests also enjoyed themselves immensely. All our guests complimented The Fisherman's for the setting, the amazing views, the atmosphere, the food (especially the food, which was simply stunning!) - basically the entire day was amazing! We'd like to thank you for helping us have the most perfect day!

My bridesmaids and I stayed at The Stables on the night before the wedding, and Ol and I stayed at The Stables on the night of the wedding. On the morning of the wedding, everything was calm and relaxed and myself and my bridesmaids had such a good time getting ready there. On the morning after the wedding Ol and I had the best start to married life thanks to an amazing breakfast cooked by our hosts, Liz and Hervey. Liz and Hervey were so helpful and ensured we had the perfect stay. We have also eaten out at the Fisherman's multiple times and have yet to have a bad meal! It is now one of our favourite places to eat. We would both happily recommend The Fisherman's Retreat as a wedding venue, and as a restaurant and we are unbelievably grateful that they helped make our wedding day so special.

Janine & Jonathan

We held our wedding at The Fisherman’s Retreat this summer (the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception) and had a wonderful day from start to finish. The wedding coordinator, Stephanie, knew our plans and wishes for the day inside out and we were amazed by her ability to keep everything running perfectly smoothly, from the set up of the rooms to managing the waiting staff, while being always on hand at a moment’s notice if we needed her.

The waiting staff were equally impressive – consistently warm, friendly and professional – and many of our guests commented on this. The drinks reception was served at 1.30pm and several of the same faces were still around well after midnight when my husband and I left, cheerfully helping us to find things and complimenting us on what a wonderful day it had been. We really felt that every staff member genuinely cared about our day being a success and went above and beyond in every area. We never once felt that we were “just another wedding,” or that anything was done half-heartedly. Throughout the day and in the weeks afterwards, we had countless guests commenting on how unique the venue was; the brilliant views; how quality and presentation of the food; and how friendly and professional the staff were.

On the morning of the wedding, my bridesmaids and I got ready at The Stables B&B, where Liz was always close by offering cups of tea, breakfast and even appearing at one point with a bottle of bubbly! She also came to the rescue with my last minute hair and dress crises, much to the relief of all of us On the wedding night, my husband and I stayed in the bridal suite, and my family stayed in the other two rooms. The rooms were clean and spacious and Liz willingly catered to everyone’s completely different breakfast requests. We never felt rushed or that anything was too much trouble. We wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend both The Fisherman’s and The Stables to anyone!

My husband and I had our wedding here in July 2018 and we were absolutely blown away by everything the place had to offer. From the moment we looked around, we knew it would be perfect for our wedding day. We loved the setting, the food, the rooms on offer, the dance floor and not to mention the hospitality!

Stephanie was so welcoming and helpful throughout the whole process and made the day itself completely stress-free. All the team were really friendly with excellent service provided throughout the whole day. Gary was on hand to help too throughout the process and made us feel really well looked after and welcome. So many of our guests have commented it was the best wedding they've been to. Well, we have to agree!! Amazing venue, food, service with incredibly lovely staff and a beautiful setting. What more could you want? The weather? Maybe but even with some rain, it makes for some stunning photographs!

Thank you again, Stephanie, Gary and all the team at The Fisherman's Retreat. You really did make our wedding day the best day of our lives.

Julie & John

We can't thank Stephanie, Garry and the rest of the team enough for the most perfect wedding we could have ever dreamed of! Right down to the tiniest details, nothing was too much trouble. We received so many compliments off our guests!

The rooms looked exceptional, all food was delicious and the service was impeccable. We had a couple of guests with special dietary requirements, and they were equally as impressed with the gluten free and vegetarian meals. It was remarked upon how they made a gluten-free version of the actual wedding meal, even down to the shortbread fingers accompanying the dessert!

We look forward to returning after our honeymoon!

Julie & John


I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you from myself, and on behalf of Becky and Chris, Becky's stepfather, Martin, and her grandparents, Sherry and Alan, for the superb service you

provided at every stage of Becky and Chris's wedding.

You were always relaxed and friendly, but super efficient, and your meticulous planning ensured that Becky and Chris's big day was as special as we all hoped it would be.

I cannot praise you and the rest of the team at The Fisherman's highly enough for the friendly and efficient service you all provided. Gary, the head barman, was such a delight!

The feedback from all our guests on the quality of the food, the service and the venue has been amazing, so thanks, once again to you all, and my compliments to the chef and his staff.

Abigail and David Sweeting

We had the best day of our lives on the 19 August – you, Garry and the team played a huge part of it.

It was so well organised, the food was a massive success, the drinks flowed, the staff were helpful and everyone had a great night – what more could we ask for?!

We will certainly be back for reminiscent meals in the future (please never take the deep fried brie off the menu!!).

Many thanks again!

Catherine & Adrian

We had no regrets in choosing the Fisherman's Retreat as our wedding venue. It is a spectacular location for photos and even inside our pictures came out well.


We had many comments from guests at how friendly the staff were and how well everyone was served together on each table. The food and wine was great and all manner of food allergies were accounted for. Having two rooms avoided the hassle of being made to move from a room to be cleared for the evening event which often happens at wedding.

We were clear what information we needed to provide to the wedding organiser at what point which meant the reception planning was as straightforward as possible. Moreover, the price was transparent and there weren't any hidden extras. We particularly appreciated the fact that the staff put our table decorations on the tables on the day. These little things made a big difference. Thanks to the team- we'd recommend you and we'll be back for a meal soon.
