A great find!
I found the Lambert Arms on an advert in a local wedding magazine with an amazing deal on for their Romance Package.. I had to visit but I dubious, but I can honestly say that I was so pleasantly surprised! The venue is amazing and Megan the wedding manager is so helpful and supportive! Every time I visit I get more and more excited about having our big day here!

Absolutely perfect!
From the moment we got to the hotel the staff could not do enough to help us. They really went above and beyond to make it a really magical day under tricky circumstances. We cannot thank them enough for everything they did to help our day run smoothly. Special thanks to Megan of course for organising the wedding and guiding us through everything.

We had originally booked back in February using an offer they had for a minimum of 50 people and up to 100. This all changed of course but they were incredibly flexible and we only had to pay a little bit for the venue and payed per head for guests. This saved us a lot of money and left us with an intimate event that worked amazingly.

During the day they did everything they could to help it run smoothly and make it as enjoyable as possible. All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, even turning off power to part of the hotel to turn some lights off so we could take better pictures with sparklers.

The entire event went better than we could have imagined with all the restrictions in place currently so we can't thank them enough.

Thank you
Dear Craig, Emma, Russell & the team,

We just wanted to write and say what a fantastic job you did on our wedding day. You were all so organised, it made the evening run really smoothly and be totally stress free. The food was delicious, the room set up beautifully and all your staff were so polite, helpful and efficient that you gave our guests a truly special experience. Please also pass our thanks to Dickon who played every single track we'd requested, he was fab!

See you soon,
To and Danny x

I couldn't recommend the Lambert more
We have been in and out of the Lambert for the last week, organizing our wedding and visiting the numerous family members from all over the world who came to share our day with us and stayed there. In the lead up to the wedding, all of the staff were amazing, a whole year in the planning and they couldn't have been more helpful! Especially Emma and Russell. All of our family loved staying there, the food and last minute giant meals were always so delicious and served impeccably. Even fussy eaters were catered for.

We decorated the room ourselves, with toddlers and young kids running around, and Russell organised food (pizza...yum) and made sure everything we needed was rushed through to us!

The night before the wedding I had food delivered to my room, a drink I didnt even know I needed, and all last minute things I hadn't even thought of had been sorted out. I couldn't ask for more! On the wedding morning we were surprised with champagne, all the people who needed to be with me were "gently" ushered to my room, it was perfect. The wedding day went off without a hitch, last minute fussy eater changes were made without any problems, and the whole day was a huge success. I would not have received that service anywhere else.

Russell and Emma were extremely professional, as were all of the staff, even doing an irish jig for me before I left for the wedding ceremony so I didn't cry and ruin all of my makeup. Thank you!!

If you are looking for somewhere to stay, or to have your next big event, I couldn't recommend the Lambert more. All of my family have said that if they ever have to come and stay in the area they wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thank you all so much!!

I would absolutely recommend you get in contact with the venue for a visit - you won't be disappointed!
We have recently got married at The Lambert Hotel (30 September 2016) and we had the most amazing day - we can't recommend the venue highly enough. Chiara their Wedding and Events Manager is absolutely amazing, she will go above and beyond to make sure everything goes without a 'hitch'. We didn't have to worry about anything on the day as Chiara and the rest of the venue staff had it all under control. We found The Lambert Hotel to be great value for money after looking around at various different venues and packages. The food was absolutely fantastic, that goes for the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet - we have never heard so many compliments! It can sometimes be hard to cater for lots of people, but that wasn't a problem here at all, the food was delicious! We had a band for the evening reception who have since contacted us to say they were really well looked after by the venue. What is a real bonus as well, is the venue has a music license until 1am - so after the band left at midnight we were able to plug in our own iPod music for a further hour. I could not fault anything about the day and I would absolutely recommend you get in contact with the venue for a visit - you won't be disappointed!

Helping make our wedding truly special.
We couldn't be more grateful towards all of the staff at The Lambert for helping make our wedding truly special. From the moment we first viewed the venue to after the wedding, the time and care that was put in to helping us plan our day, we couldn't have asked for anymore. Thank you!

I couldn't rate them more highly
We held our wedding lunch and evening reception at Mercure Thame Lambert Hotel in June 2017 and were absolutely delighted with the service and attention to detail that went into our big day. The team were so helpful and put our minds at ease throughout all the planning and were on hand throughout the day and evening to help us with anything.

I couldn't rate them more highly
Thank you
