The Silent Woman Inn


Information For The Silent Woman Inn

Nestled in the heart of Wareham Forest, The Silent Woman Inn is run by award winning Licensees Richard and Denise Bell. Beth, the Wedding Coordinator and Joe, the Chef, complete the senior Team.

Each wedding is planned with total deference to you, the couple getting married.


The choice of ceremony rooms provides a good way to personalise your day. The Silent Woman is a 700 year old building with all the character that the age entails. Our largest indoor ceremony room can hold up to 50 guests, whilst the smaller, more intimate room can hold up to 15. These rooms can be easily joined to hold 65. With their olde world charm, they are unrivalled in the area. For a winter Wedding, the log fires add extra magic. The rooms are intimate and can be arranged to make even the smallest parties feel as if they fill the room, whilst not being cramped if you have larger numbers.

You may decide that an outside ceremony is your heart's desire, which is where the gardens come into their own. With over 2000 flowering plants added annually to the well-established trees and shrubs, the gardens are a riot of colour throughout the summer months. Who could resist sitting in the sunshine to see loved ones get married, followed by a drinks reception on the lawn? If the weather on your day should be inclement, you will obviously have full use of our inside ceremony rooms.


Whether you want a full sit down meal, a barbeque or a buffet, all styles can be accommodated.

Every menu is designed around the wishes of the happy couple. Using only fresh, raw ingredients permits our Chef Joe and his team to cater for all dietary needs and special requests. A superb selection of wines, ales and soft drinks compliment your day.


Many Venues charge for hiring the walls, floors and gardens only. If you require furniture, crockery, glassware, cutlery, linens and staff these all come at an extra cost. We believe that to be a Wedding Venue the price should include everything necessary to host your special day. We also believe that, as a Wedding costs the Venue the same price to host whatever the day or time of year, that the Venue Hire Charge should not alter. We, therefore, do not increase our prices over a weekend or during the summer months.

We can also provide your Table Plan, on our bespoke window frames, Name cards, Personalised Drinks Tokens, Menu choice reminders cards for your guests, cake knife, cake stand, post box for your cards, sweet jars, bunting and many other decorations at no additional cost should you require them.
We are happy to decorate our Venue on the day using your decorations. At no time would we expect you, or your family and friends, to decorate the Venue on the morning of your Wedding or to clear up afterwards.

Your mission on the day is to enjoying getting yourself ready and then relax and have a thoroughly memorable time!
