Excellent wedding reception venue
Having got married in a nearby church, we had our wedding reception here in April 2015. The Winchester room accommodated our 75 sit down guests as well as an additional 25 guests and has it own stage (for live band/DJ), bar, toilets, entrance as well as a portion of the good sized beer garden. Plenty of hotels nearby but we stayed at the Marriott down the road.

Our overall experience was excellent, with guests commenting on how much they enjoyed the venue, the staff and especially the food (a buffet with a selection of dishes, but more formal options are available).

What really stood out for us though, was the helpfulness Ken and Kelly (at the turks head) and the extent to which they accommodated what we wanted while adding helpful suggestions on other ideas and their support throughout the wedding in ensuring things ran smoothly and ideas to improve the day for everyone.

Overall, exceeded expectations, and highly recommended for a wedding or any large event.

An amazing wedding venue
My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Turk’s Head on Friday the 7th of August 2015 and it could not have gone any better. It was a beautiful day made extra special by the venue which was perfect for what we were after.

The pub itself is large and spacious in a leafy part of St Margarets and has a lovely beer garden. The big selling point for us was The Winchester Room which is a very impressive space with private bar, toilets etc. The beauty of this room was that the double doors at the side open on to the rear of the beer garden and very close to the children’s play area which includes a giant slide and playhouse. As some of the guests included several children between 2 and 5 the play area was also a big selling point for us.

On the day itself any small doubts about the venue went totally out the window. The staff had been very helpful throughout especially Ken, Kellana and Sarah who couldn’t have been more accommodating. Ken & Kellana helped loads with the decoration and setting up the venue and when we arrived at the Winchester Room looked stunning with the tables and decorations. The food was great also with generous portions and all the guests were very complimentary. It was a beautiful, sunny day so as predicted the kids moved between the Winchester Room and the play area safely and the space worked perfectly for us.

After the speeches all the guests moved outside to the beer garden and the staff quickly removed all the tables. We spent the rest of the evening between the beer garden and The Winchester Room which now had a totally different atmosphere as we had booked a band and photo-booth.

Based on our experience I would definitely recommend The Turk’s Head as an excellent venue for a wedding reception. It has great facilities, it is very child friendly, great food and helpful staff who are extremely experienced at hosting evenings. We had such a good day there and I only wish we could experience it all over again.

AMAZING experience
We had our wedding reception at the Turks head on 1st August. What can we say? AMAZING experience - we were worried beforehand as we weren't able to set up until the day and we were worried we were all a bit last minute (we were having a sit down meal for 110!) but we needn't have, the team was simply superb and set it up so well. I have to say that Ken was just brilliant, so calm and reassuring in the run up and on the day was awesome. They hung all our lanterns for us in advance and accommodated all our needs. We've had loads and loads of positive comments about the delicious food, it was all served on time and was perfect. They also accommodated our DJ really well. The team do lots of weddings and know what works best, for example we had a cake and a cheese cake and they put them out in places us so that people all tucked in. The garden was great and the kids at the wedding loved it. We had a kids table which ken and the team really kindly fit it, and we have had comments that it was the best kid friendly wedding some people had been to given the playground area outside and kids menu. Honestly we can't express our gratitude to ken, Sarah and the team. we really recommend them for a fantastic wedding venue in richmond . Wish we could do if all again.
