Just a selection of our reviews


I would like to say that everything was excellent. The room was just the right size for the numbers that we had and the catering was enjoyed by all.

Once again I would like to pass on my family’s thanks and that I have no hesitation in recommending the Royal Assembly Rooms.

A quick note to say a massive thank you for last night. From where we sat the whole evening went extremely smoothly, taking a lot of pressure from us.

The way everything was set out, particularly the entrance and Temple was perfect.

Please pass on our heartfelt thanks.

Thank you all so much. Everyone had a great night. The venue is lovely, the food was absolutely gorgeous and all the staff, including you, were brilliant. Can’t thank you all enough for helping to make it all possible.

If we don’t have any special birthdays before then I guess you’ll be seeing you all again at the wedding next year.

Thank you for the pictures and thank you also so much for all your help on the day and during the weeks leading up to it.

We had the most amazing time and all of our guests loved it.

The room looked spectacular and we all felt very welcomed and looked after by all the staff.

We will certainly be recommending the rooms to anyone looking for a wedding venue!

Best wishes,

Had our wedding here on a beautiful day in May 2016. Despite all my worries of cause Steve, Wendy, Tyrone and Bev were amazing (plus the rest of the staff).

The Temple is the perfect place to hold a ceremony and loved the regal feel.. All of our friends and family who had never been inside the building before were all pleasantly surprised.

We were able to play songs of our choice through the organ which was so personal to us, captured some beautiful photos both in and outside of the building. (Lots of parking for guests also)

Tyrone & his team who do the onsite catering were AMAZING. The amount of compliments we had on the food.. we went for something a little different tapas as our wedding breakfast and it was all delicious. The bar staff were fab and always someone there to serve… drinks were great prices too as many guests pointed out.

We had the most amazing day and a lot of that was due to everyone’s efforts at the Royal assembly Rooms to make sure everything ran smoothly and just the way we had planned. Would recommend this beautiful venue to anyone!

I was very impressed with the venue and with the service provided. They were great at making sure cups were tidied away, water jugs refilled etc and just generally making sure everything was running smoothly, especially with such a tight turnaround between the two sessions.  They were really helpful.

Sarah Goodson, NSBC 12/5/17


We really enjoyed the evening – the ambience of the Royal Assembly Rooms was enthralling to all. The facilities were also great – Changing, cloakroom, washroom toilets clean etc  and the bar service was fantastic too. Your liaison and cooperation was brilliant and helped us in carrying off the event as it did Saturday night.

We are truly indebted to all your help given

We truly could not recommend a venue more highly. Our wedding was the happiest day of our lives, to get married in such a beautiful setting and with the help, support and patience of Wendy and her team who made it a magical and unforgettable day! We were wonderfully looked after from the moment we enquired about the booking to after the day itself. Nothing was too much trouble and the professionalism and service shown was outstanding! I can’t speak highly enough of the all-round excellence of the venue and staff. All our thanks and love Amy & Ben McDonald X

To everyone at the Royal Assembly Rooms thank you so much for making our UK wedding reception such a memorable evening.

Wendy you are an absolute star and so organised! We did not have to worry about anything! Also a huge thank you to Tyrone for our lush food & Elaine, Graham on the bar and all the other staff.

Everyone commented on how lovely the venue was… it’s definitely worthy of the name ‘Royal’. Can also recommend DJ Ross who Wendy organised for us too.

Hi Wendy

Thanks to the Royal Assembly Rooms for a brilliant night on Saturday, the band and DJ were amazing!  Thank you for the lovely hamper too? I wonder if you have the contact details for the photographer who was there?

I left the hamper and a couple of raffle prizes behind the bar, I should be able to collect them tonight if Lodge is open.

Thanks again

Hi Wendy

We were married at The Royal Masonic Assembly rooms on Friday the 8th of September 2017. Our day was truly perfect. This lovely historic building was perfectly presented, and proved ideal as a venue for our special day. The decor is elegant and luxurious. The staff were very helpful, courteous and professional. The table service was faultless, and the food was excellent. We were guided every step of the way by Wendy, who proved invaluable in ensuring that no detail was neglected.

This beautiful, historic and romantic building, is without doubt the premier venue in this area where you can be married and celebrate afterwards.

I cannot praise the team and the facilities enough.

Many Thanks from Mr and Mrs McBride 15/10/17


Well where to begin. My wife and I held our wedding reception at the Royal Assembly Rooms in September and it was made by all the staff there the most memorable day ever. From the furnishings to the food everything was exactly what we hoped it would be.

I would highly recommend this venue to any one that requires first class service for any function.

Many thanks to Tyrone and his team in the kitchen. The bar staff. And special thanks must go to our wedding coordinator Wendy Takman.
