“My husband and I had our wedding at Crouchers last year and it will be a day I’ll never forget. The level of service throughout planning to the actual day was brilliant. It was great to have the outside courtyard and fields to have drinks on after the ceremony and the food was amazing. All in all our special day ran so smoothly thanks to everyone at Crouchers. Would definitely recommend them!”
