Situated at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, bordering Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Mercure Thame Lambert Hotel is perfect as your wedding venue and offers exceptional value for money with its wedding packages. The Lambert Hotel offers its own individual style and character, coupled with variety and flexibility for an unbeatable combination of quality, service and value for money and originality.

From the ceremony to the strains of a traditional welcoming the guests, to memorable photographs in spectacular settings, to stunning food and great entertainment. At The Lambert Hotel we provide that authentic wedding experience in a wonderful suite and surroundings with the capacity of up to 130 guests. At the hotel itself, you'll find beautiful gardens and a picturesque courtyard in the centre.

Mercure Thame Lambert Hotel is in a romantic setting and licensed for civil, religious and humanist ceremonies. We are delighted to host ceremonies up to 100 guests in our flexible wedding suites, the perfect spot where you can share your all-important vows with your nearest and dearest.

Our caring philosophy really comes into its own. Let us look after your special day, your every whim and need. Booking a wedding at The Lambert Hotel is not the customary frustrating experience, nor the anonymous transaction. All our friendly staff are there for you to ensure that from the time you call on us until the moment you leave our care, your wedding here in Oxfordshire is a memorable experience.

In our own inimitable style, every wedding at The Lambert Hotel is personal to you, different from preceding and succeeding ones – and great for your second one! - And also perhaps more importantly, different from the other and often fairly standardised offerings of the larger more commercial hotels.

A combination of unstinting and exacting standards of care and attention with an un-fussy style. A complete cocktail of celebration. We have listened to our guests and built an enviable reputation for genuine dedication to please.

Please call our dedicated Events team on 01844 351496 for available dates, and to arrange a personal visit to the hotel for a show around & discuss your requirements in detail.

When my husband and I were first looking at wedding venues The Lambert hotel stood out in terms of value as we had such a big wedding party. They have great packages and having ate at the hotel a few times we knew the food would be great and they didn't disappoint!

Megan was amazing and so

helpful on the lead up and would answer emails quickly, she made us feel at ease throughout the planning.

We decided to have the ceremony, breakfast and evening reception at the hotel. They have a lovely outside area for the drinks reception and we loved the fact we had a private bar area to ourselves. The staff on the day were so helpful and any issues were resolved quickly. It felt like they were very professional on the running of our day and it all ran smoothly. It was so nice to feel like you could just enjoy yourself and the team at the Lambert hotel had everything under control. I was also so impressed with how Megan set up our wedding breakfast room, I had a vision in my head and she did such a great job. The resident DJ was also great, we were worried he wouldn't play what we wanted but he played all of our requests and not a cheesy tune in sight!

I would recommend the Mercure Thame Lambert hotel to anyone for their wedding day, especially the hog roast option! Was delicious and so much food for everyone. Thank you so much for making sure our day was as enjoyable as it was.

I can’t thank all of the staff and especially Megan at the Mercure Lambert Hotel enough for making our wedding day so special!

During all the months leading up to the wedding we were in contact with mostly Megan who was amazing. We had so many questions and requests, but she was there to

quickly respond to all our emails and give helpful friendly advice for everything and put us at ease and made everything as stress free as she could! (As any bride planning a wedding this is definitely what you need!)

On the actual wedding day I couldn’t have wished for more, the day ran smoothly and all the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Since meeting with family and friends we have had so many comments on how fantastic the food was and that the whole day ran with ease and was so relaxed and enjoyable.

Thank you so much again. We look forward to returning on our One year Anniversary!

From the moment we first walked into the Lambert Hotel we felt relaxed & comfortable but also informed with the wedding pack which was offered to us at a wedding fair.
We instantly fell in love with the whole venue & the meal tasting was phenomenal!!
Megan was there every step of the way from the

moment I enquired for our date & also on the day too - we felt comfortable asking Megan anything & everything!
All the staff were friendly helpful & efficient!
It was so good to have guests able to stay & enjoy breakfast with them - there was also no rush to disappear. Nothing was too much effort for any part of it.
We want to do the whole day again & again as it went absolutely perfectly all thanks to the amazing staff but particularly Megan.
Thank you xx

The Lambert arm made for the perfect wedding day.
My Wife and I looked at several venues before coming to a Wedding Fair at the Lamber Arms Hotel but immediately fell in love with it and put down a deposit to secure our special day.
All the way through the planning, the wedding coordinator was

very supportive and helpful and was happy to accommodate our rather quirky and unique themes and ideas. Nothing was too crazy and we tailored the day perfectly to suit our desires. When it came to organising things like photographers and DJ’s etc. the wedding coordinator was able to make recommendations and help coordinate with them on the day.
We held our ceremony, wedding breakfast, and reception, all at the Lambert arm which made for a lovely easy day with hassle free transitions between each part. The function room was tastefully decorated which allowed for the addition of our own wedding decorations. The whole place looked amazing. In addition to the function room, there was a beautiful grassy courtyard for us and our guests to mingle and a little private bar which made it feel very exclusive and separated us from the rest of the hotel. The rooms in the hotel were really nice, my wife and I had the wedding suite which was huge and really nicely furnished with an enormous bath and shower. We were able to reserve rooms prior to the wedding to ensure our guests would be able to book rooms closer to the time and wouldn’t miss out.
On the night the staff were all lovely and made sure everything went to plan and were really accommodating when things overran. They ensured that all of our things were looked after away before and after the day and checked in with us regularly throughout to make sure we were happy and to ensure everything was going well.
The food was superb, we went for a meal tasting and knew the breakfast was going be well received, it made it hard to decide what options to suggest to our guest. Everybody loved the meal.
