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

Read More

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.

Our wedding went very well and we had a wonderful day. The wedding package for 50 guests gave us exactly the type of wedding we were looking for at a price that we thought was good value. The events manager helped us to plan all the details in advance, and did a great job of keeping in touch with us

before the wedding, and decorating the room on the day. The food was all delicious and well received, and the chef took on board our comments for amending the kid's set menu slightly to cater for all the children at our wedding. The private outside space was fantastic for the breaks between the ceremony and the meal, and between the meal and the evening reception. All the children loved the swing and the grass to run around on, and the adults liked the seating area. All the staff at the hotel were very helpful and attentive on the wedding day (as well as the days before and after the wedding), and were available to act quickly on all our requests during the day.

All in all, a great venue for a wedding and definitely well recommended!

From our very first visit to view the venue, to check-out the morning after the big day, we could not fault the Lambert Hotel. Every single hope and expectation was met above and beyond our dreams. Megan, the Wedding Coordinator was so helpful, every little detail was attended to, all our endless

questions answered promptly and expertly. She even came in on the morning of her holiday to make sure all was as we wanted - what a star!! The food was superb, the menu we had chosen was from the wedding package, making our choices from the taster menu. We did have trouble choosing however, as everything was so delicious and extremely well presented. The chef did an exceptional job on the day as our speeches did go on a bit longer than we anticipated, he managed to get 50 meals out altogether, piping hot and the chicken was superb, we had lots of complementary comments from our guests. Even the fussy vegetarians were expertly catered for. The evening buffet was also beautifully presented, delicious and plentiful. All of the hotel staff were very attentive during the day, especially the duty manager who ensured that everything ran like clockwork and we were all where we were supposed to be at the right times. We also booked the house DJ, who was fantastic playing such a wide selection that he kept the dance floor full all evening. We would like to thank everybody at the Lambert Hotel for making our special day exceptionally memorable for us and our guests.

We couldn't be more grateful towards all of the staff at The Lambert for helping make our wedding truly special. From the moment we first viewed the venue to after the wedding, the time and care that was put in to helping us plan our day, we couldn't have asked for anymore. Thank you!

My husband and I had our wedding at the lambert hotel.

From the start nothing was to much trouble. We had fantastic communication from Chiara and she went above and beyond to make out day amazing.

just how fantastic the food was.

We even came down the next morning to everything from our wedding packed away for us.

My husband and I will certainly be back every year to celebrate our anniversary at this wonderful place.

Thank you again to every single person involved in our wedding it truly was the best day of our lives

We have recently got married at The Lambert Hotel (30 September 2016) and we had the most amazing day - we can't recommend the venue highly enough. Chiara their Wedding and Events Manager is absolutely amazing, she will go above and beyond to make sure everything goes without a 'hitch'. We didn't

have to worry about anything on the day as Chiara and the rest of the venue staff had it all under control. We found The Lambert Hotel to be great value for money after looking around at various different venues and packages. The food was absolutely fantastic, that goes for the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet - we have never heard so many compliments! It can sometimes be hard to cater for lots of people, but that wasn't a problem here at all, the food was delicious! We had a band for the evening reception who have since contacted us to say they were really well looked after by the venue. What is a real bonus as well, is the venue has a music license until 1am - so after the band left at midnight we were able to plug in our own iPod music for a further hour. I could not fault anything about the day and I would absolutely recommend you get in contact with the venue for a visit - you won't be disappointed!

We visited the Lambert Hotel as the first wedding venue we had seen. Not knowing what to expect, what to ask or what to look out for, within 5 minutes of arriving we knew that any other venue would have to be out of this world to compete. We left on cloud 9, and chose the Lambert having seen about 5

other venues that weekend.
From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome. There was never any pressure to pick on the spot, which we didn't get at every venue we saw.
The staff were always friendly and attentive, the venue has undergone some lovely decorative improvements and the food is just incredible! The rooms are large and clean, with comfortable beds. The courtyard area, with outdoor seating and tree swing, is a lovely space to enjoy the biggest day of your life.
Chiara, the Lambert's wedding and events coordinator, is just the most brilliant person to help plan your big day. She is always available for any questions. Her enthusiasm and desire to make our day exactly as we dreamt of made working with her a pleasure.
The food was simply stunning. The menu is wide ranging and has something for every taste. The wine is somewhat pricey, however is mostly award winning and selected to match their excellent food. We had some specific requirements with some of our guests, and the kitchen were able to meet all of those needs without any problem at all. We had some last minute alterations to numbers too, which was handled brilliantly. The whole experience was smooth, well organised and made really easy, because of the excellent staff.

The Lambert has recommended partners, such as a local florist, who was outstanding, delivering beautiful flowers on the day (Fullers Flowers in Princes Risborough). Can't comment on the DJ or photographer who works in the venue, as we sourced our own, having had no response to attempted contact with the DJ, and the photographer did not have the style of photo's we were looking for.
If you choose the Lambert, you will not be disappointed!

We have been in and out of the Lambert for the last week, organizing our wedding and visiting the numerous family members from all over the world who came to share our day with us and stayed there. In the lead up to the wedding, all of the staff were amazing, a whole year in the planning and they

Read More

couldn't have been more helpful! Especially Emma and Russell. All of our family loved staying there, the food and last minute giant meals were always so delicious and served impeccably. Even fussy eaters were catered for.

We decorated the room ourselves, with toddlers and young kids running around, and Russell organised food (pizza...yum) and made sure everything we needed was rushed through to us!

The night before the wedding I had food delivered to my room, a drink I didnt even know I needed, and all last minute things I hadn't even thought of had been sorted out. I couldn't ask for more! On the wedding morning we were surprised with champagne, all the people who needed to be with me were "gently" ushered to my room, it was perfect. The wedding day went off without a hitch, last minute fussy eater changes were made without any problems, and the whole day was a huge success. I would not have received that service anywhere else.

Russell and Emma were extremely professional, as were all of the staff, even doing an irish jig for me before I left for the wedding ceremony so I didn't cry and ruin all of my makeup. Thank you!!

If you are looking for somewhere to stay, or to have your next big event, I couldn't recommend the Lambert more. All of my family have said that if they ever have to come and stay in the area they wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thank you all so much!!

We held our wedding at The Lambert Arms, Aston Rowant on Saturday 14th September 2013. We were delighted with the planning and running of our special day. During our planning Clare was helpful and friendly. We were always made to feel special and nothing was too much trouble. I wanted a specific E

shaped table layout which they had not been asked to do before, and they worked this out with us to provide exactly what I wanted. Before the day we talked through all our requirements which were all confirmed with us by the operations team on the day just to make sure they knew exactly what we wanted. During the day the team were fabulous, no request was too much trouble and every detail was checked with us. The staging of the room was perfect for the ceremony, breakfast and evening and we all had a fantastic time. We had many comments about how good the food was from our guests. I would highly recommend The Lambert Arms. Thank you to the whole team for making our day so perfect.

We got married at the Lambert Arms in June this year. Clare ensured that the planning went smoothly and everything that needed to be organised was done in plenty of time. They were completely flexible with everything we wanted and were generally very helpful and accommodating. For example, we had

around 110 guests and were able to hire out the restaurant area on the day as well, to ensure we had enough space for everyone. The day itself went very smoothly thanks to the great team they have there and several of our guests commented on what a wonderful time they had. The food in particular was superb and definitely well above the standard you would normally expect at a wedding and it was great that so many of our guests could stay the night in their clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. The venue is lovely and enabled us to have the formal but casual wedding we were after. We would definitely recommend the Lambert Arms to anyone looking for somewhere to have their special day.

ready in one of the lovely clean rooms there. Manager on the day was Eddy and he was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and he was friendly and extremely calming, for a bride full of nerves. The ceremony was perfect and everything went to plan. The venue is beautiful; The Lambert Arms has been renovated and decorated to a high standard. It is very well kept, clean and tidy. The venue is situated in an ideal location, with easy access from the M40 and surrounded by fields and pretty country lanes, which make some beautiful photographs. We had drinks in the courtyard garden, wedding breakfast, followed by a disco and hog roast in the evening. All the staff were brilliant, ALL THE FOOD WAS EXCEPTIONAL and we had so many compliments from our guests. Everyone was catered for and we had such great menus to choose from. The children’s menu was great too and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The DJ was brilliant, and everyone had a great time on the dance floor. Many guests stayed in the accommodation that night and loved their very comfortable rooms. We too loved our room, very spacious with an amazing bathroom, we didn't want to leave! We couldn't fault any aspect of our Wedding day and can't thank all the staff enough. We highly recommend this venue.

We held our wedding at The Lambert Arms in August this year and we were just blown away with the service, food and support. We planned our wedding from New Zealand so it was quite a challenge but Clare at The Lambert helped me all the way and she was just amazing.

the hotel for the weekend and they all commented on how wonderful the service was and how beautiful and clean the rooms were.
On the day of the wedding the staff were incredible. Everything went off without a hitch which was, in large part, down to them.
The food at the wedding was just incredible, so much so my groom said it's the best dinner he's ever had! We also ate in the hotel restaurant the night before and the food there was just as amazing.
I would highly reccommend The Lambert Arms to any Bride and Groom out there looking for an all round venue.

Our wedding was on 6th sept 2013. We got married in a church then the reception at the Lambert arms. Me and my bridesmaids stayed there the night before and got ready there in the morning. The room was amazing, beautiful and clean.

the whole day nothing was too much trouble.
We didn't have a formal wedding breakfast as we got married at 4pm but had for a pig roast later in the evening. It was the tastiest pig roast ever!
Many of our guest commented on how lovely the reception was and we really couldn't have asked for more.
We chose the Lambert arms as we had been to Good weddings there before and we needed a venue with hotel rooms that could cater for children and elderly guests which they did amazingly.
Would highly recommend.

well looked after in the restaurant and bar. On our wedding day everything ran very smoothly and all the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Clare the wedding planner who ensured everyone knew the timings for the day. The food we got in our wedding package, canapes, three course dinner and evening buffet was all top quality and well presented. We used the DJ recommended by the venue who played all the tunes we requested (and a few others). The majority of our guests stayed at the hotel after the disco so they didn't have far to stagger to bed, everyone was more than happy with their rooms which are comfortable and decorated to a high standard. The day after the wedding we had the use of the function room again for breakfast with our guests that stayed at the hotel which was lovely. We highly recommended the Lambert Arms as a wedding venue.

My Husband and I cant thank the staff enough for making our day so special. I would highly recommend this venue for your wedding. Right from all the planning at the very beginning right up until the day the staff were so attentive and nothing was too much trouble, all those little detailed questions

were all answered and I was always put at ease with any bespoke queries I had. The whole day was seamless and all the staff were professional and friendly too. We had so many comments from all of our guests how much they enjoyed the day and we particularly had a lot of comments on how good the food was. I thought I would mention the food as this was written many times in our guest book!! Everything was taken care of on the day I had the most amazing time and a big part of that was the staff for making it so memorable. Finally...The one thing which I really like is the fact we can go back their for our wedding anniversaries, this makes it extra special for us.

From start to finish we experienced nothing but professionalism and high quality service from the staff at The Lambert Arms, nothing was too much trouble. The venue itself is outstanding; it is decorated in good neutral taste, well presented, clean and tidy. It always felt secluded, having our own

Read More

private bar and everything taking place in the same room, we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. They can accommodate for any number of guests, with a large room that can be split into two smaller rooms for a more intimate ceremony. There is a dance floor and space for a band/DJ in the evening and any other forms of entertainment you have organised yourself.

The food at The Lambert Arms is some of the best food we have ever had, it was so hard to chose our menu! They accommodated for guests with allergies, vegetarians and children. The grounds around the venue are ideal for photographs, with a courtyard (with some areas undercover), outside garden area and a country lane perfect for photographs with a car.

The location of the pub is excellent, just off the M40. We had guests traveling from all over the country so it was important we had a venue that was easily accessible from every direction. Our disabled guest was well accommodated for as the venue is all on one level, there was no stairs she needed to encounter.

We had a fantastic wedding day at The Lambert Arms and we couldn't have done it without the top class service from the staff, who were always happy to help. We couldn't fault anything with the venue, food or the day itself. We definitely recommend getting married at The Lambert Arms, if we could give it more than 5 stars, we would!

We had our Wedding Reception at the Lambert Arms following our wedding in Las Vegas. We had about 90 people coming and the service we received from everyone at the LA was exemplary. Nothing was too much trouble and everything we asked for was provided - the food was excellent (we had a buffet with

desserts) and we have had lots of lovely compliments on the food and the venue from our guests. We had some guests who were either vegetarian / dairy / gluten free and the LA provided a lovely selection of food - very impressive. Great inhouse disco - played all the songs we asked for and had everyone up boogieing.

A stress free reception from start to finish - would highly recommend Clare and Peter and the rest of the team.

The Lambert Arms venue and staff were exceptional in every way on the day of our reception. (29/12/12)

decided to make a last minute table layout change which the staff were only too happy to help with.

Our wedding banner was put up, our private bar staff were patient and polite, the food was on time and delicious and the chef even kept out 120 cup cakes cool in the kitchen ready for when our 7 tier cup cake wedding cake was unveiled.

1am wrapped up, after a brilliant party and staff were still polite and efficient while clearing up around the stragglers and we gladly rewarded all staff with a cupcake.

Peter and his team were professional to the end and I highly recommend the Lambert Arms, which all of our guests complimented as well.
