Excellent from start to finish. Sian was fantastic with helping us organise our day and the whole thing went like clockwork. All the guests commented on the service from all staff and quality of the food. Only down side was the day went too quick.
Many thanks Peter & Katie

Thank you for all your help throughout the process of planning the wedding. We appreciate it so much.

If you could pass on our thanks to Shaun as he was amazing the whole day. Making sure we were okay and had everything we needed. Even down to telling us what route to take to get to the top

Michael and I just wanted to thank you all so much for a fab day on the 25th November. From the moment I checked in on the Friday to when we checked out on the Monday, every single member of staff was so kind and couldn’t do enough for us.

A big thanks to Carl for looking after us during our

pre wedding dinner on the Friday night and then Shaun and his team on the Saturday. The professionalism of Old Inn staff is incredible and they all made us both feel so special.

It was a truly unforgettable day and we honestly couldn’t recommend The Old Inn enough as a wedding venue.

It’s become a very special place to us and we will never forget the memories that we made with our nearest and dearest. We now can’t wait to get back for a night (hopefully) over the Christmas/new year period.

Thanks again to you Sian for all your help in the run up to the day, I’m sure I was a torture for you but you really couldn’t do enough for me and I really appreciate it.

I really hope the management realise what great staff they have!

Got married on 4th August. Could not fault the staff one bit. So polite & helpful throughout. Shaun our Master of Ceremonies was outstanding, could not have done any more for us. Made our day! Highly recommend the hotel as a reception venue hands down

Superb! We had our wedding here on Saturday and it could not have been anymore perfect. Most of our guests stayed at the hotel and couldn't fault it! Every single staff member went over and above to make our day absolutley incredible. The food was beautiful which isn't always the case when you have

big groups. All the pre planning was so easy with the team doing all they could to help us organise from the mainland. I couldn't recommend it more! Absolutley wonderful.

We had our wedding in the Old Inn on 2nd November 2015 and we had a great day! In the lead up to the wedding our wedding consultant - Kerry couldn't have been any nicer, supportive or accommodating, she made the whole planning experience as stress free as she possibly could. On the actual day

wedding co-ordinator was fantastic. He was always available and spent the whole day making sure that everything was perfect and that anything we needed was provided for us. The ceremony was held in the gallery and it was a prefect venue and the Verina Room where the reception was held was fantastic! The food was amazing and the service was superb! It really was the perfect venue for our big day! The only down point of the day was when the cot for my daughter had not been put into my parents room for us. My best man and parents had to swap rooms and on top of all the expense that I had already went to, I had to fork out another £25 for the cot despite my protestations. I definitely think that more could have been done to accommodate my daughter and myself but that was all in all a small blip (albeit one that I will definitely remember) on an otherwise fantastic day.

We were married on 23 October 2015, and we couldn't fault the Old Inn in any way.

They were available for appointments leading up to the wedding, always at times that suited us, listened to all of our (many) details of what we wanted for our day and catered to them all. One thing that impressed

Read More

me was that we had several changes about a week before the wedding and it was no problem to both the wedding staff and reception staff to help us with this. All of our guests rooms and the bridal suit were so nice & homely and had everything we needed.

The wedding day was perfect, every single detail was carried out as we had requested and as a result of this the whole day went without a hitch. The Old Inn has a Master of Ceremonies called Sean and he is brilliant, he knows all of your details and timings and is there with you throughout the whole day letting you know what's next and making sure you are happy and everything is running smoothly, we don't think our wedding would of been the same without his help.

We eat in the Old Inn restaurant quite regularly and have never had a bad meal, this was one of the main reasons that we had picked the Old Inn, and on our big day, yet again, they did not disappoint, everyone got the correct meal that they had picked, the food was outstanding and after the wedding one of the things that all of our guests were actually talking about was how amazing the food was, not only for the main meal but for our evening reception hot buffet and the breakfast.

Reasons to chose the Old Inn... all of the above, plus they have a spiral staircase and huge chandelier (which is amazing for photographs), a private room just above the function room so guests don't have to go far for the evening turnover, a private cottage for the bridal suite and you can choose low lighting to match your colour scheme which looks amazing, and you wont get better food, staff or atmosphere than the Old Inn.

Many thanks to the Old Inn for making our day so amazing!

We had our wedding here on the 18th August 2015. We chose here because of past experiences with dining; the food was always great and the atmosphere was always relaxed. From start to finish the service was exceptional, we were felt at ease at making decisions and received great advice during our

decision making! The refurbishment on the room was astonishing! The new chandelier and mirrored walls really made it feel very special and unique. Staff were very accommodating when we were adding extra items to the room and the set up of the room was fantastic on the day. The food was not a let down, the honey roast ham was especially great. Catering for those who had allergies wasn't a problem either which was great as we had various people who needed special options. The room was very clean and in keeping with the whole theme of the inn. We couldn't give it a higher recommendation for those wishing to choose a place with good food, great staff, a relaxing atmosphere and breath taking scenery.

I am writing this review from our lovely honeymoon in Florence.
We had our wedding reception at the old inn just last Tuesday, 17th of November. The date was significant for us as it was the 2nd anniversary of our first date.
We got engaged in mid August so had 13 weeks to organise our day.
No

problem for the fantastic team at the old inn, from our first visit, to the day itself the banqueting team kept on top of all the details and helped us with all the little decisions, nothing was too much trouble.
Our wedding day was rainy from the start but the cosy fires at the old inn warmed us up and gave us loads of picture opportunities.
The Verina suite with its sweeping staircase was stunning and the food was on time, hot and gorgeous, My hubby's only complaint was that the waiting staff took the portions of potatoes away from the top table-before he had managed to help himself to another portion.
I would recommend the old inn to anyone who is planning a wedding, the accommodation, food and especially the staff were amazing and we loved our special day there
If I had to do it all again I wouldn't change a thing.
Thank you to the whole banqueting team for making our day unforgettable.
Amanda and Robert.

Got married here on 4th November. The day couldn't have been more perfect. From the outset the wedding co-ordinator Kerry made sure that the day was exactly how we wanted it and Shaun, the duty manager kept everything running smoothly and in order on the day.
The Verina suite, which was

refurbished earlier this year looked absolutely amazing.
The food served at our meal was lovely and perfectly cooked and seasoned. We also had a couple of vegans and vegetarians as guests who were also well catered for.
Stayed in the cottage suite on our wedding night, cosy and full of character. Most of my relatives had to come over from Scotland for our wedding so we're staying here too and they all thought it was a wonderful venue.
We definitely thought that we couldn't have picked a better venue for our wedding and would definitely recommend The Old Inn to anyone considering getting married there.
We will definitely be returning for a meal every now and then since we only live a few miles down the road.
Many thanks

We absolutely loved everything about our special day. When we to visit the old inn way back in 2013 we were made to feel so welcome the wedding coordinator at the time talked through everything with us and worked alongside us in the way we wanted our special day to be and for us the day could not

have been better from the moment we arrived and we were greeted by Shaun he made sure everything was how we wanted it he took the time to take us downstairs to make sure everything was laid out as it we wanted it throughout the evening he kept making sure both me and Adam and all our guests and he went out of his way to make sure everyone had what they wanted and more at the evening we had more guests than expected and yes downstairs was packed but again the staff tried to accommodate everyone with seating we can't thank you all enough. The day was amazing from start to finish. I'm so glad we chose the old inn everyone commented on the food and how lovely it was every single one of our guests enjoyed the food. Thank you again we hope to be back.

This was the venue of my wedding on 7th Nov 2015 and I have to say the staff at The Old Inn surpassed my (very high ) expectations of them. From my initial contact with Gavin who showed us around the venue, to Kerry in Event management who answered every single one of my copious emails and calls

Read More

with good grace and extensive knowledge, to Sean who ensured that the day itself ran smoothly from start to finish; my husband and I believe that our day was perfect! We had no stress at all and every guest agrees that the food was delicious, the staff were so helpful and that the wedding venue was the most beautiful they had ever seen. We are extremely grateful to each and every member of staff who helped make our day so perfect and we would recommend The Old Inn to anyone. :-)

We had a fabulous wedding reception at the Old Inn Crawfordsburn on 17th October 2015. The wedding planners were very helpful and thorough from beginning to end. We are currently living in England but that wasn't a problem for the Old Inn as they were flexible with meeting times and answered any

Read More

queries we had promptly via email or phone calls.

Quite a few of our guests came over from England and were really pleased with the rooms they had for their stay, they thought the atmosphere of the Inn was great and enjoyed all the meals they had!

On the day itself, the Verina Suite was set up beautifully and the Master of Ceremonies (Shaun) was very attentive to both us and our guests. He kept us informed every step of the way as to what we should expect to happen next, the whole day went like clockwork and the food was delicious.

We would have no qualms about recommending the Old Inn to any couples who are considering holding their wedding reception there as all our guests (and us!) had a great day!


on Wed, 11th of November, 2015
The Crawfordsburn gave us the most perfect day. Loved the way they were very traditional about announcing the bride and grooms entrances, really put us on a pedestal. Felt our numbers of 90 was ideal for the size of the room. All our guests thought the food was delicious and abundant. I was feeling

slightly unwell on the day so a little more heat would have been welcome but I think everyone else was warm enough. Many thanks

As a venue I cannot recommend the Old Inn enough, great food, great staff, beautiful surroundings and they really care that you have a good stress free day.

There are not enough nice words to describe this as a venue- throughout the process of viewing, booking, planning and on the day itself, my

Read More

husband and I had support and advice from everyone at the old inn- nothing was too much trouble and every person I spoke to was so so helpful.

Every aspect of the venue has been positively commented on by one or other of our guests, the beautiful table decorations, how relaxed and laid back everyone was, how the day flowed perfectly, how the food (especially) was amazing (we paid a little extra to have the rack of lamb which was delicious and perfectly cooked to be pink in the middle)- those guests who stayed also loved the accommodation (great beds, wonderful breakfast) and how accommodating the staff were.

We stayed in the cottage bridal suite, I would definitely recommend this, it is so beautiful and comfortable- We were really sad that we only got to stay in it for one night!

We got married on the 8th of October in the Old Inn and had both ceremony and reception there. From our first meeting with Kerry until the wedding day itself the support and service was fantastic. Nothing was to much trouble and all of the staff absolutely and completely went over and above to

Read More

insure we had a fantastic day. All of our guests commented on the high quality of service and food and many said that they would be back for weekend breaks, meals, etc. We couldn't of asked for more from the Old Inn; the building itself is kept in an outstanding condition at all times, the staff are fantastic, right from the barman that helped me keep my nerves before the wedding and Marty the porter that helped me find any items that had been misplaced during the day.
The man that made our day go without a hitch was Shaun. Nothing was ever to much and if I had to do it again the very fact that Shaun was running our day would be a major selling point.
Just to round this review off, if you're ever thinking of going to the Old Inn Crawfordsburn, whether it be for a meal, short break, wedding or any other functions, in my humble opinion you'll not find better in Northern Ireland.

We had the perfect wedding day from start to finish in a historic and beautiful venue and all our guests enjoyed the lovely garden and outdoor terrace for photographs and mingling between the ceremony and the reception. Kerry our wedding coordinator made everything straightforward from the planning

All our guests were impressed by the contrast of traditional and contemporary decor particularly the stunning Verina suite.The food was delicious and all staff were attentive and helpful.Nothing was too much trouble and we would highly recommend The Old Inn to anyone planning a wedding for the expertise, personal service, attention to detail and the warmth and friendliness of everyone involved.

Everything was perfect from the very start of the wedding planning with Kerry (the wedding planner) to the big day itself.
Nothing was a problem and they were always willing to help in any way they could. Even got to meet the chef and discuss our menu options. One the day the Gallery room looked

We had our wedding reception in the new Verina Suite at The Old Inn and we could not have been happier. The staff were amazing leading up to and on the day, and extremely helpful with all our requests to make the day unique for us. The whole day went so smoothly without us having to worry about any

The perfect wedding venue! The Old Inn is not the conventional hotel wedding, it has much more to offer than one could ever expect. We had our wedding service and reception in The Old Inn, May 2015. The organising of our day was made simple by the most helpful staff whom keep in touch and make

everything seamless and stress free, always on hand to answer any queries or questions. The venue itself it amazing, when we booked we were already in love with the deceiving cottage as what it looks from the outside, it is much bigger than we realised, the charm and features you cannot get elsewhere. The contrast of the old with the brand new modern reception room was a great surprise for and gave the best of both worlds. On the day the service of staff was more than brilliant, the food and drinks were impeccable and the day flowed with any issues. The rooms are fantastic, and especially the cottage outside where we stayed on the wedding night. We only wish we had stayed longer. I would whole heartedly recommend The Old Inn for any wedding day and can't wait to return.

Our wedding day was amazing in the old inn. The staff were brillant and they couldn't do enough to help us especially the banqueting manager Shaun he was so so helpful and he made our special day even more special ie; everything on the day ran so smoothly and he was so attentive to everyone

especially my cousin Shane who has walking difficulties and to our guest's who were gluten free, he made sure that everyone was looked after and got the proper meals they ordered. He is def a credit to the hotel :) The food was amazing and no complaints.

The room was stunning our wedding was in the new vienna suite it was stunning. The new chandaler really set off the room along with mood lighting. The flowers at the top table (which the old inn supplied) were stunning such detail and effort went into them. We also had the cottage for our bridal suite and it was stunning i loved the high ceilings and wooden beams.

I have no complaint no bad comments to write or say and neither had any of our guests just all good and i would def recommend the old inn to everyone.In fact all our guests said that it was the best wedding they had been too. :)

We were married two weeks ago at the Old Inn. We had the ceremony and reception there and it was brilliant.

The Old Inn Crawfordsburn is a fantastic venue for a wedding. We were married there this year and we cannot speak highly enough of Kerry, our Master of ceremonies Sean and the rest of the team. The staff are so kind and can't do enough for you. We had our menu amended to suit personal choices which

Read More

the chef did with absolutely no bother. We had several meetings with Kerry and at every meeting she went out of her way to do everything for us and make us feel comfortable. They bend over backwards to facilitate all requests. The venue itself was beautiful. All the guests commented on the lovely atmosphere, flowers, decoration and ambience. Nowhere else can you get the level of detail and old world fashion that is on offer here. Most hotels now are very contemporary,cold and without any unique style but that is something that this venue has in abundance and that is what makes it so special. The bedrooms are so luxurious as well, four posters beds and really opulent. Our meals were perfect and the exact timing the hotel had told us, and the setting is just beautiful. You honestly wont find a more unique venue anywhere in NI. It has a very homely feel too which just adds to the warmth and special feeling on the day. If you want a glamorous wedding The Old Inn is the the place to choose.
