Hi Steven, this was just a quick email to thank you for everything you did for me and Gav on our wedding day on the 23rd of November you made an amazing impact on our wedding and made us feel so looked after every moment of the day. We felt like superstars and to quote Gav the job you did was top notch!

Fantastic location. Bar staff great. All drinks catered for by Alex. Ask for Alex, always gives you the best drinks and service. Thank you Alex, you made the night - and lets be honest, you make the best caramel espresso martini. P.S - do not know Alex, we are not sponsored. 29.11.2021

I stayed at the south causey last night for a wedding, and what a day it was. The venue and food were amazing. The bar manager was another level!! From taking the time to entertain my little boy to try and get him smiling for photos, to being a barrel of laughs when playing the casino games, to even finding us some cake at the end of the night as we'd ran out of time to try the wedding cake. What a truly lovely gent he is! 01.11.2021


We had the absolute pleasure to share my Son James and Daughter in Law Danielle’s Wedding day at this truly amazing venue. We had a beautiful day from start to finish. The Old Barn and the Chapel were such a beautiful and intimate environment that all the guests of James and Danielle were totally impressed with. I would highly recommend this venue for its services, location, scenery and the first class attention to detail from the first class staff that attended to us all. Can I pay particular thanks to Wedding Coordinator Stacy and Bar Manager Mark. I hope to visit this venue on more occasions, well done and thank you South Causey Inn. 01.11.2021
