Cain Manor - A Country House Wedding Venue on the Surrey-Hampshire Border
My daughter Gabrielle’s wedding at Cain Manor on Saturday was simply fantastic and I can’t thank your brilliant staff enough for what they did to make it such a special day. It is extremely rare these days to get a service that can only be described as faultless. Siena and her assistant who were masterminding the operation on Saturday were a delight to work with. From the moment we arrived on Saturday at 10.45 your staff were waiting at the front door to greet us and show us to our rooms. This immediately created a “feel good factor”. All the staff clearly knew their roles on the day and this ensured such a slick service for my family and guests. Your young waiting staff were so attentive, always on hand with a genuine desire to offer the very best service they could. It impressed me that the young staff were so welcoming and keen to do the very best job they could. Many of our guests have commented on how delicious the food was - again top marks to your team for such wonderful food. In summing up Cain Manor created the effect and atmosphere that our wedding was the “most important wedding of 2018” that you were hosting. Considering you host so many weddings during the course of the year it would be easy to just “go through the motions”, that didn't happen on Saturday you made us feel very special. Thank you for a wonderful day.

Thanks everyone at Bijou for a great day on Saturday. The service and management of the event was excellent and we had the perfect day. Even the rain made it better as everyone remained in the house and couldn’t disperse, adding to the atmosphere. A special mention to the waiting staff during the banquet - I have had a number of comments from guests saying how professional and seamless it was.
