"Fantastic place... Was taken as a surprise Birthday treat by my girlfriend earlier this month. Little did she know that I already knew and had given Karen the boxed Engagement ring to place on the top of the five tiered food stand. The look on my now fiancée's face was just priceless. Hoping to have the Wedding there next year and can't wait."

"We had our Wedding Afternoon Tea here with our 28 guests in the Orangery following our registry office wedding service. Amazing food, service, atmosphere, decor, garden and location. A very special place. Highly recommended."

"We had our Wedding at the Woburn Coffee House yesterday and I have to say it was amazing!! I found Ian a great help before the day – Ian helped us with ideas and organisation and was extremely supportive and accommodating! On the day the staff were brilliant- I couldn’t have asked for a friendlier group of people. We had a small wedding (18 people) and everybody loved it! The food was delicious and the setting very beautiful. The children enjoyed being outside in the garden and the adults soaked up the sunshine throughout the day. It was great to have an allocated bathroom/lounge for getting ready beforehand - and the lounge was available for us all day. It was honestly a perfect day and I would 100% recommend this as a Wedding venue!"

"We were looking for a special venue to get married in, with about 40 guests. Imagine our delight when we discovered that the Woburn Coffee House had obtained their licence to host Weddings! We were in the Woburn Hotel at the time we found this information, and were both so enthusiastic that we went across the road immediately to find out more. Karen, the venue's fabulous owner, was very busy at front of house but could not have been more helpful and charming, despite the fact that we had just called in unexpectedly with excited questions! We were smitten, and thus began the planning process for our wedding, which eventually took place in December 2018. I understand that we were the second couple to get married there - but such was the flawless planning and execution of the day, you would have thought they'd been doing it for many years. This was also greatly due to Karen's experience, expertise and patience and excellent, cheerful and attentive staff, but also due to the professional, knowledgeable and charming presence of Ian - whom Karen had just taken on as a General Manager at the Coffee House. Ian brought a wealth of relevant experience with him to his role and was effortlessly in control of proceedings on the day, ensuring that everything was in its place and flowed perfectly. I say effortlessly - that understates the amount of hard work that all the staff put in to make our special day so pleasant and memorable. Our guests were hugely complimentary and loved our Wedding and the Coffee House. They were also able to recommend a photographer, florist, cake expert and wine merchant as part of her repertoire of expertise, all of whom did us proud and were very much in keeping with the high-class ethos of her business. The cost of the Wedding was affordable, the food was excellent, service second to none and the venue itself is just beautiful. We could not have chosen a better experience or a better venue to get married in."

"My Sister treated me to the Afternoon Tea for my 60th birthday and what a special treat it was. The decor is gorgeous and the staff were so warm and friendly,nothing was too much trouble, Thanks to Ian and Tanya for their brilliant customer service. We both savoured every mouthful of the stunning food and had plenty of coffee and tea to go with it. 5 tiers of yumminess with not a sandwich in sight! Would love to return again, many thanks also to the chef's for their originality."
