Legendary Sherwood Forest is a superb wedding location.

450 acres of veteran oaks, the last remnant of the royal hunting forest, offer tremendous photo opportunities to remember your special day. Set in a delightful rural location, Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve is very accessable and has good carparking

Weddings are celebrated in the newly refurbished Oak Room, and receptions a hosted in the near by Forest Table Restaraunt. Our experienced catering team will be delighted to meet your needs, from a formal wedding breakfast to an open air hog-roast, and will ensure your guests have a great time.

For weddings held in the afternoon, with reception from 4.30 pm, the venue hire of the Oak Room and exclusive use of the Forest Table starts at just £300.

What more memorable location could there be for your special day?

Additional details:

Sherwood Forest is a very attractive location, but it is also a site of special scientific interest and a popular visitor destination.
weddings are normally held in the afternoon, typically 3 pm, so that after the ceremony and the photographs the Forest table is available for your exclusive use.
The visitor centre closes to the general public at 5.30 p.m.

Type of Cuisine:

Our varied selection of reception menus include everything from barbecues and a hog roast, to classic canapes and evening buffets. We can even provide a medieval feast - why not encourage your guests to get in the mood by dressing in medieval costume and live the Robin Hood legend for a day!

We have nothing but praise for this venue. When we needed the perfect place to host our medieval reception, the Table Restaurant fitted the bill. The organisation was brilliant, the chef exemplary, and the night was perfect. It is still talked about within our family and friends years later! ...
