Why pubs with plenty of character make great wedding venues

A Wide Variety of Spaces 

Most pubs offer a range of spaces to choose from that can suit different styles of wedding. From traditional, cozy rooms with open fires and wooden beams to large, airy spaces with a modern edge. You will have multiple options to choose from for your ceremony, reception, and even your after-party. You can decide whether you want a small and intimate wedding or a grand and lively one. 

"The Bickley Mill Inn has been around since 1296 and has stood the test of time as a long-standing establishment in Devon's countryside. With its traditional interiors complete with roaring fires during winter months, you can immerse yourself in the warmth and old-world atmosphere this pub provides." 

-- Vanessa Woodleigh-Smith, Owner, Bickley Mill Inn 


Affordable and Accessible 

Pubs are often an affordable wedding venue compared to traditional wedding venues like hotels, manors, and castles. You can save on decorating as most pubs come with existing decor that you can use for free, and your guests will already enjoy the pub’s great ambiance. Additionally, you don't need to worry too much about hiring transportation for your guests from different locations since most pubs are centrally located close to public transport links, such as the train station or bus stations. 


Delicious Food and Perfect Drinks 

Most pubs prepare hearty and delicious meals that will make your guests happy. You can choose from a wide selection of dishes tailored to your liking, catering to all dietary requirements, budgets, and menu styles. Moreover, pubs usually stock a great selection of wine, beer, and spirits, and you can work with your caterers to set up a drinks menu that suits your budget and personality. This is especially true if you want to offer something a little more unique than the typical wine and beer found at most traditional weddings. 


Great Company and Amazing Atmosphere 

Pubs usually have regulars, which make for a great atmosphere. Your wedding guests will feel welcomed and part of the community, and everyone can enjoy the pub’s lively and friendly vibe. Your guest will be able to relax, have a few pints, and dance the night away while enjoying the pub's ambiance. The unforgettable atmosphere that a pub can provide might be just what you are looking for. 


Flexibility and Creativity 

One of the best parts of hosting a wedding in a pub is the flexibility they offer. Most pubs are open to creating a bespoke package that’s tailored to each couples' specific requirements. You may be able to bring in your own vendors like florists, DJs, photographer, wedding cake designers, among others, with no restrictions. You will have the freedom of choice and the flexibility to design your wedding the way you’ve always imagined it. 



Pubs make for excellent wedding venues with so much character and versatility. Whether you are looking for a small and intimate wedding or a grand and lively one, you are sure to find the perfect ambiance and atmosphere you want in a pub. With the added benefits of affordability, delicious food, and great company, why not consider a pub for your big day? It’s a distinctive, affordable, and memorable way to celebrate your perfect wedding day.
