"The fact it was better than Galvin La Chapelle tasting menu,

Galvin La Gavroche and less than half the price. Well done Chef. By the way the waiting team were awesome."

"Huge, huge thanks to Samantha, David and the team for making our wedding of 7 October so perfect. We were lucky enough to have an outdoor wedding and the setting is beautiful.

The Essex Barn at Channels also provides a stunning venue for the wedding breakfast (which was all beautifully cooked) and the party afterwards. The staff were so helpful and made our day so very special. This along with the full use of the Channels Lodge and the connected bar and brasserie makes the perfect wedding venue. Thanks to you all. We will be back to visit soon."

"We had our wedding here on 1st July and it was absolutely perfect! The day went so smoothly and the staff were amazing!

A special mention to Sam who looked after us from the second we arrived until we left! We can't thank Channels enough! All our guests thoroughly enjoyed our special day! Our only problem is that it went too quickly.... I want to do it all over again! Thankyou again for making our day more than perfect!"

"Louisa and I had our wedding at Channels on Sunday 6th August. We were delighted by how professional, helpful and caring the team were. In particular, our wedding coordinators, Sam and Jess, supported us through the day and never batted an eyelid at any request - no matter how big or small!

They were absolutely amazing and made the whole day run so smoothly, from helping me to put on my buttonhole and organising our guests, to helping Louisa arrange her wedding dress for photographs and setting up our tower of cookies, they couldn't do enough for us. The whole venue is pristine and we were very lucky to have our wedding ceremony outside on a sunny day (there are very few this August). The whole atmosphere was positive and it was clear how much the staff wanted us to have a good day. Little details, such as all the staff knowing our names, helped us to feel at home. The food was amazing and many of guests commented on how tasty the BBQ was and such a unique wedding breakfast. A huge thank you to all of the staff at Channels for giving us such a wonderful day!"

"Chris and I got married here on Friday 14 July 2017 and we had the most incredible day. All the staff are amazing but Sam and Dave were absolutely brilliant.

They thought of everything before we did so the day ran so smoothly. No request was too big and they accommodated all of our wedding party's needs which is no mean feat considering we had 125 people!! Could not recommend this venue highly enough, it's just beautiful!! Anyone thinking of booking you must do so!!"

Caitlin & Chris Day 14/7/17

Friendly bar staff and great food. The pork belly was superb and beiatofully presented – how ever did the Chef do that sweet corn?

Will be back."

"Fantastic setting, very luxurious room and very well equipped with proper coffee and full sky package.

The Brasserie was excellent, especially as it was Thai night. Top class, I will be back and will recommend to my colleagues."
