"WOW WOW WOW!"
"We were looking for somewhere really special and boy did we find it. Tony and his staff looked after us so well. The hotel and food were fantastic and more than we could have wished for. All our guests commented on how brilliant the place/day and wedding was. If you're looking for an idyllic, beautiful country setting for your wedding then look no further." 03 Sep 2012, Shaun & Jill Leworthy
Couldn't have wished for more!
"We married at the Worsley Arms in September 2011. We'd spent quite some time searching for a wedding venue in the York area, but not quite found that place that place that was right for us - until we came across the Worsley Arms. As soon as we made our first visit we could just see ourselves and our guest there, it seemed to tick every box, a beautiful village location, lovely gardens, a room to hold the ceremony, an optional marquee for the reception (which we took and would definately recommend) and friendly staff. The day itself was a resounding success, Tony and his team were absolutely without fault, the food was fantastic, the setting perfect and it was a day which was enjoyed by all. We could not have imagined a better day." Matt and Patricia Moorhouse
Highly recommended wedding venue!
"We got married in April 2012 at The Worsley Arms and had a wonderful wedding day. The hotel suited our needs perfectly and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was excellent and the hotel has a good selection of rooms available. This venue also offered very good value for money compared to some of the other venues we looked at. Thank you once again to Mr Finn and his team." Thomas and Charlotte Williamson
