The entire experience (from our initial viewing to leaving the venue at the end of the reception) was exceptional. The food was amazing and the venue looked stunning. The real stand out was the service - they took care of everything (even things we hadn’t thought of) which made our evening so much more enjoyable. Thank you so much!

This place is absolutely stunning. Everyone at John Rowland was so accommodating and flexible, they were able to cater to and work with us to plan our intimate, special day.

Butler Lane was a fantastic venue. Very well organised and has a beautiful courtyard. Due to COVID there were lots of uncertainties, however the team at Butler Lane were always flexible and helpful. Would definitely recommend!

Butler lane is the most beautiful venue, and I am so glad that we had our wedding there. We had a cocktail style wedding and the food was delicious, I added in a Grazing Table to ensure enough food. We BYO'd alcohol which kept costs down. We had 4 Wedding Coordinators leave the business while we were planning which made things quite stressful, however Amanda who helped us on the day was great. There were a few things that didn't go to plan on the day despite my instructions, but nothing major and all in all I would highly recommend getting married at Butler Lane.

We had our wedding at Butler Lane by Peter Rowland and it was just perfect! Our wedding planner Amanda was awesome so professional, friendly and easy to work with. The staff on the day were outstanding, they made it run so smoothly and was so friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful every dish was delicious and everyone commented on how good the food was. Also the set up was just wonderful, the beautiful courtyard with the living feature wall was just beautiful! We can't thank Butler Lane enough it was the best venue!
