Our beautiful wedding venue near Basingstoke

When planning the most important day of your life, the venue, food and an exceptional level of service are the essential ingredients for a truly memorable day, for both you and your guests.

Located on the stunning Wellington Estate and sitting on the Hampshire and Berkshire border, The Wellington Arms is a beautifully refurbished country pub, hotel and wedding venue, ideally located with easy access from Basingstoke and Reading on the A33, off the M3 and M4.

With a fantastic list of recommended suppliers and an Events Manager with a wealth of experience, we’ll help you create your dream bespoke wedding setting.

Our award-winning Head Chef has devised menus that are brimming with locally sourced ingredients from neighbouring farms and producers, to ensure our dishes are bursting with fresh flavours. From the bubbles in your glass to the chutney on your cheeseboard, we pride ourselves on showcasing the very best our local area offers, so that you and your guests enjoy every mouthful and sip.

As the evening of celebrations draws to a close, our honeymoon suite offers the perfect retreat to whisk yourselves away for a relaxing, luxury overnight escape before re-joining your guests for a delicious breakfast the following morning.
