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 situated with easy access from Basingstoke and Reading on the A33, off the M3 and M4.

Our exclusive Waterloo Suite is a modern, bright space offering a beautiful setting in which to host your ceremony and wedding reception, accommodating up to 120 guests for a delicious sit-down meal and 160 guests for evening entertainment. For the warmer months, our Rose Garden and open-sided barn is beautiful for outside ceremonies, overlooking stunning wheat fields and countryside; ideal for photographs and to enjoy drinks and canapes prior to moving inside for the wedding breakfast.

Our award-winning Head Chef has devised menus that are brimming with locally sourced ingredients, 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 25 boutique hotel rooms, including our luxury honeymoon suite, offers the perfect retreat for you and your guests to enjoy a relaxing overnight escape before re-joining for a delicious breakfast the following morning.
