In the very picturesque village of Nassington, near Peterborough, stands the Queens Head Riverside Inn. It is a small hotel and pub and is situated beside the river Nene, an idyllic setting for any wedding or social function. The Queens Head is a very popular wedding venue because it is traditional and yet it offers the modern facilities of a comfortable four-star inn. It is licensed by Northamptonshire County Council as an approved venue for weddings and civil ceremonies. This historic building has three rooms that are licensed for wedding ceremonies, and wedding parties of up to eighty people can easily be accommodated.
For the wedding reception there is the airy Garden Room where up to seventy guests can enjoy a sit-down meal. It also has a dance floor for evening receptions of up to 120. Alternatively, your wedding reception can take place in a marquee on the lawn by the river. This marquee can be customised to suit your tastes and will provide the ideal setting for those all-important wedding photographs.
The menus are varied, both traditional and contemporary, and the hotel was given an AA Rosette in 2010/11 and 2012/13 for its excellent, locally sourced cuisine. They also have a wide selection of lagers, real ales and wines.
The bride and groom can have exclusive use of the hotel for their special day, although this will involve an extra charge. The staff will be happy to discuss this and all the different wedding packages available. The hotel prides itself on its friendly welcome and hospitality and will do all it can to accommodate your requirements.
Rated as one of East Anglia’s finest small hotels, this establishment should definitely be on your list when you are looking for a wedding venue with an excellent reputation.
