We had our wedding at New Craven Hall in May 2017 and it was absolutely fantastic! It's a beautiful venue with a gorgeous bar area and looked amazing all set up. Our wedding was quite big and we'd struggled to find a venue that was big enough but still looked beautiful and New Craven Hall was just perfect. Seated all 180 people comfortably and then there was plenty of room for dancing later on (with even more people!). But the really wonderful thing about having our wedding there was Jane and Ben! They were so helpful and flexible, working directly with all our suppliers and making sure everything ran smoothly. Every meeting that we had beforehand left me feeling so relieved that we were in good hands. Wish we could have our wedding there all over again. Could not recommend them more!

Thank you to Jane, Ben and the team at New Craven Hall. When Mike found this venue I wasn't sure what to expect, then I walked into it and just loved it! The fairy lights, the warmth (which was needed with the snow!) - it was perfect for our wedding party after getting married in Cancun and so many of our guests agree. Big thank you to Jane for knowing exactly how we wanted things and delivering! Would highly recommend the venue and wish we could do it all over again. Love from Michelle, Mike & Brooke xx

We had our wedding reception at New Craven Hall in April 2018. The venue looked stunning, and Ben, Jane, Gemma plus all the staff ran the whole event without a hitch. So many people commented on how great the venue looked, how it was unusual, how friendly the staff were and how much they enjoyed the event. In the whole run up to our wedding, it was so easy to get hold of the team (we live in London and weren’t around much, but they were so accommodating to our limited days available!) and nothing was too much hassle even when we requested alternative beers etc. I can’t recommend the team & venue enough - fab! Thank you

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at New Craven Hall in May 2018 and it was the most perfect day! The team were amazing from start to finish, they listened to what we wanted and made our day exactly what we hoped for. All of our guests commented on how beautiful New Craven Hall is and what a relaxed day it was. We couldn't be happier with everything

This venue and the people who run it are AWESOME!!! We were looking for a wedding venue a bit different for our wedding on 26th May and this venue did not disappoint!! We fell in love as soon as we walked inside and knew it was exactly what we wanted. It is amazing inside and also the yard is fab for when the suns out (which it was on our wedding day). The team there were fab from the first point of contact right up to on the day. I was constantly bombarding them with questions and they always replied with responses that told me they knew exactly what they were doing. The coordination meeting a month before the wedding really set me at ease as they were on it with everything. The day before we got access to the venue and they were on hand if we needed any help, the day of the wedding they set up our cake table and were around all day helping out. We didn’t even really need to ask them to do anything as they were on top of it. Then when it came to clear away the next day they had practically done it all for us!! Perfect when you’ve been partying till 3am! If you’re considering this venue you MUST go to see it, so many of our guests were shocked by how amazing it looked after driving onto an industrial site and have commented about it since. Thanks again guys, Tara and Mike x

So I really want to do this review justice - our wedding wouldn't have been such the wonderful day it was if it wasn't for Jane and the team at New Craven Hall. We had our wedding here in June 2018, and I still can't believe how smoothly, and perfectly it went. Right from the start, the whole team were really flexible - I was really conscious that a lot of venues only let you use certain food providers, or only allow certain vendors to be part of your day etc. and with New Craven Hall, it couldn't have been further from the truth - We had a really informal set up through the day, and had street food and more of a party in the evening. meaning a massive set up change half way through the day, but nothing was too much for them. We also wanted our puppy to be part of the day, and this wasn't a problem at all, in fact I think they all fell in love with our pupper on the day, and that meant so much to us. The venue itself is a real diamond - perfectly kept inside, and the open brick in our pictures just make us look like the coolest couple in Yorkshire. On the month leading up to the wedding, Jane did all of our organising with all the vendors for all the complex things you don't even think about like timings, electrics, space etc. and she also helped in parts of the day like comparing speeches, announcing cake cutting and first dances - the list was endless, but all of it was so helpful, and no trouble for them at all. Loads of people have told me how beautiful the venue was, and how it's one of the hippest weddings they've been to (which is obviously lovely to hear) but it wouldn't have been the same without New Craven Hall. On the day, anything that was a last minute change or little problem, they all took full ownership of, and left me and my husband to enjoy the rest of the day, and that meant a lot to us too - you spend a lot on weddings, and we're thankful we were able to enjoy the whole day with little worries! If anyone's unsure on doing something different for their wedding, I urge them to come look at New Craven Hall, have a sit down with Jane, Gemma and Ben, and see what they can do - they won't regret it, and it'll be a lovely day! Cannot recommend enough!!

If you think the venue is great, the owners and team are even better. Such exceptional customer service - they made every bit of wedding planning easy and enjoyable. They listened to what we what wanted and made sure the day was perfect. Thank you so much for our brilliant wedding day - can we do it again?!
Sally & Rachael
The venue looks absolutely amazing and is perfect if you're after something a little bit different (and so conveniently located to the city centre). They are also so helpful at every step of the process - nothing seems to be too much trouble and it made our wedding day completely stress-free. So happy we chose NCH and would highly recommend.
Rachel & Ryan
We chose this venue over 2 years ago, as soon as we saw it in person we instantly fell in love! 2 years have passed and the venue has gone from strength to strength, I didn't think it could have got any better but somehow it has! The staff are so friendly & nothing was too much of an ask. No ridiculous bar prices like most wedding venues either. Our guests were blown away! Our day was amazing & this was down to this beautiful venue & their fabulous staff. Thankyou so so much. You'd be crazy not to book this place!
Lauren & Tom
We recently had our wedding here on 15th June 2019 and New Craven Hall made our day perfect!! The bar staff were all friendly, smiley and patient, even the doorman was soooo nice, helpful and polite towards everyone Jane & Ben (The Owners) are an amazing couple, giving me time to get a deposit together, letting me have more evening guests due to not using your DJ. So nice of them to do that as they didn’t have to. I really appreciated it. I wish them all the best for their growing family. Gemma... what a girl!!! The best wedding coordinator EVER!!! She’s Incredible, reassuring, calming, organised, chilled which made me chill, happy, friendly, beautiful an all around trooper!!! She’s a credit to NCH and Jane don’t let her go! Thank you so so much for EVERYTHING! I appreciate every minor thing you did for me and my family for our wedding.

We had our wedding reception at New Craven Hall in July 2019 and it was everything we had hoped it would be and more. The venue itself is really unique and we loved how it felt a little bit different from the ‘norm’. The whole experience and process of planning the wedding was incredibly easy and relaxed, with Gemma (along with others at NCH) being incredibly helpful throughout and genuinely wanting to support us in getting the kind of day we pictured. Their organisation and coordination of all the suppliers we booked was amazing and on the day (and in fact prior to the day itself) we didn’t have to worry about anything; they took care of it all. There were certain bits of assistance we needed when setting up for the reception the day before and Ben from NCH was more than happy to help. The DJ we booked as part of our package with them was perfect too - the playlist hugely reflected our own taste and all our friends and family had a fab time dancing the night away. Our wedding day and all the planning leading up to it felt so calm and enjoyable and that is undoubtedly due to New Craven Hall and all their wonderful staff.
Lucy & Matt
Everything!! New Craven Hall was definitely the best venue we could of chosen! Jane Ben Gemma and Olivia where all amazing always making us feel the best we could always calm and no need to worry about anything! This hidden gem I would recommend to anyone and we couldn’t of asked for a more perfect day! Jane from start to finish made us feel so relaxed witch is exactly what we wanted and between her Olivia and Gemma always kept in touch and helped with anything any queries not matter how big or small! On the day Jane promised she would be there to help even tho heavily pregnant witch was appreciated so much as she was there from first look to the big day putting her little touches to make it even more special for us! Ben and Olivia made the day run so smooth without making it stress-full you wouldn’t of thought we had an order of the day as it ran so brilliantly. Everything from start to finish was the best it could be and the only thing I would say is that we wish we could do it all again! Such love and laughter all day and we made it our own thanks to them! the bar and door staff where lovely and nothing was too much for them. Thank you for everything we couldn’t of asked for a better day it’s was everything we hoped for and to anyone who is thinking of having their wedding here we would highly recommend and you will not be disappointed. good luck in your future xxx

My Wife and I got married here last Saturday. We fell in love with the venue 2 years ago (ish), and we honestly couldn't have picked a better venue. On the day, it look BEAUTIFUL...we had so many compliments on it. Nothing was ever too much for the NCH team...they have all been fantastic throughout...and having Ben and Olivia there on our day to ensure smooth running settled us both so much so we could just enjoy our day! I really could not recommend the venue higher...it was amazing, we loved it, our guests loved it (a few said it was the best wedding they have ever been to...just saying) and everything was so smooth and effortless. Anyone reading this who is thinking about booking at New Craven Hall...DO IT! You will not regret it one little bit!
Ceri & Rob
A big space that can be personalised the way you want it! Jane and Ben are always on hand to help! We got married October 1st 2019 and had such an amazing wedding! Couldnt thank the staff on hand aswell all night enough! We had literally no issues all day (not that we were aware of anyway). Such a perfect wedding. Thank you all so much! And congratulations Jane and Ben on your new baby!
Keely & Mike
Wow! Where do I start? From the very beginning, New Craven Hall made our whole wedding experience super easy. The team helped us through all the planning and took control of the day so we could just enjoy it. Nothing was too much trouble. The venue is absolutely beautiful. It was everything we wanted. Thank you so much to everyone in the New Craven Hall team!
