Wonderful Food

The Hill

Located in the centre of Stroud, The Hill is the perfect venue for all occasions. Built in 1634 the house offers timeless elegance, secluded, landscaped gardens and excellent food for your wedding. Whether you need the perfect backdrop for a garden party or a romantic setting for timeless wedding pictures, the grounds of The Hill provide it all. With century old trees, box hedging and carved stonework, there is a real sense of ‘stepping back in time’ here. Perfect for a celebration based within the main house or a summer wedding with Pimms on the patio.

Whether you choose a civil ceremony at The Hill or decide to take your vows elsewhere the house is yours for the day. This means your reception can slip seamlessly into an evening of dancing, with food and refreshments as required. The fully licensed bar is available exclusively for your guests and celebrations can also be extended outside with a marquee, mobile bar and a full range of catering options.

Food is at the very heart of everything we do here at The Hill and we understand how important it is that your wedding breakfast is perfect. Our Head Chef specialises in designing individual delicious menus, from four course silver service to delicate finger buffets and exquisite, hand made wedding cakes, everything we make is created with care and attention to detail.

The Hill is very fortunate to have one of the county's foremost pastry chefs and a sugarcraft specialist as part of its catering team. All cakes are individually handcrafted with a floral bouquet colour matched to your wedding theme.

With packages to suit all budgets, The Hill makes the country manor dream a reality for every bride and groom.
