Probably built as a Royal Hunting lodge and very much a stately home since the 16th century, Great Fosters is now a prestigious hotel and wedding venue. Set amongst 50 acres of gardens and parkland in Egham, Surrey, the hotel is a Grade One listed building blessed with the grandeur of 16th century England and luxurious modern facilities.  The romantic gardens – a wisteria-clad Japanese bridge overlooking a sunken rose garden, topiary, fountain, lake and Saxon moat – provide an idyllic backdrop for photographs.  The hotel has 43 bedrooms and is licensed for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies.  

Dating from 1390, The Tithe Barn was painstakingly dismantled from its original site within Surrey and re-built at Great Fosters in the 1930s. It provides an unusual and romantic setting for a wedding with exposed vaulted English oak beams and a Minstrels’ Gallery.   Reception drinks are held in the adjacent Painted Hall, which has its own private bar and during fine weather, drinks are served on the beautiful terrace outside.  The Tithe Barn accommodates up to 180 guests.

With tall arched windows in the style of the eighteenth century, the Orangery is an elegant room with views over the gardens.  Reception drinks are held in the adjacent Conservatory, which has its own private bar.  The Orangery accommodates up to 80 guests.

Food at Great Fosters is important to us whether we are catering for two or two hundred. We put the same emphasis on our wedding menus as we do for our restaurants. Our talented kitchen brigade takes great pride in creating dishes that not only look fabulous but also exceed your expectations on the taste front too.

From your initial enquiry our experienced wedding co-ordinators will work with you to create the memorable day you have always imagined.


We had our wedding at Great Fosters on Sunday 29th May 2016 and every element of our day was perfect. The team liaised excellently with all our suppliers and both rooms were fully prepared and ready for guests on time. On the day our banqueting manager was Jose & he was phenomenal. He ensured the day ran like clockwork and took all the stress away from me. Our wedding had to start late due to a serious accident on the M25 preventing a large proportion of our guests to be late but he dealt with this seamlessly, pushing back dinner and the evening food without causing any issues at all. Although GF is expensive, the flat rate hire charge is on the high side compared to other venues the services is outstanding and the quality of the food was exceptional. Serving 160 hot medium filet steaks is no easy feat! I have been here on numerous occasions to dine / stay in the hotel and although it is expensive, it's an experience and it is worth it. Our guests have not stopped remarking about how good the food was & how spectacular the grounds were. We had a lovely sunny day & we were able to use the terrace & grounds to take some beautiful photos. There were a few altercations with the lead up to the wedding but these were dealt with by the wedding planners. Unfortunately I dealt with 3 different planners in the lead up (I personally like continuity and would have liked just 1 but due to staff leaving / illness it was out of our control) but all were very nice and all requests were dealt with. I would not hesitate to recommend GF as a wedding venue and will personally be returning ASAP.

Ithought I would drop you a line to thank you and your team for a wonderful wedding. The staff at Great Fosters were so attentive. We had the most FANTASTIC wedding. From start to finish everything ran without a hitch (excuse the pun). We couldn't have wished for a more perfect day. All our family and friends thought the venue was absolutely stunning. The Orangery looked beautiful as did the Tithe Barn. Thank you for all your help with all the millions of questions I threw at you. We will definitely recommend Great Fosters not only for a wedding venue but as a beautiful place to stay and enjoy the magnificent surroundings

We just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thank you for all your, David’s and Gareth’s help in making our wedding go so smoothly. You were so helpful and accommodating in the run up and David, Gareth and all the staff were so professional and amazing on the day – we couldn’t have hoped for our wedding day to have gone better. So please do pass on our thanks to everyone – and big thanks for you for all your help and for making us feel so relaxed about everything!
