Our beautiful marquee is easy to customise to suit your own special occasion. Whilst we are experts in event management and have many contacts readily available to help you out, we have no restrictions on you using your own caterers, decorators, staff, etc. Our marquee can seat up to 450 guests, and is surrounded by 6 acres of land for you to use. We love our guests to use the venue to it’s full potential – arrive in a helicopter, have a fireworks display, set up a glamping pitch – we allow you to transform the venue and make it your own. We also allow our guests maximum access to the venue before their event to ensure set up runs as smooth as possible.
What Our Clients Say
There is nowhere else in the area quite like Riverview Manor - in a beautiful countryside setting overlooking the river, but not too far from the local town and motorways. The venue was big enough to cater for our large guest list but we were also working on a budget so looking for a venue which was flexible and didn't offer the usual "package" deals where we would have to use set suppliers (which usually come with a mark up!).
It was refreshing to use a family run business who genuinely seemed to care about our event rather than profit margins... encouraging the craziest of ideas (helicopters, fireworks, you name it) to really make the most of their venue. Nav and Saf were the loveliest most laid back people we dealt with during our wedding planning, and nothing was too big of an ask. In the days leading up to our wedding, the whole family were around to assist with various things, then helping our guests out on the day, and also helping us out afterwards and ensuring that their services met our expectations. They certainly did, they really did go above and beyond and we cannot thank them enough. Riverview Manor is a real hidden gem and we will always hold the place dear to our hearts... we hope to return for anniversaries in the future for sure!

Words can’t describe how magical that night was for both my fiancé and I. The staff were so helpful and made my night run smoothly! One thing my guests commented on was that there was so much space, lots of parking but beautiful scenery for people to look upon. It was great for my guests to be able to take their drinks outside and enjoy the views. What was even more amazing was having the firework display at the very end of the evening! This is not something that can be done at other venue’s so we loved that we had the chance to do something so different and unique!!! The great thing was the marquee looked amazing both in the day and in the evening!

To all of the Riverview Manor team, let me begin by saying that after celebrating our wedding day at your venue back in Feb, I still hear my loving family and friends telling me how my wedding day was so amazing! Ever since my magic day I can’t help but to let others know about the opportunity to enjoy an outdoor marque event surrounded by beautiful acres of free and safe land. The River waves and sun setting moments were captured and framed in my home. The service was brilliant carried late into the night! Beside my new Husband and knowing that my day was absolutely perfect was all thanks to your help. Your passion and thought you put into my special day – I will never forget my moment at the Riverview.

The Riverview Manor did an excellent job in delivering what they said in our agreement to use the venue. I wanted to use my own event staff and food caterer’s for the day as my business has terms with 3rd party events co coordinators. Our fund raising night went extremely well – very proud with the outcome and everyone had a delightful time enjoying the views and having a moment to give back to a trusted charity. I would like to thank you on behalf of our social teams committee for your execution and professionalism of the night. Will hope to use your manor again for our next fund raising in December.

I’d just like to give a thank you to everyone that was involved in making the day as memorable as it was. I hired out the venue to surprise mum and dad on their 50th Anniversary and they were blown away. The venue was decorated beautifully! The music and entertaining kept all the guests busy and they had a good laugh! The food by Preeti Catering was amazing and to have a Indian theme for the day was very important-happily I can say everyone enjoyed the food and even went for hours! Mum and dad most importantly had the best time and couldn’t have asked for anything else. It was a perfect day which ended with a beautiful display of fireworks- a breath taking view after the best evening. Thank you again and I will defo be coming back!
