  • Stokesay Castle in Reading, PA has weddings down to a science. Their wedding coordinator, Lauren, is absolutely amazing! She knows her business extremely well and is able to anticipate the needs of her clients and guests. Lauren was very responsive and accessible via phone, email or in person throughout the entire wedding planning process. She facilitated the rehearsal the day prior offering her own suggestions to help keep things flowing smoothly. The day of the wedding, I could have sworn there must have been four Laurens running around Stokesay! She was everywhere at once making sure we had everything we needed to make our day go off without issue. Chef Willie and the kitchen staff are culinary wizards. The food at Stokesay was impressive! It's not often that I've been to a wedding where I felt the food was remarkable. We received numerous comments about the food from presentation to portion size. The pastry chef did a magnificent job on our wedding cake and our cupcakes! He ev... Read more

  • We were married at Stokesay Castle last Friday & give it our highest recommendation as a wedding venue. As regular customers of Stokesay, we are no strangers to the delicious food, and it was reliably scrumptious at our wedding. The presentation of the food was impressive, complete with edible flowers. The wedding packages have a wide variety of entree choices ranging from standard selections like chicken & filet, to more unusual dishes such as duck. To help you finalize your choices, your wedding package also includes a tasting dinner, where you meet the head chef who explains how each dish is prepared. The ice cream bar we chose, which was manned by the head pastry chef himself, was also impressive, with a huge variety of toppings to satisfy everyone. Stokesay always makes us feel special when we dine there & our wedding was no exception. The service is impeccable. The staff communicate via headsets so there always seemed to be someone right there, ready to assist or serve. L... Read more

  • Lauren Lubas and her staff at Stokesay are top notch! From the planning, the food and drinks, the service, the cake and cupcakes, to the set-up and clean up, we could not have asked for anything easier or better!!! We had alot of out of town guests and they were awe-struck with the beauty of Stokesay Castle. We received so many compliments on the quality of food and service, and everyone wanted to find cupcakes to take home! Don't hesitate to check this place out!!!

  • AMAZING TO WORK WITH!!! We could not have asked for better people to work with at Stokesay. They made our lives so much easier the day of the wedding. They were kind enough to put out all our centerpieces, bows and decorations for our reception. We had met with them a month before and the workers took pictures of how we wanted our centerpieces displayed. The centerpieces were displayed exactly how we had shown them and they did a fantastic job decorating the rest of the ballroom. Any questions, we could think of, we just called and they answered them in a very timely and professional manner. You get a lot of bang for your buck with them. They also have other great vendors (cake, DJ, ice sculptor, etc) that they recommend to you which helps make your life a little easier too. I would highly recommend this venue to everyone because they can turn their ballroom or any other room within the castle into whatever you can possibly dream of!!!! The wait staff is also very professional and prom... Read more

  • We just loved having our wedding reception at Stokesay!!! From start to finish, it was the perfect experience. The staff, in particular the wedding coordinator, Larissa, was outstanding!! Every time we went for pre-wedding meetings, we were treated so kindly by everyone at the castle. They went out of their way to make us feel happy and at-ease. The wedding reception itself was just perfect. It was our dream come true. The reception was decorated perfectly and just how we wanted. The staff was excellent at making this happen. The setting was beautiful, with amazing places in and around the castle for pictures. We received so many compliments about the food and drinks, as well as the setitng. We are thankful to Stokesay for all they did for us.

  • We had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception at Stokesay, and the entire experience exceeded our expectations. Larissa and Stephanie were extremely responsive and helpful throughout the planning process. Larissa kept everyone on track the day-of, so we had nothing to worry about. They took care of all the set-up and we always had staff checking in and catering to our every need. The setting is beautiful (inside and out), the food is delicious and the service is impeccable. We couldn't have chosen a better venue for our wedding!

  • Amazing staff, help you start to finish and let you have your vision but provide assistance and insight. The venue is gorgeous and awesome for pictures. The rooms to get ready in are comfortable, decorative, and one of my favorite things was in the princess suite you see guests as they arrive but they can't see you. It helped lessen anxiety to see everyone coming. The food was absolutely flawless. The reception is gorgeous with all types of themes that could fit the feel of the room. The bar is amazing and Stokesay sets up high top tables by the bar to create a little social area feel. You can design your own layout of the room, and they are flexible with guest numbers at each of the tables which was HUGE when making a seating chart. You could have some tables of 8, 9,10,11, or 12 guests. I can't say enough good things. If you want a beautiful venue, with staff that honestly goes above and beyond, and great food, great feel you should definitely consider Stokesay!!

  • We are so pleased with our dream wedding experience in early September, 2012! The staff members provided superior service to our wedding party, family and guests. Everything was well coordinated and catered to our requests and needs. It had rained all morning and cleared up just in time for our ceremony. They did everything they could to provide us with the outdoor wedding we had hoped for. We are certain we made the right choice due to proximity for guests as well as atmosphere we were looking for. Highly recommend this beautiful and professional venue!

  • The castle was absolutely amazing. they bent over backwards to make our day perfect. I've always heard horror stories about how brides and grooms end up not being able to eat on their big day but the people at stokesay made sure we ate. We even had our own personal server while doing photos bringing us hors'deavers and drinks. On top of everything the food was absolutely to die for. our Rennaisance themed wedding went off without a hitch.

  • We held our wedding at Stokesay, and overall, it was a fantastic experience. First things first - the restaurant is beautiful. It's modeled after an actual castle in England, and does a very good job of simulating the experience. The décor, the giant carved knight, everything gives off a particular medieval, classy vibe that you can't help but enjoy. I'll get right down to the important part - the food. Stokesay has some of the best food you'll ever eat in a restaurant. During our planning phase we had the opportunity to try the majority of their menu items..literally every one of them was good. You can't go wrong - but the steaks were my choice, either the filet mignon or the shoulder filet. Both were excellent, as were all the sides that went with them. I can't possibly give more praise to the chefs. As far as the wedding goes - most everything went smoothly. Our wedding was the weekend after Hurricane Sandy - luckily, Stokesay had no issues and we were fully up and running... Read more

  • We used Stokesay as our reception site for our wedding this fall. I knew I wanted to have my wedding at Stokesay someday even before I was engaged. The venue itself is a dream - the grounds are beautiful and the food is excellent. Seriously- if nothing else went right, I knew from the tasting that the food would be delicious, and I was not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and courteous and worked to make sure our day was everything that we wanted it to be. They had signature cocktails at their bridal show earlier in the yera and I requested to have the same ones at the wedding - they were a huge hit with the guests! Larissa was very responsive and usually would get back to me within a day of asking questions, which is a luxury among wedding vendors who can take days or weeks to respond. The only reason we did not give them a perfect score was because of the few things that inevitably did not go as planned. We had wanted well and call drinks only since we were paying ... Read more

  • Overall this was a fantastic place to have a reception. The food was great, the staff was very professional and the grounds are beautiful. The only complaint I would have is the wait staff. They seemed totally disinterested in helping us gather our belongings at the end of the night. For example, my cake topper and serving set went missing and when we asked one of the servers to find them for us, they acted like it was a total bother to them and made a big deal about going to the kitchen to find them. That annoyed me. Besides that little hiccup, the reception was wonderful.

  • My husband and I had an absolutely beautiful wedding at Stokesay Castle! Everyone who came said that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. With all of the stress and craziness leading up to our day, I had given up the idea that I would feel like a princess. I just wanted things to go smoothly. However, once we got there they started us off by bringing a cheese and fruit platter with champagne and orange juice, as well as coffee and tea, to my princess suite. From the moment we arrived we were all waited on hand and foot. I was even assigned a personal attendant for the day, who went above and beyond, ducking behind me and my husband with a tray of food so that we wouldn't miss out during photos. I never felt like I was pretending to be a princess, I really and truly felt royal for the day and I know all of our guests felt pampered as well.
