Need some help narrowing down the best hotel wedding venues in Gloucestershire? Then we’d highly recommend Kings Head Hotel. Situated in Cirencester’s quaint town centre on the edge of the Cotswold Hills, this event hub has lots to offer its patrons. Explore function rooms of all shapes and sizes, with all the essentials included in the hire fee. Plus, comfy guest rooms, an on-site spa and a myriad of exceptional catering menus and complementary beverages.

The Scene at Kings Head Hotel Gloucestershire

Kings Head Hotel Gloucestershire has been a cornerstone of the marketplace for over 500 years. Its rich heritage is evident in its signature coach house arch and mansard-style roof, alongside its tastefully restored interiors. Inside, you’ll find plenty of period features from various eras, including stone cellars, open fireplaces, oak panelling and more.

Yet, most of the spaces available for hire have been upgraded with a contemporary twist. The Georgian Assembly Room, for example, features decorative cornicing, arched windows and opulent chandeliers. While at the same time boasting simple, neutral décor that is fully customisable to suit your taste and theme. It is also very flexible in terms of layout options.

Likewise, the age-old cellars feel welcoming and unusually modern – especially with a DJ in situ. The rustic Vaulted Cellar with exposed stone walls features festoon string lights, well-placed mood lighting and a sizeable dancefloor. Meanwhile, the smaller Wine Cellar pairs a classic banqueting table with a glass-walled wine display to provide an intriguing focal point.

Kings Head Hotel Wedding Ceremonies

As a leading Cotswolds wedding venue, Kings Head Hotel Gloucestershire is licensed to host civil ceremonies in multiple rooms. Indoor ceremonies are held in the panelled Library featuring bookcases displaying antiques or in the grand and airy Assembly Room. Or during the summer, you may prefer an outdoor ceremony on the secluded roof terrace. Otherwise, if you’d like a religious service, the beautiful St John The Baptist Church is just over the road.

Kings Head Hotel Wedding Receptions

The open-air terrace is also popular for casual drinks receptions following a church wedding or indoor ceremony. Meanwhile, intimate dinners can be held in the Wine Cellar and larger feasts in the Assembly Room. Want to skip straight to partying? The low-lit and surprisingly roomy Vaulted Cellar with bar offers a memorable backdrop and space for a band or DJ.
