Wedding Venue

Choosing a wedding venue isn’t easy, and you have to strike a tricky balance between the fairytale castle (cold and echo-y!) and the practical, local and affordable. You’ll need a lot of help and the best service to make your Big Day run smoothly, so the management and staff at your wedding venue are as important as the venue itself, if not more so.

If you’re anywhere near Thurrock then The Springhouse is a fantastic choice for a wedding venue – their staff will bend over backwards right from the start to deliver your dream wedding, whether its for 20 guests or 250.

Their experienced management team can advise you on all arrangements down to the smallest details, and will be on-hand throughout the planning and the day itself to assist you as much or as little as you wish. Most importantly, they will ensure you can relax in confidence and enjoy the company of your guests.

The Springhouse team invite you to make an appointment to view the facilities and discuss your requirements, with no obligation of course. If you don’t go, you won’t know!  


On Sunday afternoons the club becomes a carvery restaurant open to both members and non-members. After some tasty starters, and before the tempting desserts, go for one of the carvery roasts or veggie options such as:

  • Roast Topside Of Beef with Yorkshire Pudding
  • Honey Roasted Gammon with Pease Pudding
  • RoastNorfolkTurkeywith stuffing
  • Grilled Salmon with New Potatoes
  • Open Cauliflower Cheese Tart
