I Do Wedding Awards Finalist

I Do Wedding Awards Finalist

We were a finalist this year at the I Do Wedding Awards for Best Wedding Venue! Congratulations to the winner and the other finalists.
I Do Magazine is the vogue of wedding magazines, a luxurious annual which brides treasure. It is read by over 30,000 brides and grooms every year and is widely considered as the brides bible when finding out the very best local wedding suppliers.
Over the last 7 years, I Do Magazine has grown to become a house-hold name in the wedding community throughout Yorkshire, Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire. Along with the magazine, I Do hosts 4 of the largest and most prestigious one day wedding exhibitions of their kind in the Country.

Never fails to impress!

Over the past 2 years or so we have visited many times for meals and celebrations at different times including our daughter's wedding in September last year, which was a perfect weekend from the Friday night when 4 of us arrived, through the day itself on the Saturday and to our departure on the Sunday after a delicious breakfast for all the guests who had stayed the night. The staff were very attentive throughout, paid attention to detail and nothing was too much trouble. The wedding was a day to remember, with all the guests commenting how much they had enjoyed it.
We have never been disappointed with the service or the meals and our last visit on February 6th where we enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal and drinks was again outstanding.
We were not rushed and in fact enjoyed a leisurely 3 hours or so chatting, eating and drinking.The four of us all had different starters, main course, desserts and coffees which were all served piping hot, (except for cold desserts of course). We always feel very comfortable, welcome, and can honestly say we have never had a bad meal in the 2 years or so that we have been visiting. We have loyalty cards and enjoy the benefits of them.
Looking forward to next time!

Veggie Heaven

Last used this restaurant a year ago, and yet again not disappointed. The amazing vegetarian menu even tempted two of our meat eaters. Between the six of us we sampled much of the menu, tasting and sharing each others choices as everything seemed so delicious, we really were spoilt for choice. Might have to meet up in six months just to eat there again!

Lunch time visit

We have just come home after having lunch, the meal overall was good, with excellent service.
My wife had the salmon dish which was very much enjoyed, I ordered Lamb Rogan Josh, unfortunately it was unlike any I have had before. I should have questioned it, but british like, I said nothing. I have to say whatever I had it was very nice. Getting home I looked it up on the net. Dozens of pictures. but none like I had.
My meal looked like a roll of pulled meat, with added vegetables. Unlike the pictures on the net, no sauce or gravy, very dry. I did mention all this to the staff, but got no response.

Dream Wedding

We had our wedding, ceremony and reception, at Hotel Van Dyk. From start to finish they made sure that everything was perfect. They paid attention to all the little bits that we couldn't during our special day. We've had nothing but compliments from family and friends who came to help us celebrate about the service, the staff, and the food.
We couldn't have picked a better weddings team than the one we had for our day. Michelle and her team were amazing and nothing was too much trouble.
Also... TRY THE BROWNIES!!!!

Sunday Lunch

Lovely place all looks very upmarket. Friendly and helpful staff. Very good choice on the menu. Service was very good, not rushed. Five in our group and all starters and mains were well presented and cooked to our liking. Roast beef and lamb very good, nice and pink. Not cheap but worth it.

“Local Lunch”

Even though a venue has good revues, because it's local, we tend not to frequent it.
My wife and I live 5 miles from Van Dykes, but have not been, until a few days ago, when we went for a midweek lunch. It was superb. good menu, good food, good service. It was pleasant weather, but not nice enough to eat outside. Pity, because the outside dining areas are lovely. ( If only we had a real summer.) We only experienced the basics of what the hotel has to offer, but, I believe if you live in the Sheffield, Rotherham, Worksop area, and you want a wedding venue, a cabaret/dinner night out, or just a quality meal for two, you can not go wrong.

“What a wonderful wedding”

Firstly I would like to thank all the staff for giving my daughter a very special day .
From start to finish the service was exceptional even when we were in the gardens and serving the hors d'oeuvres - Wow - My dad who is 91 loved them and really stuffed himself lol .
Well the wedding ceremony was so professionally done and it felt so good for everyone there especially me as father of the bride .
The layout of the functions room was tasteful to say the least and to be honest it was immaculate inside and out . Everything was "Spot on" .
Having been to Van Dykes since 1974 I knew the food would be good . However with 60 people to cater for I thought it may be a challenge ! No problem whatsoever it was Excellent .
Brill day Brill food and Brill staff - Thankyou
