Hi Sally

A big thank you for the Medieval night at the Con Club, it was a really enjoyable evening something totally different for most people. I was in a group of 6 and all enjoyed it immensely. The food was really good in fact  everything about the evening went superbly well.

Dear Sally

 Thank you for your email, your team were very professional and the furniture looked great. 

Here are a couple of pics of the furniture in situ.


Best regards, Jan




I’d like to submit a testimonial if I may, please find some images attached.

‚ÄėThe wooden bench hire team have been a dream to work with, making correspondence, collection and return of props a stress free and friendly experience. The beautiful Victorian decoupage scream made the perfect backdrop to our diy photo booth and the flat bed cart and barrels were a great addition to our market scene from which champagne and canopies were laid out!¬†

The whole process for hiring the tables and benches was excellent.

All my questions were answered directly, with very friendly staff on the other end of the phone.

I had to delay collection for a day and this was not a problem and easily managed.

The delivery and collection man was great to work with.

Overall a very efficient and friendly service,

The wooden bench hire company were wonderful to work with when planning seating for our recent wedding. Everything was easy from start to finish and the furniture itself was perfect and arrived in wonderful condition. I would definitely use again and recommend the company hugely moving forward. 


I have had an absolutely fantastic experience with wooden bench hire. They were consistently helpful on the phone, and always contactable

They way in which the company is run is extremely efficient, and simple, proving paperwork, or email back up for every phone conversation or transaction, directions to their site etc, so you know where you left off, and life is much more simple!! 

The tables and chairs I hired for my wedding were fantastic! They make and repair all their furniture on site, so its all in fab condition!! Their assorted chair collection is beautiful 

I would highly recommend these guys to anyone organising an event

Rachel Corbould

The flexibility of your team in order to turn around the tables in time was amazing! The set-up was perfect and the tables fit the space just as we wanted. I couldn’t find any other furniture company that were as accommodating.

Caroline Russell

‚ÄúWoodenbench hire are the perfect partners for atmospheric furnishing and at great prices, too! Also very happy with the service you provided, both on the phone and with the helpful delivery crew. Our evening was a great success ‚Äď the different interior items made all the difference.

I hope to work with you soon again!‚ÄĚ


I wanted to say a big thank you to yourself and Bob for all of your lovely tables and chairs that we used at our event yesterday.

 That room looked fab when set up, and your furniture along with a few hessian table runners, basil plants and nightlights, really gave the space that rustic style we were going for.

Delivery and collection were both smooth. The guys set everything up perfectly and were very helpful sorting out the stock this morning on collection.Overall the event went really well and the clients words were, ‚ÄėI didn‚Äôt ever expect it to look this good‚Äô. So success all round I think!

Cat at Plain Jane Events

The tables and benches were a perfect fit for our wedding, they looked great and were in keeping with our relaxed feel. Lesley was really helpful and I would definitely recommend your services to friends.

Thank you so much to Lesley and the team at Medieval Banquet Hire for providing all the props for our event No1. Balkan Express, in partnership with Colchester Firstsite Art gallery. Our event was a Gypsy music and dance night at Colchesters Firstsite Arts venue in support of a local charity. Having sorted the music and dance, we needed to decorate the venue in order to provide a fantastic gypsy-style atmosphere. After asking around we contacted Medieval Banquet Hire to see if they had any suggestions or ideas, since we werent sure whether they would have any gypsy style props. They were great and couldnt have been more helpful. Lesley talked us through all of the available props that they had , that might fit to the gypsy theme. In the event they delivered a fantastic set of props which fitted perfectly to the event and helped make it a great success.

Thanks lesley for being so helpful in making my daughters 21st a great success! You were both really lovely to work with.

Many thanks Gill

Plain Jane Events would like to thank Medieval Banquet Hire for providing a faultless service for our medieval themed event this June. Lesley was very helpful, organised and friendly throughout, even going out of her way to get in items that weren’t currently stocked to ensure we had everything we requested. The benches, flags and set of stocks all provided a great atmosphere, and the costumes and tabards really got the staff in character. Delivery and collection went ahead as scheduled, and the event ended up being a real success. I would absolutely recommend Medieval Banquet Hire, and hope to use them again in the future.

Cat Arnold, Plain Jane Events

We were absolutely delighted with the service you provided and in particular how you went out of your way to put things right when there was a slight mix up with the costumes! The medieval  package was just perfect and transformed a plain old tractor shed into a spectacular, atmospheric banqueting hall for our sons 18th birthday party, we considered trying to do this ourselves but Im so glad we didnt! The costumes were all fantastic too, thank you again!

Rose, Canterbury

Hi Lesley All the very best and thank you so much, it was very pleasant to meet you both and become acqainted! I have no doubt we will cross swords/jousts again one day in the not too distant! All the very best, am off to bed!!!!  (Stag do recovery).

Sorry, I forgot to send you a massive thank you for all your help in sorting this all out. Andrew (the groom) had a wonderful time and it was a lot easier then I anticipated to sort everything out! Thanks again. Again, fantastic support from yourself throughout and I suspect I may get roped into doing another mediieval batchelor party soon!  It was fantastic!


Wanted to say a huge thank you for the Medieval hire things you provided for our wedding in February we really couldnt have created our Medieval theme without it!! Also really appreciate all the help and advice you gave as well as generally ensuring everything went as smoothly as possible all the items were amazing and everyone was totally bowled over by the setup! I have attached some pics of the venue.

Rebecca Peterborough

Just wanted to pass on my thanks for the smooth supply and delivery of the benches hired for last Fridays wedding here at Penshurst Place. The grand medieveal hall looked truly amazing and the Bride and Groom had a fantastic day.
Thank you so much for making Medieval Wedding come true! Our Medieval Marquee was astoundingly beautiful, filled with your furniture, crockery, cutlery and props etc. It was vital that we could make our Medieval personal in creation and your services allowed us to do this. You have been at hand Lesley, every bit of the way and its been lovely to have a Wedding Contact that is so flexible and able to work with their Bride and Groom. I wish you every success in the future and will be spreading the word! Thank you once again. Blessed Be.

‚Äė‚ÄôWe must thank you two for a lovely evening.¬† Thank you very much for all the hard work you did. The evening went really well.¬† I think people were taken back when they came in to the hall.¬† It looked lovely. I‚Äôve had so many people coming to me to say what a great evening they had‚Äô‚Äė

Collette from Salisbury

‚ÄúFollowing on from our Christmas Party I would just like to extend the praise received from our guests to you and acknowledge your contribution to what was an amazing event.¬† Your expertise has proved invaluable and the party wouldn‚Äôt have been half as good without the quality and authenticity of the services you provided.¬† I would, without hesitation, recommend your services to anyone considering such an event. Many Thanks.‚ÄĚ

Michael, Birmingham

‚Äė‚ÄôWe just wanted to say a huge thank you! The package which we hired from you was amazing, our guests were speechless and a few even shed a few tears! It was an amazing day!‚Äô‚Äô

Eleanor, Dorset

Once again many thanks for the wonderful day which has never stopped being talked about to this day.We would never have managed without all your equipment and assistance.From the tables,benches,plates,goblets and medieval decor, it was unbelievable how everything blended in with Alisons original plans and the area were so lucky to live in. Welcome back any time to see your new  friends. Thanks again.

Darrin,Alison and the fortunate 600 guests.

Wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help in organising the medieval props for our event. The whole evening was a success and everyone enjoyed the
authentic looking props you provided. The stocks and man in armour were a big hit!! Please pass on a big thanks to your hubby for letting me have a lie in Saturday morning rather than coming to assist with the collection. Much appreciated after the heavy night!! Once again would definitely recommend you to anyone who wants a great medieval party. Will be sure to send you some pictures asap.

Kind Regards Carlo, Surrey
