Lemore Manor is one of Herefordshire’s finest wedding, corporate and function venues and has been a labour of love for its owners Margaret and Ben Owen for the last decade.

A large orangery with glistening chandeliers opens out to the terrace and gardens and lends a glamorous Gatsby style theme with its cocktail bar and ample room for tables (seat up to 120 guests), dancing, your live band and all of your happy guests.
