The Pumping House is a beautiful Grade II listed Nottinghamshire wedding venue, featuring two licensed ceremony rooms, main hall for wedding breakfasts, accommodation and a large lawn for outdoor drinks receptions. Late licensed to 1am, our beautiful red brick building, still featuring the original and distinctive chimney, is located on a six-acre site in the heart of Sherwood Forest. The tranquil surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for weddings and offers ample opportunity for unique photography. The Pumping House is just a short drive from Sheffield, Nottingham, Lincoln and Mansfield.

The Ollerton Room has beautifully unique parquet flooring and is filled with natural light from the original paned windows, creating the perfect setting for wedding ceremonies against a backdrop of tranquil surroundings. The Ollerton Room is the main room licensed for civil ceremonies with seating for up to 100 guests. The Engine Hall is also licensed for civil ceremonies from 80 to 150 guests.

Guests can enjoy a drink and canapes following the ceremony in either, or both, The Conservatory Room and The Oak Room. These rooms are a convenient and versatile space, beautifully themed and have an additional bar area. Both rooms can also be used as a more relaxing area in the evening for those guests who seek a quieter space.

We absolutely loved the venue!
by Naomi Bairstow - Married June 2019

My husband and I got married at The Pumping House in June and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day - and experience in the build up to the big day! Jo looked after us from our first visit, she was so lovely and really helpful with our planning. On the day the Pumping House team made sure everything ran smoothly, and we had so so many lovely comments from guests on how fab the venue was, how good the food was and how friendly the staff were. We absolutely loved the venue for it's uniqueness, and the fact it is perfect whatever the weather; our wedding day was a mix of rain and shine, and so guests were able to enjoy the outside space as well as all the beautiful rooms inside. We cannot recommend this venue enough - thank you so much Jo and all the team for helping us to have the most special wedding day! Love Mr and Mrs Bairstow xxx

I just want to go and do it all again!
by Aimi Oatley - Married May 2019

We got married at The Pumping House on 11th May and I honestly cannot think of the words to do it justice - we just absolutely loved it. It’s such a beautiful building and we loved how there were so many different rooms to be used. Lian was amazing with the planning - answering all of our questions without delay and just being generally lovely. Nothing was too much trouble. She was equally as amazing on the day. She kept us calm and made sure everything ran super smoothly - we felt in very safe hands The food was delicious and all of the staff were polite and professional. I just want to go and do it all again!!

The most incredible venue!
by Becky Money - Married April 2019

My husband and I recently got married at the Pumping House, and it was truly the most incredible venue and day we could have had! As soon as we visited we knew instantly it was the place for us. There’s so much character and versatility in the venue, and you can add as much or as little as you want. All of the side rooms add the extra little touch, with ceremony and main engine room just stunning. We also got some amazing photos in the woods outside, and the venue was incredible in both rain and sunshine! Ellie and her team made the process and day itself stress free and enjoyable to plan. Everything was taken care of during the day allowing my husband and I just to enjoy our wedding celebrations. We cannot thank the pumping house team enough for helping us have the most special wedding! Xxx
