@BriansBride:  Wow. That is really a bizarre-o experience you’ve had! I honestly don’t know what to say about how you’ve been treated there. If you’re willing to spend the time to give them one more try, maybe when you schedule another appointment with them you can emphasize the fact that you’ve visited previously, but it happened to be such a busy day there that day that you weren’t able to find anybody who was free to help you out and show you around or to explain the menu items. Maybe ask for the name of a person you can ask for when you arrive?

The only experience I have with Round Hill is as a wedding guest. My friend had her ceremony and wedding here several years ago in the fall (I wanna say maybe 6 or 7 years ago?). I don’t know anything about her experience dealing with the staff, but I get the sense that she didn’t have any problems. (Granted, she is a lawyer, so she has a “no nonsense” air about her.) She and her husband go back to Round Hill every year to celebrate their anniversary.

As a guest, I really liked the venue a lot. It wasn’t your typical cookie-cutter wedding venue. It was just really warm and cozy and lovely…perfect for a fall or winter wedding. We had cocktails and appetizers in a room that reminded me of a really nice living room (in a good way) – it was ideal for mingling and getting to know the other guests. The appetizer spread was amazing and delish (caviar, smoked salmon, lots of fancy stuff). I didn’t like the dinner hall as well as the room where we had the appetizers, but it was still nice. I was really full from the appetizers, so I don’t remember what the actual meal was like! I was also too full for the cake, but my friend still raves about how much she loved her wedding cake.

The catering staff were professional and competent. 

So sorry that you’ve had such a rotten experience so far! Hope things turn around for you.

  • Wedding: August 2013

I would normally say don’t give the place another chance but I’m booked at Round Hill and have NEVER had any kind of experience similar to that. I found they have bent over backward to assist us in making the right decisions to help make our wedding exactly what we wanted. 

Did you attend a tasting or a “bride’s day tasting?” I think the bride’s day tastings are geared towards brides who have already booked a date. Beforehand, I was given a time slot with a person to help hammer out the details of the wedding, which is what most people are there for. 

I know there is another tasting July 15th- maybe you should give it another shot? It truly is beautiful and I’m really lookng forward to getting married there.

I worked with Peter (the owner) and found him to be very accomodating. I can’t speak for certain yet becuase I haven’t had the wedding yet, but so far FEAST has been great to work with. I hope you have a “turn around experience!” Please keep us posted on what you decide and best of luck 🙂

  • Wedding: November 1999

We got married there in Sept 2013. Amazing staff, and amazing experience. We had lots of request and questions before we even booked and Peter and his staff were more than helpful. I would give it another shot. Plan another tasing before you decide (I went to 4 different tasting: 1st with DH, 2nd with Mom & sisters, 3rd sign contract, 4th Bride day). Good luck!
