“We had our wedding reception here on the 30th June, and it’s hard to put into words how absolutely fantastic it was. The events manager was brilliant and helped with every aspect of the wedding, the food was delicious and the bar team did a wonderful job of keeping glasses topped up. We were very lucky with the weather, but we feel that even if it hadn’t been hot and sunny, we would still have had a wonderful day. Thank you so much to The Garden Bar, we will never forget the effort you put into our big day. Anna & Aaron”

“I hired the garden bar for my sister’s hen do on 9th June and I have to say I was very impressed. Being from London all the organising was done over the phone and over email. Annamari who was dealing with the arrangements always replied straight away and really helped me with any requests I had. On the night the staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. The food was great and lots of it. Would definitely recommend and would definitely hire again. Thanks for making my sister’s hen a night to remember.”

“Celebrated my 55th birthday here and we had a ball! The booking experience was a breeze. The manager was very flexible. Food was great and the staff was friendly. The spacious beer garden was a real surprise. We had our own separate entrance and bathrooms which was lovely for our private party.”

“We booked this venue after searching the internet for a post-funeral celebration. We were let down by our first choice but we are so pleased we were. The food, space, and staff were amazing. We would highly recommend this venue.”

“We reserved the left-hand-side of the pub for a family function.
40 adults with 15 children all catered by the Garden Bar. Their selection of food was fantastic. I was sure we had ordered too much when the food came out, but everyone kept going back for seconds and we ate the lot! I highly recommend the Garden Bar. The staff was so nice and pleasant and everyone had a great time.”

“My partner and I chose the Garden Bar for our wedding, and it was such a good decision! We had the best day and much of this was down to the pub and the very hardworking team there. The event manager Annamari helped us from start to finish create the day we wanted – nothing was too much trouble and she was incredibly relaxed about all of our requests. On the day the venue transformed into something Pinterest-worthy, we dropped off the decorations the day before and the morning of the wedding the team put them all up and made it look absolutely stunning.
Finally, the food was delicious, and everyone was well catered for. The drinks kept flowing all day thanks to the friendly bar staff and everyone was very very happy. Thank you so much The Garden Bar! We had a day better than what we could have ever imagined.”

“I held my daughters first birthday here as the majority of the guests were adults and the staff went above and beyond to make it special for us.
The buffet food was amazing and for what we paid we were surprised at the quantity. Thank you so very much for helping to make the day extra special! We will be booking all future events with you guys.”
