Dunbar House was my first choice and we are so happy to have chosen this place as our wedding venue. Every single person in the process made us feel welcome and special. It was a pleasure to deal with Bree from Dunbar House who helped us put together the most perfect day within our budget. They are highly professional and make planning a wedding so easy. Thank you to everyone at Dunbar House for making it the perfect day.

Just a perfect venue for weddings. It has stunning interiors, waterfront views and a very experienced and professional staff. I`m very happy with my choice. Mila

Stunning venue, professional staff, amazing food. A few annoying points: 1- They don't provide any table numbers, name cards, or menu cards and you need to print your own. 2- The projector was faulty and displayed static. They even charge it as an 'add on' to switch it on.

We chose Dunbar House because of the beautiful location, and the amazing staff. It was our absolute best decision in the wedding planning process. Olive and the staff on the day were so friendly, accomodating and flexible, and make us feel so special. The food was impeccable, the day ran so smoothly, and we had an amazing evening that we, our family and our friends won't forget in our lifetime.
