My Wife and I were lucky enough to have our Wedding here on Saturday 13th November and what an Amazing Choice… Sean, Kellie and all the staff have been brilliant., so easy to deal with and the night could not have turned out better…. The food was by far the best I have had was just a pity we missed the Canapés as I heard they were something special as well, not an empty plate went back…. If anyone was considering the Grand for any function I would Highly Recommend as I/we could not fault anything…. Thank you for helping us make our Wedding Day Amazing we will be forever grateful ❤️

This venue was stunning. Kellie and Shaun were really responsive and super wonderful. They were so accommodating with our requests. The owner was on site coordinating food and staff on the day of the wedding. Absolutely amazing food. We had the pork and salmon. The portions were huge and it was delicious. The staff made sure I was the priority and made sure that I was looked after all day. Overall and absolutely amazing venue, I would 100% recommend them to anyone!
