Normanby house was everything I wanted and more. Homely and inviting yet classy at the same time. Tony was fantastic. Very supportive and flexible, catering to our every need. We had an absolute ball.

Best decision my groom and I made going with Normanby House for our wedding reception. Tony (Manager) and his team made the whole experience stress free and enjoyable. All our needs and requests were handled with care and consideration. We are immensely grateful. Highly recommended.

Tony was so easy to deal with, he was unbelievable. He understood what our family needed, and was very accommodating. Tony was easy to get in contact with and we could not fault the night at all. Tony was on top of everything, he made sure everyone had a good time.

We loved it. If there was a hiccup I didn't know about it. The night went well. Tony took care of everything on the night and made sure all our guests were taken of. The food was amazing as well. Tony made us feel at home!

Everything went as to plan. The staff were fantastic and the service was exceptional on the day. All my guests were treated well on the day. The venue itself was absolutely beautiful. We fell in love it with the moment we saw it. It's very well maintained and we would recommended it to anyone looking for a Victorian style venue. They went above and beyond for us doing a full Vegan menu. The only thing I would say is be very clear about what you do and don't want to happen and what is agreed upon for the day!

We were very happy. The owner was really friendly and very flexible with us. Tony listened to what we wanted. He was laid back but still polite and very approachable.

Tony the manager was really easy to deal with. We made a few appointments to see him before hand and he was always on time and really helpful. The reception ran really smoothly and everything was in order. The food was good quality and came out in a timely manner.
