Price included 3 course meal for 100, canapes, drinks, cake, venue, decorations, flowers, staff, logistics. Loved everything, we had comments from all our guests about how amazing it all was. Beautiful heritage building and pretty decorations. Delicious food, excellent service. Thankyou to Jarrah and team, I'd recommend to everyone

What a beautiful venue tucked away in the middle of the CBD. Nothing was to much for Jarrah and the hot dish team. They transformed the venue into the gorgeous romantic setting we wanted full of tea lights and flowers. The food was delicious with very generous portions. The outdoor courtyard is brilliant at night with the city backdrop. All in all it made for a magical venue!

Eastern Hill Dining Hall and all their staff were amazing to work with from the start. Their attention to detail and obvious passion for their work shines through everything they do. We wanted a rustic feel, not only the decorations and table setting, but also the food. The food was absolutely amazing! The team invited us for a taste tester evening and they went above and beyond with everything. We instantly felt like part of the family. Nothing was ever too much trouble, too big or too small for them to do! They just did what ever they needed to do to make our day the most amazing and special day of our lives. We would highly recommend Eastern Hill as a place for a spectacular, relaxed, rustic wedding with fabulous food and wine! Thank you so much Eastern Hill Team! You’re the best!

Had about 100 guests and it was a great venue and looks amazing under candle light. Just a couple of issues - there are no bridal suite, and we had our wedding in June and the hall was not warm enough, a lot of our guests kept their jackets on

Convenient place for a wedding, right in the middle of the CBD and easy access to public transport. Once inside the compound though it seems like we were transported back to another era with its beautiful gardens and heritage buildings.
