We worked with the wonderful Peter from Merrimu as a room hire and he was an absolute delight to work with. he looked after all of our requests and gave us advice where required. he was so flexible with times to meet our needs and always patient. the venue itself is beautiful and looked after all our needs with a bridal suite upstairs for some privacy too!. the place is nice and intimate for medium sized weddings and it was great that the guests were walking up to the bridal table as it wasn't too far or too high from the dance floor. we had the perfect night dancing the night away and it was thanks to Peter and his team at merrimu for looking after us!


Thank you for your kind words, we are delighted that you had a wonderful experience with Merrimu. We wish you all the very best for the future and thank you for letting us host your special day.

This is a fantastic venue! We had our wedding in the Merrimu Room and it was perfect. The food was delicious, the staff were attentive and accommodating, and the room was beautiful. Our guests were also very impressed and we are all still raving about it. Peter is amazing to work with, so genuine and open to our ideas, and most importantly he was contactable and quick to respond to our calls and emails. I highly recommend this venue.

The staff at Merrimu Reception made our service easy and comfortable. Their meals were exceptional - with their beef cheeks and trio of dessert as a stand out. The set up of the room was exactly what I envisioned. A highly recommended reception for a larger wedding like ours.

First class reception center! Meals were beautiful, service was professional and friendly. Could not fault a thing. We had our reception in the Grand Ball Room, and it was perfect. Lovely upstairs bridal room, and the stairs make for a great entrance! The staff are exceptionally welcoming and professional.

Simply could not fault this venue. Everything was spot on. Catering for over 300 guests is not easy but there was not a complaint to be heard! Food and service was sensational!

Everyone loved the reception, the food & service in particular. Joe & Peter were great & made sure that everything ran smoothly. The only thing, they didn't put cake bags on all tables so people didn't take cake home so they threw the cake out,, which was a waste.

Professional with a wealth of experience in wedding do's and dont's. The venue suited the capacity of our wedding seating 260 guests comfortably with the dance floor enabling everyone to rock the night away. The meals came out in a timely manner and the guests were satisfied. We highly recommend.
