Great communication leading up to our wedding. Not to many emails and not to little. The night was awesome, the venue was beautiful, the drinks were awesome and the food was delicious. Totally exceeded out expectations.

We had our extremely belated wedding reception at Poodle and loved it! Amazing service, super cool venue and high quality food and drinks without feeling pretentious. The food is fantastic and there's no risk of being underfed like at some weddings, all of our guests have told us how much they enjoyed the canapés (prawn cocktail was the crowd favorite). The upstairs space is perfect for an intimate gathering, we had around 45 people and it didn't feel to cramped or too empty, and there were plenty of spaces for quiet conversations or a good dance. Melinda was really helpful and accommodating in helping us plan the day, and our event coordinator on the night, Monet, was so friendly and attentive. Even though it was around 2.5 years late it was a beautiful night and we're so pleased we chose Poodle for it.

A beautiful space which doesn’t really require any styling or money spent on accessorising. We loved the indoor outdoor offering, and we had guests roaming about the whole venue throughout the night- there was always somewhere to chill, somewhere to eat, and somewhere to party. We also had a great experience with the staff, and of course the food and drinks are unmatched in terms of quality and deliciousness. Would highly recommend!
