The team at St Andrews Conservatory/The Pumphouse were amazing!
Susan, Jasmin & Tony made the whole process so easy! It was great being able to go to the venue before we booked it and see what it looked like set up for other weddings and Susan was always able to answer all our questions. After our pre-wedding meeting with Jasmin I knew that she had everything under control and the night would run smoothly, which it did! Nothing was too much of a hassle for Jasmin on the night.
We loved that our guests could pick their own meals and our guests had so many compliments about the food. Definitely glad we picked St Andrews!
We are so glad you picked us too Danielle!! Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review and share your experience with us! Your wedding was so beautiful, as were all your guests! It was an absolute pleasure hosting your wedding reception and we wish you and James all the best for the future! Susan, Jasmin & the St Andrews Conservatory team xx
Susan was our function coordinator and put simply, she is clearly the best in the business. She was attentive, organised, and reassuring. Susan was always quick to respond to any queries we had in the lead up to the day. On the day, she was present and ready to assist in any way required. I've no doubt the reason the wedding went so smoothly was because of Susan (and her Deputy, Alison).
St. Andrews Conservatory is PURE MAGIC. The Quality of service is second to none. The venue speaks for itself - it is well decorated, functional in design and is the perfect space for a mid-sized wedding (we had a cocktail wedding of approx 120 guests). The staff were so polite and went above and beyond to ensure our guests had the best time.
Most importantly, this venue is incredibly well priced.
I cannot fault this venue. All I can say is BOOK IT! you won't regret it.
Nathan and Sheridan! Thank you so much for your kind review! Your wedding was so lovely and we all still think of it often! You were such a gorgeous couple to work with - makes our job so easy! All the best for the future and hopefully we see you back at the Hotel again sometime soon, Susan & the St Andrews Conservatory team xx
I cant fault St Andrews! We had a cocktail reception and our guests could not believe how full they were! Food was delicious and the staff attentive and polite. Venue Manager Susan made us feel instantly comfortable and liaising with her prior to our wedding was a breeze. No question was too silly and we had no doubt that everything would run smoothly with her at the helm. So many of our guests have been asking how we found such a phenomenal venue! Would definitely recommend!
Both Jasmin and Susan were fantastic contacts throughout the whole process. Our guests were blown away by the food options and ordering from a menu, as well as the extensive drink choices. We were told that there were music restrictions due to being in a residential street, however we found the music to be more than loud enough to keep the majority of our guests on the dance floor! Great value for money too when we compared to other reception options. Thanks again team!
Hi John and Lizzie! Thank you so so much for your lovely review! It was an absolute pleasure hosting your wedding reception and we are thrilled everyone (most importantly yourselves) has such a great time! Hopefully we see you again soon, Susan xx
