The perfect venue to host our special day! Tom and Megan helped us navigate our way through planning a wedding around a pandemic and the ever changing rules. They promptly answered our never ending questions and nothing was ever a drama for them. The team at the Garden Bar & Kitchen provide impeccable customer service and are only too happy to help. On the many occasions we have stopped in for a meal the food has always been amazing and our wedding day was no exception with many of our guests commenting on the delicious food. The Old Shed provided the perfect ceremony space and was exactly what we had envisioned for our day. We can’t thank the team enough for making our special day what it was, the Garden Bar & Kitchen will always hold a special place in our hearts.

The Garden Bar and Kitchen exceeded any expectations I had for hosting my wedding. From email communication to meetings, all my requests and concerns were dealt with in a professional matter. Nothing was too much. I was always made to feel like they heard me and understood me, which is so important when planning your big day. The day/night was run with precision. The staff were lovely. Alice, the wedding coordinator, was on top of her game. And the owners, Megan and Tom tick every box when you think of what you want in a wedding venue and its hosts. I've had multiple guests report how much they loved the food and how stunning the venue is-which is no surprise to me. Incredibly happy with me experience. It was a night to remember

Thank you Megan, Tom, Brian and all the team at The Garden Bar & Kitchen for an incredible day. We got married at the end of April in The Old Shed and were so pleased with the intimate setting for our 40-odd guests. After a beautiful ceremony and some photos nearby, we joined our guests at The Garden Bar & Kitchen for an afternoon of great food, great service and great company! We've received so much feedback from our guests raving about the quality of the food and how much they loved the venue! We couldn't be happier and cannot recommend The Garden Bar & Kitchen enough! From day one, Megan and Tom were so accommodating and helpful in organising the day and we were lucky enough to have Brian coordinating the event on the day - what a great team! Thank you again - Charlotte & Frankie
