We celebrated our wedding day at Banjo Patterson Cottage. We were expecting really good quality service and food, but you surprised us and exceeded our expectations...!! We all had brilliant time, with many of my friends and family vowing to return. Great location, fantastic views, the wait staff were all lovely, and the food was delicious, and a special mention for Shack, who added a wonderful positive energy to the whole wedding... what more could one want ? Thank you so much Robert for helping us organise everything on our wonderful day.. Kindest regards Tani and Christine

This is the perfect venue if your looking for a ceremony and reception in one for an intimate wedding. The gardens are beautiful with stunning waterviews and the restaurant produced exceptionally good food for a party of 35 with friendly yet professional service.

Banjo Paterson was brilliant! Robert was super helpful throughout the whole process and the main waitress Denise was a true asset to this business. The food is really special, not your typical “chicken and beef” wedding, this food is yum. Our wedding day looked like rain but it managed to hold off and the venue were more that happy to move our inside ceremony back outside for us so we could have our dream ceremony. The venue is absolutely beautiful, beautiful building, gardens, food and staff. It was a really special day for us!

I can truly rate the restraunt 10 out of 10!!! Food: amazing, hearty beautiful dishes, sofisticated and tasty, compliments to the chef! Staff: the restraubt manager was sooooo helpful, he made us feel that everything is under control of a caring professional, answering all the questions and giving tips Venue: come and see for yourself, cosy cottage on the waterfront, and the garden can competw with the Botanical Gardens I reckon. All the photos greatly benefit from the lush green of the lawns and trees.
