Gardens on Forest were fantastic!! Amazing service, fantastic food and a brilliant night had by all. I highly recommend them, their attention to detail was great, they were extremely attentive all night and kept us well informed leading up to and on the day. Brilliant Venue!

All I can say is thank you making our day magical. The whole team is so easy to deal with, especially my event manager, Michelle. There was a change of management 6 months before the wedding, but Michelle honor all agreement we had and very accommodating. All of my suppliers also mention that she's very easy to deal with. During the night, we had a bride attendance and floor manager to ensure everything runs smoothly. I was not worried about a single thing & really enjoy the night. The only negative thing I can spot is there wasn't enough waiters. Half of the table still didn't get food whilst the others already finish their meal. Some tables also waited for a long time to get water and drinks. My steak was also cold when I got it.

Bit pricey for just a Garden Ceremony but it is a really lovely place for a Ceremony and for photos to be taken.

We were looked after by Lani and Teresa, they were very personable and professional. We liased with them for 6 months, the service was amazing. The Venue has such a classical heritage. Recommend, recommend, recommend!

What amazing service!!!!!! My husband and I were looking at so many venues for weeks and could not find something within our budget to cater our requests. When we found this venue they exceeded our expectations; their packages, venue and service was outstanding. On the night, we got to see their true service and we could not fault a thing! EVERYONE loved the food, the MC, the service, the music and the venue itself. The only criticism that we received was 'they ran out of pork belly'. Highly recommend The Gardens on Forest. There are no hidden costs and you are able to go in as many times as you want before the day with your family and friends if need be. 10/10

We had both of our ceremony and reception together on site. We had no hiccups. The staff were awesome. Theresa, the coordinator, is a lovely lady. Maria the functions manager was excellent. Beautiful room and everything went smoothly.

I was extremely happy with their service! The food was fantastic - very fresh and delivered on time. The guests were happy and we were happy! They met everyone dietary requirement.

22 Jan 2016

Quite nice and relaxing atmosphere. Staff was excellent on the day. Food was superb. A touch annoying that we had to provide proof of the deal we signed as they hadn't got that as their current promotion. One would think tbey would've kept it as a record

18 Dec 2015

Friendly staff, beautiful venue and amazing food. Could not have picked a better place to have our wedding.

15 Mar 2015

There were a little bit of organisational bumps along the way. But on the day of the reception, we were happy with them!
