We had our ceremony & reception at Sergeants Mess in March 2017. It was raining and luckily the venue had a wet weather option indoors. We were glad that both the ceremony and reception went as planned. The venue itself is gorgeous with vast water views, both venue coordinator and manager were helpful and ensured that the wedding went well, the food was fantastic - my guests loved the food! The venue is spacious - there's a "boardroom" downstairs that we have used for our tea ceremony and a bridal room that both my bridesmaids and I have used to freshen up. All in all, Sergeants Mess is a fantastic venue for brides looking for classy and modern venue.

I couldn't have asked for better service for our wedding day and all the days that led up to it. Hands down- perfect.

Beautiful venue. Amazing food. Our wedding coordinator was so responsive and helpful to the flood of emails I sent. Flexible with meeting requirements as well - we had 2 ceremonies. Church, and then traditional sri lankan ceremony from 6.30-7pm as part of reception. Everything was smooth sailing. Highly recommend.
