Great view, amazing food! Service was well above our expectations! This was from the very start when we booked the venue to following up with us after our function. Definitely somewhere I would recommend to friends and family.

We held our wedding reception at Sergeants Mess on 10 June 2018. Everything was absolutely perfect. From the minute we arrived at the venue we had drinks and canapes being offered as well as anything else we needed. The service is fantastic, there was always someone to help if we needed something. The food presentation, quality and taste was outstanding. Also our event planner Tig was wonderful. She helped us throughout the entire process and made it so easy. We also had some last minute changes and she made sure it was no problem and that everything was perfect. I would highly recommend Sergeants Mess to everyone for their wedding reception. Thank you to all the staff at Sergeants Mess for making our wedding the best day of our lives!
