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.

In addition to being a stunning venue, the food was amazing and the wedding coordinators were very helpful and accommodating, especially during COVID when wedding restrictions kept changing.

Amazing venue views and food with, great coordinator on the day. Improvements should be made on coordinating wedding details with bride and groom prior to the wedding day to ensure there is consistent and clear directions prior to the big day.

They were fantastic! Everything went to plan, the events manager was amazing. The lead up to the wedding was great, going through run sheets and making sure everything was in order. Their service was really impressive.

We fell in love with the venue at first sight. When it came to our big day, the food and amazing service did not disappoint; our guests definitely agreed with us on this. Thank you to our coordinator Carmen, who made sure everything ran smoothly behind-the-scenes, as well as getting back to us promptly with all our questions, and to Nic the venue manager that looked after everything on the night. It was such an incredible night for us!

Great venue, amazing staff (have never been treated so well in my life), the only thing we were not 100% on was the wine offers in the standard drinks package, however they worked with us to come up with a comprise that kept us both happy. Our guests were definitely wowed with the whole package (venue/drinks/food) and complemented the venue excessively.

Simply amazing and nothing to fault. Venue is gorgeous and nothinng went wrong. Special thanks to our coordinator Tig who was bubbly and guided us with professional advise and Teresa who always remembered us. Guests had the best time thanks to the attentiveness of staff and venue manager Nick.

Sergeants Mess was the perfect venue for our wedding! The view and nearby scenery is beautiful, the hall is gorgeous and the service was incredible! Our coordinator, Carmen, always responded to my emails quickly and completely and was an absolute lifesaver. Loves it!

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!

The most breathtaking, elegant and unique water view venue in Sydney! We wanted a venue by the ocean in a classy suburb, where there is only 1 wedding at a time, and Sergeants Mess was beyond perfect for our intimate but luxe Indian wedding. Our events coordinator and the venue staff were all beyond fantastic, reliable and sincere. Highly recommend this underrated exclusive venue for high budget Indian weddings!

Sergeants mess was amazing! So accommodating and helpful. The even managers were incredible and even changed the time slot we could be at the venue to make sure we had time to get there from the ceremony in time. The food and views were a huge hit and one of the best parts of the day! Definitely choose Sergeants Mess!!

Sergeants Mess were the ultimate professionals from first contact. They were very responsive to all our questions which was a huge help when dealing with all the stress of organising a wedding. Our guests also spoke very highly of the food and service on the night.

All the staff we dealt with at Sergeants Mess were so professional and really accommodating to everything we wanted to do. About 2 months before our wedding, the wedding coordinator we had been assigned had decided to resign and return to university. You would think that would be a problem, however it was not. The transition over to a new wedding coordinator was completely smooth and Ashleigh was brought up to speed very quickly on all the plans we had in mind for our wedding day. Another fun part of the wedding at Sergeants Mess was the menu tasting. We were also able to bring along my Mum and Dad which allowed us to try almost all of the dishes. This event in itself was really helpful to learn about all the options and the ways in which you can customise your event to suit your guests. A lot of other venues don’t provide you the option to taste the food before you choose it. This was a key highlight for us, as we were quite surprised with the menu items we ended up selecting. Our wedding at Sergeants Mess was completely stress free on the day. All the staff are so well trained that our wedding truly went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend our reception venue to anyone and everyone! (customisations we selected to our package were: three choices of cocktails on arrival; an upgraded beverage package; and the option for guests to select their main course out of three choices)

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.

Weren't able to use the outside area due to the weather, but venue is beautiful regardless. Loved the privacy of it. Staff were accommodating and kept things moving along when needed. Andrea was great to deal with in the lead up to the big day. Only gripe would be the short bump in time.

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.

I loved the venue and which is why we chose it was the service that they give is always 100%. It felt like we created a friendship with them as they made you feel comfortable and it was all very personal. They always answered questions that I had. Mark, Simon, Franci, and Si were all great to deal with, and I rave about them all the time. They made my day run so smoothly.

This venue is absolutely stunning and the service and food make it outstanding! As soon as we laid eyes on Sergeant's Mess we knew no where else could compare. Our assigned wedding coordinator was fabulous. Everything ran so smoothly and it was all a such an easy process. Nothing was an issue and they were so accommodating to every request we had. The night was so beautiful and exceeded our expectations. We had countless feedback from our guests saying how much they loved the location, service and food. We couldn't have asked for a better reception venue. Would highly recommend this venue!!

Sophie is a star! She's amazing. She's organised, generous with her time and committed to making sure everything goes 100% smoothly. The staff are first rate, providing some of the best service I've ever seen - striking a difficult balance between making the couple feel like royalty but also that they're surrounded by friends rather than staff - they did that perfectly - everyone was so nice and helpful! They had a shuttle from the complimentary car park and even escorted us to the water taxi that took us home! The location is unbeatable with water views in a national park and a fit for purpose outdoor amphitheatre! The venue lush and gorgeous in both the décor and the natural setting. The chairs are so comfy, and the chandeliers add charm, you really don't need to do much décor - it's all there!

I saw a few venues with water views but looked no further once I saw Sergeants Mess in Chowder Bay, Mosman. I had dreamt of this place since I was 4. They paid attention to fine details and were happy to accommodate special requests. The food was amazing. The view was amazing and as it was Australia Day, we saw harbour fireworks from the reception balcony. Cant wait to be invited to someone elses wedding at this venue. Highly recommend.
