Gunners’ Barracks Wedding Review

Gunners’ Barracks is such a beautiful venue. We are so glad we had our wedding there. It is intimate and the views are stunning. It just has a loverly feel. Many guests contacted us after the wedding and complimented the service. We were able to choose to have a al a carte menu, and guests were impressed with the choices of meals. As well as the endless drink top ups. The wine was wonderful and the food was so delicious. Everything is made in house and that level of care shines through. As good as any michelin star restaurant. The staff at Gunners’ were so professional and made sure everything came together and always with a smile. We didn’t have to worry about anything on the night. -Lara S
