Megan and her team went above and beyond for my myself and my husbands wedding. It couldn’t have run any smoother if we tried. The venue was amazing and it did not disappoint with guest. Megan was an absolute breeze to work with and made us feel so welcomed and listened to us throughout everything and took in what we wanted and absolutely nailed it !! From booking the venue, to having the tasting and choosing everything it was easier than I would ever have thought. The most amazing wedding and would do the day 1000x over again. Thank you everyone at the garden bar and kitchen.


Our experience with the garden bar and kitchen was truly amazing. We booked everything through email. We didn’t view the venue in person until 1 month prior to the wedding where we did an incredible tasting of our menu. Communication the whole time was professional and on point. Megan was truly amazing, so happy and welcoming. She went Above and beyond, to make sure everything was perfect. Even making sure my elderly grandparents got takeaway cake to go home with. The food was incredible, the drinks were endless and we had the most incredible party, the dance floor didn’t stop all night. We hit the jackpot with Megan and her beautiful team at the garden bar and kitchen.


We had a magical wedding, and such a blast at the Garden Bar and Kitchen. Everyone raved about the atmosphere, surroundings, food and cocktails. We loved every part. From the minute we chose the venue the staff and Megan and Tom made our planning feel effortless. They were so accommodating for our day and they pulled off a great party for us.

They did a phenomenal job with the set up, and the chef and bar staff served up the most delicious meals & drinks that all our guests kept raving about all night & in the time since.
