Our combined vast & varied industry experience in Canberra has fueled our passion for innovation in food concepts and a non-negotiable stance on consistency in the delivery of produce.


We had such a wonderful time and it was the perfect venue for us! The staff on the night were fantastic and it all went off without a hitch. We’ve had a few reports back from guests that it was one of the best venues they’ve attended for a wedding.


Wedding Ceremony & Reception


So many of our guests complimented the service provided by your staff on the night – that they were always on hand to top up a drink or respond to a request. Many said the food was excellent, the lighting and space was fantastic, and that they truly had a wonderful time (which really pleases us as well). Ian and I felt exactly the same – anything we needed or wanted was looked after, the food and wine were delicious, and we really had the best time.


Wedding Reception


We were so proud of the event, and everybody who attended had a pretty bloody good time – The food and service both copped the most praise from our family and friends. People loved the pork buns and the risotto – these were the most regularly occurring favorites. The setup was great, particularly given the very little assistance we provided. So thank you to you and your team for making it happen! Security and other staff were all very helpful and professional also. Finally, thanks for being so responsive on the day! And for doing us such an incredibly generous cost for the event. We will be forever grateful.
