Full Description
Parquetry floors and sunlit rooms make this charming pub and garden a fantastic backdrop for any wedding theme from rustic to vintage, bohemian to romantic, modern to the alternative - we've helped to create them all! Don't be fooled into thinking The Garden bar is only an outdoor venue for the summer as it's the perfect place to celebrate all year round - inside or out. Get cosy with a winter wedding sipping Mulled Wine by the open fires and dance the night away as if nobody's watching! Our huge garden boasts private heated booths to keep you warm and dry, and with space for a marquee, it really is an outstanding venue in any weather. In Spring & Summer throw open the doors, let the sunshine in and see our big and beautiful garden in all it's glory. Walk down the steps to the decked area which is perfect for seating your guests while they enjoy a glass of Pimm's and fantastic food from the largest Barbecue on the South Coast! Our experienced and dedicated Chef has designed fantastic menus for Canapés, Buffets, sit-down meals and Summer BBQ's. We are always happy to personalise our menus to suit your own taste, dietary requirements and budget. Every wedding we host is different from the last so we aim to be as flexible as we can to make your day as special as it can be.

Whole venue - Up to 250 guests

We had an absolutely fantastic evening!
We had our wedding reception at the Garden Bar on Saturday 25 May 2019. We had an absolutely fantastic evening. Every one of our guests mentioned how joyful, informal & relaxed it was and that was largely down to Annamari and her team. They were flexible and helpful around our putting up our decorations, and food choices, and just thoughtful and lovely throughout the day. The food was fantastically tasty - lamb rogan josh - and everyone complimented it. Annamari was helpful with suggestions in the meetings we had beforehand, and very well organised, and Lucia was an absolute sweetheart, and nothing was too much trouble for her. The price really was very reasonable too for the service, food and venue. We would highly recommend choosing the Garden Bar for your wedding reception!!

Will never forget the effort you put into our day.
We had our wedding here on the 30th June, and it’s hard to put into words how absolutely fantastic it was. The events manager was brilliant and helped with every aspect of the wedding, the food was delicious and the bar team did a wonderful job of keeping glasses topped up. We were very lucky with the weather, but we feel that even if it hadn’t been hot and sunny, we would still have had an wonderful day. Thank you so much to The Garden Bar, we will never forget the effort you put into our big day. Anna & Aaron x
