The venue is lovely, cosy and charming! We had very good time celebrating our wedding with friends. Staff very friendly and helpful, excellent food and drinks menu!
The Guardhouse is a fantastic pub/restaurant with great food, drinks, staff, decor, and overall atmosphere. The team was excellent from start to finish, from when we first started discussing our wedding reception until after the event itself. The GM Mikael, the rest of the management team, as well as the floor team were very friendly, professional, and attentive to our needs.
Anyone thinking of holding a party or event in the Guardhouse I just wanted to say 'wow' they are fantastic. Great venue and setting (Mess Room). Service was excellent, helpful welcoming and catered for our every need. Food was fantastic, delicious and all the guests were complimenting how good it was. Finally the management- passionate, helpful and a credit to the business.
Thanks to all the staff for a great afternoon with fabulous service and great food! The happy couple had a brilliant day.
