“I cannot begin to tell you how thankful and happy we were having our wedding reception at Encore. We couldn’t have chosen a better place. All the staff on the day were absolutely remarkable and I couldn’t recommend you guys enough. There was not one person that wasn’t impressed with the venue, food, service, etc. Thank you so much sincerely for such great service from start to finish. Considering we only had 3 weeks to quickly prepare due to covid, we could not fault your services at all from the very beginning up until we walked out of the car park.” Lisa & Mark and Leanne & Anthony, 12th December 2020
“Thank you so much to you and the team at Encore Events for making our brunch event so fabulous. We were in awe from the moment we stepped into the room – it was even better than we had remembered it! The staff were so welcoming and helpful and the food was absolutely superb – a great selection and great portion sizes. It was a magical morning and perfect way to recover after the wedding and to host our guests who were all very impressed. It was a pleasure working with you – thank you for being so accommodating and helpful throughout the past year as we often had to shuffle things around due to Covid. We will certainly be back to host another event with you in the future! Many thanks once again to you and the team, Warm regards” Dina & Andrew, 23rd January 2021
“We have no words! Encore exceeded our expectations and the staff were sensational! We could not have asked for more! Our guests loved the venue, the food, the ambiance! We have had so many compliments on the staff and how well everyone was treated. Our parents are overwhelmed with how amazing the night went, we have no bad words.”

“We had the absolute best time at our wedding and Michael and the staff were unbelievably amazing – we have had so many comments from guests about how fantastic the service was. And the food!! Everything ran so smoothly and we could not fault any of it – people also kept telling us that having to change our venue at the last minute must have been a sign because everything was so perfect!
And thank you so much to you for all of your help. What should have been such a stressful situation (chosing a new venue 5 weeks out!) was so seamless and we knew we were in good hands! Thank you so much for making It all so easy!!” Tiziana & Rod, 26th October 2019
“We were so pleased we decided to choose Encore as our wedding venue. It was a great feeling knowing we were in such good hands and we could focus on enjoying our big day. So many of our guests have commented on how beautiful the day was and how amazing Encore and your team were. We received lots of compliments about how wonderful the food was too. Thank you to the whole team – Nell, Antonia, Michael, Chrys and Amelia for making our wedding day as amazing as it was. Nothing was too much trouble for you guys and you handled everything so professionally, always making sure to check we were happy. You are all superstars at what you do and we can’t thank you enough for your contribution to our special day and would recommend Encore in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a wedding venue. We are still buzzing and wish we could do it all over again! All the very best to you” Con & Jimmy, 27th September 2019
“A big thank you to everyone at Encore who helped coordinate our wedding reception. From the event coordinators Amy, Nell and Antonia who were always so responsive to my queries, to the front of house staff Michael and Chrysoula, who ensured everything ran smoothly on the night. It has been such a pleasure organising our wedding with Encore and all the staff made it as stress free as possible for Denham and I. Our guests had an absolutely amazing time on the night and we have received so many comments on the beautiful venue presentation, quality of the food and first class service. We would happily recommend Encore to anyone looking for an exceptional venue to host an event!” Lucy & Denham, 21st September 2019
