My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Water’s Edge, and it was absolutely perfect. Donna went out of her way to make sure that everything was where we wanted and that the day ran like clockwork. As it is situated by the castle and on the river front, it would be fair to expect a fairly high price for a wedding event at the Water’s Edge, however we were astonished at how cheap it was and how all the staff treated us as though it was a wedding of one of their family members. Couldn’t rate this place highly enough.

My son and his new bride had their wedding reception here last week and it was perfect. The setting is ideal with river outside and castle next door. A very big thank you to Donna and all the staff who helped make the day special. The food was excellent and everyone enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended. 5*
