Catering was good, made better by the location, first time Ive had a bbq for the wedding reception. There was draught beer and a reasonable selection of wines. Plenty of room for dancing and if you work on low tide, ideal backdrop for wedding pictures

Attended a well organised Wedding and reception. The venue is lovely and quite unique and should weather not be suitable for outside venue they have back up plan at the ready. Reception was well catered and service was good

We went in the height of summer, it wasnt busy, it just wasn't anything special. Seems like one half of the place is closed most of the summer for weddings, fair enough. The side we went to, the ladies side was nice, had some rocks...More

Why not try the Dilkhusa Grand hotel, 2 minutes walk from the Tunnels Beaches. There was a wedding taking place on the Gentleman's Beach (left hand beach) while we were there last week. We caught a glimpse of the guests... More
