Venue Testimonials

Had our engagement party here, an absolutely fantastic night. The venue is amazing, the staff were great and on top of everything. Food was delicious and a great selection of wines and beers. The Photo Booth is great addition to the venue, and being able to play your own music playlist (eg from Spotify) is very valuable. Will be recommending the blacksmith bar to friends and family who want to host an event/function.

We held our wedding ceremony and reception in the upstairs function space at The Blacksmith and had the best night! Food and cocktails were great, the staff were lovely and helpful, and the room is so beautiful. Having the in-built photo booth is a major bonus, as was being able to provide our own Spotify playlists for different parts of our event. The team at The Blacksmith were a delight to work with in the lead-up and we would highly recommend them if you're looking for a beautiful and intimate wedding venue.
