We recently had our wedding at this venue. I would highly recommend it. Pricing was so reasonable and we had priced plenty of other venues but this venue was by far best pricing. In no way did pricing affect food quality or the service. The staff and everyone involved in setting up and organising the day went above and beyond what we had ever expected. Nothing was ever to much for them and wow what a wonderful job they done with decorating. Staff were so pleasant and helpful. I would recommend anyone having a function or wedding to consider here as you won’t be disappointed. If I was asked to rate venue food and staff out of 5 I would give all top marks.
We highly recommend No 5 it's a gorgeous location for outdoors and indoor use and something a little different for Hawkes Bay options. We found it to be a smooth process from start to end, Luci is so chill and such a sweetheart to deal with. The team on our day were super lovely and accommodating to our every need we felt pretty special with the overall service provided. We've had only positive feedback from our guests, loved the venue setup, staff service, golf range and buffet food options - simple but well executed. Top notch team, we loved everything about our wedding day. Thanks team No 5, you guys rock!
We had our wedding and reception at No5 Cafe & Larder in April. It was amazing. Including excellent staff who helped us plan exactly what we wanted. You all really helped make the day perfect. Thank you very much. The ceremony setting was exquisite, in nature with beautiful surroundings. Our wedding photos taken at No5 Cafe & Larder are stunning. The reception area was set up lovely with all the tables delicately matching each other, with our colour theme and decor. There was such a huge variety of menu options. The food was deliciously tasty, scrumptious and plentiful. FIVE STARS from us and we would highly recommend No5 Cafe & Larder for everyone for all occasions.
