Quirky art venue, organisation superb, fun, food
Venue Service

By Ste Sutheran & Angela Barrett, on 05 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Oct 2017

My husband and I got married in The Biscuit Factory on the 28th October 2017, we have nothing but huge praise and thanks for our wedding that was perfect in every way. Katie, our Wedding Events Organiser was fantastic, we worked closely with her on the lead up to the wedding and she left no stone unturned. Our day was outstanding, the organisation exceptional plus the wedding breakfast in The Biscuit Room was amazing. Katie and her team managed the day from start to finish. We highly recommend this venue as our special day will always keep a magical place in our hearts. The feedback we have had from our wedding guests has blown us away. ‘Quirky art venue, organisation superb, fun, food delightful, the best wedding we have attended’. Many of our guests will be returning to The Biscuit Factory in the future.

Simply put, this place is the best!

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at The Biscuit Factory and could not have wished for a better venue. Everything from the striking gallery setting to the stunning Biscuit Room was perfect. Our Event Co-Ordinator Katie was excellent - she could not have been more helpful throughout the whole planning process and her attention to detail was second to none. The fact that many of our guests commented as to how professional she was is a testament to how hard she worked on the day! We were given access to decorate the room the day prior to the wedding and Katie liaised with our wedding suppliers to ensure all was in hand. The food and drinks were of such a high standard and I think we’ve lost count at how many people have told us it’s the best wedding food they’ve ever had! All in all the day ran so smoothly and that is down to the hard work of Katie, Phil and the Biscuit Factory team. We could not have been more delighted with our choice of venue and can’t thank everyone at The Biscuit Factory enough for everything. Would certainly recommend this stunning venue to all prospective bride and grooms!

Fantastic venue, great team, perfect party!

By Harriet and Michael, on 02 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2017

We hosted our wedding evening party in the Biscuit Room at the Biscuit Factory after getting married abroad, and every aspect of the evening was perfect! Katie was our events coordinator and was outstanding - she was always quick to respond to any queries leading up to the event and was proactive in suggesting arrangements. She was genuinely enthusiastic and made a real effort to get to know us in order to tailor the event to be exactly as we envisaged it. The room itself was great - we were given flexible access in advance to decorate as we wished and it looked amazing. On the night, the staff were extremely accommodating and helpful. We lost count of how many people told us it was the best buffet food they had ever had! There was a great range of cocktails available and the changing lights behind the bar are another great feature. As people who weren't even sure whether to have a party at all, our party here was everything we could have wanted. Thank you Katie and the team at the Biscuit Factory! We would certainly recommend the venue to anyone looking to host a wedding event.

Simply Wonderful from start to finish
Venue Service

By Anna & Andy, on 30 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Jun 2017

We had our wedding reception at the Biscuit Factory in the Biscuit room it it was brilliant! The team (Jon was our coordinator) were fantastic giving us lots of helpful tips and advice in the planning, things we hadn't even thought of! They made sure the night ran smoothly so we could just enjoy it all. They even dealt with a wedding crasher! The venue itself was stylish and modern, that you could decorate any way you liked and the lighting can be changed to match any colour scheme you could possibly think of. Their clear chairs don't require covers as they are stylish. You get the sense of the art gallery throughout the whole venue. The food was amazing and all of our guests raved about it, especially the chicken skewers and slider burgers. Drinks were reasonably priced for a wedding venue. If this venue is on your maybe list, or even if it's not, i would go along for a visit, they often have open days if you contact them. nothing else compared when we were looking for a reception venue!

Perfect Venue and Team - Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

By Amy and Chris Taylor, on 12 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 28 May 2017

We were engaged in 2015 and had some ideas about where to host our wedding reception and when we saw the biscuit factory and what they had to offer, we fell in love. From the first viewing to the final day our wedding coordinator Katie was so helpful, supported us throughout the process, and gave us ideas. We booked the biscuit factory gallery for our drinks reception followed by the biscuit room for our wedding breakfast and evening do. The team were so flexible and gave us a blank canvas to work on, they helped bring our ideas to life. The food on the day from the Canapes to the personal feast was incredible too and we would highly recommend this option. We were unsure as to what dessert to have on the day too, and Katie suggested that the chef could create the course from scratch, which was delicious. Overall our wedding day was perfect, beautiful venue, fabulous food and amazing team to help put it all together.

Wish we could do it all over again...

By Matt and Erin, on 15 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2016

We got married and had our reception in the biscuit room in October 2016, Katie was our planner and saw to everything we wanted/needed. I definitely wouldn't say we had a traditional wedding, walked out of the ceremony to the muppets and had afternoon tea instead of a normal wedding breakfast but nothing we requested seemed out of the ordinary to them, which made things feel a lot easier. I'd 100% recommend the venue,the food, the drinks and all of the people involved.

It has to be a 5 out of 5 across the board
Venue Service

By Cassandra & Brian Brady, on 18 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Oct 2016

It has to be a 5/5 as Katie, Phil and the team made our day fantastic. Artisan is one of my favourite restaurants and when my husband proposed I knew where I wanted our wedding. From the onset it was apparent we could have what we wanted, even the ice cream bar from the café for evening guests (we changed our mind on this idea we didn’t want guests cleaning bills!). We got married in the gallery and the rest of the wedding in the Biscuit Room which I would recommend. Katie and Phil took all the stress and I simply said what we wanted. Nobody could believe how calm I was which is how it should be. The food was absolutely amazing, we decided on a banquet and although we were all stuffed couldn’t help but have another mouthful. The food on the evening was just as delicious probably the quietest time of the evening. The waiters & waitresses were all talking to the guests and having a laugh which made it a nice and relaxed atmosphere. To this day we still have guests talking about our wedding and how wonderful it was, one of best they had been to. Katie, Phil, Chef and the rest of the team working that day thank you so much for making it perfect.

By Kerry & Stephen Boyd, on 08 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2016

Venue is amazing, if you want something a little bit different we cannot recommend The Biscuit Factory enough. All the staff are so helpful and a big thank you to Katie for helping us have the laid back wedding we were looking for and going the extra mile when we decided to have a photographer! Guests have commented on how fab the venue is and how much they enjoyed the food. The Biscuit Factory ticked all the boxes for our fantastic Wedding day.

Amazing Venue, Amazing Team and Amazing Wedding
Venue Service

By Danielle and Andy Lisle, on 24 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 28 Aug 2016

We booked the Biscuit Factory around 2 years before our wedding and throughout the whole process the team were simply incredible. We started looking at venues and whilst we wanted some traditional elements to our day we wanted something a little bit different with our venue. When we visited the Biscuit Factory and Biscuit Room we were blown away and it was quite clear they had put a lot of effort into making the Biscuit Room the perfect venue. We were also quite keen on the fact that we could design the day exactly how we wanted, there was no exact package 'deal' or details we had to stand by so the day could really reflect our style and tastes. Our Wedding Coordinator Tom was incredible from start to finish and I threw some pretty wild ideas his way but he always responded and came up with ideas to help support our vision. Designing our food menu and having our tasting was probably one of the best bits (the food is amazing) and we had so many compliments from our guests about the food! We went for a sharing feast and had an American bbq theme which suited us down to the ground along with buckets of beers and cocktails which certainly went down well! The day itself went perfect from start to finish and the team could honestly not do enough for us! We had the most perfect day and it was better than I ever could have imagined. I would recommend the Biscuit Factory and Biscuit Room over and over again to anyone who is looking to create their own special day! We can't thank the team enough for the work they did to make our day perfect!

From the moment we walked into the Biscuit Room we knew it was the venue for us. Modern and elegant facilities combined with delicious food and a great team led by our wedding coordinator Katie made our day extra special. Nothing was too much trouble and they helped tailor our day to the exact requirements we wanted. Our guests were also hugely impressed by the facility and the food served. We would not hesitate to recommend it. Go and visit, it will sell itself.

Personal and Unique
Venue Service

By Edel and Stefan Spencer, on 26 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 29 May 2016

From the minute we made an enquiry until the day it's self and to be honest following. We could not thank all the staff at the biscuit factory enough. The venue is so beautiful and allows any bride and groom to place their own style on the whole day from decor to food and more. We married in May and as previously mentioned from the moment we made the equire we found everyone to be knowledgeable, helpful and efficient. We found all of the staff could not do enough to ensure our day was as we planned and to be honest they surpassed our expectations. A special mention and huge thank you to both Katie, Terri and Phil who were there throughout the day to ensure everything was as planned. Making arrangements could not of been easier and the team were more than happy to discuss any questions or queries with us either in person or by telephone or email. The biscuit factory is a great venue for any couple who want their wedding to be about them as a couple. The venue allows you to place your own stamp on it. We wanted a menu which reflected us and the foods we enjoyed. The team asked for our ideas and the chef produced the best wedding food we have tasted. Our guest still comment on how beautiful and diffrent our chicken malaise with mac and cheese along with jam roly poly was along with our mexican buffet for our evening meal. This venue is a must for anyone couple who are looking for a venue that is unique and personal as no two weddings will be the same. We loved this venue and it become very close to our hearts.

The perfect day at the perfect venue
Venue Service

By Sinead & Andrew, on 12 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 29 Mar 2016

We had the fantastic pleasure of having our wedding here in March. It was a superb day thanks to Matt and the events team at the Biscuit Factory. We couldn't have picked a better venue. The gallery was the perfect ceremony location and the Biscuit room a really clean, modern space for our reception. We found the package we received was reasonably priced and the event team helped and guided us every step of the way. They seem to have a lot of experience and this showed as the day went off without a hitch. The location is great, nice and central, and the food was fabulous! The food and beverages team delivered exactly what we asked for at a really, really high standard, who knew pie and mash could look so good! The perfect day at the perfect venue.
