Wedding Reception Restaurants/Venues (61 Venues)

Restaurant wedding receptions grow increasingly popular, offering convenience, amazing food, and some of the most beautiful private dining/event spaces to be found in the UK.

The wedding reception, sometimes referred to as a wedding breakfast, usually takes place after the ceremony. It is a time for guests to greet the new married couple, enjoy drinks, food, and celebrate. Hiring a restaurant for a wedding reception therefore, can be the perfect choice of place.

Whether you need a small or large reception venue, in the wedding restaurants collection below, you’ll find venues with capacity for all party sizes from under 15 guests to over 300.

Why choose a Restaurant for your wedding reception venue?

Choosing a wedding dinner venue is no easy task, especially while planning all the other parts of your wedding day.

That’s why choosing a restaurant wedding reception is a great idea to save time, the hassle of finding an external caterer to come to a venue, and reduces the possibility of any parts of your wedding dinner/breakfast going wrong.

The PDD aims to make the task of finding a great restaurant wedding reception venue even easier by giving you the ability to quickly compare wedding reception venues, capacities and facilities, and find the best one for you.

Some wedding restaurants offer small private rooms within their establishments, perfect for small wedding receptions. Some wedding restaurants will be able to offer exclusive use of their venue, with a variety of indoor and outdoor restaurant dining spaces. This means you could have an outside canapé and drinks reception, before moving inside to enjoy speeches and a seated dinner.

How to find your perfect wedding reception restaurant with Private Dining?

All the restaurant wedding reception venues below have experience in hosting wedding receptions, breakfasts, dinners, some are even registered to hold wedding ceremonies.

To find the best restaurants for your wedding reception you firstly need to think about the number of guests and location.

Traditionally the wedding reception would follow the ceremony, this is why it is regarded as a wedding breakfast, the first meal after marriage.

However, nowadays it is not uncommon for people to complete marriage certification part prior to the wedding reception or main celebration day. This means you don’t necessarily need to choose a wedding reception restaurant near to the ceremony venue.

If you are planning on holding a ceremony on the same day prior to your reception, then it is best to choose a wedding reception venue that is not too far away. A short driving distance at most is recommended.

There are some restaurant wedding venues that are licenced and approved for civil marriages and partnerships, so you may decide not to move venue at all!

Once you’ve chosen location, use the search box on this page to refine wedding reception restaurants suitable for your guest numbers. You should then have a collection of reception venues which are best suited to you.

You can contact each one individually, or add your favourite wedding restaurants and venues to your shortlist/enquiry basket so you can make a time saving multi-venue enquiry!
