Pear Ridge Gardens offer truly beautiful flexible spaces for any celebration. Intimate family gatherings, extravagant weddings with all the trimmings, surprise birthday parties, cultural ceremonies, gay marriage events or corporate get togethers you can easily customise Pear Ridge Gardens to enhance your special day.

Perched atop parklike gardens the function building offers a comfortable inside/outside flow onto a sheltered deck. Views encompass the garden’s network of pathways and scattered sitting areas where guests pause to chat and socialise. Dinner can be served in a garden marquee on the lawn for 250 guests or within the restaurant area which easily seats 100 guests. Alfresco is always an option if the weather permits.

Pear Ridge won the prestigious National Savour Award when trading as a restaurant. That standard remains for our function centre.

Pear Ridge Gardens

Pear Ridge is where we had both our garden ceremony and reception. Our Autumn wedding was wonderful and the garden setting  was the perfect backdrop. The whole process was made very simple by the staff at Pear Ridge, especially their Wedding Planner who assisted us in the organisation; she took on board our visions for the day and also offered suggestions to make it even better. During our special day, the service was excellent and the food was beautiful. The lovely location and the staff at Pear Ridge truly made it the best day of our lives. We are very thankful and highly recommended Pear Ridge to all our friends and family.
