I am writing this review to warn all brides about this place. My fiance and I had booked our venue with Brock House and gave them a prepaid cheque for the ENTIRE venue, costing thousands of dollars. Unfortunately, 2 weeks before our wedding, we had unfortunate events come up in ... View more our personal lives and had to postpone our wedding. We were hoping to be able to rebook our date with Brock House or at least get a refund for the cheque we gave for a venue we weren't having anymore on the original date (never expected the deposit back, just the venue amount). However, not only did Brock House refuse to refund us the money, as per their policy, we were not even allowed to transfer the money to a different date! According to them, if we rebooked, we would have to pay the ENTIRE wedding again! Absolutely unheard of. I was extremely disappointed in their lack of compassion and insane amount of greed. Brides, DO NOT BOOK HERE EVER. Unforeseen circumstances happen in life and I never wish them upon you, but you do not want to have to be dealing with them ON TOP of losing your entire wedding budget to a greedy restaurant who doesn't care about other people and whose only purpose is to make money. Please save yourself the painful hassle that I am going through. Warn everyone you know!

The Brock House staff were outstanding from initial meeting all the way through to final clean up. As two middle-aged women marrying for the first time we were a bit apprehensive. Brock House was incredibly responsive working well with our amazing Planner, Christie from Umbrella ... View more Umbrella Events, to our unbelievably talented Celebrant, Maggie Leithead of Love Storyteller and our breathtaking flower arrangements by Flower Box on Commercial Drive. Borckhouse accommodated our every whim including a live event painter, Louise Nicholson and contact jugglers to entertain our guests while waiting in the buffer line. WE had firespinners on Jericho Beach after the ceremony too. I can honestly say that everyone we have spoken to has said it was the best wedding they have attended. The food was sublime, the service impeccable and the venue otherworldly. I couldn't have been happier it was truly something out of an Indie movie - elegant and yet totally relaxed.

A heartfelt thank you to all of the Brock House catering team. From the multiple planning conversations with Kaitlyn and Hikari, through to the efficient and professional service and kitchen staff on our wedding day, we felt very well taken care of at this charming venue. Our ... View more guests had a lovely time, were delighted with the space (and gorgeous view!) available to us, and everyone complimented the food - everyone loved how fresh the food both looked and tasted. We couldn’t have been happier with our wedding at Brock House and highly recommend this venue for your wedding.
I would highly recommend Brock House to any couple if the venue meets your needs. Our wedding was on a Friday at the end of September 2016. The weather ended up being great and we were able to have our ceremony under the tree with no clouds in the sky. However, because it was ... View more late September, it was cool in the evening and although the tent is heated, the walls are open and it was quite cool for a number of our guests. For our guests, the view and the food stole the show - many people said the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding. As a bride, I appreciated how helpful and informative the team at Brock House are - they are relatively flexible and offer lots of suggestions. To note: during the summer, the space has two weddings a day (11am or 6pm). Our wedding was in the evening and we had a seated menu, which meant the dinner portion wasn't over until almost 11pm. Events at Brock House must end at 1am, so there isn't much time for dancing and drinking (if that is important for you). Another consideration for Brock House is price - there is a minimum spend throughout the year, with Saturdays in July and August being highest. However, if your wedding is over 75 people and you have an open bar, you will easily hit the minimum. Similar to other "restaurant" venues, alcohol (including taxes and standard gratuity) will cost approximately $10/drink - just something to keep in mind, but is not uncommon. Overall, we were really happy with the venue and would highly recommend it - there's a reason Brock House does hundreds of weddings every year!

Although the Catering manager is very polite and friendly, and the food is delicious for the money we spent I expected way more. After hearing complaints from multiple people that attended/threw weddings at Brock house that the service was incredibly slow we had them hire extra ... View more waiters which we paid for and the service was still very slow. As we (the head table were receiving our entrees some of the tables still had not had their appetizers. The wait staff seemed confused and were not nearly as professional as what I expect for the amount of money we spent. They can be accommodating and in some ways were great but overall i expect more when I pay a lot of money and feel they could have done a much better job. The chef is great but in the beginning we were asked due to provide recipes due to special diets which I found very odd and during the tasting all of the meals were very mixed up and the staff seemed very confused. I was very frustrated with a number of things when trying to organize wedding details and though the venue is gorgeous there is some cleaning that could be done to glass ceilings, tent and lawn upkeep. Given the chance again, I would use a different venue.
