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.

I can't think of a better venue to get married at in Vancouver, especially on a beautiful summer day! It was perfect for out of town guests with the beautiful view and gorgeous tent! The staff was super quick to respond to all of my emails and very flexible.
