Get married at Mud Dock

We have a Wedding Ceremony Licence, so as well as holding your wedding reception or party at Mud Dock, you can do all the official knot-tying business here too! For more details, call our events team on 0117 934 9734 or email events@mud-dock.co.uk

Perfect your party

You want the tables a certain way? Time to prep the room with your own decorations? Drinks on the terrace? Space for dancing? It’s all good – just bounce your ideas off us.

Food-wise, we offer a buffet menu and two-levels of à la carte menu. (The buffet option is particularly popular, and involves your choice of a range of dishes brought to the table for people to serve themselves – perfect for a less formal approach).

Our prices depend on things such as the day of the week you’re thinking of, the time of day you would like, and which menu you choose. Come what may, we’ll go to every length possible to ensure you and your guests have a great time, as the thank-you messages below help to show…

“We had our wedding reception at Mud Dock and it was absolutely perfect!”

Firstly the decor in there is so cool, you don’t even need to add much! We had a beautiful sunny day and the terrace outside was perfect. It’s such a perfect Bristol location with the waterside and the colourful houses in the distance.

Everyone commented on how great the food was too! We had about 90 people and it never felt too crowded, they set the tables up in the perfect way… Anyone looking for a venue should go here!”

“Just a very quick note to say thank you so so much. …”

Tim and I are completely blown away with how perfect the whole night was.

The venue looked incredible, the food got so many compliments and you and your staff were just totally on everything, so to us it felt seemless and easy.

Mud Dock and the team will be a special place for us forever more!

“Our Christmas lunch, held at Mud Dock, was a great success…

We had 54 people (who had travelled from around the country to attend). The universally positive feedback mentioned the creativity and quality of the food, the attentiveness of the staff and the general atmosphere of the café space.

Please accept our thanks for helping make the event such a success.”

“Thank you to you and all the staff on Saturday night. They were all amazing and made the evening absolutely perfect.

The space looked amazing, the tables special, the food was absolutely delicious and the service and attention to detail second to none.

So many of the guests praised the location and the food and as most of them are local I think you will see many of them again!!”

Helen Sergeant

Feedback from this end has been fantastic. Have a brilliant Christmas and new year!”
