let me start off by saying Pat was excellent he accommodated everything that I needed and even though my wedding was supposed to be 50-75 no other venues wanted to be bothered but Pat said No Problem!! I ended with 100 people anyway lol. The food was amazing my guests cannot... Read More stop talking about the food, the the staff was amazing starting with the owner Pat. His assistants Erin, Mary Anne, Hassan and the captain, the wait staff was excellent. everything went perfect including the vendors that work with them SomEntertainment and Torrin photography. .. I would recommend this to Every bride and groom. The price is affordable worth every dollar. I did not stress one time . I feels like they are family not just a venue. :)

We had an amazing experience at Bridgewater Manor. I would have given it 5 stars except the chicken dish we ordered was made wrong and it came out a little bit dry. (They are giving me and my husband a free dinner to make up for it which is very kind) But other than that..... Read More FANTASTIC. The owner Pat is very accommodating and understanding- everytime I was a question or concern he was more than happy to help. The venue itself is beautiful inside and out and all the staff members were very pleasant. My guests thought that the food during cocktail hour was exceptional. Overall great atmosphere. I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone looking to book. It is affordable and you get more than you pay for. Thank you Bridgewater manor!!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Bridgewater Manor on Sept 16, 2017. We were so happy with everyone we encountered there during the planning process and on our wedding day itself. We weren't sure if we would be able to have the ceremony outside due to rain... Read More earlier in the day, but MaryAnn and the Maitre 'D did everything in their power to make sure things were dried off and that there was an alternate room set up inside, and luckily the weather held out and we were able to have the outside ceremony. The ceremony area was beautiful and perfect for the number of guests we had which was 90. We had the Hunterdon room and were able to use the suite before and after the ceremony and they even set up cocktail hour food in there for my husband and I until we were ready to join everyone. The food was fantastic and many people raved about how they've never seen so much food in a cocktail hour before. The service was excellent during the whole day and we were very happy with everyone. I would definitely recommend Bridgewater Manor to anyone. You'll be very happy. We had a Saturday evening wedding and there are a few different rooms to choose from depending upon the size which was important as we were not having a large wedding. The price was more reasonable than many other venues we looked at. Excellent venue!

I can't even begin to explain how amazing the Bridgewater manor was for our wedding day. From the beginning Pat was fantastic with explaining all of our options, showing us the grounds, and answering all of our questions. Once we booked this GORGEOUS venue, we then had constant... Read More communication with Erin, who never once left us in the dark. She kept a good timeline and gave guidance that was easy to follow taking the stress off of us. The tasting was PHENOMENAL and so fun as they allowed us to bring both our parents with us for an amazing night of food. When the big day arrived, the venue was set up EXACTLY as I pictured down to the last rose petal. The materdee was literally the most wonderful woman who made sure my husband and I had EVERYTHING at all times, seriously she really pushed our experience over the top with her attention to detail and service, we truly wanted for nothing she made every wish come true for us. We are over the moon about how our day went, and we are still getting calls/texts about how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food was! This venue was a dream come true and we HIGHLY recommend, hands down, the BEST!

We scheduled a venue tour for yesterday, 9/10/17, at 10:00 AM. We had my mother and step-father come out and everything. We arrived on time and stood around for a while before deciding to give ourselves the tour. We did encounter the mother of a bride who was incredibly happy... Read More with the service they had been provided, however, we weren't wowed at all with overall decor of the venue. After our self-tour was completed, we continued to wait, and wait, and wait. I walked over to the office and made myself visible but still no one bothered to greet us and ask if we were being helped. We had several staff members walk past and say hello but, still were not helped. After a half an hour of waiting, I called the office and said we needed to leave because we had waited for so long. They made such a huge deal about all of their accolades but couldn't even FOUR random people standing in the lobby for over a half an hour. It was really frustrating but made it very easy to cross them off our list of possible venues.
