Food & Beverages

A little explanation about all things food and drinks ...


Life is uncertain, eat dessert first

Our wedding packages include chef selection of canapes prior to your reception followed by a three course meal.   If you prefer to have a buffet meal for your wedding reception, we can certainly accommodate this.

Your wedding menu will include two options per course, served alternate serve.  This is the standard choice but we are open to suggestions.

You may wish to swap the alternate serve entree to a large sharing board per guest table - or - swap the alternate serve desserts to a dessert station.  The dessert station includes three options from our wedding menu, in petit size, served on wooden platters to a styled dessert station.

Below is a link to our current wedding menu.  The menu does change from time to time, to keep it fresh and current.  As we get closer to your wedding, the most recent menu will be sent to you.  

Date Night at Gledswood


We are open for dinner on a Friday night showcasing our latest wedding menu.  Simply book a table with your love and enjoy date night at your wedding venue. Our full wedding menu, as well as a few other specials, will be available to order.  

You'll also be able to order from our wine list so you get the full experience before settling on your wedding menu.

Bookings are from 6.30pm, with last orders at 8.15pm.  Book a table for two or maybe you'd like to share it with the bridal party?  There is a $50 per person deposit payable at the time of booking and this comes off your total bill at the end of the evening. 

Soak up the atmosphere of Gledswood at night ... just how it will be for your wedding reception!  



Gledswood Homestead & Winery, albeit not a working winery these days, has sourced premium quality beverages for our wedding beverage package to match the meals on our wedding menu. Our own label, Gledswood Estate, offers a selection of wines that are sure to appeal.

The majority of our wedding packages include a beverage component in it.  The beverage component allows for 4.5 hours of drinks service ~ beer, wine and soft drinks.  Our company policy is for all bar services to cease 30 minutes prior to the end of your reception

The beverage package commences once guests enter the reception.  We place a bottle of red and white wine per guest table (where your package includes the beverage component), along with iced water.  Beer service is from the bar.  

Canape Hour

Your wedding package includes one hour for pre-dinner canapes prior to your reception starting. The bridal party are usually having photos while their guests enjoy canapes and drinks at one of our canape hour locations.

Beverage options for this hour include having either: 

  • Bar tab - you determine a preset limit

  • Guests purchase their own


We serve beer, wine and soft drinks only during canape hour.  Spirits are not included at this point.  Spirits can be added to your reception, and we recommend delaying service of spirits until main meals are served.

Wedding Beverage package

Your wedding beverage package, served for 4.5 hours includes the following drinks:

If there is a particular beverage you would like to have on your wedding day, please have a chat to your Event Coordinator.   We do not permit bottles of spirits on guest tables during the reception, but can arrange for your spirit of choice behind the bar.  

Please keep in mind... We are a fully licensed venue therefore all alcohol must be supplied and served by Gledswood Homestead & Winery staff.  You cannot bring alcohol onto the property.
