    We really have to thank you for your relaxed laid back style in the run up to the wedding, which completely suited us. We’d been put off from other wedding reception venues in Peterborough that had set menus and fixed pricing structures. Being able to choose our own food options and making the day fit our budget and style was a big selling point to us. The actual day was lovely, all of your staff were so helpful and professional. The guy that worked the bar all night did an amazing job. The thing that ALL of our guests have commented on was the food. It was so delicious and fitted perfectly with our style of wedding. The presentation and serving was great too. A massive well done to your amazing chef/kitchen staff. Lakeside as a wedding reception venue was perfect. Easy to get to, beautiful views/sunset. A fantastic space for both the tea party and evening. So, over all everyone had a fun night. Thank you again for all of your help making our day really special.

    Dear Raj, Louise, Lauren and all the staff at Lakeside Kitchen & Bar, we wanted to write and thank you all for the brilliant way that you hosted Chloe and Davis’ wedding reception. From the start of planning the reception a year ago to the end of the wedding party, you were helpful and accommodating in every way. Louise, we’re so grateful for your advice and attention to detail in the run up to the wedding, and in overseeing preparing the venue on the day, and the cake too – despite it being your day off. The room looked beautiful.

    Throughout the evening, all of the staff were super welcoming and professional, and the food was delicious! We were extremely impressed, as were our guests, and the whole evening was one to remember. Thank you so much for all your hard work. We would thoroughly recommend Lakeside Kitchen & Bar as a great venue for such an event.
