Handily located between Reading and Guildford, the gorgeous greens of the Blackwater Valley have played host to a variety of wedding receptions over the years.

Acknowledging that no two weddings will ever be the same, the proprietors of the wittily-named Bistro 19 deal with each of their prospective brides and grooms on an entirely individual basis.


Idyllically set within 90-acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, featuring abundant wildlife and offering fantastic views over the nearby lake, the Bistro has played host to innumerable wedding receptions and family parties since its inception in the 1990s.

An experienced team can provide links with other services such as florists and decorators to really make your wedding special. This emphasises the family-friendly atmosphere Bistro 19 have sought to establish throughout many years of dedicated service.

Staging events against the backdrop of an attractive outdoor gazebo, perfect for rustic themed nuptials, this venue has sufficient seating to accommodate 72 guests for a formal wedding breakfast and later on converting to a maximum informal reception of 150 guests.

The dedicated staff will present a comprehensive quote following a detailed consultation with yourself, which will incorporate all of the aspects of your special day.


Once you have finished in the outside gazebo, the Bistro itself contains a dance area capable of fitting up to eighty partying guests, with an experienced external DJ on hand to keep the dancefloor full. This additional service can last up to midnight.

Proceeding through the dance and entertainment area will lead you to the fully-staffed bar, seating up to fifty guests, which will readily provide any alcoholic and other beverages you require for the day. There is full disabled access throughout the venue.


Bistro 19 offers a selection of light finger buffets, barbecue options, two and three course roast dinners, afternoon tea and a three course bespoke meal. For a more formal menu, external caterers can readily be invited.
