Situated in Over, Gloucester, The Wharf House is perfect for a sophisticated wedding breakfast. Enjoying a beautiful riverside location, newlyweds can celebrate their big day by gazing out onto the River Severn and the Hereford and Gloucester Canal. The Wharf House is owned and operated as a restaurant and a B&B by the Herefordshire and Gloucestershire Canal Trust, meaning that the profit generated by the enterprise is used in promoting and maintaining the beautiful and historic waterway.

The Wharf House is an AA Red Rosette restaurant, and boasts a wealth of experience in catering for weddings. Both traditional wedding breakfasts and buffets can be served with a high level of expertise. The Wharf House is also a B&B, and features AA 4 Gold Star accommodation which, partnered with the stunning surroundings, makes an ideal place to rest up after the big day.


The Wharf House was established in 2004 in a pretty riverside location. Today, it is heralded as one of the best restaurants in the historic town of Gloucester. It overlooks the Hereford and Gloucester Canal and is owned and funded by the Canal Trust, so all the enterprise's profits are ploughed back into the Canal.

Launched back in 1992, the Herefordshire and Gloucestershire Canal Trust works towards refurbishing some of the forgotten, neglected stretches of the Canal and River Severn. Nowadays it is a registered charity, just one of the fantastic organisations that work towards preserving the irreplaceable British Heritage.


The restaurant is available for partly or fully exclusive bookings. It can cater for up to 52 guests for a formally seated meal or 85 for a buffet-style arrangement. With its beautiful large windows letting in an impressive amount of natural light, and showcasing some of the greatest canal views, The Wharf House makes for a spectacular wedding reception venue. When booked for fully exclusive use, celebrations can be carried on into the evening.

Wedding Breakfast Capacity - 52 Guests
