We used Brent and Kirsty and their team from Otematata's Best Dam Pub for our wedding in Naesby, 2021 and would highly recommend them. They were so easy to work, had lots of great ideas and made it all hassle free - just what you with a wedding! We had a grazing table, a buffet with a carvery and an awesome dessert table - the whole lot was fantastic and we still get comments now about how good the food was. We would have no hesitation in recommending Brent and Kirsty and their team again and would use them again for another function.
