The Point Lawn on the waters's edge is a romantic setting offering stunning views of Monaco, overlooking out to the hills. This is the most desirable setting with breath taking water views. The Point is the perfect venue for your Ceremony, offering the option for your quests to enjoy nibbles and refreshments, while you take advantage of our unique grounds for those beautiful wedding photos.
The Courtyard is a private and intimate scene for exchanging your vows or a gorgeous dance floor. The Courtyard is located off the Banquet Room, with adjoining bi-folded doors creating seamless indoor/outdoor flow.
The interior design of our Banquet room reflects the English Tudor style of The Honest Lawyer. Rich and warm dark wooden paneling and historic red brick work cover the walls, and blend with the terracotta tile flooring. The Banquet Room offers a serviced private bar and its own private courtyard, which is ideal for outdoor style seating, or a dance floor. The Banquet Room is ideally located in our main building with ready access to the accommodation upstairs and restaurant and bar areas.
At The Honest Lawyer, we really enjoy working with our future wedding couples to cater for a menu to suit all personalities, tastes and budgets. In The Honest Kitchen we love food! We are really excited to offer some great choices for your special day. If there are any dietary requirements, or you require more of a bespoke menu, we are more than happy to sit and chat to create something together that you and your guests will remember.
We offer a private bar in the Banquet Room and Rustic Barn. Offering several tap beers in the Banquet Room and a range of bottled beer for both the Banquet room and Rustic Barn. We have an extensive range of local and New Zealand wines available. There is an outside bar for your guests to come and enjoy a drink after the ceremony, while you have those all important photographs, either utilising our manicured grounds or elsewhere. We also have our unique serving trolley that we can use on The Point, or outside the main restaurant area to serve your guests drinks and nibbles from.
