The desserts were spectacular - rich, gooey chocolate cake with ice cream and fantastic sticky toffee pudding with delicious sauce. Mains of gammon and beef cooked in their own beer were also good. Staff were friendly and efficient. The restaurant was spacious and cool. A good choice for lunch.

Had our wedding reception here in October 2012. We liked the thought of the Hilden Brewery Tap Room especially after going for dinner several times before. We booked the venue following discussions with the staff and organised to meet the Manageress.

Organising a wedding from a different country is a difficult undertaking but all discussions held with the Manageress were great and following reading a few of the reviews on trip advisor we had some questions. Our minds were put at ease following our meetings and all our questions were answered with all information required.

We visited several days before our wedding just to finalise a few points which the staff were more than happy to assist with. On the evening prior we were given access to set up the upstairs function room which was easy as the staff had already done much of the work for us.

On the day, when our guests arrived they were greeted by the staff with great attitude and helpfulness. This was mirrored with us upon our arrival. They had assisted with our musicians, and made sure that everyone was having a good time.

The manageress was excellent in reminding us of our schedule. This meant that our food was a perfect temperature when we were seated for our meal. The food itself was excellent. It was well cooked and served in great time for the maximum number of people that the upstairs function room can hold (110).

Again following our meal we were informed of our other entertainment which was ready to commence. This again ensured the smooth running of the evening. We had FirePoise in the back yard on the patio and then the James Peak Experience back inside.

During the break in the band's set list, a barbecue (which had been lit earlier) was ready at just the right time and our guests were very impressed with both the timing and quality of the barbecue.

Overall, we were very impressed with the venue, the food, the drinks but most of all the helpfulness of the staff - in particular Frances, Ruairi, Sarah and Lisa.

I got married here in June. We had a smallish wedding (about 65 people) and organised with Lisburn council to have the ceremony here as well as the reception. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and the wine list reasonably priced and good quality. It was just a wonderful day all round and I would definitely recommend.

We had our wedding at Hilden at the start of April 2013 and it was absolutely fantastic. We chose Hilden due its uniqueness and its beauty, there really isn't anywhere else out there like it. The place was picturesque, we were able to have our photographs taken in the magnificent gardens, the food was delicious, the wine and beer were fantastic, the staff were friendly, helpful and very efficient and everything happened as planned. In the build up to the big day we received plenty of support and guidance from everyone at Hilden and we were able to make this unique venue even more personal by decorating it as we wanted. We really had a dream day at Hilden and are looking forward to returning on anniversaries and special occasions. All our guests had a fantastic time and have praised us for having our wedding at such a delightful place.

Was very disappointed at the customer care/service we were given at my daughter's wedding earlier this month. This an idyllic setting for a wedding but it is a shame the owners provide such a poor service and do not honour what they have agreed to provide. From not providing enough food for the guests and skimping on portions to not providing electric for the wedding tepees ( there is loads more) we narrowly avoided having a disastrous day. They even had a group of foreign visitors drinking among the wedding guests when the venue was supposed to be for our exclusive use. They went back on their word on most of the arrangements so do not trust any verbal agreements made with these owners. This is an exceptionally expensive venue, go elsewhere! Owners not prepared to discuss issues, were rude and actually screamed at my daughter and her husband. Such a shame that this venue is not managed by more capable persons who have an understanding of what the hospitality business is about and can deliver what they promise. Avoid at all costs. We will never be back .
