The Bargeman's Rest - Events

At The Bargeman’s Rest we offer many different function packages, from weddings to conferences, we can cater for almost anyone.

Wedding Hire

The Sail Loft provides an informal yet charming reception venue for up to 100 guests. The first storey function room is available for hire all year round for wedding celebrations. We’re licensed to hold civil ceremonies, which allows you and your guests to relax and enjoy both the wedding service and the celebrations rather than be distracted by the stress of moving between locations.

This large and flexible space includes a full bar area and dance floor together with a large private balcony overlooking the River Medina and harbour at Little London.  This not only allows you more space to enjoy the day but can also provide an attractive and interesting backdrop for your wedding photos.

The Sail Loft is already attractively decorated with a traditional maritime theme so you are able to dress the room as much or as little as you please. The team at The Bargeman’s Rest is more than happy to assist you with all these arrangements so you can really make the Sail Loft your own for the day. The full on-site catering facilities provide a complete range of set menus with prices from £7.25 to £17.95 per head and once again these can also be adjusted to suit your personal requirements. Simply discuss your ideas with the team to create a bespoke menu.

So if you are planning to get married in or around Newport, the Sail Loft is perfectly located. It’s within easy walking distance of the town centre with lots of parking available close by. Alternatively why not allow the Sail Loft to host your whole day from organising the wedding service to serving the breakfast and providing your entertainment whilst you spend more time with each other, your friends and family.
