The Pier House is the perfect venue for a fresh, modern occasion with plenty of nearby accommodation for all of your guests.

The Pier House is licensed to hold marriage ceremonies and is set in an amazing location for stunning photographs to treasure for a lifetime. We allocate each wedding with a dedicated wedding venue planner and Master of Ceremonies to ensure your special day is all you dreamed it to be. Our talented chefs have created a wealth of banquet choices and buffets which will be sure to compliment the breathtaking scenery from the venue. Take advantage of our sunset terraces where you and your guests will be able to relax, enjoy the day and take in the wonder that is The Pier House.
We have disabled access and free parking at the venue and also are able to provide accommodation should yourselves or any member of the wedding party wish to stay.

The Pier House is licensed to hold marriage ceremonies in the stunning Bay Suite with breathtaking views of the sea, creating the perfect backdrop to start your life together. Fusing chic and contemporary design with the hues of the surrounding ocean and pebble ridge, The Pier House offers a remarkable and stylish venue for any wedding ceremony or reception. There are practically no limits to what can be done here. The Bay Suite, with it’s own bar and food serving facilities, offers a private and versatile function room. The bar and restaurant is perfect for a more intimate occasion, and most striking of all, perhaps, is the glass fronted terrace which stretches the length of the building, overlooking the wild, wonderful ocean and the rugged Abbotsham Cliffs. The terrace and stunning coastal views offer fantastic photo opportunities for any couple and the perfect romantic moment watching the sun set in newly-wedded bliss with a glass of something sparkling. If photos on the beach are a must have for your big day, the stretching sands of Westward Ho! are only a moment’s walk away.

With fabulous sculptures, bespoke china light fittings emulating shoals of fish and beautiful calligraphy throughout the beams of the bar, the essence of the seaside is never far away. This is the perfect venue for a fresh, modern occasion with plenty of nearby accommodation for all of your guests.
