In the 1800’s and early 1900’s the area now known as Brandy Hole was popular for the smuggling of contraband goods. The goods consisted of wine, brandy and tea. The smugglers had found a natural dip or ‘Hole’ in the river bed where they hid their goodies, hence the name.
From the early 30’s until 2010 Brandy Hole was a run down, members only yacht club. Debbie Knifton became the new owner of the riverside wedding venue in august 2010 and gave the whole building and grounds an entire refurbishment, creating the slick interior we know today. In May of 2016 Debbie and the team had made the decision to focus on weddings, events and private hire as opposed to the restaurant it once was.

‘Booked this venue back in March to host my wedding which took place yesterday and I have to say the staff and management there made the day such a wonderful success. The food was amazing, the staff were so attentive and helpful and all my 170 guests enjoyed a fabulous party. The brandy hole is a hidden gem in a beautiful riverside location perfect for a celebration. My new husband and I recommend you check it out. Thank you all at the Brandy Hole, you went above and beyond to make our day much more than the best it could be.’
