Gather your nearest and dearest to share your first meal together ...

Channelling our ‘good times call for good meals’ ethos, your wedding breakfast will feature a carefully-designed menu tailored to your individual celebration. Served under the decadent beams of our Warehouse, your first meal as a married couple will be hand-prepared by our experienced chefs using carefully-selected gourmet ingredients. 

With a combined total of over 30 years in the food industry, and having spent time travelling around the country to develop their menus, the culinary team at Bonded Warehouse are immensely passionate about their food. Our menu showcases the talents of Executive Chef Michael Johnson, born and raised in Sunderland, offering the likes of 32-day aged roast Hereford sirloin with all the trimmings. With vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options all available, as well as half portions for children, rest-assured that everyone in your party will be carefully considered.

We believe in the art of hedonism. With generous dining and dancing space, Bonded Warehouse knows how to host a party. 

From your first dance until your last, we’re here to make sure your night is as memorable as your day. Our Warehouse offers the perfect set-up and acoustics for live entertainment paired with access to our large walled courtyard that enables guests to enjoy a quiet, private, outdoor space. Fuel those dance floor filling guests with some of the best North East street food available.
