    Excellent experience

    The great staff here did an amazing job of making our wedding day special. From the signature drinks to the extensive menu, everything was excellent. The staff made sure we were well fed and looked after in the hustle and bustle of taking photos, greeting family etc. We had so many people tell us that our wedding was a great time and the food was top notch. We highly recommend The View to all! - Evan & Ginny

    an amazing day

    We got married at View April 2019 after an exhaustive search of venues in Suffolk. We were looking for something beautiful, in our budget but would also allow for the laid back fun vibe we were hoping to convey. First, let me just take a moment to say that the venue itself is beautiful and elegant but simple and really allows you to make the space your own. I have celiac’s disease and it was very important to me that the venue be knowledgeable and accommodating. I got all of that and more from the View. Jimmy, Joe (my gluten free guru) and Courtney were absolutely superb. In every meeting I felt like they understood what I wanted, took my requests and concerns seriously and executed a flawless day for my husband and I. Everything looked beautiful, tasted amazing and ran right on schedule. Thank you to everyone at View for a truly amazing day!
