Christmas Market 2018

Our 2018 Christmas Market at Barton Marina was a huge success. We had thousands of people visit us over the 2 day event with queues of up to 2 miles along the A38.

We had a wide selection of stalls from traditional German sausages to unique gifts.

Saturday saw Gia October perform throughout the day and Sunday we welcomed Uttoxeter Brass Band.

Plans are already being made for our monthly markets starting April 2019 and special 2 day events throughout the year.

Italian Night

The Waterfront hosted the first Italian Night on Wednesday 21st November.


Every culture around the world has its own authentic cuisine, delicacies, and everyday food. Italy is no exception. In fact, Italian food is one of the most famous types of cuisine found around the world, often with a local adjustment made.

Antonio created a 6 course tasting menu from Minestrone Soup to Cod Livornese with Risotto Pear & Gorgonzola, Crespelle alla Fiorentina to Torta della Nonna.


We are planning our next pop up Italian Night in 2019. Keep an eye out for more details in early 2019.

It has been a blockbuster of a Wedding Season for Bronwyn and The Crow’s Nest team. Here’s what some of the happy couples had to say about there big day!
We then finished off the busy summer with our Autumn Wedding Fayre on Sunday 21st October which had an amazing turn out.

I was married here on Saturday and just wow, Bronwyn and the team went to the ends of the earth to make sure everything ran smoothly, even when our room dresser didn’t carry out the work agreed Bronwyn went the extra mile to make sure that the room looked beautiful and didn’t even break a sweat! The venue is stunning the staff are wonderful and the food was gorgeous, everything exceeded our expectations and we had a truly wonderful day! They know what they are doing from start to finish and they saved our day! Amazing amazing amazing!

Alana & Matthew Youds 13.10.18

We got married here last weekend (13.10.18) and I can’t express how good it was.

We have had so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was, how good the food was and how smoothly everything ran. People have even gone as far as saying it’s the best wedding they have been to!

Bronwyn and her team did an amazing job from start to finish. She was always quick to give me answers on things, kept me updated through out, helped to resolve any little issues I had and was very very accommodating with both ours and our guests needs and requests. On the day the change over of the room was seamless and people couldn’t believe how quickly it was done.

If you are looking for a perfect venue for your perfect big day then look no further! Absolutely amazing!

Summer would not be the same without a quiche, this year we are offering a warm red pepper and goats cheese quiche with new potatoes & a rocket, tomato & red onion salad. Delicious in this lovely warm weather!
