Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the minimum number of guests?

 50 adults or adult equivalents.

0-4 years old are free
5-12 years old @ 50% of the adult price
13 years and older @ full adult price

For example
50 adults plus 2 x 13 y.o. children 
equates to 50 adults + (2 x 0.5) = 51 adult equivalents

 

Can we bring our own alcohol?

Pioneer Country is fully licensed and to retain our liquor license we must control all sales and supply of liquor on site.  Therefore alcohol is not to be brought onto the premises by either the client, guests or 3rd party service providers. 

Fortunately this means it is Pioneer Country’s responsibility to ensure all bar staff are responsible service of alcohol trained. It also means you do NOT have to apply to the NSW Dep. of Liquor & Gaming  for a temporary liquor license because we already have an on-premises liquor license. 

Our liquor license goes until 12 mid night.

 

Can we bring our own caterer or food trucks?

Pioneer Country would prefer to provide our own catering because we can control the quality and hygiene (& our reputation). We offer a variety of options to suit all tastes and styling. You can choose from night market food stations, buffet, shared platters, alternate serves, seated and cocktail style (standing with fork food). However, if you have your heart set on a specific caterer or food truck and they have a NSW mobile food catering certificate then please introduce them so we can check their suitability.
Pioneer Country can also recommend some proven 3rd party caterers once we know your food style preferences and budget. 

The Pioneer Country venue hire includes styling and event management, what other service providers (expenses) will I require?

Pioneer Country recommends you organise at least the following services and that they be booked in the following order:
1. celebrant
2. photographer/videographer
3. cake 
4. flowers
(bridal party flowers, table arrangements optional, chapel arrangements optional)
5. music (either DJ or live musicians)

 

 

Is it cheaper to book mid-week?

Bookings Monday to Friday enjoy a 5 % discount on venue hire and food. 

Due to increased labour costs Sundays and public holidays incur a 15 % surcharge.
