The Willows is one of the best event catering venues Melbourne has to offer. From the moment you walk through the door, a team of professionals will work with you to create an unforgettable occasion. What could be more perfect?

A restaurant setting such as The Willows allows you, the event organiser, to express a sense of style, sophistication and care for your guests. The ambience, exceptional service and seamless presentation will all reflect generously on you, allowing you to feel you have achieved what you set out to do.


The Benefits

From corporate functions to weddings or social events, restaurant-held events have become common practice in the contemporary landscape. And for a good reason.

If you have an event coming up, here are some benefits of using a restaurant:

1.      Ambience

With unforgettable architecture, and lush, mature surrounds, The Willows brings sophistication, inspiration and calm to your event.

With a range of function rooms available, indoor and outdoor spaces, gardens, a courtyard and charming interiors, the scene is set for a memorable occasion.

2.      Support

With decades of experience in creating sensational functions, The Willows event management team will talk you through your event plans. Our professional team are adept at communicating, advising, and providing solutions. We can also provide the extras you will need to ensure your event runs smoothly. The Willows houses on-site audio visual equipment, lecterns, microphones, sound systems, and more. This saves you time, money and undue stress.

3.      Food and Drinks

The Willows’ menu is extensive, flexible and accommodating. Whatever the size or style of your event, this restaurant can meet your needs.

With so much to think about already, cooking and cleaning is the last thing you want on your plate. While self-catering may seem economical, consider the range of different dietary requirements, tastes and desires you may encounter. Then there is the cost and time involved in sourcing ingredients, and the time spent planning and preparing the food. Not to mention all the extras required for serving and enjoying food and beverages. Oh, and don’t forget the cleaning up!

The Willows restaurant takes all of this off your shoulders and gives you time to focus on the nuances of the event itself.

4.      Location

The Willows is centrally located with parking, access for guests with mobility issues, and close public transport options. You can be sure your guests will be comfortable getting to and from your event.

A privately organised event location can present unforeseen complications, logistical barriers, and disappointments for guests, all of which can, unfortunately, reflect on you. This is something you will want to avoid.

Holding an event at Melbourne’s best function venue allows you to tailor your event to the vision you have without taking on all of the leg work. All your needs can be discussed prior to the date, so there are no unwelcome surprises.

You can rest assured the stunning surrounds of The Willows will not disappoint. For more information, contact us or visit our function rooms page and start planning today.
