Venue Review: Pitchfork Restaurant

Pitchfork Restaurant in Peregian Beach is like the venue equivalent of the perfect dress: effortlessly stylish during the day, transitioning into funky elegance in the evening. Six days a week, this place is packed with local clientele – to me, that’s a really good sign you have a winner on your hands. Their gourmet menu changes seasonally, and when you book your wedding you can choose a sit down dinner for up to 90 guests and canape package options to suit all budgets. Alternatively you can host a cocktail reception for up to 120 guests. 

Peregian Beach being the perfect picturesque place for an elopement, Pitchfork Restaurant will even cater for small intimate weddings of 10 guests – as long as you don’t mind some fellow restaurant-goers, who will surely wish you well and add to the joy of your special day, being such a friendly, relaxed little coastal town.
