The Waterfront is a newly refurbished venue in Dovercourt, Essex, located directly on the seafront. With its stunning sea views and spacious function venue, it really is the perfect location for your Wedding Reception.

We host all of our wedding receptions and events in our purpose-built, air conditioned function venue, named Sally’s. The venue is brand new and constructed with the customer in mind completely. With a huge bar spanning the width of the hall, high ceilings and a unique glass-front exterior, there is truly no other venue like this in the area for your big day.

The space is very versatile, with flexible choices for your table and seating plans. We can cater for up to 100 guests for your wedding breakfast, with capacity for up to 200 total guests for your evening reception with buffet and entertainment.

Your evening reception promises to be just as amazing as the rest of your day, as our hall boasts a state of the art light and sound system, 66 square feet of dance floor and a stage, with our in-house DJ also available upon request.

For your perfect day, there really is nowhere like The Waterfront.
