We were lucky enough to have our small intimate wedding at Brown Sugar. Michael and all his staff were so friendly and helpful and everyone enjoyed themselves. Such a wonderful setting, everything was perfect, and the food was as delicious as it always is in the restaurant. I’d like to thank Michael and the team at Brown Sugar for everything they did and I hope they can reopen soon. Thoroughly recommend.

We absolutely adored the service from Michael, his professionalism and genuine friendliness really made the whole wedding planning process much easier. Thank you so much for allowing us to take over your gorgeous space for our wedding. The Reno’s are absolutely stunning, and absolutely perfect. The wait staff for the night and the supervisor were all super professional, with lovely service. When we are back in Newy we shall pop in for dinner. Thanks so much guys!
