With an in­ti­mate am­bi­ence, amaz­ing food and a grand har­bour view, it’s easy to see why new cou­ples want to ex­change their vows here. Watch­ing the sun set over the sparkling sea while a gen­tle breeze whis­pers ro­man­tic tunes... what a beau­ti­ful way for new­ly­weds to start their new lives to­gether. 澳媒評Gun­ners Bar­racks為『悉尼最美的婚慶地點』!動人的浪漫氣氛,娛悅舌尖的美食,一覽無遺的海濱風光,新人在此交換永恆的誓約。夕陽在海面映射出金燦的波光,海風帶來動人的音樂,人生新的旅程從這裡開始。

Gun­ners' Bar­racks, nes­tled in the bush­land at Mos­man, is one of the five pre­mium host­ing venues owned by the Grand Pa­cific Group. The oth­ers in­clude The Tea Room QVB in Syd­ney, The Blue Room at Bondi Beach, Sergeants Mess at Chower Bay and Dun­bar House at Wat­sons Bay.

“We host all kinds of events such as wed­dings, birth­days, cor­po­rate cel­e­bra­tions and gala din­ners. We play an in­te­gral part in bring­ing peo­ple to­gether to en­joy and cel­e­brate spe­cial mo­ments while cre­at­ing unique ex­pe­ri­ences. I feel very priv­i­leged in this busi­ness and that's what mo­ti­vates me," Manuel Spinola, founder of Grand Pa­cific Group, ex­presses his en­thu­si­asm.

“Hand in hand, till old we grow” - a sa­cred vow amid the spec­ta­cle of mother-na­ture marks the turn­ing point of a new chap­ter in life. Gun­ners' Bar­racks has wit­nessed the solemn knot-ty­ing of many cou­ples.

The Gun­ners' Bar­racks has a long his­tory in the lo­cal area. It was de­signed by colo­nial ar­chi­tect James Bar­nett and was built in 1873. The Bar­racks was the first de­fence build­ing on Syd­ney Har­bour. Lo­cated on one of the Har­bour’s high­points of Ge­orges Heights, it boasts a priv­i­leged panoramic view that is best en­joyed from the large ter­race. “...highly rec­om­mend for func­tions. Not only is the lo­ca­tion amaz­ing, so is the menu and level of ser­vice” is the praise in a re­view from Trip Ad­viser.

Gun­ners' Bar­racks 隸 屬 澳 洲Grand Pa­cific 餐飲集團,其旗下擁有五個豪華婚慶餐飲場地,分別是:維多利亞女王建築(QVB)的 Tea Room QVB,邦迪海灘的 The Blue Room Bondi , Chow­der 海 灣的 Sergeants Mess, Wat­son 海 灣 的Dun­bar House 以及悉尼北濱 Mos­man的 Gun­ners' Bar­racks。

「我們承包很多的慶典,如婚禮,生日宴會,商業活動,晚宴等等。帶給人的是歡樂,愉悅和終身難忘的動人時刻。這樣具有意義的工作讓我們自豪,也激勵著我們提供最完美的服務。」GPG創始人Manuel Spinola 說道。

「執子之手,與子偕老」的美麗誓言,在大自然萬物的見證下,一對對新人走向未來。

Gun­ners' Bar­racks 本身就是座見證著澳洲歷史的建築。根據 Manuel介紹,建築始與 1873 年,是二戰時期悉尼港口畔首座為捍衛和保衛戰而建的軍事基地。其地理位置就是天然的屏障,它處於悉尼北部海濱Mos­man 的高 地 Ge­orge Height,是戰時最佳的瞭望臺,如今,這座建築坐擁登高望遠的天然優勢。

From in­door to out­door, ro­man­tic gar­dens to stun­ning har­bour views, Manuel in­tro­duces the three unique lo­ca­tions in the his­toric build­ing that are per­fect for host­ing func­tions for any­where be­tween 20 to 180 guests.

“Gun­ners' Bar­racks is an ex­clu­sive, her­itage venue nes­tled in Syd­ney’s bush­land, over­look­ing the Syd­ney Har­bour. With its court­yard and har­bour ter­race, it is per­fect for cou­ples who would like an out­door wed­ding. They can ex­change vows on the Har­bour View Lawn, en­joy pre-re­cep­tion drinks and canapes in the gar­dens and host the ban­quet in the din­ing hall which fea­tures cus­tom made lux­ury fur­nish­ings and chan­de­liers. In­ti­mate am­bi­ence, world class din­ing, danc­ing un­der the moon­light, sweep­ing views of Syd­ney... we are un­matched for wed­ding bliss!”

從浪漫花園漫步走向遼闊海灣,這裡被視為悉尼隱藏的寶藏,除了餐飲外,還提供容納20 至 180位客人的室內外場地。

「Gun­ners' Bar­racks 擁有傳統英式花園,非常適合選擇室外婚禮的新人。在海濱交換誓約,在花園內用下午茶敘舊,在室內舉行晚宴。富麗堂皇的水晶吊燈,舒適且浪漫的用餐氣氛,新人可以在星空下起舞,來賓與海上船影及閃爍星光共同見證美好時刻」,Manuel 說。

Gun­ners' Bar­racks 的主廚 Nathan Dar­ling 介紹說,這裡每一樣提供的餐點都是親手製作,「在所有的餐點細節方面,我們都可以根據來賓的飲食要求和文化背景打造合適的菜單,」他說。

視覺上沒有屏障,一覽無遺,是悉尼繁忙生活中高級的休閒場所。無論用餐,下午茶或舉辦婚慶活動,都是無可挑剔的經典。 --全球著名旅遊網站 Trip ad­viser

Nathan 說道,餐廳不單打造菜單,更為貴賓特殊的日子精心策劃。Trip ad­viser 網站有一則對餐廳的反饋寫道:「我走進餐廳跟接待人員說,今天將向女友求婚。而後把戒指交給他們。用餐快結束時,服侍人員將戒指放在精緻的小盤上,另一盤內一塊巧克力標語寫著「你願意嫁給我嗎?」我單膝下跪! 而後音樂和掌聲響起,我們在浪漫且溫馨氣氛中度過,這是我倆一輩子的浪漫回憶」!

行政主廚 Nathan Dar­ling 在英國出生,而後在法國學習餐飲、烹飪技巧,對歐美飲食額外有研究。他將所學和近20年的經驗融入Gun­ners' Bar­racks 餐廳內成為精髓。除了餐點外,下午洋茶(High Tea)也是這裡的經典特色所在,源於17世紀的歐洲宮廷,象徵著貴族,品的是傳統和優雅,享受的是寧靜和歷史。

主廚 Nathan 說道,「考慮到來品茗的人來自各個年齡層,除了使用最新鮮的食材,點心口味和組合能吸引所有客人,無論年輕人和老年人。」

品茗下午茶中除了講究茶,點心,而環境和氣氛更是重要要素, Gun­ners' Bar­racks 最為外界稱讚的特色中,遼闊的美景就是一絕。

Join­ing Grand Pa­cific Group in 2016, Gun­ners' Bar­racks ac­claimed Head Chef, Nathan Dar­ling, em­pha­sizes the qual­ity of hand­made dishes on the menu which is specif­i­cally de­signed for each oc­ca­sion.

On top of fine din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, what sets the venue apart, as Nathan sees it, is the team's drive and pas­sion for ex­cel­lent ser­vice. An­other re­view on Trip Ad­viser re­counts that “When we ar­rived I in­formed the wait staff that I planned to pro­pose to my girl­friend. The staff were amaz­ing. They took my ring and near the end of our high tea pre­sented a plate with words writ­ten in choco­late ‘Will you marry me?’ They had put the en­gage­ment ring on an­other plate. So I dropped to one knee and pro­posed. I couldn’t have asked for any­thing bet­ter.”

We com­mu­ni­cate well with our guests on their food needs and cul­tural back­ground to un­der­stand the de­tails re­quired for the per­fect menu that suits them.”

Nathan was born and raised in Sur­rey, U.K. He be­gan his ca­reer as a chef in his home town. Through work­ing at dif­fer­ent restau­rants, he learned the in­tri­ca­cies and skills of clas­si­cal French tech­niques and two decades of culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence has made him an ex­pert on Euro­pean din­ing. His pas­sion and know-how, drawn from his clas­si­cal train­ing with Bri­tish and French in­flu­ences, have en­hanced the Gun­ners' Bar­racks a La Carte of­fer­ings and re­vi­tal­ized the tra­di­tional high tea ser­vice.

Con­sid­er­ing the age span of high tea pa­trons, Nathan Dar­ling fo­cuses on us­ing the fresh­est in­gre­di­ents pos­si­ble for a re­mark­able menu in which the clas­sic flavours and com­bi­na­tions will ap­peal to all guests, young and old.

The tea va­ri­eties, the del­i­ca­cies, the en­vi­ron­ment, and the her­itage - Gun­ners' Bar­racks has them all. What bet­ter way to hon­our the time­less tra­di­tion of high tea than in this his­toric and en­chant­ing es­tab­lish­ment?
