“We don’t have a lot of set ‘rules’ at The Gables,” said banquet manager Kelly Donahue. “We can adapt to any type of event and are happy to work with you to make it extra-special.”
Scope out these reasons why you should book your next event with us:
1. Always Great Food
Chef Dave Wenerd and his talented kitchen staff put the same attention to detail you taste in the restaurant into every special event menu. You’re getting The Gables’ quality whether you choose a plated or buffet event. From freshly baked breakfast pastries to filet mignon, everything is prepared to perfection. Need to accommodate food sensitivities or preferences? We’re at your service.
2. Amazing Ambience
Our spacious loft houses our private banquet room that oozes charm. A high ceiling, exposed beams, huge windows and a dedicated bar area enable us to transform the space into just-the-right atmosphere for meetings, parties and weddings alike.
In mild weather, smaller parties and meetings can choose our outdoor patio. You’ll be nestled away among stone walls and seasonal greenery for a private, comfortable event. Hosting al fresco is a unique way to “wow” your guests.
3. Reasonable Room Fees
Rental fees shouldn’t be a barrier to acquiring a beautiful event space. We’ve priced ours accordingly to vary with the season, day of the week and time of day. Our weekday rates, in particular, can’t be beat. Plus, we include standard white table linens, napkins, china, glassware, flatware, tea light candles, use of the outdoor terrace, room set-up and clean-up. Ask us about our wedding ceremony fee that includes white folding chairs, ceremony tent insurance, set-up, break-down and use of our terrace and wedding suite; the ceremony tent fee is reasonable, too!
4. One-Stop Shopping
We take the hassle out of nailing the details. We work with trusted vendors to secure audio-visual equipment, microphones, sound systems and speakers. Our vendor recommendations also extend to child care, invitations, florists, local accommodations, photographers and so much more. We’ve worked with these pros many times and are confident they’ll serve you well.
5. Convenient Location
Yes, you can get here from there, thanks to our prime location on Baltimore Pike (Route 1) in Chadds Ford. We’re minutes from Route 202 and Route 52 and are a hop, skip and a jump from central, western and southern Chester County and northern Delaware. We boast ample free parking, too!
“At the end of the day, we know what matters is a stress-free, fun and successful event,” Kelly added. “We treat everyone with the same level of care whether you’re hosting a corporate luncheon or a large wedding. We’re adept at the details so you don’t have to fret—that’s our specialty!”
The Gables at Chadds Ford is nestled in the heart of the historic Brandywine Valley.
