Vbase are delighted to be managing the recently opened ilex Café and Events; a truly magical venue nestled in the heart of the beautiful Christchurch Botanic Gardens.

Overlooking the Avon River, the light and airy function room offers a truly unique setting for your event including wedding receptions, cocktail parties, meetings and gala dinners. With exceptional indoor outdoor flow guests can enjoy the elegance and unspoilt beauty of the gardens all year round.

In addition to the function room, which can accommodate up to 120 people for meetings and dinners, or 150 for cocktails, the venue also boasts an attractive Café. Open daily to the public, ilex Café offers a delightful space for a social catch up with friends, a special lunch or just a deliciously hot coffee for your stroll through the gardens.
