  • We had our reception at Whitby castle recently. It pains me to write this but I feel as though we should share our experience so others will know honestly what to expect. We were promised things such as- food items during the cocktail hour, bridal attendant during the reception, passed signature welcome cocktail and more, that were not present on the day of. The service and attention to detail was extremely poor. We made a big effort to be able to attend our cocktail hour and when we got there we were appalled and shocked by what we saw. The food stations were empty with no one refilling it until my husband (the groom) had to track down a server to fix the issue. Guests who were on the far side of the deck never got passed h'orderves brought to them. There was a line of guests wrapped around the deck trying to order a drink-- we could not understand why this was happening until we realized there was only 1 bartender serving our 130 guests. We brought this as well to the mai... Read more

  • We had our daughter's wedding at the Whitby Castle last evening, and it was more than amazing. Under the skilled professional leadership of Linda Bennett ,Sales Manager and Sean McGaw, General Manager and their excellent team, this wedding from start to finish was greater than we could have possibly imagined. After being on pins and needles for nearly a year and a half with the transition to Lessing's management, we couldn't have been more delighted. The wait staff, bartenders and everyone else including one of Sean's assistants who made sure our entrance to the reception was pristine, we highly recommend this venue. The Whitby is back under Lessing's management to five star. Evelyn Llewellyn And Mike Lonski, Old Greenwich, Ct

  • We held our rehearsal dinner here the night before our wedding. We got a lot of food for our value and were completely satisfied. My father and brother have a food allergy and Will was super accommodating to their needs. We were apparently supposed to get an ice cream set up along with everything, but there was so much down time after dinner, we just wanted to leave since we were getting married the next day. But we really have no complaints and would definitely use them again! They were great.

  • One of the best decisions we made was having our reception at Whitby Castle. Samantha is the person who helped coordinate our wedding and is the main reason we booked with Whitby (aside from the fact that it's a gorgeous castle!). I should also note that Whtiby just had major renovations done before our wedding took place. They added stunning hardwood floors to the ballroom and hallway, moved the bridal suite upstairs (check out the pictures online because it’s unbelievable) and are adding a groom suite. The groom suite wasn’t ready when we had our wedding but we really didn’t care because everything else was so top notch. When looking for our reception venue we looked at over 20 different locations, including Castle on the Hudson, the Delamar, Inn at Longshore, and so many others. Whitby was, hands down, the best venue for us. It offered a stunning and elegant setting for our wedding, without being pretentious, and Samantha was the most helpful and organized wedding c...

  • We looked at a variety of venues throughout Westchester County and only one venue impressed us! It was the Whitby Castle of course! It only got better from the time we signed our contract. Our maitre d', Samantha was so AMAZING and extremely accommodating in every way imaginable! She answered all of our questions in a timely manor, provided us with suggestions when asked, and helped make our fairy tale wedding to perfection! She helped make our wedding so magical as our guests keep telling us that is was the best wedding ever! All of our guests raved about how delicious the food was, how beautiful the venue was, and how friendly and accommodating the staff was on the day of our wedding. We don't know what we would have done without Samantha! She went above and beyond her duties. The Whitby also remodeled inside the castle, making it absolutely stunning! If you want the most magical fairy tale wedding, then the Whitby Castle is your venue! We wish we could do it all over again :) It ... Read more

  • So glad we chose Whitby for our venue. The venue is beautiful. The ballroom didn't feel like a ballroom at all given the number of windows that let natural light in. The cocktail hour on the deck was relaxed. The staff was attentive and celebrative. Most of all - working with Whitby was easy. Andrew Richter helped us every step of the way - suggesting dishes, timing for the wedding, coordinating with other vendors, and being incredibly responsive with any question we had. The entire staff was both professional and friendly. I highly, highly recommend this venue to anyone considering a venue in Fairfield or Westchester. Your event will be classy, memorable, and fun.

  • Whitby Catering is the exclusive caterer of Morris Yacht and Beach Club where we had our reception. Their service is spectacular! Megan who was the assigned sales associate to the venue was very accommodating and easy to work with. My mother who is very picky enjoyed their food and was very happy with their service. The cocktail hour was very enjoyable and the bar was set up very nicely, the servings and portions are generous, the tables were decorated the way I wanted which is very important to me, the servers were very attentive, and they are fairly reasonably priced. They are just one of my favorite vendors!! Just excellent!!

  • The Whitby Castle is, by far, Westchester's most stunning and unique wedding venue. My husband and I had our wedding reception there in October and it was everything we wanted...excellent food, friendly waitstaff, professional service, gorgeous setting for pictures, and a stress-free mindset for all the planning details. If you are looking for a beautiful location that is different than the typical reception halls, look no further. The Whitby Castle is truly "magical." Your wedding day will be fun and memorable in every aspect!

  • We had our daughter's wedding at Whitby Castle. We cannot say enough about the entire experience. The setting, the Castle itself - they are just magical. It is the perfect venue in so many ways. Andrew Richter, the Director of Sales, is a great person to work with. His advice is terrific, he is not about high pressure, you feel so confident in him as your are planning your event - you just know it will go perfectly. And it certainly did! Cocktail hour on the deck was amazing - the quality and quantity of the hor d'houerves was amazing! The food at the reception was more like fine dining than your typical wedding reception food. The service was impeccable. Even the amazing wedding cake by Lulu's was served on a beautifully decorated plate. Great attention to detail here! The servers were also terrific! Everyone was so nice and pleasant! Can't say enough about Whitby! Do yourself a favor and go check it out!!!

  • I couldn't have been happier working Megan and Andrew for our event. I have to say that the venue is spectacular with breathtaking views (even though it rained on my wedding day) They were responsive to my requests, fairly reasonably priced and the service and quality you get is spectacular. I was very happy with The Whitby Castle and would recommend them to anyone looking for special attention on their special day.

  • LOVED it. They were accommodating, and so easy to work with. Very responsive and there to help on my special day... I didn't do a thing. I am so thankful I went here... they got and did everything I wanted. I looked forever for the right venue all over Westchester and probably went to 30 different venues total. Everyone gave me a hard time and stopped contacting me as soon as I started talking "price negotiations"... Whitby was beautiful and perfect. The food was good- the venue is beautiful with the renovations from last yr... don't look any further. This is a beautiful spot (and sort of a hidden secret in W.Chester-- so they may have the day you want available!)

  • We just had our event at Whitby Castle. Megan and Andrew our catering consultants were so wonderful. The event could not have been better, all our guests raved about the food and the service. I strongly recommend Whitby Castle. They even helped us find another venue and catered our rehearsal dinner, it was the best day ever!

  • The Whitby is the perfect venue for a wedding. The backdrop of the castle and the scenery overlooking the golf course make for great pictures. Andrew and Courtney were such a pleasure to work with...they are professional, personable, willing to work with you on every detail, and were always responsive to any communication (email, phone, etc.). The food was outstanding, our kudos to the chef at the Whitby for having a great menu to offer. Overall, we would recommend the Whitby to anyone looking for that castle feel. Our wedding was perfect in part to all of the people at Whitby castle.
