The Country House is a wedding and event venue with more than five decades of service. Owner James Esposito transformed The Country House in 1980 after taking over the facility from his parents who ran it as a restaurant beginning in 1959. Since that time, the Esposito family has extended their warmth, dedication, and unparalleled service to guests.

Located conveniently between interstates 91 and 95 in East Haven, CT, The Country House is just minutes from downtown New Haven and many points along the Connecticut shore. Our venue offers affordability and convenience with top-notch cuisine and service. We hold only one event at a time so that we can provide undivided, personal attention to our guests. Bridal consultant Olivia Quiello guides couples planning their weddings at The Country House through every step of the process.

The Country House is traditionally decorated and features a cocktail lounge accented in warm mahogany. When the New England temperatures dip outside, our two fireplaces are ablaze providing warmth and simple elegance.

Our cuisine is expertly prepared by executive chef Joe Onorato and his team. They are known for creating delicious hors d’oeuvres and entrées and are always happy to customize your menu. We offer many special options ranging from specialty coffees, such as cappuccino, espresso and lattés, to frozen drinks. Read less

We cannot thank The Country House enough for creating the wedding of our dreams! Words truly cannot express how happy we were with their services. They were so easy and flexible to work with and made our experience stress-free. Our guests raved about how beautiful the venue looked and how delicious the food was. The reception was absolutely beautiful, smooth, worry free and we were able to focus on each other and our loved ones because of their hard work and dedication. All of our family and friends are still talking about how much fun they had!

The Country House is wonderful! The food is so delicious (and plentiful!), wait staff is very attentive, and the value is like no other venue we viewed. We had almost 200 people at our wedding with a photobooth, candy station, favors, and additional items decorations (even though they decorate beautifully for the season). The set up was perfect! Guests had plenty of room for seating, dancing, and enjoying all of the entertainment and food throughout the Country House. Also, the entire staff was so helpful; our entire experience fun and easy from our first viewing to after the reception concluded. I would definitely recommend the Country House!!

Jimmy and his team were AWESOME!!! We had buffet style reception with open bar. Jimmy and Olivia helped us with everything making sure we had exactly what we wanted and more. The banquet room was beautiful, the food was delicious, we are still getting compliments on the food. Prices were reasonable for everything that was included. We would definitely recommend Country house to anyone.

We couldn't have asked for more. Olivia and her staff went above and beyond. We had a chance of rain so we were not sure if we would be getting married at our original outside place or at the Country House. But at the very last minute we had to change plans and get married at the Country House and the staff was amazing. Everything worked out beautifully. They didnt miss a beat. We had everything we asked for and then some. Our wedding was one to remember <3

Jimmy and Olivia and the entire crew at the Country House did a fantastic job! All the details were attended to. The venue has recently been renovated and it is beautiful. My guests raved about the appetizers, there is an abundance of them and they were delicious. We had surf and turf and chicken and both entrees were delicious! The Country House was a great value and a wonderful venue. I would highly recommend them!

I wish I could rate the Country House more than 5 stars. They were fantastic! Everything went perfect from our first visit where we met the owner and he gave us food to take home and try to the last moment where they waited for our shuttle to the hotel to pick us up almost an hour after our wedding was over. The food was amazing and the place was perfect for us. Go there!!!
