How it works?
Typically, the same starter, main and dessert is served to the entire party. (although for larger groups additional course choice can de added) If there are any vegetarians, vegans or guests with special dietary requirements we can serve a separate starter and main for them. We are very flexible with our menus, so, if you would like to see more options or add some favourites, please don’t hesitate to ask.
We work with you to pair suitable drinks to accompany your food
We arrive at the property approximately 1-2 hours prior to serving the canapés or first course. This gives us enough time to set up for the evening and finish off the food preparations. Usually we use the crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils within the property, however we can also provide these by prior arrangement.
Front of house and waiting on staff will be provided if required to serve and clear up. Smaller groups will be catered for fully by the chef, unless additional staff are requested.
By prior arrangement we can decorate and prepare the dining table This includes laying of the table (using crockery and cutlery available at the property), fresh flowers, napkins, candles and fairy lights or light box. Otherwise, we ask that the table is laid out by the party themselves.
To confirm a booking we take a small deposit. Once menu choices and final number of guests have been confirmed, a final invoice will be issued and is payable 14 days prior to the event.
