Minimum numbers. Our menu prices are based on a minimum of 50 full paying adult guests. Numbers below 50 adults are charged at a higher rate and are subject to quotation.
Menu selection. Please select one starter, one main course and one dessert for your entire party, plus a vegetarian alternative. If you wish to upgrade individual courses to the next package, organise a menu with multiple choices or create a bespoke menu, please ask for a quotation.
Food intolerances and allergies. Many food intolerances and allergies can be catered for with some minor adjustments to the menu selected. Where something completely different is required please ask and we will endeavour to make suitable arrangements. Please note, in our busy kitchens we cannot guarantee the absence of trace elements of any known allergens. In the case of severe or life threatening allergies, we may outsource our obligations to a specialist third party provider or request that the guest makes their own suitable arrangements. Please ask to see our allergen information pdf for full list of allergens for each menu.
Tables and chairs. A top table (long or round), a selection of round tables and natural wood banquet chairs are supplied by the venue for your use. Banquet style tables and tablecloths can be organised if preferred, via an outside supplier, for an additional supplement as well as alternative chairs if required.
Table linen. White table linen is included based on a top table of 8 - 10 guests (long or round) and all remaining guests sharing round tables of ten. You may use additional tables, if available, from the stock of tables at the venue but additional round tablecloths are charged at £15.00 + VAT each and additional trestle tablecloths at £10.00 + VAT each. Coloured linen can be organised if preferred, via an outside supplier, for an additional supplement.

Cake of cheese must be served with our cake of cheese accompaniment option on our evening snacks menu.
Children’s meals. The children’s menu is for all children aged 2-12 years who would prefer to not have the adult meal. We recommend that if a child is under 2 years old that you may wish to arrange with the parents to bring something more suitable. Guests aged 13 years and over are charged at the full adult rate but are welcome to have the children’s meal if they wish.

Musicians and bands that are due in the evening, can be provided with either a main course crew meal with a soft drink for £15.00 per head + VAT or with extra portions of your evening food at the stated evening menu price. We will endeavour to cater for any of their dietary needs but this may not always be possible.
