A wide range of menus to suit your tastes and budgets

Whatever kind of event you have in mind, you can be certain that all ingredients will be individually sourced – from local suppliers wherever possible – and all items will be freshly prepared for your event in our own well-equipped kitchen.

The following menus are simply by way of suggestions, and we will be delighted to discuss your individual wishes with you. We will of course, take into account any special food preferences, such as vegetarian or vegan food, and we can also provide catering for those with various intolerances for ingredients such as wheat or dairy products.
