Do you include staff within your quotes?


We include all cutlery and crockery as well as staffing within our quotes. We tend to work to a 1 to 15 staff ratio which ensures your guests are always looked after to the highest level. Our staff are there to help as much or as little as you need, from handing out canapes, to directing your guests, let's chat about your staffing requirements.




What about glasses and linen?


It is quite often that your venue will provide these for you, however if this isn't the case please let us know and we can source these for you. We hire these in at a very reasonable rate, and can offer you all shapes, colours and sizes to perfectly match your wedding design.




When you do you need to know final numbers?


We try to be as flexible as possible with you as we know you've got lots to think about! That's why we ask for final numbers, menu choices and dietary requirements 3 months prior to your special day. It does however, makes sense for you to decide your food choices before your complimentary tasting.




We've got a few vegans, is that okay?


We cater to all dietary requirements, and we do it well. As we make all your food either the day before, or on the day of your wedding our expert chefs can ensure that your dietary requirements are absorbed within the menu and each and every one of your guests feel like they have been looked after. Ask us for what we can specifically do for your menu.




Can you offer tea and coffee with our cake?


Absolutely we can! We use the fabulous Clifton Coffee who not only match our sustainability beliefs, they also provide amazing coffee and a wide selection of herbal teas. Why not add this on for £2.50 per guest for when you serve the cake.




Can you do evening food?


We truly do offer the full package, and prices for evening food start at £4.50 per guest. We know your guests dietary requirements, and hopefully a few names by now so why not entrust us to look after your whole day. From loaded fries to cheese boards, there are lots of options! We can even do the bar service for you too.




You can run the bars too?


Why not take the pressure off yourselves and allow us to look after your bar for you. We can either offer complimentary bar hire, (with an extremely achievable £500 minimum spend) where your guests pay for their drinks themselves, or a number of other options. One of our most popular bar options is the unlimited Beer, Wine and Gin Bar - from £16 per guest, inclusive of all refrigeration, glassware and staff, it's a no brainer! Fancy something extra special? Why not go for our unlimited cocktail bar with expert mixologists, £28 per guest.




Can you just staff our bar if we buy the alcohol?


If this is an option you prefer we can do this. There is a £400 fee for us to set up the bar, inclusive of refrigeration and glassware. You will also need to pay for the staff, at £12 per staff member, and we would usually recommend 3 per 100 guests.




Is VAT included in your prices?


VAT is not included, it is added at the prevailing rate at the time of your final payment.




Do your prices change for 2023 bookings?


Our prices for 2023 are two courses for £35.50 and three courses for £40.50.
